Touching Your Face, Head and Scalp
The image above of the “man” demonstrates the areas on the body where we have the most nerve endings per square inch and your hands are way up there. We need to have lots of nerve endings on our hands for fine motor coordination and because our hands are the most common way in which we interact with our environment.
This practice begins the more tactile portion of our body awakening program. Today we are going to explore sensations on your face, head and scalp using a variety of different touch modalities, from soft gentle touch on your face to deep scratches on your scalp. Begin to notice where you are most sensitive in these areas and what type of touch your prefer. As you continue to touch yourself notice if you feel sensations in any other part of your body.
