“In every branch of the practice of medicine, touching should always be considered an indispensible part of the doctor’s art…the doctor should know that the human touch is capable of achieving in soothing ruffled feelings, in assuaging pain, in relieving distress, in giving reassurance, in making, in short, all the difference in the world… Touch always enhances the doctor’s therapeutic abilities and the patient’s recuperative capabilities.
