    Dear SomaSimplers and DNM practitioners!

    For the past year i have been diligently following these forums, twitter, facebook groups and discussions regarding manual therapy, pain, the skin and touch.

    Also, i had the opportunity to attend a DNM course by Diane Jacobs in Norway.

    This bachelor's thesis used DNM references collected by Diane Jacobs as of November 2015, in conjunction with recent PubMed and Science Direct articles. Attached you will find the culmination of my years work regarding the role of touch in manual therapy, presented in my physiotherapy program of 2016.

    This thesis was published in the database of theseus.fi as well:

    Criticism is highly welcomed!

    Thank you Diane

    The objective of this study was to identify the role of touch in the context of manual therapy as an intervention. For this purpose, the importance of the skin was addressed as to provide a wider understanding of the topic. In addition, investigations of the effects of manual therapy on pain were questioned.

    The method used to write this thesis was an integrated literature review with resemblance to a systematic literature review. Relevant articles published from 2006 to 2016 established a preliminary inclusion criterion. Moreover, the search was conducted using three databases: PubMed, Science Direct and a collection of references mentioned in the body of the text. Mesh Terms included the combination of “manual therapy” AND “skin”, “manual therapy” AND “therapeutic touch”, “chronic pain” AND therapeutic touch”, “neuropathic pain AND the skin” In addition, manual assessment of the included references was performed by the author of this thesis.

    It can be asserted that the role of touch in manual therapy stems from an individual, psychophysiological response to the interaction between the therapist and the client. Furthermore, activation of the c-fiber system using pleasurable touch in manual therapy provides an opportunity for pain management, somatosensory activation and building rapport in the physiotherapeutic settings.
