I think so. Did you know that touch is the first of the five senses to develop in the womb? It plays an important role and is used in our everyday life. Through the sense of touch we can detect different textures and temperatures of different levels, thereby making it essential to our very own existence. It also allows us to identify several distinct types of sensations such as pressure, pain, heat and cold. by detecting textures and sensations, this helps to protect us from serious bodily harm.
