“Relationships are the building blocks to life. Health, happiness and success in life starts with loving families, caring neighbors, and healthy communities.” ~ Peter A. Gorski, MD

“Being touched and caressed, being massaged, is food for the infant; food as necessary as minerals, vitamins, and proteins" ~ Frederick Leboyer
