There are so many theories about the benefits/drawbacks of touching in therapy. I think you mentioned a little of the drawback in your post. You felt perhaps the touching was a reward for you. Do you feel that was as well or do you think your T just feels that way? Personally, if my T touched me on the arm (I get handshakes)that would thrill me to no end and I would continue to look for it every session. And if I didn't receive one, I would wonder why I was being punished. ANd I know it would become a huge issue with me.

Perhaps your T has realized this and has consciously decided not to touch any of her clients. This could also be a possible explanation.
