The Healing Hug

Touch  is healing, whether it be from a significant other, or a friend, or even a pet. Whenever there is touch, skin to skin stroking, hug, our body produces more of the "feel good" endorphin, oxytocin. A small pat on the back a sweet hug from someone you care about or a pat on the knee, can decrease your blood pressure, lower your heart rate, slow your respiration rate, lowers your stress levels  and yet so many people are in such a hurry today, that it is the part of human contact that often gets left out.
