According to research… we can confirm that hugs have therapeutic effects.
The longing for human touch and connection is as basic as any human need, and there’s strong evidence that hugs don’t just make you feel good. Researchers have found that giving your loved ones an affectionate squeeze can actually be good for your health.
“The health benefits of giving and receiving hugs are quite impressive. Hugs have a therapeutic effect on people,” says psychologist Joe Rock, PsyD. He says hugs are a good way to show someone you care about them. What’s more, they’re good for your health.
“Research shows that hugs can be healthy,” says Dr. Rock. “Hugs cause a decrease in the release of cortisol, a stress hormone, and other research indicates that hugs decrease your blood pressure and heart rate in stressful situations,” he adds.
Additional research found that giving and receiving hugs can actually strengthen your immune system.
Dr. Rock says hugging seems to have a therapeutic effect. That’s because your brain has specific pathways created to detect human touch.
“We can detach ourselves from people and get locked up in our own world,” he says. “Just the physical act of hugging someone really does connect us with them and lets down some of our defenses.”
Hugging communicates that you are safe, loved and that you are not alone — a much-needed message right about now.
