Did you know that hugging has surprising impacts on our health and well-being?

Discover with us some curiosities and benefits of this very special gesture:

The hug releases oxytocin, the “love hormone”, which reduces stress, strengthens emotional ties and increases the feeling of well-being.

Scientific studies have shown that hugging can lower blood pressure, improve the immune system and reduce the sensation of pain.

When we hug someone, our brain releases endorphins, which makes both the hugger and the hugged feel happier.

On average, a sincere hug lasts about 3 seconds, but that brief moment can have a lasting impact on our mood.

At Total Harmony Medicine we urge you to give hugs with intention and let’s celebrate the healing power of this simple but significant gesture.

Tag that special person you would like to hug.

Happy international hug day!
