stress-relieving tool for people of all ages, it’s a vital element of
our physical and emotional health. Studies show
that people who don’t get enough touch tend to be less happy, lonelier,
have less social support and lower relationship satisfaction, as well
as suffer from a host of other problems, including anxiety, mood
disorders, and depression.
People who don’t get enough touch (and

“feel-good” hormone released in your body when you touch or are touched.
Oxytocin lowers levels of cortisol, reduces stress and pain, and makes
people feel secure and trusting toward one another.

metabolism, control appetite, and manage weight issues.
