Hugging is Good Medicine and Good for your HEART

by | Feb 25, 2020

Hugging increases levels of the “love hormone” oxytocin, which is beneficial for stress levels, heart health, and more. A 20-second hug reduces the harmful physical effects of stress, including its impact on your blood pressure and heart I

A 10-second hug a day may fight infections, boost your immune system, ease depression and lessen fatigue

The giver of a hug receives just as much benefit as the receiver, but some research suggests the healthiest hugs must come from someone you trust (as opposed to a stranger)

Psychotherapist Virginia Satir also famously said:2

“We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.”

I’m a professional hugger…I learned from the very best, my father. He was a 6’7” teddy bear of a man who perfected the art of hugging and I inherited his gene.

When you book a class with CPR Chicks, hugs are included.
