Hugging is indeed a well-known therapy that has a powerful way of healing. Research that has been carried out shows that hugging as well as laughter is extremely effective at healing sicknesses, loneliness, anxiety and of course, stress. Research also shows that a nice, proper good, deep hug where two people come together, can help benefit in these ten ways Factboyz has compiled.


1. The soothing touch of a good hug helps build trust and increase the sense of safety. This also helps with increasing bonding through open and honest communication.

2. Hugs actually boosts oxytocin levels instantly which help in healing feelings if loneliness, isolation and anger

3. Seretonin levels are increased especially when hugs last for an extended time increasing and elevating moods and in the creation of happiness
4. Hugs strengthen the immune system. The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge creates activates the SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA. This actually stimulates the thymus gland responsible for body regulation and balance of the body’s production of white blood cells which keeps you healthy and disease free.

5. Hugging boosts self-esteem. We all have the need to feel special and loved and when someone appreciates your self-worth through hugging, it increases the ability to self love. This is evident when parents show love to their little baby son or daughter and the child in return feels loved and self-esteem is successfully boosted.

6. Hugging and Hugs relaxes the muscles. They release tension in the body. They soothe aches by increasing the circulation into the soft tissues.

7. The energy exchange between the people hugging is an investment in the relationship. It encourages empathy and understanding. Virginia Satir, a respected family therapist, said “We need eight hugs per day for maintainance. We need twelve hugs a day for growth; I find love as a miracle drug”

8. Hugs teach us how to give and receive. There is equal value in receiving and being receptive to warmth, as to giving and sharing. Huge educate us how love flows both ways.

9. Hugs are very much like meditation and laughter. They teach us how to let go and be present in the moment. They encourage us to flow with the energy of life.

10. Hugs balance out the nervous system. The galvanic skin response of someone receiving and giving a hug shows a change in skin conductance. The effect in moisture and electricity in the skin suggests a more balanced state in the nervous system parasympathetic.

With love, Factboyz
