Five Mental Health Benefits of Physical Touch

  1. Signals safety, trust, and comfort - oxytocin, the feel good chemical, is released and promotes trust among individuals and feelings of comfort

  2. Reduces feelings of anxiety and stress - levels of dopamine and serotonin are both increased, which help you regulate mood and relieve anxious feelings. Your heart rate slows and stress hormones decrease.

  3. Boost immune system and lowers blood pressure - physical touch has been shown to reduce diseases related to the heart and calms cardiovascular stress

  4. Critical to social and emotional growth - affective touch has been shown to activate areas of the brain involved with learning and decision making, as well as with emotional and social behaviors

  5. Inspire’s positive thinking - oxytocin also helps with a good mood and an optimistic outlook on the world!
