The Biggest Benefit Of A Professional Cuddle Therapy Session
As a cuddle therapist, one of the most profound benefits I have seen from cuddle therapy is its ability to reduce stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety are common issues that many individuals struggle with on a daily basis, and cuddle therapy can provide a powerful and natural way to alleviate these symptoms.
When we cuddle, our bodies release oxytocin, also known as the “cuddle hormone.” Oxytocin is a hormone that is associated with feelings of love, trust, and bonding. It also has a calming effect on the body, which can help to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
Oxytocin works by reducing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the “fight or flight” response. When the sympathetic nervous system is activated, it releases stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, which can make us feel anxious and stressed. Oxytocin, on the other hand, activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes feelings of calm and relaxation.
Cuddling also has a physical component that can also help to reduce stress. When we cuddle, we release endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood elevators. Endorphins can help to alleviate physical pain and discomfort, as well as promote feelings of happiness and contentment.
Cuddling is also a form of physical touch, and touch is known to have a soothing effect on the body. Studies have shown that touch can lower blood pressure, slow down the heart rate, and reduce levels of cortisol, all of which can help to reduce stress and anxiety.
In addition to reducing stress and anxiety, cuddle therapy can also have a positive impact on overall emotional well-being. Cuddling can improve mood, promote feelings of happiness and contentment, and strengthen connections with loved ones. It can also provide a sense of security and comfort, helping to alleviate feelings of loneliness and isolation.
