Benefits of Cuddlings: Health, Happiness, and Love

When a person has some kind of joy, we often hug each other. When someone is crying or just upset we also hug and it really works. What is the use of hugs and cuddlings?

 It is pleasant to us to fall asleep in an embrace, it is pleasant to touch the person whom we love. Where does the need for such feelings come from? Virginia Satir, an American psychologist, said that a person needs at least four hugs a day, eight hugs in order to maintain good health and be in a spirited mood, and twelve or more - to form aspirations.

Tactile contact is very pleasant and useful for the body.

Use of Hugs

Hugs bring a lot of benefits. When we embrace a person, the human system begins to produce a huge number of endorphins - hormones of happiness. Therefore, simple embraces can remove pain. As in childhood, if a child falls, mom just take it in his arms, hug and everything passes. This works with older people: tears and a bad mood can be healed by ordinary human touch.

Embrace increases stress resistance: being in embraces, a person feels protected and magically forces do not give up.

Embrace is also useful because they are able to convey a good mood. If someone has had a joy, you can share it through tactile touch.

They say that if a person is evil, then in childhood he hadn’t enough love. Children who in childhood received enough love, embraces and caresses grow up mentally healthy and not self-contained. It is easy for them to give warmth to other people and receive it. If children grow up without embracing, it, as a rule, leads to the inability to love and show their feelings. It is commonly believed that raising girls, they can be pampered with love, and with boys all the way around. They need to be brought up in austerity so that they grow up to be real men. This is extremely wrong. Boys also need physical contact. No one talks about excessive tenderness (although, it also sometimes happens to be), but about simple manifestations of love for them.

If there is an alarming situation, the first way to overcome it is to embrace, and very firmly. This will remove panic feelings, give strength and confidence.

Hugs in relationships are no less important than with the upbringing of children. Smart people even invented special poses for this hugs and cuddlings. They say that a few minutes of cuddling prolong life - we do not know if it's true, but we know for sure that cuddling positively influences the formation of strong, trusting relationships. This is an excellent medicine for the soul and a very pleasant experience for the body.

If you see that your partner (or even a potential partner) is in an open, relaxed pose - then now is the time to give hugs or cuddlings. And most importantly, cuddling is the cheapest way to recover and gain strength of mind, without using medicines and not visiting doctors.

IMAGINE YOUR CUDDLE SESSION...

 

You enter a room sprinkled with candles and pillows. I ask if you would like a hug. If you say yes, we will share a warm embrace.  I will give you a little time to get settled as I set the timer. This allows both of us to be more fully present. 

 

Once you are settled, you will be able to choose from several possible places to sit or lay. From there we will check in and find a mutually enjoyable way to snuggle/sit/connect. Your comfort is important so we will check in as needed. As we comfortably connect we can share our experiences with touch, joke, or simply relax. I will follow your lead. 

 

10 min before the end of your session, a meditation bell will sound. If you have not yet asked for that back rub you really wanted, this is the perfect time for that. 

 

When your time is complete, I will ask if you would like a hug goodbye and we will part ways. From there, we will likely both be blissed out for the next few days.
