coming to find that touch is perhaps the ultimate mind/body medicine as it improves health. Not only does it lower blood pressure and heart rate, but it also serves to increase immune function and ease pain, not to mention having you feeling happier and less anxious. Better yet, it doesn’t seem to matter if you’re being hugged or hugging people. Watch video link in below

Here are some great ways to enjoy the benefits of touch…Even a quick one at the mall or an inept one from your partner will do the trick. Anyone who’s ever gotten a massage knows how it can help you unwind. But it’s not all in your head, being massaged causes muscles to relax, your heartbeat to slow, your blood pressure to fall and levels of stress hormone cortisol to go down as well.
Cortisol suppresses the immune system, but any activity that sets off the relaxation response will also trigger the rebooting of the immune response.
