Why is Human Touch so Important?

Have you ever wondered why human touch can feel so good? Human touch can be so soothing and increase your longevity.


Why Is Touch Important?

The hormone Oxytocin is released as a result of human touch. Oxytocin helps humans connect to others and promotes feel-good sensations that foster a sense of well-being and happiness. Oxytocin is also released during a massage therapy or Reiki healing session.


3 Positive Health Manifestations from Touch


Inspire positive thinking and expand trust

Known as the “feel good” hormone, oxytocin helps inspire positive thinking and maintaining an optimistic outlook on the world.

Reduce social anxiety and stress

Physical touch increases levels of dopamine and serotonin, two neurotransmitters that help regulate your mood as well as help your body relieve stress and anxiety. Dopamine is also known to regulate the pleasure center in your brain that is a good counter to feelings of anxiety.

Boost immune system and lower blood pressure

Physical touch is known to improve the function of your immune system as well as reduce diseases such as those associated with the heart and blood.

Ways to Get Your Physical Touch Boost

You don’t have to receive human touch exclusively from a significant other. Massage & Reiki also invoke the release of oxytocin and dopamine.
