Some doctors and organizations have been promoting the day of the hug in the streets, among strangers, as a collective therapy very easy to take and share.
The scientific basis for the therapeutic power of the embrace is expressed naturally in the gesture of a mother when she takes her son and as in childbirth or when she suckles, her brain secretes oxytocin, known as the hormone of "attachment." The baby feels attached to it and safe from all danger, which gives him confidence and security.
The hug also activates in the brain the release of serotonin and dopamine, thanks to which we experience a pleasant feeling of well-being, harmony and fullness. Caresses and touch contribute not only to make us feel good, they also promote the good development of intelligence in children, they help overcome fears and prevent premature aging.
