Hugging is one of the most amazing things that we could ever give another person. Hugging is essentially a form of therapy in itself. When we receive hugs, it gives us a sense of comfort, care, love, understanding, and many other indescribable feelings. Having that said, wouldn’t you agree that giving each other a hug every single day would be a good idea?
There is more to hugging than the surface appearance of it all. There is an actual science that happens within us when we are receiving a hug or giving one to someone else.
The physiological changes we experience deep within as we are being hugged could be described as one of the ultimate forms of being human and alive.

Tiny egg-shaped pressure sensors referred to as Pacnician corpuscles found within the skin are linked to the brain through our Vagus nerve.
Essentially what this means is that they sense the feeling of being touched.
