Holding Hands

April 6, 2017

There’s something very special about holding hands, it can affect how we feel physically and emotionally, holding hands in a relationship is commonly associated with feeling good, holding hands to another offers comfort, reassurance, and love, and is also good for your heart in other ways as its known to calm down anxiety and reduce blood pressure. Holding hands is one of the most powerful forms of touch because we have more nerve endings in our hands than any other part of the body.

Touch is the first of our senses to develop and is vital to our development. From a young age we crave the power of touch. When you touch a newborn babies hand it instinctively grabs your back. Our first response as adults is still to grab another hand when in pain, watching horror movies, in times of distress and happiness. When you hold another hands you are stimulating pressure points which relax that person and make them feel cared for.
