Why does a hug feel so good?

When you hug someone, oxytocin is released throughout the body, causing a decrease in heart rate and a drop in the stress hormones cortisol and norepinephrine.

According to Mercola.com:  “A 20-second hug, along with 10 minutes of hand-holding, also reduces the harmful physical effects of stress, including its impact on your blood pressure and heart rate”

Oxytocin is known to increase levels of feeling-good hormones such as serotonin and dopamine, which may be why it has calming effects.
