Date: 26th Apr 2024

Receiving touch is of critical importance, as many studies have shown that touch promotes mental and physical well-being. But what is the current status quo of research? Which moderators contribute to positive effects of touch on mental and physical health? Helena Hartmann, together with collaborators from Amsterdam and Bochum, published a systematic review and multivariate meta-analysis of the physical and mental health benefits of touch interventions. Read the study published in Nature Human Behaviour here.
