Benefícios do toque entre o casal

Queridos Amigos,

Um estudo realizado pelo professora de psicologia, Julianne Holt-Lunstad, baseado numa pesquisa desenvolvida nos EUA, e publicado na revista norte americana Psychosomatic Medicine, revelou que as mulheres que recebem massagens regulares dos seus maridos sentem até o dobro de prazer na cama. Segundo o levantamento, o ideal é que elas recebam 30 minutos de massagem, pelo menos três vezes por semana. Outro benefício constatado pela pesquisadora Julianne Holt-Lunstad foi a queda da hormona do stress e da pressão sanguínea.

"The study of 34 young married couples ages 20 to 39 by researchers at Brigham Young University in Provo and the University of Utah in Salt Lake City found that massage and other supportive and caring touch lower stress hormones and blood pressure, particularly among men, while also enhancing oxytocin, a hormone thought to calm and counter stress. (...) Twenty couples, all married at least six months, participated in a four-week intervention that promoted emotional and physical closeness. They were brought into the lab for training and testing, but the bulk of their actions were at home, including a 30-minute massage (neck, shoulder or forehead) three times a week. Participants wore portable blood pressure monitors for 24 hours to supply a number of readings. They also completed questionnaires about how often they hugged, kissed, held hands or were otherwise affectionate. The 14-couple control group had testing but not the intervention. (...)"

Mulheres... usem e abusem ;)
