Physical touch can buoy well-being and lessen pain, depression and anxiety, according to a large new analysis of published research released on Monday in the journal Nature Human Behaviour.

Researchers from Germany and the Netherlands systematically reviewed years of research on touch, strokes, hugs and rubs. They also combined data (dữ liệu kết hợp) from 137 studies, which included nearly 13,000 adults, children and infants. Each study compared individuals who had been physically touched in some way over the course of an experiment (thí nghiệm) — or had touched an object like a fuzzy stuffed toy — to similar individuals who had not.

Touching the head appears to have more of a beneficial effect than touching the torso, some studies found. Dr. Michon couldn’t explain that finding, but thought it could have to do with the greater number of nerve endings on the face and scalp.

In 2023, Jeeva Sankar, a pediatrics researcher (nhà nghiên cứu nhi khoa) at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, and a colleague published a rigorous review of skin-to-skin care for newborns. The analysis concluded that touch therapy for preterm (liệu pháp chạm cho trẻ sinh non) or low-birth-weight infants should start as soon as possible and last eight hours or more, a recommendation that the World Health Organization adopted. Dr. Sankar said the new review was important because touch is often neglected in modern medical care (bỏ quên trong chăm sóc y tế hiện đại), but it was too broad. He would have liked it to focus more on how various forms of touch could be integrated in medical care.
