Love makes you feel better

10 February, 2022

Valentine’s day is more than just an excuse to exchange greetings. SCIENITIFIC EVIDENCE demonstrates that acts of love, kindness and support turn on a flow of chemicals in your brain that makes you feel good.

Dr Pat Mumby from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine says, “Falling in love causes our body to release a flood of feel-good chemicals that trigger specific physical reactions.”
Substances like dopamine (which make you feel euphoric) and adrenaline (which makes your heart go pitter patter and your cheeks flush) are produced in great quantities and dumped into the blood stream when you feel loving feelings. Love “lights you up” the pleasure centres of the brain, which can be visualised with brain scans.

This helps us to understand why loving actions make up feel good. It’s a physical response – our bodies are designed to register such positive sensations when we do something kind, compassionate or supportive.

Look for ways to demonstrate your love, either self-love or someone special to you – everyone involved will feel better because of it.

Therefore, Valentine’s Day is a great reminder to feel the love.
The Chiropractors of Solihull and Sutton Coldfield are making an extra effort to share the love on Valentine’s Day; we all love to feel the Love. We love to be aligned with the love vibration as they say good Vibes Only.
