The Sound of Healing

The healing power of purrs, meows, and chuffs.. it is a real thing AND you might just have an advantage on life if you snuggle up to a purring feline!

Because of the frequency of their purrs (20 to 140 Hz), the vibrations can actually be beneficial to human health! The purring also releases endorphins! Yeah, yeah, Carly.. of course their purrs are therapeutic. Right. But did you know…
Purrs can lower:
1. Stress
2. Blood pressure
3. Risk of heart attack
4. Frequency of shortness of breath

And purrs can help heal:
1. Bones
2. Infections
3. Sore muscles, ligaments, and tendons
4. Pain and swelling

In addition, their purrs may be healing to themselves and other cats around as well.

And as for the meows and chuffs (and hums if you are Cappy Mills), have you ever heard a sweeter sound? One chuff and I forget about all my worries!

 

Next time your kitty wakes you up at 6 am for breakfast on a day you get to sleep in, remember that if he slept nearby that night, he was potentially healing you while you slept. Now that sounds like a fine trade-off to me!
