Animal Therapy // October
This week’s theme on the Animal Therapy Wednesday blog is the most intelligent animals. We share the earth with various animals every day, yet, we don’t know enough about them. That’s why we wanted to highlight the clever side of these fascinating animals. Each animal specializes on certain tasks and functionalities as their brains are adapted in the most exceptional way!
Studies have shown that interacting with animals can increase people's level of the hormone oxytocin. Oxytocin helps us feel happy and trusting. Oxytocin has some powerful effects for us in the body's ability to be in a state of readiness to heal, and also to grow new cells, so it predisposes us to an environment in our own bodies where we can be healthier.
Happy Animal Therapy Wednesday! Here's a dose of animal therapy pictures to break the week with a little peak!
