Being tickled, despite all the laughing involved, feels much more like torture than fun. But according to scientists, there are some proven health benefits we should consider the next time we slap our partner for trying to be cute.
Did you know there's a published history of tickling? From fishermen using it to tickle a trout for the purpose of putting it into a deep trance, to the practice of tickle torture itself, it's been used by people from all over the world, including the Han Chinese and the Nazis. And while tickling clearly has a dark side, the benefits will provide you with a more positive aspect of it. Her are five proven health benefits to take note of:
A 2014 study from the University of Leeds found that tickling can help to reduce stress on your heart when it involved the tragus, which is the minuscule triangular flap at the opening of the ear.
By tickling the tragus, electrical stimulation shoots to the vagus nerve, which can help the heart to work better, reacting more efficiently to changes happening. It might even help to calm people down.
Are you afraid or a fan of being tickled?
