Cow Cuddling : Healing Therapy
We offer our patrons the benefits of the gentle and healing therapy of Cow Cuddling. Scientific research says that cuddling and hugging a cow helps cure depression in humans by stimulating touch receptors that release oxytocin, the social bonding hormone that reduces stress and anxiety. The therapeutic concept creates a wonderful bond between you and your cow. With their gentle movements, low heart rates and warm bodies, the experience of hugging is a blissful experience.
This meditative concept was introduced in the farmlands of Netherlands. It has been brought to Dakshin Kannada by the initiative of our visionary founder, G. Ramakrishna Achar, a keen animal lover.
Animals, especially cows understands all our feelings and gives us emotional support. According to a survey report from the U.S. department of health and human services pet therapy is the best way to cure depression, stress, anxiety, grief and loss.
