Research has shown that the power of touch and the animal-human bond has been proven over and over again to provide a therapeutic effect for both humans and animals. Numerous studies have found supportive evidence for positive mental and physical health benefits from being near animals and touching them. This interaction causes positive endorphins to be released throughout the human body. Hudson uses his healing ability to assist our families and loved ones during some of life’s hardest moments.
