As it turns out, there’s much more to a cat’s purr than meets the ear.
Studies have shown that the healing vibrations of a cat’s purr can help to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and promote healing. And in fact, these vibrations can also help improve our moods and increase feelings of happiness and contentment.
The Science of a Cat’s Purr:
The healing properties of cats have been known for centuries, and they are only now being adequately understood by science.
A cat’s purr is created by the muscles in a cat’s throat and diaphragm. As the muscles contract and relax, they create ripples of sound that travel through the air at different frequencies. These vibrations have been shown to help heal people. This is because cats emit a frequency that helps to balance the energy in a person’s body.
It is now known that cats emit five unique purrs at different frequency vibrations, and these frequencies are thought to benefit us humans by stimulating the cells in the body. These purrs are also highly beneficial for the mind and soul as it is thought that these vibrations can help to balance the mind and the soul and promote peace and happiness.
Different parts of a cat’s body vibrate at different frequencies, which is why it can heal many things. One study found that patients who spent time with therapy cats before surgery had less pain and anxiety afterward. Some scientific evidence even shows that these vibrations can also help improve circulation!
So next time your kitty starts purring, take a moment to appreciate all their healing vibrations can do for you. After all, it’s just one of the many reasons why we love them so much!
