“Ronrontherapy” or how to relax thanks to cats
One of the benefits of having a cat, in particular, is thought to be “ronrontherapy”, a therapy that makes you smile but turns out to be more than serious. Indeed, according to the Toulouse veterinarian, Jean-Yves Gauchet, the purring of cats, that is to say the low frequencies in hertz that a cat emits, allow to calm the animal as well as the human being. To arrive at this conclusion, he carried out a study on 250 people asking them to listen to a purring CD, which lasts about thirty minutes, every day. The results showed that the subjects of the study felt well-being, serenity as well as greater ease of falling asleep. Moreover, these low frequencies emitted by the cat, from 25 to 50 hertz, are the same as those used by health professionals, including physiotherapists, to repair cracked bones, injured muscles and accelerate healing. In addition, music composers use these same frequencies to arouse emotions.
Hearing purring, and therefore these low frequencies, promotes the production of serotonin, the happiness hormone. As a result, we are in a better mood, relaxed and more able to enjoy quality sleep. In addition, it is a way to protect against certain ailments that affect us when we are sleep deprived.
In addition, caresses are just as beneficial, both for humans and for cats. For one, it helps to fill an emotional gap and for the other, it reassures him. This is why it is now possible to become a professional cat petting!
