Don’t Just Feel Good—Do Good & Feel Great

Readers of The Happiness ProjectThe Power of Moments and I Hear You won’t want to miss Hug Therapy.

The science behind hugging. Dr. Stone’s prescription is for a 21-second hug today and every day. One of the many benefits of hugging is that longer hugs have proven physiological benefits. Hugs are good for your immune system, your stress response, your sleep patterns, and so much more.

Hug Therapy brings to life the meaning of hugging. In this book, you will discover:

  • What it means to really, truly give yourself and others the profound gift of a hug
  • How to be powerfully in action and more aware of what matters to you most
  • That you may choose to begin hugging some strangers…with their blessing of course
  • And perhaps most importantly, that together, one literal or metaphorical hug at a time, we make the world a better, healthier, and more connected place.


Embrace life. Hug Therapy shares a full-on, unconditional hug from Dr. Stone Kraushaar. In this book, he invites you to wrap your arms around yourself, your life, and everyone around you in a whole new way. A good embrace—a hug—squeezes every ounce of fear, worry, and negativity out of your spirit, leaving you with nothing but warmth, inner peace, and a feeling of connection.

Give a hug, get a hug. Most people have difficulty remembering the last time someone gave them an all-encompassing hug. Hug Therapy encourages you to change that, one physical or metaphorical embrace at a time. It’s a “do good and feel great” book that will help you live more in the moment and stay tuned into what really matters.

Expert advice from a world-class hugger. Dr. Stone Kraushaar is a clinical psychologist known as The Hug Doctor™. Also the founder of Hug Therapy™, he warmly invites you to jump into the 21-Day Hugging Journey™ and transform your life.
