So, holding hands can help reduce pain according to this article;
One of the findings was; “Couples holding hands during the noxious stimulus (pain plus partner touch) displayed higher empathic accuracy (P =.003) and lower pain levels (P =.021) compared with couples not holding hands (pain/no partner touch). These results indicate that touch may improve empathy and is associated with an analgesic effect.”
