Local website launches Valentine’s Heathfield Hug Day

12th February 2018

Magnus Agugu and The Heathfield News

The Heathfield News has teamed up with hug specialist Magnus Agugu and Cuckoo Hair to give out free hugs to people who might be feeling lonely on 14th February.

Magnus is well known for his healing massages and hugs and regularly appears at festivals and other places around the country distributing hugs – but, for this Valentine’s day, he will be in his hometown of Heathfield, East Sussex, brightening everyone’s day.

“A hug with me and your day is different. A power hug of 20 seconds will allow endorphin levels to drop and serotonin to kick in, and it’s very important to stay in the hug for at least this length of time to get the maximum benefit,” explained Magnus.

Magnus will be sharing the love at Cuckoo Hair (formerly Great Hairdressing) in Station Road, Heathfield, opposite Sainsbury’s, on Valentine’s Day, Wednesday 14 February.

All adults are invited to come in at 11am to experience ‘In DA HUG with MAGNUS’ and to find out more about his spiritual healing.

‘In DA HUG with MAGNUS’ was born soon after Magnus started his career in massage, with over 10,000 people having already felt the benefit.

“I believe that for a person to find love and value in life they need to open up the pathways for love and energy to flow. Touch is medicine and sadly social media has killed off a lot of heart to heart contact. I see my mission to reverse this. “said Magnus.

“I am very excited to be welcoming Magnus to the salon, it’s a great idea for Valentine’s Day. I know our customers can’t wait; and we hope the rest of Heathfield will join in too. Everyone will be very welcome,” said Leanne Potts owner of Cuckoo Hair

Magnus is originally from London, from a family with its roots in Nigeria.

From Magnus’s first experience into healing, he had great results and was encouraged to explore this gift through laying on hands and hugging. He also studied and took professional qualifications in massage.
