Sessions can include giving and receiving hugs, spooning, snuggling, relaxation, holding hands, hair play, kindness, caresses and conversation. We'll practice authentic communication, consent and healthy boundaries.
Never. Cuddling is strictly non-sexual and nudity is prohibited.
No. This is not a romantic experience and it will never, ever lead to anything romantic. If you're seeking romance please look elsewhere.
Yes! You will experience a safe place where you can relax and experience acceptance, nurturing, care and kindness.
It's OK to feel aroused, this is natural, but it's never OK to act on arousal or do anything that encourages your own arousal.
Conscious Cuddling can help with a multitude of needs and issues including loneliness, depression, the need to be seen & heard, touch starvation, the need to connect, heart disease, dementia, trauma and more. Healing is the natural result of Conscious Cuddling. Cuddling also increases Oxytocin, otherwise known as the “bonding hormone.” This chemical reaction has been known to reduce stress, anxiety and lower blood pressure leading to a decreased risk of heart disease.
Absolutely! We all have that vulnerable part inside of us that is calling out for love, gentleness, kindness and acceptance. There is something incredibly healing about being held without expectations, without agenda and without the need to give anything back in return. Just complete acceptance of you, exactly where you're at in this moment. Many people didn't receive the love they needed in their family of origin and Cuddle Therapy can help back-fill that deficit.
The rules are there to keep us safe and create an environment where we can relax deeply and allow for healing.
Always! I encourage clear open communication during a cuddling session. Say yes when you mean yes and no when you mean no. We will both set and practice clear, clean and appropriate boundaries.
Emotions are welcome. Human touch is healing and can bring up feelings. Tears, sobbing, laughter and joy are all welcome. Don’t fight it, feel it. When you allow yourself to feel feelings, they eventually pass. I’m here to hold that space for you. This is an opportunity for you to experience healing, nurturing and comfort. It's safe to express your vulnerability here.
Yes, you’re free to talk during a session or enjoy your session in silence. Sometimes being quiet is really helpful in getting down into a deeply relaxed state.
Yes. Cuddling is intimate and close. You should shower and brush your teeth within 12 hours of your session and refrain from wearing any strong scents.
Wear comfortable clothes - comfy pyjamas, sweat pants or shorts and a t-shirt.
Mostly. People of any age, gender and identification are welcome. However, it’s important that we're comfortable with one another. We'll connect over Zoom to chat, answer any questions and make sure we're a fit before our first session.
Your privacy is always respected.
