What happens during a cuddle session?

Sessions can include giving and receiving hugs, spooning, snuggling, relaxation, holding hands, hair play, kindness, caresses and conversation. We practice authentic communication, consent and healthy boundaries.

Can Cuddling lead to sex?

Never. Cuddling is strictly non-sexual and nudity is prohibited.

What if I get aroused during a session?

It's OK to feel aroused but never OK to act on arousal or do anything that encourages your own arousal in the cuddle space.

What are the benefits to cuddling?

Cuddle Therapy can help with loneliness, depression, touch starvation, dementia, trauma and more.  Cuddling 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.

Why are there rules to cuddling?

The rules keep us safe and create an environment where we can relax deeply and allow healing.   

Will my boundaries be respected?

Always! I encourage clear open communication during a cuddling session. This is a great opportunity to learn more about setting and practicing appropriate boundaries. Ask for what you want, say yes when you mean yes and no when you mean no.

What if I start to cry during a session?

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. 

Can we talk during a session?

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.  

Should I shower before a session?

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.    

What should I wear for my cuddle session?

Wear comfortable clothes - comfy pyjamas, sweat pants or shorts and a t-shirt.   

Can anyone become a client?

Mostly. People of any age, gender and identification are welcome. However, it’s important that the Cuddler and Cuddlee are comfortable with one another. We'll connect over the phone to chat and make sure we're a fit before our first session.  

Will my privacy be respected?

Your privacy is always respected.
