Cuddle Therapy

Cuddle therapy is a form of therapeutic touch where trained practitioners offer platonic, nurturing touch in a safe and non-judgmental environment. It focuses on human connection, physical comfort, and emotional support through activities such as holding hands, hugging, and other forms of non-sexual touch.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Cuddle Therapy

What are the benefits of Cuddle Therapy?

Cuddle therapy can provide numerous benefits, including:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety

  • Improved mood and emotional well-being

  • Enhanced sense of connection and belonging

  • Increased levels of oxytocin (the "cuddle hormone")

  • Better sleep quality

  • Relief from physical pain and tension

How does a Cuddle Therapy session work?

During a cuddle therapy session, you and I will engage in various forms of non-sexual touch, based on your comfort level and preferences. Sessions typically include a consultation to discuss boundaries and goals, followed by activities such as cuddling, holding hands, or gentle massage. Every session is customized to your needs and comfort.

Is Cuddle Therapy safe?

Yes, cuddle therapy is designed to be a safe and respectful experience. I am trained to ensure that all interactions are consensual, platonic, and within agreed-upon boundaries. Safety protocols include:

  • Clear communication about boundaries and consent

  • Respect for personal space and comfort levels

  • A focus on creating a safe, non-judgmental environment

Who can benefit from Cuddle Therapy?

Cuddle therapy is beneficial for people of all ages and backgrounds who are seeking physical and emotional comfort. It is especially helpful for those experiencing:

  • Loneliness or social isolation

  • Stress or anxiety

  • Difficulty with physical touch or intimacy

  • Grief or emotional pain

  • Chronic pain or physical discomfort

What should I wear to a Cuddle Therapy session?

Comfortable, loose-fitting clothing is recommended for a cuddle therapy session. Think of attire similar to what you might wear for yoga or lounging at home. It’s important to feel relaxed and at ease during the session. Many people prefer to wear tank tops and shorts in order to maximize skin to skin contact.

Is there any talking during a Cuddle Therapy session?

Communication is an important part of cuddle therapy. While some clients prefer a quiet, peaceful session, others may find comfort in conversation. I encourage you to voice your preferences to ensure the session meets your needs for both physical and emotional support.

What if I feel uncomfortable during the session?

Your comfort and safety are the top priorities. If you feel uncomfortable at any point, it’s important to communicate this. You can take breaks, adjust positions, or end the session at any time. Open communication ensures that the experience remains positive and supportive for you.
