Professional Cuddle Therapy
What is professional cuddling?
Professional cuddling is an alternative touch therapy and offers one on one, fully clothed, completely platonic service, where you practice consent, clear communication, respecting boundaries following the Code of conduct. Cuddling session can include talking, eye gazing, hand holding, hugs or various cuddling positions.
If you are not sure what you like, we can try a few different things. I will always respect your boundaries and expect you to respect mine.
We can also practice saying no without feeling guilty. To say “no” means, that you listen to your body and treat yourself with love and respect.
Professional cuddle therapy should not substitute any medical or healthcare professional therapy. If you are in doubt, you should always discuss cuddle therapy with your doctor prior the session.
The goal of professional cuddling is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you will be respected and accepted for exactly who you are. I provide one on one, fully clothed, completely platonic sessions following the Code of conduct and practising consent and clear communication.
What are the benefits of cuddling?
Cuddling releases Oxytocin (hormone that makes you feel good, relaxed and connected to others) and lowers Cortisol level (stress hormone). Here are just a few of the benefits cuddling can offer:
– boosts the immune system
– decreases your pain level
– lowers your blood pressure and heart rate
– reduces stress
– decreases inflammation
– promotes better sleep
– reduces social anxiety
– deepens your relationships
What happens in a session?
In a cuddling session I like to concentrate on you, to give you my full attention. Every session is different and you can decide what would you like to do – talking, eye gazing, holding hands, sharing hugs, playing with hair, giving a back rub, or trying various cuddling positions.
Can we just hold hands and talk? Absolutely. Every session is tailored to meet your requirements. In fact, we could just sit and chat without any form of touch if that is what you prefer on the day. Once you have understood the boundaries the time is yours.
How long does the session last?
Sessions can last from 1 hour to 2 hours
Where are sessions held?
All sessions take place at my therapy clinic in Weymouth, Dorset.
What form of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, bank transfer, PayPal, credit card and debit card online payments
What should I wear for my session?
The best is to wear scent-free comfortable clothing like T-shirts and sweatpants or yoga wear. The minimum of a tank top and shorts to mid-thigh length is required. Undergarments do not constitute as sufficient clothing.
Is this service really platonic?
Absolutely! All sessions are non-romantic, purely platonic and non-sexual. It’s like touching your friend or family member. I carefully select my clients to make sure they are a good fit and I communicate clearly what I do or don’t offer.
What if I become aroused during my session?
Becoming aroused is totally natural healthy human reaction, so please do not worry about it. If it happens, we make adjustments so it doesn’t take focus. I would simply suggest we change position or put a pillow in place between us. As long as we won’t act on it, it will pass.
Is sex ever an option?
Most definitely NO! If anything of that nature is suggested or implied the session will immediately terminate. Cuddle Therapy is NOT a sexual service.
What if I become uncomfortable or want to stop?
You are free to stop the session at any time for any reason.
Do you cater for male and female clients?
Yes. I also cater for those from the LBGTQ+ community.
How do I prepare for the session?
Please arrive in comfortable clothing such as T-shirt and sweatpants or yoga wear. Please be recently showered with teeth brushed and avoid wearing strong perfume or aftershave.
Is this service confidential?
Your privacy is extremely important to me. What is said in any session, your identity and your personal information stays strictly confidential and will not be shared with anyone else, unless required by law or where safety is compromised.
I may cry. Is this ok?
Many emotions can be experienced during a cuddle session and it is certainly not unusual for tears to be released. Let them flow – it is all very healing.
