About Amanda Phoenix Dandelion
My intuitive, nurturing nature is one of my greatest strengths and I am so excited to bring that to cuddling. I am also thrilled to be able to share my capacity for deep empathy, compassion, and listening. The authenticity I offer my clients can help them find the courage, freedom, and security to truly be themselves.
I have dedicated my life to making a difference in the world through healing and art. My artistic life consists of art journaling, ambient performance art, and painting in acrylic and watercolor. Last year, I worked on a project called Healing HeArts thru Arts, which worked to explore and transform so-called “negative” emotions through creative expression and community. It was so rewarding to be able to help facilitate and encourage an open dialogue around the perception of emotions.
We all crave human connection, human touch, and belonging. It is essential to our survival and our ability to thrive in this world. Oxytocin, the chemical released during cuddling, promotes relaxation, trust, and soundness of body and mind. It also helps to relieve stress and increases our capacity to empathize with others. Oxytocin has even been discovered to play a role in protecting the intestine from damage, with the potential for use in treatment of Irritable Bowel Disease. I am so delighted to be able to assist clients in reaping all the wonderful benefits of oxytocin through cuddling.
It is a personal goal of mine to continue living a courageous life, a life connected to my heart and all those hearts around me. Through consensual and platonic touch, I hope to help others realize what enriches their own heart-center. I hope to help others feel a sense of belonging. And I hope to help others have the courage to take brave actions towards the things that make them connect more to themselves and those around them.
Session information from Amanda Phoenix Dandelion
Once you request a session with me, I will send you a waiver of my personal terms of agreement to review. Then we can schedule a phone or skype call to have the opportunity to connect and see if we are a good cuddle match. I am happy to refer you to other wonderful Cuddlists if, for some reason, it doesn’t seem like we will be a good fit for each other. I like to hear what you are hoping to get out of a session with me and give you the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have.
I will be the keeper of time for our session so you don’t have to worry about that. The initial session we will take the first 5-10 minutes to take care of the business of signing waiver, taking a picture of your photo ID, and settling payment. After that, we can begin shaping our session. This we create together. The final five minutes will be for transitioning out of cuddling and moving comfortably into the outside world.
