About Anna Joy
I LOVE cuddling. I LOVE bodies, and hearing the soft happy sighs of a fellow human who’s been transported to the mesmerizing “cuddle zone,” the magical place where touch-based oxytocin hormones bring us healing and contentment. I experience the benefits first hand, in myself, my friends, and my clients.
Cuddling, to me, is an offering of deeply nourishing, connective touch and holding, facilitated either to meet your wants in the particular moment, or help you find what they are. In my IDEAL world, cuddling happens regularly so that over time, it becomes very connective and VERY silly and free and energizing and soothing.
I opened my “cuddle ambassador” practice in early 2015. My mission is to share intimacy until it’s a resource everyone can access. Along with my stamp of approval from Cuddlist, I certified as a professional cuddler in Fall of 2015 through Cuddle Up To Me in Portland. Reiki practitioner since 2014; I practice embodiment and breath-work in the vein of David Cates, similar somatic modalities for deactivating the nervous system and meeting the present moment, and upon request I offer visioning sessions supporting people in getting what they truly want in their lives.
From my longest client: “Anna, you have unique cuddles, caresses, touches, and squishes. I love everything you do! Even when I’m a little fatigued, you completely hold my attention and treat me like I am royalty. I am moved by the fact that you also love our cuddles. You make me feel so special. I experience so much joy when we talk and touch…you are so much more to me than just a cuddle partner…you are an intelligent friend…you are a comrade in the cosmic quest.”
Session information from Anna Joy
I’ll respond as soon as I’m able (hopefully within 48 hours, but not able to guarantee) to your notification with a brief screening call (unless you request email contact first).
Most sessions take place at my lovely studio in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle (98103). When you arrive, we handle payment, sign the agreement, copy ID, turn phones/technology OFF, and get comfortable communicating about expectations, feelings, consent. We can pick music and get cozy by taking a few breaths together and just cuddle. Or chat, read, watch funny youtube videos, play chess and cuddle…whatever!
Consider setting up several regular sessions at a time for deeper benefits. Outcalls may be requested after an initial session.
Cuddling is strictly platonic! Clothing stays on at all times, and the mood is affectionate and nurturing rather than sexual or romantic, and I’ll quickly re-align the session if it veers in that direction out of the playful, sweet realm. I want you to walk out feeling blissful and content. I welcome and feel deeply at ease with all types of people, including various genders, belief systems, and nationalities. Everybody needs snuggles’n’laughs!
