Hi there! What would you like to get out of your CUDDLING session?
It could be relaxation, relief from stress, support, connection, pleasure, playfulness, letting go of your worries…it all depends on what you want and need.
This session is YOUR time to tune into what you most want and how you want to feel. The magic of cuddling is that you’re doing that in connection with another person, which is something many of us are missing these days.
Touch is a basic human need. Without it we can’t thrive physically, emotionally, or as social beings.
Touch helps regulate the nervous system, which affects pretty much everything, from our moods, digestion, ability to handle stress, our immunity, and of course, our relationships. But even though science has proved the value of healthy touch, cuddling is great because it’s a lot of fun!
I found cuddling during a time in my life when I was in a big transition, dealing with grief, and needing some quality support. Even though I’ve always been a pretty “touchy-feely” person, I was amazed at how nourishing and fun it was to cuddle with a professional.
I’ve had a practice as a body-worker for over ten years. My specialty is Shiatsu (Japanese style massage) and intuitive bodywork. This has helped me develop the comfort and ability to really tune in to the body as well as the whole person.
I also work as a Life and Wellness Coach. Listening deeply is a big part of what I do. I see my clients as already perfect, whole, and resourceful human beings.
For real healing and transformation, I believe you have to work with the body. It’s easy to talk circles around one’s “issues.” The body carries its own special type of wisdom. Cuddling offers a safe and nurturing space to learn how to listen deeply to our own bodies and hear the wisdom they offer.
In my free time, I love to dance (tango, 5-rhythms, Qoya). Spending time with friends is very important to me. I like to geek out on nutrition and personal development. I’ve also studied various sexuality practices, which has been a great way to learn about clear boundaries and communication.
I enjoy being around people who are creative, curious, and who see life as an opportunity to explore with a sense of wonder and possibility. My clients come from varied backgrounds and are of varying ages. The top quality I look for in a prospective client is a willingness to be open to this process.
I’ve often been told that I have a calming presence and people feel they can open up around me. I create a safe space where you can let go, relax, and leave the cuddling session feeling much, much better than when you came in.
It will be my pleasure to share the joy of cuddling with you!
Session information from Patricia
My screening process includes having you answer a few questions over email, and then a short Skype or Facetime conversation. This way we can get a feel for each other and make sure we are both comfortable and feel safe going forward. It’s also a chance for you to ask any questions and let me know of any concerns you might have.
The session is tailored to your needs, in a cozy space with music as an option. We will start by creating some agreements on consensual communication. Once that is in place, we can let personal preferences guide us. Cuddling is a place where you can explore your wants and needs and how to communicate them.
I am sensitive to perfumes/scents. Please do not wear perfumes, colognes or strongly scented laundering products. Thank you for your consideration.
