About Emily Laura

Covid19 Protocols: Clients must self-screen and report any new signs of illness before a session. I can run an air purifier during sessions at my home, and you and I will wash or sanitize our hands before and after.

Physical contact with other people is a human need, at every age and stage of life. We were made for this. But many of us are touch-deprived. Or all the touch we get is the needy touch of small children. Or maybe touch hasn’t always been safe for us and we struggle to engage in it at all. Whatever your situation is, the fact that you are here means you are brave enough to seek out something you need.

We all need touch, and particularly touch that is respectful of the comfort of both people involved. In my Cuddlist practice, I offer a safe space for my clients to engage in platonic human contact, in a context of consent and building trust. My goal is that with me you feel respected, encouraged, and comfortable. Also, I want to teach you the skills you need to engage in the kind of contact you want and need in your personal life, while respecting others at all times. I would love the opportunity to share a little time and space with you!

Session information from Emily Laura

What Now?

Once you submit a request, I will respond within 24 hours via email. We’ll schedule a phone conversation to see if the touch therapy I offer is best for you. Assuming we’re ready to move forward, we will set an appointment. When you arrive I’ll have you sign a physical copy of our Code of Conduct, you can get some water, I’ll show you around the space, and if you like, I can play your choice of music in the background. The rest of the session will be largely up to you and your comfort!

Other Information

I host sessions at my (dog-friendly) home, or if needed I can come to your home or a neutral location, for an added travel fee (with possible exceptions for clients with mobility needs). In my home, I conduct sessions on my couch and/or on blankets and pillows on the floor.  Parking is on the street or in the driveway.
