About Grace S.
I have been immersed in the healing arts for the past 30 years, as an intuitive holistic massage therapist, ecstatic dancer, Kripalu Yoga teacher, multilingual preschool teacher and all around highly sensitive person. I am also a mother, friend and sister to many. I am excited to be able to offer unconditional love and nurturing platonic feminine energy in the context of professional cuddling. Many of us did not receive healthy, abundant, loving, platonic touch as children and this can make it very challenging to navigate through the world of relationships, learning how to meet our very normal human need for touch and intimate connection with others. My background in therapeutic massage therapy, reiki, trauma integration, embodied movement and yoga over the past 30 years has taught me the importance of this very basic level of connection. We are natural creatures and cannot thrive, grow and heal without warmth, understanding and physical affection.
My desire in offering this work is to provide you with a profoundly safe and compassionate space in which to explore your own needs, wants and boundaries within platonic consensual touch. Together, in a session we can cuddle, talk, cry, laugh, explore authentic movement and communication, both verbal and non~verbal. I can help you learn to express yourself more clearly, directly, and effectively when seeking to connect with another. If needed, we will work on developing your awareness and attunement to understanding subtle body cues and navigating the frequently confusing realm of interpersonal relating.
I am an excellent, compassionate listener, friend and ally and I welcome you to share your thoughts, feelings, wants and fears. Sometimes the best medicine is just being held by a peaceful, friendly fellow human creature who can encourage and hold your hand in a space of light, optimism and connection. I have lived, loved and traveled in the Middle East, Latin America, Europe, Africa and India, and I am very familiar and comfortable with the nuances of these vast and diverse cultural ways and rhythms. I especially enjoy and am skilled at supporting those seeking to adapt and improve their social and cultural emotional and somatic intelligence in this Western context.
I look forward to sharing space with you soon!
Session information from Grace S.
If you feel a welcoming resonance here, I invite you to submit a request for a session. I will respond promptly by scheduling a short phone call during daytime business hours. This is an opportunity for us to get briefly acquainted, confirm the Code of Conduct, discuss logistics, answer questions and assure that we are a good fit for each other. If after our phone call we both feel a mutual yes, we’ll move forward and schedule our first cuddle session. I am available to work with all clients between the hours of 10 am and 8 pm, and all new clients must be willing to go through the screening process described above before scheduling with me. For this reason, I do not accept same-day requests from new clients.
At this time, sessions are available in my very comfortable, cozy and private home work space in Escondido. Be assured that you will feel welcomed and comforted in a space of warm, soothing earth tones, velvety blankets and pillows, nestled on a cushy mattress on the spacious carpeted floor. There is soft lighting and soothing music, and all of my linens and textiles are washed regularly and frequently so you can feel assured the cuddle space is clean and fresh for you. At the beginning of your session we will sit down and check in, becoming acquainted and discussing your goals for our work together.
Cash payment at the beginning of the session is required.
