Touch and holding releases chemicals like oxytocin in the brain that create a sense of well-being and happiness. Touch can also release endorphin, which is the chemical released after a good workout or when you eat chocolate, which contributes to that great feeling.
Hello! I am a Platonic Touch Practitioner, Human Connection Facilitator, and Founder of Tangé Wellness. I work with men and women in need of hugs, someone to talk to or just plain companionship. I call this Human Connection, thanks to Professor and Author Sushma Subramanian who coined my work Human Connection Rehabilitation. I am a very loving and caring person which radiates through my sessions. People describe me as being incredibly genuine as I truly enjoy talking and learning about other people and their life experiences. I am a natural extrovert and feel energized when interacting and connecting with other people, which usually makes people feel at ease.
Double certified through Cuddlist and Cuddle Sanctuary, I have been practicing since 2016 and truly enjoy the closeness created by two respectful individuals. I have training in consent and nurturing, healing touch. My intent is to stay present in your needs and guide you through a blissful platonic touch experience.
One of the first things I ask is for you to consider what you hope to attain through our touch session. It is important to communicate that to me as best you can. For instance, I am strong and physically fit. I have a tendency to use firm pressure when cuddling and using touch therapy on your back, legs or arms. Some people prefer a softer “air-like” touch, which is something you would want to express to me. If you prefer not to talk and would like to doze-off that is ok too. Perhaps this is your first time and you do not know what you want. I will be happy to help guide you.
Session information from Jasmine
Sessions are held at my office in downtown Bethesda, MD with the option of using the x-long daybed, sitting in chairs or making use of the floor. I start your session with a guided body scan meditation to help ground and calm your nervous system.
You will want to give yourself some time to prepare for our session. I ask that you be recently showered and teeth brushed before we meet. You will want to bring comfortable clothes to move in (i.e. gym shorts, sweats, t-shirt, tank top). Boxers or underwear are unacceptable and you must wear a shirt. I can also provide pants or shorts and a t-shirt for you to wear if you prefer.

PLATONIC TOUCH SESSION
$175 / 60 minutes
Come into our office and receive consented touch from a trained practitioner. We will discuss, mirror and educate you around boundaries, consent, vulnerability, feeling into your body and honoring your yes/no. We create a safe, non-judgmental container for you to communicate your needs, share your highs & lows and really experience human connection. You will learn to become more comfortable with and trust touch. You will have the opportunity to enjoy as much or as little touch as you want. You set the pace. And just like touch, you can talk as much or as little as you want.
