About Lori Lynne

Do you ever feel disconnected? Like you don’t even know what you want anymore? After traveling for several years and experiencing the difficulties of culture shock and war, I didn’t really know what it meant to be comfortable. Heck, sometimes being comfortable made me even more uncomfortable. I had bounced from one culture to another and the rules were so different. I didn’t know how to act or what to think. Am I standing too close? Not close enough? Am I speaking the right language? I was a mess. I couldn’t sleep. Then slept too much. To get better, I had to trust myself and that required having a safe, supportive place to feel like I was ok. Or… if I wasn’t ok, that I knew I could be ok. Cuddling helped me immensely. Sometimes, you can’t say anything to help someone else on their journey. But sometimes you don’t have to. Sometimes a hug or a hand to hold says a lot more. I want you to have that supportive environment too and if I can help provide it, I joyfully will.

I’m Lori, a professional cuddler, teacher, and seeker of deep meaningful connection. I believe in the importance of touch for mental and physical well-being. Oxytocin is so powerful! The benefits are endless. I work to create connections that leave people feeling more confident, comfortable in their own skin, and with their ability to set boundaries. The world is full of situations where people tell us what we should think and do. It can be so easy to forget to ask what is it that we genuinely want. In our time together, I want you to know you are accepted just as you are. You are amazing and deserving and your voice will be honored. Really. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, I’d be happy to share this experience with you.

Session information from Lori Lynne

When inquiring, or to submit a request for a booking, please respond with:
-a few times that are convenient for you.
-a confirmation that you understand and will respect the platonic nature of our relationship
-the zip code where you are located.
If traveling more than 30 minutes each direction, I do charge a travel fee.
Please let me know if you need any accommodations to be able to have a satisfying session.

When I respond, I will let you know which time works best for me. At that point, I like to have a quick video or phone chat (about 10-15 minutes in length) to answer any remaining questions.

I accept payments in cash, or by Venmo, Paypal, or credit card. I charge a 3% processing fee if I handle the credit card transaction myself. However, you can use credit cards through Venmo. Payment is due at the beginning of the session. If the session is more than 2 hours long, I do require a deposit be made in advance to block off that time for you.

I request that all cancellations be made at least 24 hours in advance. If cancellations are made less than 24 hours in advance I do assess a $40 cancellation fee (per hour scheduled). If less than 12 hours in advance, I charge for the entire session. Thanks for respecting our professional relationship.

I believe in the power of touch and also the power of community. In the spirit of giving back to the community, I do offer a sliding scale for those dealing with issues related to trauma, domestic violence, PTSD, and those committed to their own recovery from drugs and alcohol. This is on a case by case basis and will require additional information and homework. I hold to the idea that no one should be more committed to my personal growth and recovery than I am. No one can do the work for me. I ask that those who seek this option also be incredibly committed to their own healing. If this is of interest to you, please send me a message and we can discuss it in more depth. I believe in you.

For people who have never participated in a cuddle session, it can feel a little bit awkward at first. I embrace the awkward. I want to empower you to cuddle the way you want to. What feels comfortable for you? As long as we work within the framework of boundaries and consent, there is no wrong way to cuddle. This is a great time to experiment and discover more about yourself. I encourage you to use your imagination and listen to what your intuition is trying to tell you.

After our session, I’ll follow up to see how you are feeling and get feedback about how you feel the session went. How did it help you work toward the goals you set? And if you’d like, to set up a time when we can connect again.
