| Los Angeles,CA | San Gabriel Valley, CA , Temple City, CA, Pasadena, CA, VIRTUAL
A long time proponent of cuddling, I can see the toll that touch hunger takes on our daily lives *especially* after the isolation of the pandemic. We don’t always get our needs for affection met by our loved ones and that’s ok! There is no shame in receiving professional help. In fact it shows a commitment to a high level of self-care. People have always been drawn to me for hugs and holding ever since I can remember. Indulge in the self-care of a therapeutic touch session with me and feel the stresses of the day melt away in warm embrace.

Covid Protocol: I am fully vaccinated and double boosted. I like my clients to be fully vaccinated per CDC protocols unless we have had a conversation around extenuating circumstances. Both client and practitioner wash hands at the beginning of the session. Masks, hand sanitizer, and temperature taking are available upon request. A rapid covid test can be provided upon request.
I have had zero complaints and many messages of praise for my work here, sometimes Cuddlist is contacted on my behalf and this is from my long standing client of years:
“Mare in an amazing, understanding, and kind person; willing to provide both physical and emotional affection to those who need it. She can provide sympathy to anyone who wants it and serves as a great bridge for people who might feel like they are in need of affection. I highly recommend her services to anyone who wants them and she is a wonderful friend, too!”
Beginner package: $150 for 90 minutes to get to know each other and have a full session. This is recommended if you are not a seasoned cuddlist or you want to get to know each other and how this all works. Get a full session under your belt with the full benefit of prolonged touch.
I also offer virtual sessions at a reduced rate ($80/hour) which I do using Google Meets (more secure than Zoom)
Please indicate in your request form if you are looking for a virtual session. A virtual session includes a video/voice call through Google Meets, a guided body-scan meditation, and a walk-through of how to offer therapeutic non-sexual self-touch to yourself, as well as other platonic activities that facilitate physical connection virtually (e.g. eye gazing, butterfly hugs, the mirror game).
Either virtual or in-person sessions can be turned into:
•Body doubling for productivity sessions
•Remothering/Reparenting nurturing guide
•Trauma processing – while I am not a licensed therapist I have experience in trauma first aid as well as being certified in Shamanic PTSD treatment
We can talk or be quiet, sensitive questions and subjects are welcome and all is confidential.
Session information from Mare
∞ When you request a session with me I will text or email to arrange a video call (or phone call) for a few minutes before setting our appointment (for new clients). This lets us know if we are a good match and to ease us into our new adventure! Payment is requested ahead of the session. I take cash, PayPal, Venmo, or Zelle.
∞ My schedule is generally 10am – 8pm for bookings but I can offer alternative times that will work with your schedule. Depending on our comfort with each other, overnight sessions may be possible for regular clients and virtual and phone sessions are absolutely a yes from me! Oftentimes I get requests for same day appointments; this is not usually practical but I will try to accommodate when I can. I have been told I have a soothing voice and nurturing presence and I hope you find that to be true.
∞ I am able to host in the San Gabriel valley in my beautiful and easily accessed cuddle cave with free parking and separate men’s and women’s restroom, changing area, and ground floor ease. I am sensitive to strong scents so please *do not wear cologne or perfume* ~ thank you!
We will start by going over the Code of Conduct and talking, going slow at first. I am happy to be your guide and no question is off limits or too personal. Then onto the cuddling! We will go at your direction and pace so I suggest at least a 90 minute session for the first time because the time spent cuddling goes very fast. While I do offer outcalls as an option I will need the proper safety and monetary conditions to be met for this service on a case by case basis, my same rate for travel time applies.
No touch is required in a Cuddlist session and we will be guided by you, the client.
∞ I clean and sanitize my space between clients, have a buffer of one hour between clients for safety while my air purifier works constantly. I change linens after every client if they are used and surfaces are disinfected. I will likely be masked, if you can do the same that would be nice but it’s no longer required. PLEASE DO NOT KEEP AN IN-PERSON APPOINTMENT WITH ME IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS OF ILLNESS such as cough, fever, lightheadedness, fatigue, chills, shortness of breath, body aches, sore throat, nausea. I promise to do the same. Please disclose any medical conditions that you think I should know about when we talk, I promise confidentiality.
¡¡ 24 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY ¡¡
Please give me at least 24 hours notice if you have to cancel. If you cancel within less than 24 hours or do not show up I will still charge for the session. Thank you for understanding.
I look forward to connecting with you on this journey. For more information about what I do please visit my website https://pasadenahealingtouch.com/
