About Michael S.
**Fully vaccinated and boosted**
Hello! Thank you for being here. My name is Michael and I am a platonic touch therapist, meaning I provide consensual, non-sexual touch for my clients. What that looks like may vary upon your particular needs and comfort level, but usually falls into things like holding hands, hugging, stroking hair or skin, massage, spooning, and most any other way that feels good, safe and healthy to you. That’s what I think is wonderful about this work, I get to help people become better in touch with themselves and the world around them.
I grew up in a big, affectionate family and didn’t realize until I was older just how special and unique that was. In our culture platonic touch is not often considered an acceptable form of affection, leaving many of us deprived of this essential and healthy form of communication. Touching and being touched by another human releases oxitocin, a neurochemical known to relax and put us at ease, making us feel safe and protected. Much of society sees platonic touch as non essential or only acceptable between romantic partners, and that’s far from the truth. I want everyone to know that affectionate, platonic touch can be a healthy and beneficial part of our lives, and that it is possible to connect with other humans while also feeling safe, seen and cared for. That is my hope for you as my client. I look forward to meeting you.
