Session Rate: $80
I would like to thank you for being here. I am grateful that I have what it takes to be a Cuddlist and that you found me either for the first time or a repeat visit. You may be wondering what a Cuddlist Session is all about.
We come into this world as infants totally dependent on someone to take care of us, nurture us and create a healthy environment for us to thrive in. Ideally we get all of the necessary attention needed for this healthy process but at some point in life, this physical nurturing seems to diminish or disappear altogether. There seems to be a huge gap between infancy and adulthood. We go from cuddles to committed relationships where physical touch is limited to sex, abuse, control, judgement, loneliness, abandonment and fear. We become afraid of each other, we no longer trust, any form of touch is suspect and construed as dangerous or bad. Guilt, trauma and mistakes are made out of our need for healthy connections. (This Experience Varies Greatly Depending On Your Upbringing)
We are a touch-deprived society, skin starved and a lot of times unconsciously aware of it. As human beings, we all desire connection, we all want to be loved and nurtured and accepted just the way we are. Our bodies need physical, nurturing, loving touch all of our lives. There are so many people literally starving for this affection. It doesn’t stop just because you are an adult. It doesn’t matter if your 18 or 80 years old. Physical touch is a necessary part of being healthy.
A Cuddlist session is healthy, physical, platonic touch and connection. It allows you to receive loving connection that fulfills your needs.
Here is what you can expect in a session with me:
* A comfortable cozy space that is private and quiet with lots of cushioning and pillows
* Fresh water and a snack
* A safe space for you to relax, unwind and be yourself in a nurturing, loving, mind body experience
* Compassionate listening with heart-felt attention
* A scent-free space in a smoke-free environment
* Privacy and Confidentiality is strictly adhered to. What happens in our sessions stays between us
Our sessions are co-created by mutual consent. Nothing will take place unless both of us are comfortable with it. Sometimes we all need a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, a place where we can let go of things and just be in the moment. Nothing has to be said, it can just be a quiet time of cuddling. An opportunity to explore in giving and receiving touch.
It doesn’t matter what your gender is, how you view yourself. We all want to be touched in a loving way.
This is not a dating site or a place to develop a personal relationship. This is strictly a professional exchange between us that is meant to help you and fulfill a need or desire you may have. As human beings, when we are meeting our need for touch, we reduce loneliness, depression, stress, anxiety, fear, trauma and all those past beliefs that have not been working for us. We will be in a much more healthier place.
I have 20 years of experience with holistic body work, Reiki, intuitive touch and healing. Addressing emotional and physical traumas in life that we all go through such as divorce, separation, loneliness, abuse, controlling relationships, stress, self-esteem/self-worth, abandonment, depression, rejection and loss just to name a few. You would be amazed at how loving, healing touch can address these issues and bring joy, purpose, worth, a since of belonging, peace and love back into your life. Even if you are in a happy, loving marriage or relationship, many times we are still lacking or missing that touch or connection that we want. It is very common, and it is nothing to be ashamed of or feel bad about. When you become consciously aware of things, then you can take steps to make the changes that you want in your life to improve your well-being and relationships.

Session information from Phil
I conduct my sessions in the healing room on a massage table or on a mattress. I enjoy listening to Pandora or guided meditations to help relax. I light candles to help create a soothing environment. We begin by co-creating a comfortable communication agreement and let our individual preferences guide us from there. In addition to cuddling I encourage my clients to identify and speak their wants and needs. Cuddling can be cozy personal growth work. I have allergies to cigarette smoke and ask that if you are a smoker to please be sure your clothing is clean and free of odors. Good hygiene is greatly appreciated.
