About Samuel J. Martin III

Getting InTouch with You . Me . We

You: Thank you for your interest in Professional Cuddling! What brings you here? Are you touch deprived? Have specific issues from past experiences you wish to work through? Or are simply curious about Cuddle Therapy & how it is different than just cuddling with anyone? Whatever your interest I look forward to speaking with you during your free pre-session consultation.

Me: I’m long winded; but for the sake of brevity & since your cuddle sessions are all about serving your needs (as well as you’re always in control during each session through Client Initiated Touch), I’ll just say that as a Global Reaching Universal Mind, I in-joy (b)Earth-ing ideas that demonstrate possibilities to move the needle of humanity towards center (harmonious balance). Becoming a Certified Professional Cuddler is in alignment with my values in life that serves my vision of what’s possible for humanity.

We: As human beings we have a deep yearning to connect with other human beings in a meaningful way that often goes unfulfilled. We seek to be seen/heard, to feel that we matter, & to experience making a positive difference simply by being who we are. In today’s world that feels so alien to our human nature it’s become harder to feel at home in our own skin. Healing isn’t a 1-way act, it’s a mutual effort; therefore I see being a Certified Professional Cuddler as an opportunity to heal humanity 2 people at a time.

Experience deep self connection through platonic intimate embrace in a consensual safe space opening you to feel, release, & heal. Give yourself the gift of nurturing touch; book your therapeutic, cuddle session with the most “aweSAM” cuddle thearapist there is now. Thank You in advance!

Session information from Samuel J. Martin III

What To Expect

Before scheduling your Cuddle Therapy Session we will have an initial consultation that lasts up to :15 minutes via video chat, or meet in person at my office, to answer any questions & preview the process for your realistic expectations. After which we will book your session.
When you arrive at the building my professional office space is located in at 200 W. Madison in The Loop (corner of Madison & Wells), your name will be on the visitors list at the security desk in the lobby to allow you up to my office in Suite 2100 (on weekends use the Wells Street intercom on the silver pole in front of the handicap door to ring the security desk). Once in the office suite the receptionist will offer you coffee, tea, or water before notifying me you have arrived (unless it’s a weekend session). I’ll great you in the office lobby & we’ll head back to my cozy cuddle session sanctuary room.
Together we will review the Code Of Conduct previously outlined in out initial consultation, then complete our Session Agreement before I step out of the room for you to change into a fresh set of comfortable clean clothing; i.e. pajamas (a minimum clothing of tank top & shorts to mid-thigh for both practitioner & client at all times), arrive clean & odor free (as freshly showered as you can, teeth brushed, etc.; & avoid strong perfumes, colognes, scented lotions, etc.), & if you smoke – do not smoke after your pre-session shower so your skin & clothes are free from the odor of smoke. Thank You!. Open the door when you’re all changed & I’ll set the room to your preference (lighting & sound/music) then hand you the reigns to guide your session so you receive an optimal experience. This is a digital device free session (a charger is provided while your phone is turned off or on silent).
After your session you will receive an eMail of thanks (your business is most appreciated) & requesting any feedback you’d like to share privately, as well as a review to be shared publicly (both optional). You are also free to contact me via eMail if anything pops up after your session you’d like to share; I’ll do my best to reply promptly if a response is necessary.
