    I had an excellent experience with Donna. I got a massage which was really good. Then I went for cuddling and it was really emotional and relaxing at the same time. It took me back to my family feeling who live thousands of miles away. Donna is very friendly, welcoming, attentive and full of love. She knows what she's doing both in massage and the cuddling. Embrace Positive Touch is my place to go to relax and drop life stress and tension. I always leave better than how I came in. So I definitely recommend EPT to everyone I know.

About this pro

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, trained at Northern Virginia Community College. I offer traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage Therapy for relaxation and muscle pain. I offer Sports Massage packages especially for runners. I also offer Nurturing Touch Sessions including Platonic Cuddling Sessions. These are more for emotional well-being and self-empowerment. You can learn more about Nurturing Touch and Cuddle Sessions on my website. This is a very new field in holistic/complimentary medicine, and I am always happy to answer any questions you may have. Of the clients that have come to me for Touch and Cuddle Sessions, I have had a 100% positive feedback record, with clients describing our time as "spiritual" and "well worth" both the time and money. One of my clients was experiencing angina due to stress, and his blood pressure was so improved from cuddling that he was able to (with his physician's okay,) stop taking blood pressure medication. (Results vary, and a physician should always be consulted before discontinuing medication.) People tell me that I am a very talented massage therapist, and it brings me a great deal of satisfaction to be able to use something as simple and natural as touch to relieve pain and melt away stress. As a person who has struggled with depression and anxiety, I have learned firsthand the power of touch to elevate mood and increase one's overall sense of well-being. I have studied the research being done on touch, and I am excited to share what I have learned with others because I think it is so important to understand the important role it plays in our health. Our culture has built many obstacles to receiving nurturing touch, and I am part of a small but growing movement of people who are reclaiming that right for myself and others. My services are tailored to a client's individual needs and can address PTSD from combat or abuse or simply fill a need for human connection. All of my clients have given me consistently positive feedback, describing their experiences as "spiritual" and "fulfilling" in ways that they had not expected or imagined. I love what I do because I love people. (I also run a Meetup Group called Embrace the World. We give FREE HUGS. Because people need them. :-) Even if you just need a hug, I hope you'll reach out. My hugs are always free.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My rate for massage is $100 for one hour, but only $105 for 90 minutes. I do this to encourage clients to give me enough time to create a really luxurious experience. My rates for Touch and Cuddling Sessions begin at $1 per minute, (60 minute minimum,) and increase only if a third party therapist or filing insurance paperwork will be involved. I accept cash and major credit cards. No checks, please.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      If a client wants a Massage, I have the usual health information intake forms, and we discuss what their particular concerns are (areas of pain, medical conditions, surgeries, etc.) I answer their questions before I begin and as I go along. If a client is seeking Cuddling or Touch Sessions, we first meet to discuss what they hope to accomplish through the sessions, and to set our intentions. You can read about the entire intake process for these services on my website on the Intake Process page.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I was trained in Massage Therapy at Northern Virginia Community College in Woodbridge, Virginia. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2014. Before deciding to pursue Massage Therapy, I had been an Elementary school teacher for 16 years. I also studied Nursing at Germanna Community College for a year prior to Massage Therapy school, but found Massage Therapy to be a better fit for me.
    Coverage Area for Embrace Positive Touch, LLC is about 25+ miles of Fredericksburg, VA.
