6. Robin Stine, MS Ed, Certified Professional Cuddler
"Professional Cuddle sessions are a safe space where you can discover your touch needs and practice asking for what you want through healthy, platonic touch. We do this by consensual agreement and boundary setting, which are maintained and communicated verbally throughout our session. Each session flows based upon both our preferences and comfort levels. It’s a judgment-free zone where you can feel connected without any pressure, expectations or need to perform. It’s a place you can just be yourself and enjoy nourishing, healing touch.
How does cuddling look for you? It could be sitting, standing, lying down beside each other, hugging, leaning into, hands on heart, back to back, tracing skin, stroking the face and hair, holding hands, talking, laughing, breathing, or just BE-ing. During our session, we can talk or be silent, explore cuddling styles or remain in one cuddle the whole time–so ask for what you’d like! Together we’ll create how we cuddle together. We can also do things while we cuddle like reading, movie watching, restorative yoga, eye-gazing, meditation, or even just talking. My goal is to aid you in learning to clearly communicate your needs/desired touch while feeling fully connected, supported, and appreciated."
