Our Mission: To help people feel better!!
Think of a really great hug you have received in the past. Who was it from. How did it feel?
Do you want more of that? Then come help us spread virtual hugs all around the world!!
For me, cuddling is all about a positive energy exchange. My brother, Aaron, was all about the exchange of positive energy between people. He was a massage therapist for over 20 years. People just raved about his massages. He had a large client base in Evergreen, Colorado that would follow him anywhere, to whatever spa he was working at, or he would come to their homes to do massage. He had this amazing ability to rub his hands together and they would instantly fill with energy and heat up. He had a gift. And his personality was just as warm.
But in August of 2015 he was diagnosed with stage 3 brain cancer and had stopped giving massages. We were all devastated, my family and his clients alike, at the news that he probably wouldn’t live to see his 50th birthday. He rapidly declined over the next 18 months and we lost him in February of 2017. It was standing room only at his funeral as over 300 people came to pay their respects to the man that had poured his positive energy into their bodies and souls.
About a month before he passed I began reflecting on how many people’s lives he had literally touched over the course of his 46 years and I began wondering if I could have that kind of impact in helping people feel better. I wondered what I could do to touch people’s lives in such a positive way. But I wasn’t trained in the art of massage therapy so what could I do to carry on the legacy of my brother and the kind of difference he made in the health and wellbeing of hundreds of people?
I started doing research on touch and healing and how to spread positive energy in the world and I came across some very interesting information. I learned that touch really does have an impact on people’s overall wellness! I also learned there was a whole industry called professional cuddling .
I took the training to become a Certified Cuddler and developed a series of offerings to help educate folks about the power of positive touch. Now, in the age of COVID I had to get creative so we're going virtual!
Let's use our energy to send a virtual hug around the world and help each other feel better!!
Who is NOT missing hugs?
That's because it's one of the ways we communicate, acknowledge and support one another. During this pandemic
I'd venture that most of us have gotten fewer hugs than we used to. And it's affecting us emotionally, but also physiologically.
If you haven't gotten your needs for touch met these past months you're likely missing the
"feel good hormone"
oxytocin. It's what you get from
giving or receiving
positive, platonic touch.
It's part of our mental hygiene because oxytocin
reduces stress and anxiety,
helps us bond with others and has been shown to help with everything from pain, to depression, insomnia, digestion, even cravings
and addictive behavior.
What if we could intentionally pass virtual hugs
all around the world?!?
Peace. Comfort. Warmth.
Let's have more of that.
We have the power to send
to every corner of the globe.
Let's get intentional about it and get our snuggle on!
Whether you are alone,
with a partner, a pet or with everyone sheltering together, you are invited to
snuggle in our huddle.
Come join our live Zoom,
camera optional, from the comfort of your own home to "snuggle up" for an hour or so.
Would you like to
snuggle in your bubble?
Virtual Snuggle Huddles are Zoom-enabled, platonic snuggle events where you join from your own comfy location in your own comfy clothes.
Bring your own fluff (pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, etc.) to "cuddle up" with friends from all over the world.
Optional activities will help us get to know each other and make connections that can be long-lasting and supportive.
Then we'll cuddle up
(alone or together) and be guided through activities that focus on the flow of energy and oxytocin in our bodies.
Come enjoy the bliss.
