Educational Outreach

Over the past few years, I've spent a ton of time thinking about and providing immersive touch therapy to people for numerous reasons. I've also spent quite a bit of time fielding questions and discussing our services. One of the questions I most frequently get is "why does this service even exist?" As you can imagine, I have a lot things to say about it. 

I would love to come and talk to your group, club, professional organization or gathering about any or all of the following topics:

  • The health benefits of platonic touch and oxytocin
  • How our society suffers by relagating touch solely to romantic relationships
  • The part platonic touch plays in reducing stress and improving overall health
  • The unacknowledged need for ongoing mothering, regardless of your age
  • How immersive touch can facilitate the grieving process
  • Why platonic touch is especially important for elderly, disabled or traumatized individuals
  • The role platonic touch plays in romantic, sexual relationships

Practical applications include:

  • How to get your touch needs met if you don't have a partner or a community to provide it
  • How to ask for what you want and need
  • How to set clear boundaries and negotiate around non-sexual touch
  • The future of non-sexual touch

I have a vision of how much happier and healthier we would be if we accepted touch as a basic human need. I'd love to give you an opportunity to take a glimpse into that world.
