Help us Make a Difference!

Trusted Touch® provides compassionate, consensual, therapeutic touch to those who are lonely, touch-deprived, disabled, elderly, medically fragile or at the end of life.  Trusted Touch® is a profound experience and a tremendous gift - to both the client and practitioner.

Whether you are an experienced therapist, a student, an interested health professional, a prospective client or are completely new to Trusted Touch®, we warmly welcome you. Our mission is to promote Trusted Touch® as a valuable holistic therapy modality, to clarify what it is  - and, as importantly, what it isn't - and to educate by demonstrating that touch is vital to our health and well-being in an increasingly disconnected and medically-ailing society.


Trusted Touch® has its roots in what, in the USA, is popularly called Cuddle Therapy.  Refined and developed as Trusted Touch®, it involves the provision of platonic touch to adults, and is informed by consent and boundaries. By acknowledging and observing these in a consistent and positive way we create a safe space for our client in which touch, tenderness and vulnerability can be safely manifested.

Humans are social creatures, which means we love hanging out with each other and being touched. In fact, simple human touch - like hand holding, hugging, and cuddling - releases a cocktail of hormones in our brains including dopamine, serotonin, and the aforementioned oxytocin, all of which make us feel good. Oxytocin has also been shown to decrease depression.
