Easing the Ache of Skin Hunger
As a Cuddlist-Certified practitioner, Karen Schweiger, owner of In Your Arms, LLC, offers the opportunity to safely explore the benefits of alternative touch and cuddle therapy.
“Individuals who suffer from touch deprivation, which is also called skin hunger, may not even be fully aware that touch is what they crave. Instead, they assume that the deep ache, restlessness and/or loneliness they’re feeling may be something else entirely,” states Schweiger. “Skin hunger is typically defined as the overwhelming need for healthy touch. This touch is not sexual in nature; it is purely platonic and therapeutic. This type of touch helps reaffirm feelings of trust, security, and warmth.”
Her clients enthusiastically affirm the healing benefits of Karen’s touch therapy sessions or a “not touching session” if one prefers to talk or sit quietly absorbing the calm, compassionate energy that Karen generates. With each visit, you feel welcome, comfortable and secure knowing the confidentiality and privacy you would expect from any therapeutic practitioner is protected.
For the month of February, she’s offering an Introduction to Cuddling Special for new clients. See page xx for details. In Your Arms welcomes clients of all ages (18+), and serves Hunterdon County and surrounding area.
