Touch-Mediated ASMR Available at In Your Arms
As a cuddlist-certified practitioner, Karen Schweiger, owner of In Your Arms, offers the opportunity to safely explore the benefits of alternative touch, the practice of consent and boundaries through the modality of professional cuddling. In addition to her touch therapy, she’s now offering Touch Mediated ASMR sessions. ASMR, or autonomous sensory meridian response, is an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine.
“Individuals who suffer from touch deprivation may not even be fully aware of it. Instead, they may assume that the deep ache, restlessness and/or loneliness they’re feeling may be something else entirely,” states Schweiger. This healing touch is not sexual in nature; it is purely platonic and therapeutic. Healthy touch helps reaffirm feelings of trust, security and warmth.
Karen’s clients enthusiastically affirm the healing benefits of touch therapy sessions. Each visit evokes feelings of comfort and security, with an assurance of confidentiality and privacy.
For new clients, she’s also offering an Introduction to Cuddling package. If you experience ASMR and have considered what it might be like to experience an in-person session, contact Karen at 908-768-1800 or visit CuddleInYourArms.com. See ad on page 45.
