Client understands that cuddle therapy is not a cure, nor is it able to alleviate serious mental health issues. It is not a substitute for medical or psychiatric treatment and is not recommended for people with serious psychiatric disorders.

Client confirms their understanding that cuddle practitioners are touch therapists and therefore aren’t expected to hold psychiatric or mental health training, which may be of greater benefit to some people.
