ANI

Certified Cuddle Therapist

Location:

I am based in London and provide sessions in cosy and meditative nap pods operated by our partner Pop&Rest in Shoreditch. Home visits are also available across London.

About:

I experienced the wonders and calming effects of cuddling in my previous profession as a nanny when giving hugs to children in my care, especially when they felt upset for whatever reason.

 

I became a professional cuddler because I saw the need so many people have for close human contact, someone to listen to them without judgment, and make them realize that they matter.

 

Everyone deserves affection, touch and acceptance, and for me there are no exceptions for that. I offer a safe space for you to be you, in your most authentic and comfortable way. Join me and dive into an experience, which will leave you feeling deeply relaxed and more at peace than you’ve ever been.

Sessions are available during the day, evening and on weekends. Please, note that booking in advance will help ensure your preferred appointment time.

VANESSA

Trained Cuddle Therapist

Location:

I provide in-calls in SE1 (Tower Bridge & Bermondsey), and out-calls across London.

About:

I’m a licensed massage therapist and I feel that it’s my mission to help people relieve their physical and emotional stress through massage and integrated bodywork. I am a firm believer that your thoughts create your reality.  Therefore, the more massage and bodywork you receive, the more peaceful your thoughts will be and as a result, the more peaceful your life will be. I believe that the entire industry has something to offer to the lives of the stressed and overworked. I uphold and conform to the highest standards of ethics, professionalism, and care. The art of healing is a great passion of mine and I also look forward to delivering cuddle therapy sessions, which is the start of an amazing new experience for me.

"My session was an absolute delight. I was a little anxious as this sort of thing was very much out of my comfort zone, but Vanessa made me feel at ease straight away. Vanessa was so comforting, I felt like we had been friends for years. There was no need for a mask, I could truly be myself with Vanessa. 5 stars is an understatement. I definitely will be booking with Vanessa again sometime in the near future. Thank you Nordic Cuddle and thank you Vanessa." - Joshua

MARTA

Trained Cuddle Therapist

Location:

I'm based in North London, and practice from a studio in Islington.

About:

I have always been interested in the way we communicate, so I studied languages and continue learning to this day.

I also practice and teach yoga, I meditate and try to live the most conscious life I can. I believe everyone deserves an abundance of nurturing touch and connection in life.  A cuddle session with me provides an opportunity to fulfil that need in a safe and warm environment free of judgment.

Trained Cuddle Therapist

Location:

Temporarily only available for online appointments.

 

About:

I work in education and also run my own ethical fashion label. I come from working in events and still do so occasionally. I like to keep myself busy, so being a cuddle therapist is the perfect counter balance for my busy lifestyle. I enjoy sharing the gift of touch with my clients, as it was quite the revelation when I discovered how relaxing it actually is! It's a beautiful opportunity to unwind, forget about all the worries in the world, and connect with another human being in a professional, but also personal way.

"With her warm, friendly demeanour and soothing voice, Miriam excels at putting me at ease. Our cuddle sessions feel perfectly natural and are a sensual experience that leaves me feeling rejuvenated. I really look forward to my cuddle therapy sessions with Miriam." - Peter, Artist

“I had a cuddle session with Johnny yesterday. My overriding feeling was how relaxed and comfortable I felt in his presence. He has a very kind energy and I instantly knew he was the right practitioner for my needs. Johnny listened to what I was hoping to get from our session and that was achieved. Our energies certainly clicked and I haven’t felt quite so zen’d out probably ever. I slept so well that night. I look forward to booking another session and couldn’t recommend Johnny highly enough. Namaste.” - Mark, 40.

KRISTIINA

Certified Cuddle Therapist

Location:

Brighter Spaces in Islington and Pop&Rest in Old Street. 

About:

Ever since I could remember I have always been very passionate and curious about people and their stories, psychology, mental health and discovering different practical tools in life that would help us all to live in harmony. I have often found that the simplest things, our core needs, such as caring touch from another human being, undivided attention, a listening ear, empathy, compassion and essentially, supporting each other in our life journeys can ease the progress towards holistic wellbeing. Cuddle therapy is really beautiful experience that can help to re-connect with oneself and others or just maintain a happy balanced lifestyle. 

 

“I recently had a session with Kristiina. She was amazing! She is very warm soul! It was my first Cuddle Therapy session, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to except but she put me totally at ease. Since the appointment, I have felt more relaxed, I have been sleeping better and I have given myself more self-care. Thank you so much Kristiina!” - Lyn
