It takes approx. 6-8 seconds to transfer energy between two people while hugging. I love an amazing hug, one that you could safely crawl into, nestle and hibernate in. There isn't anything like it, in the world for me...this simply, powerful and loving exchange between two people.
As much as I'm enthralled with an awesome hug...I must say that I was slightly taken aback when I learned about what is widely known as "Cuddling Services". These intimate (yet, non-intimate...wait, I'm confused) services are popping up, all over this great but apparently frigid country. Places like, "The Snuggery" (www.thesnuggery.org) and other "cuddle services" appear to be flourishing as there is a great need and market for "touch".
I, whole-heartedly believe in touch, beings in all that I'm a licensed Massage Therapist...I OVERstand the healing properties of touch and transference of energy (positive)...it just leaves the question rattling around in my mind, just how many Americans aren't being "touched" in a positive way? It also makes me ponder on just how disconnected have we really become, that such a service is demanded?
By, no means am I belittling these services, I'm really just shocked that we've become so desensitized with one another, that we find it more comfortable and appealing to contact a "service provider" for hugs and/or cuddles versus contacting someone we know personally, and requesting "free love". Just something to think about.

*Swish, scratch, swish*...went the brushes and palm swipes of seven-subtly, eager artists against their roughly-textured and prepped canvases. Resonating incredibly soothing feels, like a medium-bristled brush being lovingly and carefully raked through her hair. It gave her the chills (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
She, steadily walked down the busy road, yet there were no appropriate sidewalks and cars were whizzing by. At any given time, there may have been a million questions/comments/thoughts/replays/intentions and words traveling along the synapses of her nerve endings, overflowing her system and blowing her mind (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
