Essential Touch - With Alan Jordan or Valerie Zehring
Essential Touch is a form of therapy that involves the use of platonic physical touching, such as holding or cuddling, as a means of promoting emotional well-being and healing. It is often used as a complementary therapy for people who are dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, or other emotional issues.
Essential Touch provides a compassionate and nurturing experience of non-sexual human touch for individuals who:
-Seek to understand and delve deeper into the significance of touch and human connection in a safe and non-judgmental setting.
-Feel a lack of touch in their lives or simply desire more human connection for various reasons.
-Are searching for a secure avenue to overcome their fear of touch on their own terms, within a safe environment.
-Struggle with social anxiety and are in need of a supportive space to develop social skills and boost confidence.
-Simply desire the comfort of holding someone or being held.
What Happens During An Essential Touch Session?
One of the benefits of an Essential Touch session is that it does not need to observe a strict protocol. An Essential touch session may be designed and even changed on-the-fly to best meet the needs of the client. A session may be as simple as just talking, or holding hands, or practicing gentle touch to a "safe place" on the body. A session may include touching, hugging, cuddling, stroking hair, or caressing in a sitting, standing, or lying position.
The most important considerations during any session are mutual respect and the comfort of each person. Essential Touch sessions are comfortable, easy-going, non-judgemental, and pressure-free.
Essential Touch takes place in a quiet, gentle, informal, and healing atmosphere. Both parties must be comfortable for any touch to proceed. The session may be stopped at any time by either party for any reason.
