Founder and co-owner of Aloha Cuddle Company, Professional Cuddler since June 2015
Available: Monday – Sunday 7am-10pm
Aloha! I am the founder of Aloha Cuddle Company in Honolulu, Hawaii. I believe in the power of touch and do my best to heal the world with my love and attention as much as I can.
In 2009, I started a group called “Oxytocin for Old Folks” in Gunnison Colorado, which was just a group of fun loving people who went to the neighborhood nursing home once a month to give touch to the residents there. We touched their shoulders, their scalps, their hands and of course their hearts. I wanted to be there for people who were starving for touch and unfortunately many elderly people are.
When I moved to Oahu in 2013, I started organizing free hug events in Waikiki once a month. I love the smiles and joy on the faces of not only the people walking by who are receiving the hugs, but also the friends and strangers who come to give out the hugs. They just become these beautiful beings of love and affection! Sadly, Americans are so touch deprived. We want to reach out and hug strangers; we just don’t know how to. I like to think I am training people how to do what they were born to do. I help them remember that they are love.
I started Aloha Cuddle Company in June of 2015 for people who need touch. We all need touch, but some people aren’t getting their fair share. I want to be there for them. If babies aren’t touched, they die. Thank goodness adults don’t die when they are touch deprived, but are they truly living?
Besides hugging and cuddling, I enjoy circus arts such as hula hooping, acro yoga and stilt walking. I also love to write articles on love for Elephant Journal. It’s important for me to stay healthy and strong, so I make sure to eat a plant based diet and exercise every day. I have liberal views, but I get along with everyone and I pass no judgement on people or their chosen path. We’re all on our own journey and our unique experiences to log. I’m just happy to make a connection with any type of human as long as they are kind and open to receiving my love!
Professional cuddler since January 2016 and co-owner since February 2017
Aloha friends! My name is Celeste and I am co-owner of Aloha Cuddle Company! My true passion is to be able to bring love and positivity through human interaction and most importantly through touch.
What I love most about Aloha Cuddle Company is that not only do I get to help my community by bringing positivity and love through touch, but it also brings happiness to my heart. Cuddling is truly healing. I am here, arms open, for any beautiful soul that is walking my way looking for some cuddles!
Professional Cuddler since May 2018
Aloha! My name is Katie, and I have been with Aloha Cuddle Company since May 2018. I believe in the power of acceptance and support through comfort, love, positivity, and of course…touch!
Our culture is touch deprived, and I felt this through out my youth. When a classmate is feeling down and could use a hand on the shoulder to show support, we don’t reach out because of our cultural norms. So we all suffer from less loving touch! Aloha Cuddle Company is here to change that.
The best part about cuddling is just feeling accepted, and worthy as you are. We all need to be reminded through touch that we are special, and worth it.
I study acupuncture and oriental medicine. I feel blessed to be able to connect with people and offer a space for them to heal. Like every healer, we see people from all walks of life. No matter who you are, or where you have been, we all deserve love and unconditional positive regard. I have been interested in Cuddle services for a few years now, and have frequently enjoyed unofficial cuddle sessions with friends or strangers.
We all have unique stories to tell that are personal and of the world. I value the uniqueness of individuals, and see it as one thread in the tapestry of the universe. I accept each person as they are, and offer unconditional positive regard and support to be their best self, or simply to stand up after falling down!
Thank you for taking care of yourself, and reaching out to meet your needs. I am excited to hold space for you to feel the heal of loving touch!
