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
