New York, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2016
Adam Lippin - CEO of Cuddlist.com and certified Cuddle Party facilitator - announced today the launch of Cuddlist.com - a portal to hire professional cuddlers - along with the Cuddlist Training Academy to train and certify cuddle practitioners.
The act of cuddling promotes physiological health benefits by reducing stress and anxiety hormones. According to Psychology Today - cuddling is so important, it may be worth paying for.
More than 1 in 4 Americans now live alone, according to the latest Current Population Survey, which is the highest percentage ever measured. According to Pew Research, the numbers get even more drastic in cities - where more than half of the population in Manhattan, Washington. D.C., and Los Angeles are living single.
“We’re touch-deprived, and most of us don’t even know it consciously,” says Lippin. “All we know is that there’s loneliness and stress and a deep sense of missing out.”
Increasing scientific evidence clearly shows a connection that lack of touch can lead to depression, anxiety, a myriad of health issues, and an inability to connect with others.
“Touch really is a need like sleep, food and water,” says Madelon Guinazzo, co-founder of Cuddlist. “If the body doesn’t get touch over time, it suffers.”
Lippin is a professional cuddle practitioner (a Cuddlist) and CEO of Cuddlist.com, where his company trains and certifies people to cuddle for a living.
“At Cuddlist, our mission is to offer a safe and simple way to engage the healing power of intimate non-sexual touch in a touch-isolated society,” says Lippin.
Cuddlist was recently featured on The Good Men Project, the Jenny McCarthy Show, and WGN.
