Cuddle Professionals International is the worldwide training, certification and membership body for professionasl cuddlers and therapeutic touch practitioners
Cuddle Professionals provide compassionate, consensual, therapeutic touch to those who are lonely, touch-deprived, disabled, elderly, medically fragile or at the end of life. Whether you are an experienced therapist, a student, an interested health professional, a prospective client or are completely new to CPI, we will warmly welcome you.
Our course teaches you how to use platonic touch as therapy with adults, informed by consent and boundaries. By acknowledging and observing these in a consistent and positive way we create a safe space for our client in which touch, tenderness and vulnerability can be safely manifested.
Our mission is to promote therapeutic touch as a valuable holistic therapy modality, to clarify what it is – and, as importantly, what it isn’t – and to educate by demonstrating that touch is vital to our health and well-being in an increasingly disconnected and medically-ailing society.
We set the gold standard for Cuddle Professionals worldwide, and we are passionate about supporting you on every step of your journey as a CPI practitioner. Our mantra is “Hugs, not Drugs”. Our mission is to promote the consensual, non-sexual holding and touching of adults within defined boundaries as a legitimate and valuable holistic therapy, and to remove the stigma and suspicion surrounding the professional provision of platonic touch.
We are very pleased to be a CMA registerted and approved training provider – book your course with confidence.
