When it comes to alternative therapy, many of us will think of essential oils, yoga, or even marijuana. One form of alternative therapy that has seen a recent boom is “alternative touch therapy” or snuggle services. Yes, snuggling is a form of therapy and there are professionals here in the Treasure Valley ready to give you the cuddles you need. The company is called Alt Touch Therapy and they’re offering their services right here in Boise.

“We strive to provide you with the safest, most reliable, and skilled source of 100% platonic alternative touch therapy service in Idaho,” writes Charlotte Lindsay, owner and founder of Alt Touch Therapy on their Yelp page.

“Platonic human touch releases Oxytocin,” shares Lindsay, “Oxytocin has a major role in lowering blood pressure, lowering stress levels, reducing social anxiety, helping to relieve pain, and protecting against inflammation.”

As wild as this may sound to some, it actually makes a lot of sense. The business itself is 100% platonic, they establish boundaries, and multiple reviews cite the experience as being rejuvenating and most importantly, safe. Learn more about their services and their benefits here!
