We took a trip to Portland, Oregon recently and had to chance to meet a person who is looking to literally touch people's lives.
Samantha Hess opened "Cuddle Up to Me" over a year ago in the Rose City to help with her demand for touch therapy business. Hess and her staff offer non-sexual “cuddle” sessions in which to treat many problems like stress, depression, and recovery from anything from addiction, abuse, or a simple break up.
Hess also authored a book about her creating her brand of therapy called “Touch: The Power of Human Connection”.
We talked to Hess about the growth of her business and how her techniques have been helping people throughout the world.
