About Me

Jo Brook

I am a warm and open-hearted person. My main loves in life centre around meditation, yoga, self-care, being in nature, ocean swims, kirtan, playing the ukulele, contact improvisation and of course cuddling!  Getting out into public places enjoying flash mobs and social experiments is a fantastic and fun way for me to liberate and express myself, while connecting and sharing love in the community.

I have completed Professional Cuddling training online with both Cuddlist (2018) and

Cuddle Sanctuary (2019).

In early 2020 I was honoured to meet Betty Martin when she came to Perth and I completed

 Like A Pro.

How did I get into Professional Cuddling?

I was going through a difficult period in my life in 2018 and I wanted more connection, more touch, more cuddles!

I had known about Professional Cuddling from a short documentary on Facebook for a long time, and an offical Cuddle Party had started in Perth. 

 

What I wanted though was individual cuddles, on a one-to-one basis with a practitioner who had been through some training. So after some research and asking around, I couldn't find anyone.

 

I then felt very inspired and excited as it dawned on me that I could be that person!

 

I realised that I could offer the service to others like me, who were going through a period of feeling lonely and wanting to feel more connected.

I have wanted to find a way to be in service to others in a meaningful way for over a decade, finding the right modality seemed elusive until now.

 

For the last few years I have discovered a passion for authentic connection, especially through healthy and consensual touch.
