Pandemic Updates From Owner,

Hello,

Thank you for being here. I’d love to share a bit about what’s going on lately:

After much deliberation and discussion, I am opting to decide that “my body, my rules” is more important than forcing myself to continue to handle the stress of seeing unvaccinated clients in-person. I am happy to offer a safe space for all humans 18 and over via phone or Zoom for the same session rate to accommodate all choices.

The new inbound space is at 8959 SW Barbur Blvd, Portland, OR 97219. It’s a one room office with a small window that opens for fresh air, a communal restroom, and a parking lot. The space is ADA compliant, and we have a chair with a 1,500 lb weight limit, and a bed frame with a 2,400 lb bed frame at ADA height to offer comfort for all bodies.

I am fully vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine as of Feb 20, 2021 (with my second dose being on Feb 6th). I have received a third Pfizer booster shot as of 10/20/21. I am still wearing a mask for all sessions, although for those who are fully vaccinated and haven’t been on a plane or had symptoms or known exposure in the last two weeks days I leave it up to you to decide if you want to wear a mask when you visit.

The Big News: I’m hiring again! Cora is still offering virtual check-ins, but since I still have no eta for the rest of the team to return, it’s time to bring in new folks. All staff will be required to be fully vaccinated, so please be advised if this is a deal breaker for you, it may be time to seek out alternative services. Cuddle Comfort may have listings of folks who are unvaccinated, although we cannot vouch for anyone there as we are unaware of any required training/code of conduct requirements for their listings.

Business is going better overall, and with the kindness and support of our community our future is looking much more promising. We still have a long way to go to create the long-term stability required to survive beyond the ten year mark, June 1, 2023, so please continue to support us however works for you.

I would be very grateful to have you book an appointment, purchase a gift certificate, give a few dollars to help sponsor sessions for those in need, or support me on Patreon for $1 or more per month.

We are grateful to help support you through this time as well, are grateful for your support, and we look forward to brighter days ahead. Please contact me below with any comments/questions/concerns anytime.

Peace, Love, and Cuddles,
Samantha Hess
