This week on All The Best we’re exploring why we crave touch from each other and how that connection can be like a kind of therapy.
‘My Pre-COVID Cuddle’ by Lee Robinson
The lockdown rules last year left many feeling disconnected and devoid of physical contact. Now more than ever, some of us just want a hug.
Before COVID was a thing, Lee Robinson paid a visit to cuddle therapist Sarah Belle to explore the benefits of platonic touch in a 1-on-1 cuddle session.
This story was made as part of a series exploring Australians with interesting jobs, called Do Quit Your Day Job.
