No, this is not shivering– she literally gets chills from belly rubs. Like we would... I don't know--- I see where you could read this as "chills" in the cold/shivering aspect. But this is more of in the romantic/sensitive chills. Not sure if I'm making any sense. My dad used to call it "chicken skin"-- like if someone blows behind your ear...? lol... I will have to take a video, I guess!
