This will be our first level one class taught in Rome, Italy by the founder Leslie Bruder and her amazing Instructors!
Since the time Phenomenal Touch Massage Practitioners won first, second AND third prize in the World Massage Competition held in Copenhagen Denmark in 2018, Europe has been exposed to this amazing work!
In 2022, we were invited to present Phenomenal Touch Massage at the World Massage Meeting in Bologna, Italy where many people got to see a live demonstration of Phenomenal Touch Massage by its founder Leslie Bruder.
Many viewers were deeply touched by the beauty, the flow, the dance and reverence of this unique massage that seamlessly works three dimensionally undulating the spine and moving the body in dynamic yet slow spirals of deep listening.
We have been invited back by Ivan Conversano, the head of the European Massage Association, to offer the first authentic PTM level one practitioner certification training in Rome, Italy.
This course will be taught over a five-day period in order to give more spaciousness than our normal four-day course. It will be held in a magnificent center called YogAyur.

Here is what you will be learning....
Welcome to the Level One class in Phenomenal Touch® massage. We are excited to be able to share this unique, sacred & exquisite form of massage with you. Level One includes all the signature principles and moves of Phenomenal Touch® massage.
By taking this class, you are embarking upon a journey into a new realm and a new dimension of touch. You are invited to deepen your connection with the heart and body of both you and your clients. You are encouraged to listen deeply, to follow and move the body in a new way, to drop into your center and become rounder and more fluid and three-dimensional than you have ever been.
All of what you have learned up to this point can be enhanced with Phenomenal Touch® massage. This is not only a new method of bodywork that can be utilized on its own accord, but it is also a collection of principles and moves that can be added into your pre-existing modalities of choice. It turns touch into dance, work into exploration, and form into an organic unfolding of the body’s natural rhythms. It can be deep and specific, fluid and seamless, undulating or still. It is limitless.
The more you open yourselves to the myriad of ways these principles and moves can be integrated into your present body of knowledge, the more you will take away from this class. We are here to help guide each one of you to find the way in which Phenomenal Touch massage can be a gift to you and your clients. No matter what your preference in style, we urge you to find a way to let this class mold you into something you would not have been without it. Let it shape you, change you, make you better than you ever thought you could be... perhaps even phenomenal!
