Phenomenal Touch Massage Practitioner Certification
Requires Homework + 8 hrs mentoring total
PTM Practitioner Training
In order to become a Certified Phenomenal Touch Practitioner a student must attend 5 classes that are four days each (Levels One through Five). During this training, students will be exposed to over 100 PTM moves and 125 PTM principles that will transform their touch forever. Completing these five levels (total of 20 days) will enable one to graduate as a Practitioner. However, this is just the first coat of paint. There is a tremendous amount of information in this first Practitioner Program and only so much can be absorbed of all that is presented. In order to deepen in the work and apply a second coat (level) of paint, students attend the next level of Practitionership, the Advanced Practitioner Training.
PTM Advanced Practitioner Training
The Advanced Practitioner Training works with the same sets of moves and principles as the Practitioner Training but at a much deeper level. After being exposed to everything in the original Practitioner Training, students take some time to practice and work with all they have learned and then return to understand what they have been practicing in a more precise, consistent and specific way. Often one requires the Advanced Practitioner Training to begin to delve into the moves and principles in a much more comprehensive way. Allowing the work to really resonate and reveal the detail; as would a second coat of paint.
PTM Master Practitioner Training
The Master Practitioner Training is meant for those students who earnestly want to take the complex work of Phenomenal Touch to achieve its highest level of art form. Often these practitioners aspire to become Certified as an Instructor of Phenomenal Touch Massage within the Institute. The Master Practitioner training clarifies, defines & reveals the intention & grace of this work. The third coat of paint perfects and refines the moves and principles to mastery level. Students who aspire to this Mastery may be required to mentor other students in class as a way of further embracing the work in preparation to becoming a true Master Practitioner & potentially on to becoming a Certified Instructor of Phenomenal Touch.
This work is truly an infinite landscape of touch that improves and deepens over time, like a good wine.
The PTM Instructor Certification Training
To be recognized as a Certified Instructor of Phenomenal Touch Massage, as prerequisites, students need to achieve Practitioner, Advanced Practitioner and Master Practitioner Certifications. Upon Master Certification, one may then apply to attend the PTM Instructor Training. This training involves being an instructor's assistant (including all instructor meetings throughout the Practitionership with feedback and assessment) for One Complete Practitioner Program, i.e., five levels. When the master student successfully passes their assessment, he or she will then, as a final exam, lead their own trial class. Where they organize and instruct a level one PTM class to be assessed and critiqued by Leslie Bruder, the founder. When they pass, they are then eligible to teach PTM under the auspices of the Institute for Phenomenal Touch, Payments for classes Instructors teach will be made to the IPT n and Instructor is paid their share by the IPT . If the master student does not pass the instructor exam assessment the first time, they may retake the instructor training, continuing to perfect their form & teaching skills, with the goal of successfully passing the examination assessment & be recognized as a certified Instructor.
The Instructor training is a powerful and deep way to learn all that you do and do not yet know about Phenomenal Touch Massage. In the loving and supportive process of learning to teach the work, students inevitably become a better practitioner than they ever imagined they could be!
Upon completion of the Instructor training, not only do new instructors have the wonderful, exciting privilege of sharing this wonderful work with the world, but of also being a part of the Phenomenal Touch Family of love and care forever!
