"The opportunity to study with the founder, Leslie Bruder, is a rare gift. She is a true master of her craft who has expressed a lifelong dedication to birthing a living art. Her teaching changed my work and my life and is why I am the massage therapist I am today. Your work cannot help but be transformed in her presence. Don't miss this chance to go to the next level. Your clients will be forever grateful."

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 yourself 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 more round and 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!
