taking a multitude of short workshops in Phenomenal Touch and assisting in a
few, I decided to enroll in the Institute For Phenomenal Touch Massage. The
result has been spectacular. With just a subtle shift in application, my
longtime clients think I'm performing brand new moves. And they love what
I'm doing. This course has opened my heart so that my massage delivers love
with every stroke. My clients feel that deeply."
the last 15 years, I have practiced a variety of massage. My search has gone
beyond the physical. And finally I discovered that a Master truly exists, a
woman who believes that one can be taught how to love, trust and heal from
the inside out. All you have to do is reach out and join in the dance of
phenomenal touch and you will find this master too. My heart felt thanks to
the gentle and inspirational teaching of Leslie Bruder and the teaching
assistants, and through the profound connection with my fellow students at
the Institute for Phenomenal Touch Massage, I'm am becoming the person I
knew I could be. This deep heartfelt in-depth instruction of the art of 3-D
massage is transforming my inner being in ways I never dreamed possible. The
richness, care, and love goes far beyond simply learning how to do the most
beautiful massage on the planet. It, in it's fullest sense, allows us to
reach a much deeper human potential."
