Rescheduled Phenomenal Touch demo in Camden March 23
CAMDEN - In conjunction with their photography exhibit, "Body as Art," which will be on display throughout the month of March, Antje Roitzsch and Deborah Cautela will present a "Phenomenal Touch" massage demonstration on Saturday, March 23, at 2 p.m. at the Camden Public Library. Antje Roitzsch is a licensed Massage Therapist, Master Phenomenal Touch Practitioner, and artist Deborah Cautela has a bachelor's degree in Social Work and is a 5Rhythms Movement Therapist and Advanced Phenomenal Touch Practitioner.
Said Roitszch, "Our intentions for offering a Phenomenal Touch demonstration at the Camden Public Library is to show the community how beautiful the body is as an art form as well as to show how people can benefit from this form of love disguised as massage. The exhibit in the Picker Room was inspired by the sense of reverence and honor to work with different bodies and body types, treasuring and celebrating each and every one of them. It captures the dance between the receiver and giver of touch. Likewise, the live demonstration invites a rare glimpse into the intimate process of connection, trust, and surrender, to welcome the receiver back into their body."
The demonstration is free and open to the public and will be accompanied by a poetry reading by Barry Portney. The model will be Karen Mack. After the live demonstration, there will be a chance to ask questions and receive more information on Phenomenal Touch and its practitioners.
"Phenomenal Touch is a unique technique to work with the body: massaging, unfolding, finding a new connection to the self, using cradling, falling, catching, deep listening," continued Roitszch. "Changes develop through stretching and the process of trust and touching and have a deep effect on breath, inner peace, and relaxation. Phenomenal Touch is a dance between giver and receiver...it is hard to explain, beautiful to watch, and even nicer to receive."
The Camden Public Library is located at 55 Main Street in Camden. For more information or questions regarding the Phenomenol Touch massage demonstration, contact the library at 236-3440.
