Intentioned Touch: A Practical Guide for Couples
Learn how to
Rediscover your partner
Bring Intimacy back into your relationship
Reconnect with your partner
My name is Matt Gleicher and I’ve had a private Massage Therapy and Bodywork practice for close to 20 years now. Something that comes up again and again with clients who are in relationships is that they are having more and more difficulty in the area of intimacy and communication. Job, kids, exhaustion, not enough time, are all things that can easily pull us away from putting in important time and energy with our partner. Being married for 14 years with 4 children, I can relate 100%.
Many clients have discussed with me about not feeling comfortable giving and receiving touch and that the dialogue around that can be quite difficult. Many people expect their partner to just know what they are thinking, feeling or wanting and are surprised when that’s not the case. Also, some people think they know what their spouse is thinking, feeling or wanting but in reality, they don’t. Some people complained that the passion, flirtation and humor from their relationship had disappeared from their relationship.
I went through an interesting experience about 9 years ago. I’ve been through many classes and trainings for massage and Craniosacral Therapy, but this experience was different and has made a deep impression on me. I was in a Craniosacral Class to learn how to treat babies and children. One of the days, we learned about something they called “Completing a biological Process.” We went off into groups of 3’s, and told we would be re-experiencing our birth process. To make a long story short, I had 4 hands on me and was led through a guided meditation. At a certain point, I felt like I was back in the womb and was even noticing that the Dr in the labor room was in a rush to get me out. Right about that time, one of the teacher assistants in the seminar came over and put two hands on me and just held me. And I felt for the first time such a strong sense that she had all the time in the world for me. That sense that nothing else in the world mattered for her except giving me the space to be me. It felt like she had nowhere else to be but with me. In real time, it wasn’t that long, maybe a few minutes, but I realized that it doesn’t take a long time to make a deep connection given the right space and using the proper healthy intentioned touch one can magnetize it tremendously.
Intentioned Touch is such a profound and powerful tool of communication that it truly has the power to transform our relationships and ultimately the deepest parts of ourselves.
This course will teach about Intentioned Touch in a hands-on experiential way that will help couples:

You can find a way to reconnect with your spouse even if you:
Don’t have a lot of time
