DEEP MASSAGE: THE LAUTERSTEIN METHOD
How to Combine Structure and Energy in Bodywork
with David Lauterstein, RMT, Cert.ZB
Dates: August 2nd to 5th 2018 (4 days)
If you touch the tissues in a manner that causes the nervous system to relax and energy to flow, you will have the optimum therapeutic benefit. “Deep” is not about pressure; it is about cultivating the individual touch interface that optimally responds to dis-ease, dis-position and destiny. DL
Deep Massage – ‘The Lauterstein Method’, enables the massage therapist to engage with the logic, vitality and beauty of the human body and is David’s unique approach to structural and energetic bodywork. It has its roots in the traditions of Zero Balancing, Rolfing and Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
David Lauterstein is author of The Deep Massage Book: How to Combine Structure and Energy in Bodywork and Putting the Soul Back in the Body: A Manual of Imaginative Anatomy for Massage Therapists. He is the Co-founder of The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School, recipient of the 2012 and 2013 “Educator of the Year” awards in the U.S. from the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education and AMTA. He has been an enamoured friend and student of Dr. Fritz Smith, the founder of Zero Balancing, since 1986 and ZB faculty member since 1996.

David’s teaching will broaden your anatomical knowledge, and your understanding of the dynamic life of soft tissue. The effect of the work is unique and deeply satisfying to the mind and spirit, giving your clients a new sense of themselves. Participants will practice with each other enabling them to get valuable feedback as they work.
Deep Massage I
This will give students the skills to complete a Deep Massage session that addresses the entire body. At the heart of this method is the ability to touch energy as well as structure, simultaneously and consciously, with soft tissue fulcrums. This will include an exploration of David’s model of Seven Dimensions of Touch. They will also learn how to use working signs to optimize touch and session design. You will be able to give your clients a complete session when you leave the course.
Deep Massage II
This will introduce different ways to address specific areas of the body – building on what has been previously learnt. You will refine your understanding of Deep Massage theory, learn techniques for deeper muscles and ways to work in side-lying and seated positions.
Deep Massage III
There are the words, then there is the song. DM III both deepens and elevates the theory and practice of Deep Massage. Students will explore how to integrate the fulcrum and the Seven Dimensions of Touch into their massage, adding wisdom and artistry to their work, and deeper satisfaction and wellbeing to their clients. DMIII includes tutorials with individual attention.
These three classes will run concurrently, joining the three groups together for most lectures and discussions, with participants at the different levels working in their individual groups for their hands-on practice.
This workshop will offer 26 hours CPD
