Deep Massage: The Lauterstein Method Intensive – Ithaca
May 12, 2017 - May 14, 2017
The Deep Massage Intensive covers the entire content of David Lauterstein’s The Deep Massage Book: How to Combine Structure and Energy in Bodywork, reviewed as “the most innovative bodywork book in the last 30 years (Bob King).” Students will learn to work smarter not harder. Increasingly research is showing us that pain is coming from the nervous system and that tension similarly is neurological rather than muscular in origin. Deep Massage will give you a way to systematically work with energy (nervous system) as well as structure (myofascia). We will cover all the basic Deep Massage theory as well giving you 28 new techniques for the legs, pelvis, back, front torso, shoulders, arms, neck and head.This class is also open to past students of Deep Massage who will also learn new fulcrums for the working in the side-lying position, as well as advanced work for the iliopsoas, deep lateral rotators, the rotator cuff, and the neck.David Lauterstein, LMT, MTI, Cert.
