Student Reviews

Massage school student “Lauterstein and Conway provided me a strong foundation in massage while changing my life. The teachers and staff were always supportive and the bond I formed with my classmates was truly one of a kind. Definitely a very memorable chapter of my life.” – Alan Gremillion

massage school student“Graduated in 2017 and massage has changed my life. This school was a very nurturing place to learn and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a career in massage therapy. I’ve never had to look hard for a job, I’ve always gotten good reviews from clients, repeat clients and a wonderful feeling that comes from helping others feel better.” – Leah Vavra

massage school student“One of the best schools in the country! I attended and was licensed in 2016 and have been working as a TA since then because the quality of the environment and educational content are superb. Every time I walk in I am able to refine my massage practice and my holistic being. Good people with integrity.” – Sarah Ziegler

The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School is committed to helping future and current massage therapists achieve their career goals with the most comprehensive massage therapy education available.

Expertise in the field: TLC has been teaching the Art & Science of touch for over 30 years in Austin. David Lauterstein & John Conway started TLC in 1989 to provide a haven for massage therapists to grow, learn, and heal together.

Above & Beyond: Our compassionate instructors care about your success in the classroom and beyond. They offer superlative educational support to help students grow into a profession in which they can be happy and truly help their clients deal with pain, stress, and injury.

Massage is Life: The hands-on training program focuses on technique and quality of touch. Our graduates are the most sought-after therapists for their bodywork knowledge, but even more so for their cultivated intuitive touch.

Together is Better: Our inclusive community supports & encourages all learners. Our superb staff are all committed to helping students feel welcome and enjoy their studies while making life-long connections and building a career.

We got your back: We create a school culture that promotes connection and growth. There is a beautiful phenomenon that happens in the classroom as students learn about their bodies, themselves, and their fellow classmates. The classes become a network of support for each other on campus and in life.

When was the last time you received a professional massage? Were you actively contemplating massage therapy as a career at the time?

The best way to get a 'feel' for massage therapy training is simply to get a student massage from one of your soon-to-be peers. See for yourself what it would be like as a student & intern of massage therapy as well as on the receiving end of a relaxing experience. This is a valuable opportunity to be fully present as a massage client & potential massage therapist and know if this truly is the career path for you. 

As part of massage therapy licensure qualifications, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations require massage therapy students to complete 50 one-hour massage sessions in a supervised setting. We encourage all students to receive a massage at the student clinic before enrolling in the program.
