For therapists Deep Massage – The Lauterstein Method will greatly enhance their understanding and interaction with both the structure and energy of the human being. Students in “Deep Massage I – How to Combine Structure and Energy in Bodywork” will receive 30 clearly articulated and demonstrated techniques that will add immeasurably to their therapeutic repertoire. Enhanced understanding of structural and energetic anatomy will result in greater inspiration and benefit for both therapist and client.  In Deep Massage I you will learn the entire basic Deep Massage Protocol and immediately begin using it with all your clients.


  • 30 new Deep techniques for the back, pelvis, legs, front torso, shoulders, neck and head
  • How to affect fascia through the thixotrophic effect
  • The “fulcrum” model – a systematic method for cultivating optimized touch quality
  • How to simultaneously engage the myofascial and nervous systems
  • The 12 Working signs of mindbody healing – observation skills which facilitate greater structural/energetic impact
  • A higher level of “psychomechanics” as well as body mechanics
  • The 7 Dimensions of Touch – exploring enhanced therapeutic power through centering, enhanced movement, breath, graceful verticality, heart, understanding and inspiration.

This class singularly explores a new philosophy and practice of massage, an approach to touch therapy that affects clients deeply, not necessarily with more pressure, but with a more profound and vital connection. In a world where virtual reality holds prominence, hunger for the experience of actual reality becomes more pronounced and urgently necessary. Deep Massage: Lauterstein Method conveys a powerful therapeutic route for dramatically relieving pain and tension, optimizing wellness and wholeness of body, mind, and spirit.

For therapists who wish to become certified in Deep Massage: Lauterstein Method, this class is the first 20-hour segment in the 60-hour Deep Massage: Certification Program.
