Upcoming Massage Therapy Workshops


Clinical Massage for Lower Back with Bob Steine

Zero Balancing II with David Lauterstein

Thur, Fri, Sat, & Sun, March 16-19

Zero Balancing (ZB) is a hands-on bodywork system which aligns energy and structure. Simple, yet powerful, it focuses on the whole person, while superbly addressing specific needs and symptoms. Considered at the leading edge of body/mind therapies, ZB integrates Western scientific approaches to body structure with Eastern concepts of energy and healing.  Zero Balancing focuses on the balance of energy and structure within the musculo-skeletal system – particularly releasing tension and held energy from the bones, ligaments and their associated soft tissues.

Clinical Massage for Piriformis & SI Joint Dysfunction with Bob Steine

Advanced Neuromuscular Re-Education – The Nemerov Method with Howard Nemerov

Sat & Sun, June 24 – 25

The Nemerov Method is the product of over 25 years of research and development. The Method is complementary to—not in competition with—existing manual therapies (e.g. Orthopedic Massage, Myofascial Release). By combining the basic functional principles of Motor Control Theory (Brooks, The Neural Basis of Motor Control) with functional muscle testing (Kendall, Muscles: Testing and Function) the Method helps practitioners assess and correct compensatory patterns resulting from traumatic injury and repetitive strain/overuse.


7/9 & 23 Cadaver workshops at Texas State (Will open for registration soon)

The Lauterstein-Conway has a wonderful arrangement with Texas State University Physical Therapy Department to visit with already fully dissected cadavers.  Students put on surgical gloves and get to explore all the muscles you have imagined but never really seen!  An unbelievably eye-opening, necessary experience!

It utilizes friction and melting techniques on acupressure points and key muscles accessible through seated massage.  It is drawn from  “Amma” traditional Japanese massage.  This routine is also tremendously beneficial for you as a therapist as it ensures your own physical health by paying unusually close attention to proper body mechanics.

8/ 24-27 – Anatomy Trains with Carrie Gaynor (Will open for registration soon)

You will learn about the myofascial tissue and its many roles in the body. Participants will see the fascial tissues in context and how they are interdependent with the other body systems. We will address differential diagnosis to help identify motor control or soft tissue restrictions and where they may be coming from – we will show you the interdependent relationships between many of the tissues and how they interact. This is the first workshop to combine Anatomy Trains theory alongside structural and functional anatomy and analysis.  This exciting and fun workshop is delivered with clarity and with your practice in mind – you will have useful and usable skills by the end of the four days.
