Course Description:

This three-day class focuses on the three most critical areas of the body and mind.  Deep Massage: Lauterstein Method is a practical and imaginative bodywork method that works with the body’s structure as well the energy therein.  It is an inspiring and effective way to work deep without hurting yourself, while dramatically assisting the client in letting go of their tensions.

The Feet:
  • Most therapists do not know the anatomy of the feet in detail. Because the feet underlie everything going on in the person, this knowledge is essential.  You will learn the anatomy and kinesiology of the intrinsic muscles of the feet and the deep massage approach to working with the client’s energy and structure through the very ground of their being.
The Abdominal Muscles, the Iliopsoas, and the Muscles of the Posterior and Lateral Pelvis:
  • Ida Rolf “When the pelvis is not balanced, we do not have the upward thrust that creates zero balance, the sense of weightlessness that can be experienced in the body.  When the pelvis is aberrated, it does not allow this equipoise, this tranquility in experience that a balanced pelvis shows.  The combined forces acting on a balanced pelvis are in a moment of inertia near zero…always in dynamic action, but the forces balance out to near zero.”
The Heart:
  • Father Claude Larre, “Heaven and earth meet in the heart; it is their destiny and place of rendezvous.” The realm of the heart is the energetic center of our being with three chakras below and three above. In this part of the class you will learn Deep Massage and Zero Balancing fulcrums for the anterior ribs and muscles and well as the shoulder girdle and arm muscles used to express the emotion and wisdom of the heart.
