On Friday, April 30th, Lauterstein-Conway Massage School (TLCschool) will be hosting its first free Informal Massage Class at its campus on Burnet Road.

Anyone interested in massage therapy is encouraged to attend.

The Class will focus on massage for the forearm, wrist and hand and will be taught by TLCschool Massage Therapy Instructor Tammie Culley.

According to TLCschool co-director David Lauterstein, an old idea became a good idea when University of Texas at Austin (UT) announced the closing of Informal Classes in August. "We always wanted to be a center for wellness for our whole community, and now there is an even greater need. We are excited to be able to offer this service."

UT's Informal Classes included a class on Couples Massage, which TLCschool has offered to the public as a Valentine's Day workshop for many years.

"We hope the April class will be the first of several," Jennifer Shaw, TLCschool Marketing Director said. "The more people we can expose to the benefits and joy of massage therapy, the better."

No experience, equipment or partner is required for Lauterstein-Conway's Informal Massage Class. All massage will be performed fully clothed.

Because the class is free and space is limited, RSVPs are required.

Future Informal Massage Classes will include massage for the neck, face and scalp, lower leg and foot as well as classes about headaches, breath awareness, reflexology and more. Classes and titles will be announced on as dates are set.

Lauterstein-Conway Massage School also encourages those interested in attending an Informal Massage Class to follow the TLCschool on Facebook or Twitter where regular updates, reminders and class changes will be posted.

The Massage School has been serving Central Texas massage therapists for more than 20 years and is currently enrolling for its June and September 2010 500-hour massage licensing and certification programs.
