Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 01, 2011
The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School is proud to announce that its co-founder David Lauterstein will be inducted into the Massage Therapy Hall of Fame this summer July 2011. According to the World Massage Therapy Festival, the Massage Therapy Hall of Fame “has been created to honor those having furthered the profession of massage therapy. These folks are the Bridge Builders for all massage therapists!”
Lauterstein will be inducted for his work furthering massage education through his school Lauterstein-Conway Massage School in Austin TX, as a faculty member of the Zero Balancing Health Association and the developer of Deep Massage: The Lauterstein Method. He has been a massage and bodywork instructor since 1982. For more information on the Lauterstein-Conway Massage School, please visit http://www.tlcschool.com.
According to David Lauterstein, “The history of massage therapy and alternative medicine in the last thirty years has been astonishingly rich with new ideas and techniques. We are living in the renaissance of manual arts and sciences. The Massage Therapy Hall of Fame is the first exciting recognition for all the major people who have contributed to this renaissance.”
Lauterstein says, "Many medical disciplines are identified as healthcare. But when it really comes to the caring aspect of healthcare, massage therapy is supreme -- because we work in sustained contact, with the human hand and heart, guided by scientific knowledge of the body, mind and spirit. I thank the Hall of Fame for their recognition of the deep role that care plays in our health. I promise to use this honor as inspiration to continue making progress in hands-on healthcare through my school and teaching.”
