The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School is one of the finest massage and bodywork training programs in the U.S. We are dedicated to graduating massage therapists who are therapeutically masterful, economically successful, and personally fulfilled.
The core curriculum began in 1982 when David Lauterstein began teaching Deep Massage and the Anatomy Training Program at the Chicago School of Massage Therapy. These programs proved fertile ground for more development as John Conway and David Lauterstein later co-evolved the curriculum at the Texas School of Massage Studies (1985-1989).
The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School (TLC) was founded in 1989 to provide a supportive environment for education and healing, through the teaching, administration and physical and spiritual context in which we learn.
Now in our 20th year, the TLC curriculum has grown to include 1,000 hours of massage training annually.
Our Comprehensive 500-Hour Program is one of the only programs of its length that includes detailed training in Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy and Bodywork.
Students become extremely skillful therapists with training in orthopedic massage, sports massage, and deep massage, as well as interweaving structural and integrative bodywork.
