In this workshop we will be Assessing, Balancing and Correcting the CERVICAL SPINE the SACRUM and the CRANIAL VAULT. This is more than a Cranial/Sacral class. The class will be utilizing a combination of Muscle Energy, Joint Mobilization and Myofascial release. You’ll learn how to assess and apply specific corrective techniques for both the Sacrum and Cervical spine. You’ll also learn cranial vault mobilization techniques that help normalize the tone of the intracranial fascia. By correcting mal-alignments we can begin to help alleviate a variety of complaints, such as headaches, TMJ dysfunction, visual, audial, low back, shoulder and neck pain issues.
This class is laid out step by step. It’s easy to learn. It’s too easy not to do

himself, he also has helped me in my training.” Angie B.

Integrated Restoration Techniques [IRT] is the brainchild of Ira Wikel, LMT. A licensed massage therapist since 1982, Ira had been looking for techniques that would produce excellent results without taxing his body. After several hundred hours of continuation education, he put together this “greatest hits” series based on the therapeutic options that work for him. He continues to use them in his practice today and looks forward to teaching more massage therapists these methods.
Ira developed the Integrated Restoration Sports and Wellness Techniques, a 150-hour program that he taught at the Academy of Somatic Healing Arts [ASHA] from 1991-2001.
