Integrated Restoration Techniques for studies in physical medicine.

Structural Alignment for Treatment and Pain Relief

- a clinical and sports approach.

This two-day class focuses on the principles and philosophies of Eastern European style integrated sports massage.

The East Europeans have been using massage at athletic events since 1927. The work is based on scientific and medical investigations dating back to 1881.

The class will present both pre and post-event techniques including multiple types of effleurage, friction, vibration, range of motion and muscle energy. Also being covered will be the effects of massage on the skin, muscle, connective tissue, tendon, ligament, joints and nervous systems. Each massage stroke is designed to produce specific results.

We will cover both Pre and Post-event techniques, injuries, heat and cold applications, neurological and structural assessments. These applications will apply to both professional, world and weekend athletes. All techniques are designed to be pain-free for both the athlete as well as the therapist.

This is a hands-on class, please wear comfortable, loose clothing/shorts as we will be both assessing and correcting distortions or dysfunctions.

  • Massage lubricant is not required
  • Tables are provided
  • Please bring a set of linens and light blanket
  • A comprehensive 70-page workbook is included

    Ira Wikel & Pat Barnes

    Ira Wikel

    Integrated Restoration Techniques {IRT} is the brainchild of Ira Wikel, LMT. A massage therapist since 1982, Ira was one of the original 100 members of the National Sports Massage team and a massage therapist for the 1984 and 1996 Olympic Games. Ira had been looking for techniques that would produce excellent results without taxing his body. After several hundred hours of continuing education, he put together this “greatest hits” package 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.

    Pat Barnes

    Pat Barnes is a licensed massage therapist who graduated from ASHA School of Massage and then joined the staff there teaching with Ira Wikel. Pat has also taught Sports Therapy and Myofascial Release for Gwinnett College, Sandy Springs. Pat uses the principles of IRT in his daily practice. The addition of a second instructor in the IRT series ensures that each student will get the most of their hands-on instruction.
