Integrated Restoration Technique – Ilial, Lumbar, and Thoracic Mobilization

December 7 @ 9:00 am - December 8 @ 5:00 pm


Integrated Restoration Technique is a Integrated Restoration Techniquescomprehensive approach toward treatment of soft tissue pain, dysfunction and sport performance utilizing the following: Structural assessment, Structural alignment, Myofascial Mobilization, Muscle Energy Technique and Russian medical massage.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to improve your clients structure, balance and movement through the use of specific Muscle Energy, Joint Mobilization and Myofascial release techniques.

I look at the hips [the ilium] as the beginning point in the process of structural balance. Over 30 muscles attach on and around the hip joint. Ida Rolf called the hip “the joint that determines symmetry”. I view the hips as the foundation for structural balance. I look at the functional and structural health of the hip joint in all clients, not just those in pain.

From this starting point we will also assess and correct ILIAL mal-alignment, anterior/posterior rotations and in/out flares. LUMBAR and THORACIC side-bends, rotations and other dysfunctions. The outcome will help with postural distortions, muscular tonicity, low, mid and upper back pain. We will utilize a combination of soft tissue manual therapy techniques designed to be effective, designed to be efficient and designed to be pain free.

This is a hands-on class, please wear comfortable, loose clothing and shorts as we will be assessing and correcting both the hips and thoracic spine.

  • Massage lubricant is not required
  • Tables are provided
  • Please bring a set of linens
  • A comprehensive 50-page workbook is included

Meet your instructor: Ira Wikel

Integrated Restoration Techniques {IRT} is the brain child of Ira Wikel, LMT. A 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” 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.
