Ira Wikel

Ira Wikel - Sports Massage

Description:

This two day class focuses on the principals and philosophies of Russian style sport massage. The Russians have been using massage at athletic events since 1927.  The work is based on scientific and medical investigation 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. The class will cover how to recognize and treat five specific sport injuries.

Integrated Restoration Techniques is the brain child of Ira Wikel, LMT. A massage therapist since 1982, Ira has been looking for techniques that would produce excellent results without taxing his body. After thirty years of continuing education classes, 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 sharing this unique, pain-free method with fellow massage therapists.

This is a hands on class pleases wear comfortable, loose clothing and shorts as we will be both assessing and correcting distortions or dysfunctions. Includes a seventy-page workbook.

“Awesome class, I loved everything about it”
“Ira brings this subject to a new level.”
“ I wish there was more time to pick his brain”

“ I learned a great deal of valuable techniques which will benefit all my clients”

Ira Wikel - IRT Series - Ilial, Lumbar, & Thoracic Mobilization Workshop

Description:

In this workshop you’ll learn how to improve your clients structure 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 sidebends, 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.

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.

This is a hands on class please wear comfortable, loose clothing and shorts as we will be both assessing and correcting both the hips and thoracic spine.
Massage oil is not required.

Ira Wikel - Positional Release and Indirect Technique Workshop

Description:

Positional Release Technique is a method of total body evaluation using tender points [TP’s] and a position of ease {POE]} to resolve the associated dysfunction. This technique is well suited for clients that are in a great deal of discomfort such as Fibromyalgia, Polymyalgia rheumatic or chronic fatigue syndrome, because the client’s body part is moved away from the resistance barrier, i.e., the direction of greatest ease.

Furthermore, these techniques are passive, the therapist performs all the movement without the help of the client. All three planes of movement are used to attain the position of greatest comfort. Once the most severe tender points are found, they are palpated as a guide to help find the POE. The POE produces optimal relaxation of the involved tissues.

Integrated Restoration Techniques [IRT] is the brain child 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’ package based on the therapeutic options that work for him. He continues to use them in his practice today and look forward to teaching more massage therapists these methods.

This is a hands on class please wear comfortable, loose clothing and shorts as we will be both assessing and correcting full body dysfunctions.

All of Ira’s classes come with a 50 page workbook.

Description:

This class is a Direct Fascial technique class designed to align the body from top to bottom, front to back and side to side. This class is designed to be PAIN FREE. This class will include at least thirty specific techniques for a complete treatment and will be pain free for both therapist and client.

Fascia is a layer of fibrous tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves, binding some structures together while permitting other to slide smoothly over each other.

Fascia is continuous with specialized elements of fascia such as tendons and ligaments. Tendons and ligaments share with the general fascia collagen fibers, elastic fibers, cellular elements and ground substances. Mechanorecptors and proprioceptors are found in these specialized elements and report to the brain and spinal cord information on body position and movement.

Integrated Restoration Techniques  is the brain child of Ira Wikel, LMT. A massage therapist since 1982, Ira has been looking for techniques that would produce excellent results without taxing his body. After thirty years of continuing education classes, he put together this ‘greatest hits’ package based on the therapeutic options that work for him.

Ira Wikel - IRT Series - Ilial, Lumbar, & Thoracic Mobilization Workshop (This is not a chiropractic class)

Description:

In this workshop you’ll learn how to improve your clients structure 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 sidebends, 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.

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.

This is a hands on class please wear comfortable, loose clothing and shorts as we will be both assessing and correcting both the hips and thoracic spine.
Massage oil is not required.

All of Ira’s classes come with a 50 page workbook.

Dawn Lewis - Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique

This course will be held at the Sandy Springs campus.

Course Options

SMRT:  Head and Neck
Course Description:  SMRT:  Head and Neck class or DVD will help you to work with all structures in the neck and head.  You will learn to successfully work with:

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Forward Head Syndrome
  • Sub-Occipital Neuralgia
  • Headaches, including Occipital, Migraine, Temporal, and Frontal headaches
  • TMJ Disorders
  • Structures in the anterior Neck
  • Whiplash

Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique (SMRT) is a series of passive contractions that allow therapists to release muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue quickly, easily, and with little pain to you or the client.  Benefits of SMRT include:

  • natural realignment of joints by directly releasing specific ligaments and joint structures
  • pain free resolution of trigger points
  • swift and painless removal of adhesions
  • disruption of the positive feedback loops of pain in the nervous system:
  • speaking directly to the proprioceptors of the nervous system
  • SMRT has an incredibly calming effect and decreases nervous system hyper-sensitivity
  • extreme stimulation of the lymphatic system:
  • SMRT's subtle manual maneuvers activate lymph and interstitial fluid circulation
  • rapid elimination of excess fluid, toxins, and waste
  • unblocking of meridians and removal of stagnant energy

All of this is done quickly, with almost no pain to the client, and in a way that is tremendously easy on your body.  Because we have disrupted the pain loops, settled the parasympathetic nervous system, created almost no additional pain, and brought the area back to homeostasis, the results of an SMRT treatment last.  Join us for a hands-on class or study by DVD and learn to unlock all structures in the head and neck.

Class and DVD are worth 12 CE's

SMRT:  Back & Spine
Course Description:  SMRT:  Back & Spine class or DVD will help you to work the entire back, including the posterior shoulder, spine, floating ribs, and lower back.  You will learn to successfully work with:

Ira Wikel - Positional Release and Indirect Technique Workshop

Description:

Positional Release Technique is a method of total body evaluation using tender points [TP’s] and a position of ease {POE]} to resolve the associated dysfunction. This technique is well suited for clients that are in a great deal of discomfort such as Fibromyalgia, Polymyalgia rheumatic or chronic fatigue syndrome, because the client’s body part is moved away from the resistance barrier, i.e., the direction of greatest ease.

Furthermore, these techniques are passive, the therapist performs all the movement without the help of the client. All three planes of movement are used to attain the position of greatest comfort. Once the most severe tender points are found, they are palpated as a guide to help find the POE. The POE produces optimal relaxation of the involved tissues.

Integrated Restoration Techniques [IRT] is the brain child 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’ package based on the therapeutic options that work for him. He continues to use them in his practice today and look forward to teaching more massage therapists these methods.

This is a hands on class please wear comfortable, loose clothing and shorts as we will be both assessing and correcting full body dysfunctions.

All of Ira’s classes come with a 50 page workbook.

Ira Wikel - Myofascial Release (MFR)

Description:

Fascia is a layer of fibrous tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves, binding some structures together while permitting other to slide smoothly over each other. This class is a Direct Fascial technique with thirty specific routines included.

Fascia is continuous with specialized elements of fascia such as tendons and ligaments. Tendons and ligaments share with the general fascia collagen fibers, elastic fibers, cellular elements and ground substances. Mechanorecptors and proprioceptors are found in these specialized elements and report to the brain and spinal cord information on body position and movement.

By working with the fascial envelop you can begin to correct any mal-alignments of the body including: postural, positional, work or sport related, as well as physical and emotional issues.

Integrated Restoration Techniques is the brain child of Ira Wikel, LMT. A massage therapist since 1982, Ira has been looking for techniques that would produce excellent results without taxing his body. After thirty years of continuing education classes, 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 therapists these methods.

This class is a Direct Fascial technique class designed to align the body from top to bottom, front to back and side to side. This class is designed to be PAIN FREE.

ALL OF IRA'S CLASSES COME WITH A 50 PAGE WORKBOOK.

Ira Wikel - IRT Series - Ilial, Lumbar, & Thoracic Mobilization Workshop

Description:

In this workshop you’ll learn how to improve your clients structure 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 sidebends, 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.

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.

This is a hands on class please wear comfortable, loose clothing and shorts as we will be both assessing and correcting both the hips and thoracic spine.
Massage oil is not required.

Please bring sheets, both top and bottom.

All of Ira’s classes come with a 50 page workbook.
