INTEGRATED POSITIONAL THERAPY
with Patricia Smith
Integrated Positional Therapy is a state of the art muscle energy and strain - counter strain technique used to release the body’s habitual holding patterns that over the years have lead to postural distortion, repetitive strain, stress, and muscle pain. It is a manual therapy that is gentle and non-invasive, designed to eliminate pain at its root cause and not just hide the symptom. IPT has shown to be effective in the treatment of chronic and acute muscular pain and for increasing range of motion.
The treatment includes a careful assessment and evaluation of posture followed by locating tender and stressed muscles and then applying counter strain to place the affected muscles in a position of comfort where the pain is released from the tender point. Positional Therapy achieves its benefits by resetting muscle spindles. Relief can be immediate and long lasting. A wellness plan is created together with the client to maintain results.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. You should not participate in Integrated Positional Therapy if you have had a surgical procedure in the past 6 months.
