Integrated Positional Therapy

Integrated Positional Therapy (IPT), or “Yoga on the Table,” is a fully clothed, non­invasive, therapeutic technique based on yoga and osteopathic practices that focus on relieving pain by bringing the skeletal structure into balance through the muscular system. Clients lie comfortably on a massage table for the entirety of the session.

IPT skillfully combines the application of two well-established and clinically recognized neuromuscular treatment approaches: strain-counterstrain (SCS) and muscle energy technique (MET), specifically developed to address chronic and acute neuromuscular pain, and improve muscular-skeletal function and ease. Focused breathwork is also included.

IPT can be particularly helpful for hip, neck, shoulder, and back pain; sciatica; plantar fasciitis; knee, and ankle pain; tennis and golfer’s elbow; carpal tunnel syndrome; headaches; and many other conditions.

Lori trained directly with Lee Albert, NMT, founder of IPT, at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, author of “Live Pain-Free: Eliminate Chronic Pain without Drugs or Surgery” and “Yoga for Pain Relief: A New Approach to an Ancient Practice.”

Clients may request Integrated Positional Therapy as a stand-alone therapy, or in conjunction with Yoga Therapy.
