Integrated Positional Therapy Workshops
Integrated Positional Therapy is a program of Manual Therapy that is designed from Lee Albert's training and experience of massage school, working with physical therapists, training in orthopedic massage, myofascial release and neuromuscular therapy. Lee developed his own approach that is based upon the movements of Strain/Counterstrain and Contract/Relax. Lee looks at this from the viewpoint that in order to relieve the presenting condition it is vital that the body is brought into balance first by aligning the structure.
This balance is achieved by applying Strain/Counterstrain, Contract Relax and home care to eliminate the cause of most neuromuscular pain patterns. These techniques effectively treat pain due to injury, stress, repetitive strain, postural distortion and chronic neuromuscular conditions.
This class is for professionals including medical doctors, massage therapists, personal trainers, osteopaths, chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, yoga teachers and nurses and it is easy enough for lay people to learn and use on themselves, friends and family.
These workshops are held at the world renowned Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Lenox, Massachusetts. During your workshop you can enjoy miles of hiking trails and healthy, delicious food that is expertly prepared. Enjoy a soak in the hot tub or take a yoga class.

Professionals can earn 20 CEC's for Level 1, 22 for Level 2 and 27 for Level 3.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing. This program is not for those in acute pain.
A training manual and a certificate is included in the tuition for each level.
There were clear, concise explanations and presentation of the course. Lee made the course work very accessible to us. His presentation showed good planning and reflected a wealth of direct experience with patients. He is a skillful and compassionate teacher. One of the best learning experiences of my life.
I feel for the first time after a weekend workshop that I will remember the information. Lee's approach to teaching what he loves is the best I have attended.
