The sacrum is, by translation, the sacred bone in the body. As a landmark in our structure, much of our alignment and ease of movement can be traced back to the position of the sacrum. In this workshop we will explore how we can support the sacrum in our clients and make lasting changes through bodywork as hands-on practitioners. This workshop is for you if you have clients with a history of herniated lumbar discs or recurring low back and hip pain,  or have had a client who couldn’t sit for any length of time without lower back discomfort.  You will learn three critical alignment tools for preventing low back and sacral pain, how to use muscle spindles and Golgi tendon organs to create a daily phenomenon in your treatment room, the best way to determine sacral misalignment and how to remedy it without chiropractic adjustments, and if herniated discs or pregnancy are more harmful to sacral alignment (it’s not what you think).  I’ll take you through step-by step-actions  so you can produce world class results, safely. You will leave with an arsenal of simple therapeutics that you can implement immediately, making you a thorough and effective practitioner, no longer afraid of pain and able to help clients with physical injuries and limitations. What to bring: comfortable workout clothes (no jeans). Suggested reading: The Anatomy Coloring Book and Musculoskeletal Anatomy; both are available at

ginaschatzGina Schatz, BA, LMT, NCTBM E-RYT Gina is a change agent: she changes people’s relationship to pain, injury and injury prevention through movement and hands-on therapy. She developed a method to assist bodies in functioning to their optimal potential and shares this method nationally with other practitioners to support them in transforming their practices. Gina’s fascination with the way the body moves and intrinsic strength began as a young girl and influenced everything from her work to pastime activities, leading her into more than a decade of dance instruction and yoga studies. She has been known to stop people on the street and offer them an ankle tracking or other simple therapeutics when they are exhibiting pain. This behavior is more acceptable in NYC. Prior to relocating permanently to NYC, Gina owned and operated a successful private practice in Cleveland for 19 years and was the CEO and creative director to Cleveland’s first integrated wellness clinic. Currently she teaches her method to all hands-on practitioners nationally, teaches anatomy to several Yoga Alliance certified schools and is licensed and sees clients privately in New York, Ohio and California.
