Irit Schaffer, MSPT, BA
Irit Schaffer is an intuitive healer and founded her private practice as a physical therapist in 1997. She works with clients of all ages and sees conditions ranging from acute injuries to chronic issues that have not resolved with traditional treatment. Irit also focuses on prevention and wellness. While working with each client, she addresses energetic blocks and limiting and disempowering beliefs that block physical release. She, in addition, helps them tap into their own spirit’s wisdom & understanding, which becomes the foundation, leading to a healing of their body & mind.
Irit earned a Bachelor's degree in Education and Physical Education from McGill University and a Master's of Science degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Southern California. She is also a healer, teacher, and author. Irit has an extensive background in healing outside the traditional medical box growing up in a family of holocaust survivors who demonstrated, on a daily basis, the amazing resilience and healing powers within us. Therefore in addition to her therapeutic background, Irit is gifted with intuitive listening skills that allows her to feel, hear and see in non-physical ways, that she uses to help clients in their own healing.
Through Irit’s physical therapy and healing education over 25 years she has studied a variety of traditions she uses in her practice – craniosacral therapy, strain counter strain techniques, myofascial release, visceral manipulation, exercise training, chi kung healing, applied kinesiology, and wellness to name a few.
