My self help guide for looking after your psoas 6 Jul 2019
Given all my clients sit for prolonged periods of time as part of their job which can cause contraction of your psoas muscle. It goes without saying that if you are having problems with your psoas muscle a massage can help, so please feel free to book. Here is what you can do ...
Strengthen Your Psoas Muscle
Straight leg sit-up.
Lying leg raise - lie on the back and raise your straight legs together into the air.
Stretch Your Psoas Muscle
While kneeling extended hip & title pelvis posteriorly.
While lying down (face up) on a bed extend your hip off the side of the bed and pull your other knee into your chest.
The Constructive Rest Position
The Constructive Rest Position (CRP) can relieve low back, pelvic and hip tension while it allows your entire body to come into neutral. Lay on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the floor hip-width apart and parallel to each other. Place your heels a comfortable distance from your buttocks – or about 16 inches away. Do not push your low back into the floor or tuck your pelvis. Rest your arms over your belly. Let gravity do the work. Doing this for 10 to 20 minutes every day will release tension in your psoas muscles and help to reestablish the neuro-biological rhythms that calm and refresh.
