Deepen Your Practice: The Comprehensive Psoas Workshop

Explore the Core of Body Wellness through Assessment, Treatment, and Holistic Techniques

Welcome to an immersive workshop designed to unlock the secrets of one of the body's most crucial muscles: the psoas. This foundational workshop is ideal for bodywork practitioners, sports therapists, massage therapists, and anyone dedicated to enhancing their understanding of the profound impact of the psoas muscle on physical health, emotional well-being, and overall balance.

The Psoas: A Bridge Between Physical and Emotional Health

The psoas muscle is more than just a core stabiliser; it is intricately linked with our fight or flight response, playing a critical role in our emotional and physical stress reactions. Understanding and treating the psoas can lead to profound improvements in mobility, stability, and stress management, benefiting the entirety of the mind-body ecosystem.

What You Will Learn:

  • Psoas Anatomy and Function: Gain a thorough understanding of the psoas muscle's anatomy, its role in the body's movement, and its influence on posture and breathing.

  • Advanced Assessment Techniques: Master the skills to assess the psoas muscle's health and function, identifying imbalances, tightness, or weakness that may contribute to physical and emotional discomfort.

  • Soft Tissue and Myofascial Release Techniques: Explore targeted techniques to release and rebalance the psoas, including specific soft tissue therapies and myofascial release strategies designed to enhance mobility and reduce pain.

  • Breathing and Relaxation: Learn how to integrate breathing and relaxation exercises to facilitate psoas release, supporting deeper healing and stress relief.

  • The Mind-Body Connection: Delve into the relationship between the psoas muscle and the nervous system, understanding how to use this connection to promote a holistic sense of well-being in clients.

  • Creating Holistic Treatment Plans: Develop the ability to combine your assessment findings with a comprehensive range of treatment strategies, crafting personalised care plans that address the physical and emotional aspects of psoas health.
