The majority of people I meet discover their Psoas due to pain or tension they simply cannot resolve. I hear this story over and over everywhere I go. Eventually a health care provider points out that they think the problem is the person’s PSOAS! What Psoas? The person then goes looking for their Psoas. Now the general public is just beginning to wake up to the fact there is a muscle called the Psoas and health care providers are exploring a somewhat limited perspective of how to work with the Psoas. This often leads the person who is still in pain to seek out treatment for their difficult and belligerent Psoas. Often times by the time the person finds me he/she has had their Psoas pummeled, stretched, and trigger pointed by various therapists, teachers and well meaning folk attempting to help resolve the problem. However the results are most often short-lived relief or finding no relief at all. The person may begin a self search and eventually connect with me feeling disconcerted, frustrated, and at their wits end.
My invitation to every body is to discover YOUR own Psoas. Learn to understand what I called the messenger of the mid-line, learn what therapeutic protocols are most effective, and practice self-care approaches for taking care of your deep and profound “muscle of the soul”; Doing so brings resolution. Please join me for my next Psoas Tele-class series beginning October 29th by phone or listen at your leisure via email to each weeks recorded lecture.
“Realizing how connected I am is nothing short of mind blowing. Suddenly I’m seeing the pains and symptoms over the years as expressions of a message I haven’t been listening to, all connected.”

New Biology, Quantum Physics, and Molecular Science, all recognize that human beings are a dynamic organic process. These scientific perspectives contend that it is not the individual parts, but the whole that provides for in-depth understanding. The human organism is not perceived as isolated or compartmentalized, but rather is studied as a living system. No longer an “it “ – an object – the human being is recognized as a dynamic ever-changing process, embedded in a field of relationships and information.

Please Join me for a Psoas Tele-class, Workshop or Retreats
My psoas does seem to be responding to my intention, interest, and gentle caring attention. After just a few weeks, the sharp pain with intense weakness of the leg seem to be much less frequent… And I am really experiencing a sense of deep rest and intense well-being that is much newer and very appreciated by my whole system. I feel like my psoas is teaching me how to find a new quality of peace and stillness. And after the major losses of the last year, it is quite a gift to feel more peace.
