My referral page provides a wide range of health, movement, and somatic professionals who have completed a minimum of 42 hours of Psoas education and understand how to work with the Psoas without engaging in invasive or manipulative techniques. This list includes professionals who are certified in a variety of specific fields governed by a board in his or her own profession. Please be sure the individual practitioner is currently licensed as well as addresses any questions or concerns you may have before selecting to work with them. If you have any feedback you wish to share with me, please feel  welcomed to contact me.

Disclaimer: This list is in no way a substitute for seeking and/or obtaining qualified medical attention. If you have a medical condition please contact your primary care physician. Use this list solely to further your personal wellness strategies. I take no responsibility and do not guarantee your experience working with any of the following individuals. I have not approved their work with the psoas or the quality of their professional expertise. Although I have worked with each person (and personally like each one!), I do not have the ability or authority to recommend and/or judge the individual’s level of qualifications in his or her particular profession. Each individual listed below is also unique in his or her approach and style of working. By using this referral list you accept full responsibility and recognize that you, your heirs, or legal representatives forever release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue Liz Koch or Core Awareness workshops should you for any reason incur an injury (physical, emotional, or in any form whatsoever) caused by the referral person’s negligence and/or any other acts caused by the individuals on this referral list.

Each * next to the person’s name indicates a return to the Professional Application Course to deepen their personal experience and stay current with new updates on my approach to the complex Psoas.

Each ! represents completing the Advanced Practitioners Training
