How to Do a Psoas Release

by Kalidasa on August 6, 2008

The iliacus and nearby musclesImage via WikipediaOne of the other main causes of lower back pain is a tight psoas muscle. It is the deepest muscle in the body. It attaches to the inside of the spine on the vertebrae of the lower back.

It comes together as it moves through the belly towards the hip points on either side. Then, it moves along the inside of the hip point, and around to the inside of the upper thigh.

Finding the psoas is difficult, but there’s a trick I show you in the video.

It is best to have someone do the release on you, but it is possible to do it yourself. You need to lie flat, if you bend the knee the psoas won’t be pulled long and you probably won’t find it.
