Glute Activation for Runners & The Honey Badger Race Update

We hope you’re ready, because racing season is coming! Our longtime partner, Marathon Matt, just announced their first LIVE race in 18 months. The Honey Badger Half/10K/5K will be returning to China Camp Park in Marin on Sunday, July 18th. There will be a virtual option as well, but if you’re itching for that feeling you only get from running a live race, China Camp Park is a beautiful way to get back into it.   To celebrate, this week’s Quick Tip is an exercise called the alternating glute bridge to help wake up a lazy glute, an issue many runners face. But, you...

A Farewell to Michael Talbot

A Farewell to Michael Talbot

We’re pulling this week’s Quick Tip from the archives: Michael Talbot’s gluteus medius stretch. He offers a different approach to stretching the side of the hip without rotation which can be more effective, and easier to do if rotation in your hip is limited. We’d like to give big love and a proper Psoas goodbye to Michael who has been an integral part of our therapist team and family since 2010, eventually developing his own technique called Motor Control Therapy. Michael will be staying closer to home in the North Bay and focusing on teaching MCT, hopefully...

Releasing the Front of the Neck

Releasing the Front of the Neck

This holiday season, while we’re all hunkering down, is a good time to get back into your self-care routine and get a jump start to your New Year’s Goals. In this week’s Quick Tip video, Senior Therapist, Jason Garcia, shows you how to use a lacrosse ball to work on the often-overlooked muscles in the front of the neck. Those muscles, the scalenes, tend to become chronically tight when our heads lean forward for too long; a position you might hold during long days in virtual meetings. You’ve got 3 more days to get bodywork at Psoas before the end of the year! Here are tips on...

We’re Open!

  Just a few days after we sent out our last update, the city gave us the green light to reopen (with limited capacity) to everyone, no prescription needed. And we are so excited!!!   We want to sincerely thank everyone for sticking with us through this. It hasn’t been easy, and we know that everyone’s been affected. It’s meant so much to us to have your support through it all.   Our Phase 1 therapists are David, Jason, KC, Sarah, Derek, and Mary. If your regular therapist isn’t in our Phase 1 team and you don’t want to wait for Phase 2, feel...

Loosen those shoulders!

Posted by on Jun 26, 2020 in Exercises, Health and Wellness, News

As you may have heard, Mayor Breed announced a few days ago that the city might allow for Massage/Bodywork to start as early as June 29th, however yesterday she made the call to delay that as case reports have spiked. It’s a reminder to us of how important our commitment is to ensure everyone’s safety when we reopen. We’re sticking with our timeline to begin bodywork again around August 13th (with approval from the City and State, of course), and we’ll be using the extra time to finish testing some final products, developing protocols, and implementing some clinic upgrades. We...

Looking Towards August

We are recalibrating once again! Our local government has pushed back the massage + bodywork industry to reopen in mid-August. If you have a session before Thursday, August 13th, we’ve gone ahead and canceled it for now. Once the schedule becomes more clear, we’ll reach out to reschedule your next appointment. In the meantime, we’ve still got virtual and chiropractic support, and also limited hours with our Intake Specialists available. Any questions? Please reach out – we’re here for you! THANK YOU for your heartfelt and thoughtful responses to our last newsletter. We hear that...
