Releasing the Iliopsoas

Posted by on Jul 9, 2020 in Exercises, Muscle Release

This week we’re digging into the iliopsoas. This composite muscle links your legs and back together, and it can become chronically tightened when we sit for prolonged periods of time. When it does, the pelvis is pulled into a more forward-rotated position, often leading to back pain and tension throughout the core.

We’ve asked senior deep tissue therapist Jason Garcia what we can do about it. In this week’s Quick Tip Video, Jason will show us how we can use a posture ball to give some attention to these often-ignored muscles. Give it a try during your next stretching routine and, if you’d like to learn more self-care from Jason, consider trying out a virtual session!
