Quick Tip: Does your lower body need some care this season?

Posted by on Dec 12, 2018 in Bodywork Techniques, Exercises, Gifts, Health and Wellness, Stretches, Workshop

At Psoas, we’ve become known for supporting your goals with bodywork. And for always seeking out new tools to educate and support you, in and outside of your sessions. For our many athletic clients, understanding the complex systems at play when we run — or jump, kick, dance, and walk — is one crucial tool. Because this understanding is powerful. It can help you prevent injury and make huge strides towards your performance goals — whether you’re working up to a mile a day, or preparing for the Olympic trials.

That’s why we’ve designed something special, a workshop built for the many clients who come to Psoas to optimize the function of their lower bodies. It’s our way of sending you into the new year with the tools you need to move with more ease and power:

Stretch. Strengthen. Run.
