Quick Tip: Want to make this season about care?

This time of year lands differently for different people. Whatever it brings up, the holiday season can offer a moment to re-evaluate how we’re taking care of ourselves and those around us. As a clinical team, we think about this a lot. We listen deeply, and shape treatment plans that fit our clients’ goals and needs. We do this because we believe in the power of therapeutic bodywork — not just as instrument for one-time relief, but as part of a process of recovery over time. With this in mind, and as the flurry of Black Friday approaches, we wanted to offer you something...

Quick Tip: Do you want your therapist to know all the latest techniques?

  At Psoas, what really makes us who we are, is who we hire. We find the best massage therapists out there and help them become still more extraordinary.

This week’s Deskinetics Quick Tip is an excellent stretch to target those pecs during a break from your desk or really any time. And since we know everyone is busy these days, we like that it doesn’t require...

Quick Tip: Want to ask a nutritionist all your questions?

When we take our important questions about nutrition to the internet, we often come back discouraged or armed with information that doesn’t account for our particular needs, characteristics, and goals. That’s why we’re inviting you to a free community workshop with the newest member of our clinical team: Certified Nutritionist and Natural Chef, Karyn Forsyth Duggan. On Wednesday, 2/28, Karyn will hold an open forum for all your burning nutritional questions – right here at Psoas.

Quick Tip: Is your psoas ready to run?

Are you running in either the Kaiser Permanente SF Half Marathon® or the Rattlesnake Ramble next month? If so, make sure to review two of our past quick tips on how to incorporate bodywork and stretching, before your race and after. And while you’re at it, check out this week’s quick tip: the Alternative AIS Psoas Stretch. Though we think our classic AIS Psoas Stretch is a great pre-run warm-up, it’s not for everyone. We’ve found that some clients have difficulty maintaining balance, and end up creating new patterns of tension elsewhere in the body. If that sounds...
