Psoas Relief with the Buttafly Technique

The psoas has been described as “one of the most influential and enigmatic muscular structures in the human body.”

It is the only muscle that directly links the spine with our lower limbs, and it’s the only muscle I know of that has two books written solely about it… One author describes it as “very complicated”, which kind of says it all!

 

Functional Anatomy

In this session, we will explore:

  • Key roles of the psoas muscle in posture and movement;
  • It’s role in “gut feelings”;
  • How the psoas is affected by stress.

 

“Psoas Syndrome”

The psoas muscle can cause pain in your hips, lower back, butt and groin. Symptoms can often be related to iliopsoas bursitis, as well as a variety of other musculoskeletal disorders. Many people have chronic symptoms that respond poorly to conventional treatments that tend to focus on stretching and “releasing” the psoas.

 

The Buttafly Technique for Psoas Relief

The Buttafly Technique has been demonstrated to provide immediate relief for many sufferers of psoas pain. It is also an effective post-exercise release for cyclists. Come and find out how it can help you and what you can do to help prevent the recurrence of symptoms.

 

What you will need

  • A Standard Buttafly if you want to be able to do the practical. Please note that the Flat Buttafly or the Tall are NOT suitable for the Buttafly Technique
  • A yoga belt/dressing gown belt
  • A wide scarf long enough to tie around your waist
  • 3 cushions
  • 2 pillows
