In this video, I would like to show you how to treat psoas muscle. Psoas is located very deep inside of belly. Very important core muscle. You need to be very careful because of location. I usually work 3 points. Upper, middle, and lower part. Will you point out where your naval is? This is a point I work. If I go directly from ab, it is hard to get in. You find edge of rectus abdominis, You insert from edge of rectus abdominis. If you do this, you can’t find it. It is like you sink toward center of belly. But there are organs in front of psoas. If you go quickly, your clients don’t like it. Please go very slowly It is like you go in front of vertebrae. Deep inside. If you are not sure where it is, you ask client to bend knee, but very slowly. If you don’t tell him to go slowly, it is not good for psoas. If he goes slowly, I feel contraction of psoas. Tip for bending knee is: foot stays on table. client pulls foot on table. Psoas is located very deep place. You can’t dig or move fingers very much. Instead, you ask client to move knee. Other side. So this case, psoas is contracting and relaxing itself. My fingers are fixed. His leg movement is doing work. Back slowly. This is part one. Edge of rectus, and go deep inside. Second part. Here is ASIS. Part of pelvis. I go from here. Psoas is running like this. Same thing. You sink very slowly. There is ligament called inguinal ligament. You want to avoid working on inguinal ligament area. It is very sensitive. Often herniated intestine happens here. Again, go slowly. Same thing. When you feel psoas, let client to bend knee. You also can’t dig here, so let client move leg. Or other side. Gradually, you feel psoas is getting softer. It is a sign it is working. Stretch out. You went deep slowly, and you come out slowly as well. If you come up very quickly, client will feel discomfort. Third point, lesser trochanter. Here is ASIS. Usually, lesser trochanter is very deep. You abduct hip about 30 degree. And external rotation. When you abduct and externally rotate, lesser trochanter appears below AISI. If you still can’t find it, find femoral artery. Go laterally from femoral artery, there is lesser trochanter. In his case, lesser trochanter is almost perpendicular to ASIS. Little bit diagonal. It is not very deep place here. But you can do same thing. You can move fingers, like scratching tissue. But there are lot of artery and nerves. So better not to go strong. Imagine you release small point. Let’s call recap. Naval line, edge of abs, go deep. Level of ASIS, and go like this. Caution: don’t work on inguinal ligament. Lesser trochanter. It appears when you abduct 30 degrees, and externally rotate Also it is lateral to femoral artery. This is how I work on psoas. If you liked the video, please Like and subscribe.
