This program extinguishes psoas muscle groin pain
and removes any limit on activities you can do safely.
It works by retraining muscle/movement memory,
a far faster, more lasting approach than stretching.

and why changing muscle/movement memory works faster than

Extraordinarily Effective ~~ Extraordinarily Efficient


You've been through therapy that may have involved stretching, strengthening, and/or manipulation and you've found that the results were partial and temporary. Pain and restriction of movement may have returned in days or hours. So you've looked for another solution to the pain and restricted movement.

This program takes an entirely different approach from stretching, strengthening, or manipulation. You retrain muscle/movement memory. That frees your psoas muscles and removes the cause of the pain.

The new technique used in this program, pandiculation, removes the cause of psoas muscle groin pain -- uncontrollable tension of your psoas muscles -- far more effectively than stretching and far faster. You'll feel pain start to fade and movement start to improve with the first or second practice session. Groin pain, hip joint pain, and deep belly pain fade out and stay gone. Walking stride increases naturally. Pandiculation is a superior substitute for stretching. It's what you've been hoping for, from therapy. I back these words with a lifetime satisfaction guarantee.

T ight psoas muscles lead to hip joint damage (torn labrum -- the lip at the rim of the hip joint) . Common diagnoses are groin pull, iliopsoas bursitis, iliopsoas tendinitis, iliopsoas syndrome.

I developed these exercises, at first, for myself. Each exercise produces specific changes so that the exercises fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. The program, Free Your Psoas produces results equivalent to the clinical techniques I use in my practice.

Symptoms of Psoas Trouble

  • groin pain

  • restriction moving the thigh backward

  • deep pelvic pain, on the tight side

  • deep "bellyache"

Why retrain your muscles instead of stretching them?

Retraining works better than stretching. The reason: our brains control our muscles -- their tension, coordination, and movement; muscles have no memory of their own. The applicable term is "muscle/movement memory." Stretch any muscle and brain conditioning makes it prone to return to its habitually tight state soon after you start moving, again. Retrain muscle/movement memory, you get a lasting change.

So, instead of stretching, strengthening or manipulating, we reprogram muscular control. This process is like a software upgrade to eliminate "bugs" in your "movement programming". You do it with a series of pandiculations (as explained, above, in the video).

The result is more than "release"; it's release and integration. That means the change is thorough and lasting.

That's why this approach works far more rapidly and comfortably than "body-mechanics" type approaches such as stretching or therapeutic manipulations and why it brings lasting relief.

Old muscle/movement memory, OFF. New muscle/movement memory, ON.

I can already feel a difference ...

Re: update: Hanna Somatics Gold -- Free Yourself from Back Pain AND Free your Psoas

Lawrence: I started the exercises last Sunday, and am ready to go onto to the second one, Slide and Turn. My massage therapist brought this muscle to my attention, and your wesbite came up in relation to the psoas (memebers of my family have never heard of this muscle!)

I can already feel a difference, and look forward to my MT being able to feel a difference as well. I'm working with this in relation to spasming rectal and sphincter muscles (proctalgia fugax) and it is helping me loosen up. Thank you so much!

Who is This Program For?

This program is for people with psoas pain who do not have symptoms of sacro-iliac ("S-I") joint dysfunction. I list the symptoms for that condition, here. (This "purchase window" stays open when you visit the other page.)

With either program, Free Your Psoas or Comforting Your S-I Joints, you may get started, for free.

Comforting Your S-I Joints can substitute for Free Your Psoas -- but not vice versa. Purchasers have "exchange privileges".

After the first lesson I could feel a difference, later on I felt a muscle in my groin/stomach area release, and my right hip relax to a large degree.

I have had body pain for years. The most agitated area seemed to be my lower back and right hip. My right hip area was basically drawn up and tight. I've tried different things over the years (going to a chiropractor more often than anything). I would get adjusted, feel better and then start the road to decline on as soon as the second or third day after adjustment. I ordered a DVD exercise from this site for the hip area. photo of Jeanie TillmanAfter the first lesson I could feel a difference, later on I felt a muscle in my groin/stomach area release, and my right hip relax to a large degree. After each lesson, I felt better and better. The greatest thing I noticed is that, instead of feeling better and then my body starting to decline, my body did not start the decline phase. Not everything is perfect yet with me, but the areas that released stayed that way. I even feel a difference in other areas of my body like my back, neck, legs. I still want to get more lessons/DVD from the Lawrence Gold site for my back and neck. The lessons to take a bit of trial and error to understand the moves. It can be frustrating, but stick with it because it will be worth it when you're feeling better. I can't remember a time when my was feeling this good...

I have studied alot of anatomy and methodology for helping myself. And, I have found alot of misinformation and snake oil. Your video was effective.

I found your youtube video "Free Your Psoas: Slide & Turn, INTRO - Psoas Muscle Pain Self-Relief" amazingly effective. A little backgroud: I have had tightness and pain for many years (I'm 35) for which I have taken personal responsibility to alieviate through self awarness and excercise. Thus I was brought to your video. I grew up with tension in my house, and have found myself stuck in "fight or flight" ever since.

Upon doing this simple exercise, my normally painful and tight right glutes and psoas were instantly more mobile. I have tried for 20 years to get that effect to no avail. I then took a 3 hour walk around Tokyo (where I live currently) and I immediately noticed that I walked with a more upright posture. My torso was not bent forward, but erect, and my hips stayed forward throughout my stride. The next morning, my glutes on both sides, sacrum, and psoas were quite sore, so I know something changed.

Hi, Ive been doing the psoas exercises and my back is soooooooo much improved. Thanks. My biking and hiking is much better, and I don't get back aches or pinches anymore.

Yesterday and today I completed a few more of the psoas exercises, which opened me up considerably. I am impressed. The halo this afternoon was a near euphoric release.

Thanks, Thomas

... it really has done wonders. It has really opened up the groin muscles and is way more effective than the stretching I was doing months ago.

Hello Dr. Gold,

photo of Andrew Seymour I didnt anticipate such a long email, please just respond whenever you have the time. I have been working with your "Freeing the Psoas" program for about 6 weeks now and have to tell you it really has done wonders. It has really opened up the groin muscles and is way more effective than the stretching I was doing months ago. The help with yoga and pilates was marginal compared to this.

An unintended result of this program was a realignment of my right foot. 10 years ago I almost shattered my right kneecap as a result of a snowboarding injury. It has always splayed far to the right (likely contributing to the achilles tendinitis on my right foot). It is easy to spot in photos. Without being conscious of it, it has significantly realigned to its natural straight position (although it still feels a bit "unnatural" and I am having to remind myself this is how I should walk. So I wanted to say thanks and this program is well suited for my needs.
