    Can you remember the feeling of sitting, standing, and walking before your groin or hip joint started to hurt? Can you remember feeling comfortable in your groin? I don't mean, "think about it"; I mean remember the feeling of it. If you can't remember the feeling, you've lost the "muscle memory" of that state. You may be surprised, after all of your therapy, to learn that to get comfortable, again, all you need to do is restore the muscle/movement memory of healthy psoas muscles.

    Do this program to regain easy, comfortable movement as your psoas muscles relax and come under your easy control. Groin pain, hip joint pain, and deep belly fade out and stay gone faster than by therapeutic methods that use stretching and/or manipulation. Walking normalizes and your comfort, when sitting, returns.

    Your psoas muscles are "core" walking and sitting muscles. When tight, they cause groin pain, a tight diaphragm and other symptoms.

    Tight psoas muscles shorten your stride, prevent you from standing up straight, lead to hip joint damage, and cause pain in the groin, pelvis, and deep in the belly. Common diagnoses are groin pull, iliopsoas bursitis, iliopsoas tendinitis, and torn labrum (hip joint damage).

    I developed this program to produce results equivalent to what I get in my clinical practice: a 99%+ success rate.

    Stretching, Strengthening, or Manipulation

    Overview

    See and hear the unique approach of this program.

    Obviously, tight psoas muscles cause a host of problems.

    Not so obviously, we can't free tight psoas muscles and make them work properly by stretching, massage or manipulation of any kind. Stretching doesn't work. The reason: our brain controls 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 to move.

    So, instead of stretching, strengthening or manipulating, we change the psoas muscles from their control center -- the brain -- where muscle/movement memory lives. We don't just "release" the psoas muscles. We integrate their behavior into the rest of the movement system for a better result that endures all activities. Change the control-pattern, change function. It works far more rapidly and comfortably that "body-mechanics" type approaches. It's much better (and much more comfortable) than approaches based on "body mechanics"; it's, "reprogramming" -- a more efficient approach than stretching, strengthening, or manipulation.

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

    How to Use This Program

    To do these exercises, you practice one exercise to the point of getting its result (seven practice sessions, or so), then switch to the next in the order given in the program.

    You'll feel improvements of ease in movement that accumulates with practice.

    Pain fades out as your ease of movement improves.

    Polishing/Further Integration Movements

    1. The Vertical Core

      • WRIGGLE AND TWIST
      • THE THREE WAY TWIST
      • THE HALO

      Integrates twisting movements of the trunk with the new psoas muscle integration pattern.

      An easy, comfortable saunter (leisurely walking pattern) involves balancing movements among abdomen (waist), thorax (ribs), and head (neck). We develop free turning movements at all three levels and then put them together.

    2. The Athletes' Prayer for Loose Calves

      The Athletes' Prayer for Loose Calves integrates body from feet to head in a standing position. It works better than a calf-stretch: feet meet the ground more squarely and securely with spring in the step that propels the knee forward, assisting the hip joint flexors and psoas, so that they stay free.

    I have had body pain for years. I can't remember a time when I was feeling this good...

    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 I was feeling this good...

    I started the exercises last Sunday... I can already feel a difference ... it is helping me loosen up.

    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!

    Laurie Adler (yes, you may quote me!)

    Profoundly helpful! I had attempted to heal a sprain in the groin/psoas region for over two months with basic stretches etc with no improvement. In less than a week my foot is straightening, my gait is stabilizing, I'm able to do other forms of exercise, and I'm pain free! YAY!!

    Hi Lawrence,

    Feedback so far on the Free Your Psoas program.

    Two interesting things to me were how deeply authentic and natural these movements feel. I've had several pleasant flashes of infant and toddler memories around the joy and exploration of movement.

    The other thing I notice is that it's a bit easy to overdo and although you say many times to go slowly, in several cases, I needed to slow down even further as I could tell my body had not coalesced/cooperated in these particular ways for a long time. : >

    Thank you for your contributions in this field!

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

    Hello,

    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

    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... An unintended result of this program was a realignment of my right foot.

    Hello Dr. Gold,

    [NOTE from Lawrence Gold: I am not a medical doctor, though some people assume that I am; I am a clinical somatic educator.]

    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.
