NAT Certification Course - The Vital Psoas (2 CEU's)
Taking a uniquely holistic approach, this course text explores how the Psoas affects the health of the body, mind, and spirit:
Physically, as the only muscle that connects the upper and lower body
Emotionally, as a messenger to and from the brain and a vessel of deeply rooted feelings
Spiritually, as an integrator within the root of the lower chakras, subtly affecting the flow of life energy throughout the body
Understanding and working with the Psoas can help
- Alleviate lower back pain
- Strengthen the core
- Correct posture
- Reduce trauma
- Open energy channels
Learning to work with Psoas
The psoas is the only muscle in the human organism that connects the upper body to the lower body, and its importance extends to the nerve complex and energy systems.
Located deep within the anterior hip joint and lower spine, the psoas is critical for optimal postural alignment, movement, and overall well being.
As modern-day populations grow more sedentary, psoas-related lower back and hip pain, and the ailment of "sitting too much," are on the rise. Even the most active of athletes can suffer from psoas imbalance and pain.
In this new post grad/CE course for 2023, Dr Beth Wagner PT demonstrates how to keep the muscle in balance through specific exercises designed to strengthen and utilize this amazing muscle, and presents its vital role in the emotional and spiritual state of the human being.
