Trauma and the Psoas Muscle
The Mysterious Psoas Muscle
The deep rooted Psoas Muscle, can hold traumatic experiences on a cellular level. Trauma releasing exercises (TRE) or neurogenic tremoring can release trauma responses that have been locked there for years. So there’s quite a lot of mystery around the amazing psoas muscle. For good reason, the psoas (so-as) is the primary muscle that connects the body with the legs, which is a pretty big deal. The health of the psoas muscle affects our mobility, self esteem, sense of inner freedom and bodily comfort. It moves through the body, from the spine to the front of the hips, yep right through that deep vulnerable part of our body, the pelvis. Thus the psoas muscle is also known as our fight, flight and freeze muscle. So let’s explore this amazing part of our body in relation to healing from trauma and experiencing inner freedom.
