Psoas Release – 4 Ways

The Psoas muscle is a major contributor to low back pain and may have an influence in scoliosis of the spine.

We look at the anatomy of the Psoas, where it is located and how it can contribute to low back pain. We will address four different approaches to release the Psoas in a non-invasive and pain free way. The techniques we use are active and passive isolated stretching and resistance through range of motion release with the client in prone, side lying and supine positions.

What students need to bring:

  • Massage table
  • Sheet set with face cradle cover
  • Notepad and pen for note taking
  • Pillow or side-lying bolster, wear comfortable clothing

This class provides 6 hours of NCBTMB and Texas approved CE’s.

Students are welcome to register for this class.


Instructor: Ruth Bucher

Ruth Bucher was born and raised in Switzerland. A first visit to the USA as an exchange student left her with the dream of coming back. In 1991 she realized this dream and came to Texas. She has been a naturalized U.S. citizen since 2004.

The desire for a career change led Ruth to the massage therapy profession, and in May 1995, she graduated from Hands-on Therapy School of Massage in Garland, TX.

In 1997 she was first introduced to the Myofascial Therapy presented in this class. She was impressed with the results and versatility of this technique and has used it ever since, adding her own modifications with years of experience.

Ruth’s ultimate goal as a massage therapist and bodywork practitioner is to assist her clients in achieving optimal health, including relief from stress and pain by natural means, and to provide her clients with the best possible care.
