An Easier, Seemingly Miraculous Way to Free Your Own Psoas Muscles

Hanna Somatics Gold | Lawrence Gold, certified Hanna somatic educator

Get to a new, better "normal" without the pain of stretching or massage -- for about the cost of one therapeutic massage.

Low back pain or unequal leg length are symptoms of a different problem. Prepare with The Cat Stretch program
, first -- or call for a consultation.


This program will make the all-important difference for you if you have tight psoas muscles, groin pain, and if therapy hasn't done it for you; if psoas stretches only make the problem worse or don't work.

You'll be guided, in clear steps, through somatic education exercises that relax you right then and there, bringing comfort and ease to movement and better core integration. You will feel looser, longer and lighter through the legs and hips, be able to stand up straighter, feel more balanced and move more easily and smoothly.

These exercises fit together the way the body fits together, like perfectly-fitting pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. They are like a key and your stuck movement pattern, like the lock the key opens.

PREVIEW | You can get started for free (two free exercise lessons) or just buy the program, now.

    The Five-Pointed Star

    This program is a "keystone" -- meaning that with it, you put yourself together from core to periphery in a series of intricate and elegant exercises that nearly instantly magnify your strength, free your flexibility, and enhance any somatic education exercise or activity done before or after.

    additional effect: emotionally calming and centering. Those who meditate after a session of The Five-Pointed Star notice an enhanced capacity to witness mind, emotions, and body from a neutral, centered space.

    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...

    Re: update: Hanna Somatics Gold -- Get Free from That 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!

    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 gluteals 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 gluteals on both sides, sacrum, and psoas were quite sore, so I know something changed.

    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.

    Hi, Ive been donig 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

    Hello Dr. Gold,

    [NOTE from Lawrence Gold: I am not a medical doctor, but a somatic educator. These feedback messages are presented as received, including typographical errors.]

    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.
