The Psoas Muscle Health

I just started reading "The Psoas Book" by Liz Koch and I am learning so much.  I remember in massage school learning about this muscle and learning to identify its locations, but I there is so much I did not know about this muscle.

Here is one quote from the book that says so much.

As a psoatic shelf, the psoas muscle provides support for the organs and viscera.  the health, length and vitality of the psoas muscle affects organ functioning.  Whether or not there is room within the pelvic bowel for the organs to rest comfortably and function normally is determined by the length and tone of the psoas muscle. (page 27)

As you can see from this quote in the book, the psoas muscle does a tremendous amount.  There are many other functions as well, but I'll let you read the book to discover them.  If we all focused on helping our psoas muscle become healthy, I have a feeling many health conditions could be lessened.  Don't take my word for it, read the book.
