The Amazing Iliopsoas

I just got back from teaching my Releasing the Iliopsoas seminar in the northwest. A wise and wonderful midwife/massage therapist in Spokane told me two facts about the iliopsoas that I did not know:

1. It’s the first muscle that forms in the human fetus

2. When a woman is giving birth the iliopsoas helps to push the baby out.

I love the elegance of that!
