True story – I was teaching my Releasing the Iliopsoas seminar several years ago in Baltimore. An occupational therapist approached me at lunch and told me the following story. Several years ago she had severely injured her low back during a transfer of a patient. She had back surgery, which didn’t help much. She could not sit for more than five minutes for over two years.
For over two years she went from doctor to doctor searching for an answer to her chronic pain. Finally, in desperation, she went to a massage therapist, who immediately zeroed in on her iliopsoas. That night she was able to have dinner with her family for the first time in two years! She went on to get her massage license and still is a practicing OT.
