The importance of the psoas for our health, vitality and emotional well-being.

The psoas is the deepest and most stabilizing muscle in the human body, influencing our structural balance, range of motion, joint mobility and the functioning of the abdominal organs.

It is the only muscle that connects the spine to the legs, the one responsible for keeping us upright and the one that allows us to raise our legs to walk.

A healthy psoas stabilizes the spine and provides support to the trunk, while also forming good support for the abdominal organs.

Some recent studies also take into consideration the psoas, a perceptual organ composed of bio-intelligent tissue that literally embodies our deepest desire to survive and thrive. That is, it is the primary messenger of the central nervous system, which is why it is also considered a spokesperson for emotions. This is because the psoas is connected to the diaphragm through connective tissue or fascia, which is why it is affected by both breathing and reflex fear.


A hectic lifestyle and stress generate adrenaline that chronically strains the psoas, preparing it to run, take action or contract to protect itself.

If we constantly keep the psoas under tension due to stress, over time it will begin to shorten and stiffen. This will make our posture and the functions of the organs located in the abdomen difficult, causing back pain, sciatica, disc problems, hip degeneration, painful periods or digestive problems.

On the other hand, a tight psoas sends tension signals to the nervous system, interferes with the movement of fluids and affects diaphragmatic breathing. In fact, the psoas is so intimately involved in basic physical and emotional reactions that, when chronically stressed, it sends the body constant danger signals, which can lead to exhaustion of the adrenal glands and immune system.

This situation is exacerbated by the way we sit or the postures of our daily habits, which reduce our natural movements and further constrict the muscles.

A released psoas allows the front of the thighs to be much longer and allows the legs and pelvis to move more fluidly and independently. It improves the position of the spine and the entire torso, resulting in an impact on improving the functions of the abdominal organs, breathing and heart.


When we cultivate the health of our psoas, our vital energies are revived and we reconnect with our creative potential.

In some Eastern philosophies the psoas is known as the “soul muscle”, one of the main energy centers of the body.

The more flexible and strong the psoas is, the more our vital energy can flow through the bones, muscles and joints.

The psoas would be like an energy channeling organ, a nucleus that connects us to the earth, allowing us to create a firm and balanced support from the center of our pelvis.

In this way the spinal column lengthens and all our vitality can flow through it.

The kidney rests on it, which is why it is important for “escape”, linked to fear, to learning.

Keeping it relaxed, like the iliacus muscle, which continues it, will allow all the toxins to release more easily, since our viscera also rely on their elimination.

We can talk endlessly about this muscle.
