This protocol treats the iliopsoas through NeuroMuscular Therapy (NMT). This routine should be proceeded by pelvic balancing and release of the superficial abdominal muscles. Abdominal pelvic balancing and other approaches are discussed in the self-care and therapist notes.
NOTE: This protocol is for mindful review by an experienced therapist and is not intended to be used for learning without hands-on training from a professional instructor. One should not attempt this without the necessary expertise to understand contraindications. It is important to use proper technique so that the treatment is safe and effective.
This routine is from The WorkBook of Classical Neuromuscular Therapy, which was created at the ASHA School of Massage and used to train thousands of therapists for more than 15 years.
These routines are intended for mindful review by Bodywork Professionals and are not appropriate as self-care for non-professionals. Self-injury could occur.
This site is undergoing changes. Starting in early 2020, we began changing the format of the posts to include more extensive self-care, illustrations, therapist notes, anatomy, and protocols. We’d love your feedback. We are adding posts and converting the old posts as quickly as time permits.
Tony Preston has a practice in Atlanta, Georgia where he sees clients. He has written and taught about anatomy, trigger points, and cranial therapies since the mid-90s.
*This site is undergoing major changes. We are reformatting and expanding the posts to make it easier to read, more accessible, and
to include more patterns with better self-care. In the meanwhile, there will be inconsistency in formatting, content, and readability until we get the old posts updated. Please excuse our mess.
