Many people carry tension in their hips and pelvic floor, and this can lead to pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction when left unchecked. This easy and gentle psoas release pose requires about 15 minutes of time to simply rest and unwind. Follow up with the iliacus trigger point release I demonstrate toward the end of the video! Thanks to Nourishing Therapies for inspiring this “constructive rest” simple psoas release!

holy smokes; very great.
Thanks to your advice after a good year or so journey through various consultants I have finally seen a Women’s Health physio. She was so helpful I’m now just starting her exercises but I can draw even more from you. There’s so much to take in 🙂. Who knew 30 years ago that childbirth would leave us with so many weaknesses down the line. I would encourage people to see a physio. No giving up 💪🙏🏻🇬🇧
What about when you’re in your 3rd trimester of pregnancy? Is laying on your back like this safe?
Thank you soo much for sharing your journey with pelvic pain. I relate to all of the sensations you've felt on your right side. I am gifting myself with this pelvic tension release everyday for 30 days! The misalignment and tension in my hips have been a hgue source of frustration for me bc it really affects the way I move through space (feels so unnatural). I believe I can heal 😉
This worked for me!! I suffer from constant lower back, hip, groin, and referred pain down my left leg (even though I am right dominant). I have tried so many stretches, yoga poses, and exercises to relieve these issues. But this psoas release actually brought relief. I was experiencing quite a bit of lower back pain when I started the release, and I could feel the pain dissipate as the minutes went by. And the massage for the iliacus got a tender spot I didn't even know was there. When I was done and walked around I felt "level." My pelvic area was relaxed. I didn't realize how tense and unbalanced I was before. Thank you so much, Dr. Bri! I will be doing this daily.
I really wanted this to help, but didn’t find it released my pelvic muscles. Oh well, worth a try.
I've been at the brink of tears all week dealing with a flare of chronic pelvic and bladder pain. My urogynecologist recommended your channel, and so today I followed along with this video and finally was able to feel some release and relief my stressed-out psoas and pelvic floor. Thank you for talking through this video, sharing your story, and for sharing how to heal our bodies.
