How to Find It
1. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground.
2. Place your fingertips about one inch below your belly button and about two inches to either side.
3. Gently burrow you fingertips into your abdomen, wiggling to work your way around.
4. Lift your corresponding thigh upwards a couple of inches. You should feel a long, rope -like muscle tense up deep inside. That’s your psoas.
5. You can strum it or lightly palpate it to give it a little relief. Warning, this can be an uncomfortable experience if the muscle is tight or you don’t get massages often. Seek out the skills of a good masseuse to help you out in locating your psoas.
