Hip Flexor/Quadriceps Release Technique

The muscles of the hip flexors often become very tight and over active over time. This can be caused from a number of movement patterns that can create improper mechanics over time. One common dysfunction is created from sitting for long extended periods of time, say working at your computer desk all day. Over time the hip flexors become tightened and short which can create instability in the pelvis. When the hip flexors become tight, the lower abdominals and glute structures are compromised.


Diaphragm Release Technique

The diaphragm muscle is often pushed up superiorly through pregnancy and weight gain and can also cause dysfunction within stabilizing the spine. It can often lead to problems taking a full inhalation and exhalation in natural breath. This creates many dysfunctions between the relationship of intra abdominal pressure and intra thoracic pressure.
