Back and Hips

TIGHT Hips Assessment

 In this video, Coach Zach shows you a very simple method to discovering if your hips or quads are tight and holding you back from feeling and moving at your best.

Your hips are the bridge between your upper body and lower body. They are at the center of your body's movement. The psoas is the only muscle in the human body connecting the upper body to the lower body.

A functioning psoas muscle creates a neutral pelvic alignment, stabilizes the hips, supports the lower spine and abdomen, supports the organs in the pelvic and abdominal cavity and gives you greater mobility and core strength.

Our hip flexors are the engine through which our body moves. They control balance, our ability to sit, stand, twist, reach, bend, walk and step. Everything goes through the hips. When our hip flexors tighten it causes a lot of problems in ordinarily healthy and active people, like us.

Try a little myofascial release for your thighs!

Did you know that your fascia (fascial system) is one of the most important systems in the body.

But what is it, why should we care and why do we need to know about it?

In short, the fascia is collectively four types of connective tissue made up of densely packed protein fibers, which weaves throughout the entire body, and it binds and supports your muscles, bones and even your organs. The fascia is connective tissue that holds us together, it is also a fluid system like blood and it’s a communication system like the nervous system so it's pretty complex.

The fascia is one of the most important systems of the body because it affects all of us. From shin splints and growing pains as a kid, to tension headaches in our 20s, to cellulite in our 30s to tendonitis in our 40s to back pain in our 50s to wrinkles and turkey necks in our 60s and so on.

Decrease Muscle Tension


Many people suffer with Muscle Tension. Muscle tension is a condition that causes anxiety and stress on your muscles making it very painful. With some cases, it could affect your posture, cause arthritis or spinal injuries.


Massage therapy can help with muscle tension by reducing pressure applied on joints and reduces spasms. Massage therapy could possibly be the best remedy while confronting muscular tension.


Your massage therapist will work with you on which massage would best suite your needs. The best type of massage for relieving muscle tension is preferred to be deep tissue or Swedish. Your therapist may also work with you on breathing exercises to help reduce the stress and tension. At The Root of Wellness, we can understand and relate to tension building up in your neck and back. Once your neck or back begins to ache the muscles in your neck and back become very tense.


When you start to hunch forward, your spine becomes out of alignment. When you slouch, you’re ruining your posture; your muscles have to work harder, and can apply pressure internal organs. Massage can help with tense muscle by relaxing and loosening the muscles in your neck, lower and upper back through massage.
