Reviews

I was extremely impressed with the knowledge and techniques taught in Peggy Lamb's Releasing the Iliopsoas class. During the course, we learned the appropriate assessment tests and protocols for releasing the iliopsoas and secondary thigh flexors. Peggy took the time to make sure each of us grasped the concepts and techniques. I've been able to successfully incorporate these techniques into my practice, and my clients are happy with the outcome. I highly recommend taking this class with Peggy.
