Psoas Mineral Medicine

I have been playing a little game called “Fierce Love”. It’s about being a stand for what I believe in. My family. My work. My tribe. Humanity. Yet this little game (which was really a dress rehearsal for a much bigger game I have in mind) has revealed so much about my heart. You see, the game was initially about taking a stand for others. It’s been my thing. I am a caretaker. In the end though, it became a game of daring. To love myself.

ALL the way.

And some unexpected byproducts – like a very happy Psoas and some massive shifts – were birthed through Fierce Love.

I am still reeling.

It officially ‘ended’ on the weekend as I lushed around in the sweltering heat, in the Artesian Mineral pools at Moree (out West) with my parents for a few days… Here’s what I learnt.

Happy Psoas = Happy Nervous System
Soaking, playing, floating and unravelling in these healing waters for 3 hours+ a day meant my Psoas was sooooo very happy! I got to know my fluid-body on a whole new level. Super-Powers Activate!

Fluid-body activation = happy Psoas = happy (parasympathetic) nervous system = stable pelvis = pain free body = profound sleep/rest = happy belly = sublime clarity and communication and relating… and on it goes…

It’s all so connected.
You did know that, right?


So even though I drove for 14 hours within 72 hours – which BTW is the biggest trigger for Psoas (sitting + driving) – my whole system was purring. It didn’t add up.

Ordinarily I’d be down on the floor tending to my Psoas and pelvis many times a day after a long drive. Add to that all that I have been holding and exploring – BIG heartbreaking family stuff, neurological testing for my childhood head injuries (so lots of old trauma bubbling up), stretching myself waaaaaay outa my comfort zone with building the online course, massive healing of old, old wounds and clear endings and new beginnings in the relational field just to name a few (Phew!). I was really surprised to not need to get down and adjust, release or correct anything Psoas or pelvic for days!!!

My curiosity had piqued.

I found myself reminiscing about my 5 days at the Peninsula Hot Springs a few years ago with Liz Koch. I had a similar experience.

I was onto something.


I gotta say – that my body went into an obvious ‘withdrawal’ process once I got home. It was interesting to witness. Like my Psoas was protesting. Quite literally. Needless to say, I am now researching various Minerals to recreate the perfect home-mineral-bath-recipe.

What can I say? I’m just not willing to move to Moree…

So heres a few pics of my Mineral Pool play (and my Mum’s awesome dive!):



I am a long-time user of epsom and Himalayan salts in my bath water – but now my inner science-nerd is excited to understand why I felt sooooo good in those waters. Here’s what I have found:


Therapeutic benefits of bathing in mineral spring water:

  • Chlorides are beneficial for rheumatic conditions, arthritis, central nervous system conditions and post traumatic stress disorders;
  • Magnesium combats stress, reduces inflammation, calms the nervous system, relaxes muscles and promotes healthy skin;
  • Potassium improves cellular repair, energises the body, normalises heart rhythms, improves oxidation and regulates the electrical processes of muscles and the nervous system;
  • Sodium stimulates the body’s lymphatic system;
  • Calcium (Bentonite Clay) draws out toxicity, protects the body against harmful radiation, and strengthens the immune system;
  • Bromides aid with the natural repair of the body, relax and ease muscular aches and pains and act as a natural antibiotic;
  • Bicarbonate’s sodium content and alkalinity give the bathwater a silky feel and aid in detoxification;
  • Boron builds muscle mass, increases brain activity, strengthens bones and improves metabolic function.


A few tips for making the perfect mineral bath at home:

  • Keep the water close to body temperature (38.5) for maximum absorption. If you soak really hot – your body won’t absorb it;
  • Buy quality ingredients and make your own combos. Mix it up;
  • Try a bath a day for a week and see how you feel;
  • Don’t have ‘time’ to bath that much? Listen to an audiobook, meditate, put on some Tibetan singing bowls (Deuter) or Atmospheric music (Eno) real loud – and go where you ain’t never been before;
  • Dead Sea Salts are a must. The Dead Sea has the highest concentration of many of these minerals;
  • Add herbs, essential oils or high grade clay to infuse your bath with specific and delicious healing powers;
  • Don’t have a bath at home? Use a friends. You may just spark a revolution;
  • Let yourself have it, darling. Your whole system – especially your Psoas – will love you for it.


Doesn’t your Psoas just swooooon reading that?

My invitation to you is to try it. See if you can love yourself fiercely. See what shows up. In your psoas. Your nervous system. Your creativity. Your body. Your relationships….

Yeah! Let’s get what we need and do this! Are you with me?


I’d love you to comment below! Tell me about your mineral bath plans or experiences – either at home or in the natural wonders of the world.
Oh, and any recipe ideas would be soooooo appreciated!

Until next time,
Loving you fiercely,

All the way.
