Throughout your life, your body constantly creates tension in response to stress; physical, chemical, emotional or mental. This tension is entirely appropriate because it helps you rise to meet life's challenges. However, when your body holds on to this tension it becomes restrictive and no longer appropriate.
These restrictions impact your life and well-being. When your body is expending energy on holding tension, other processes are diminished; much like turning down a dimmer switch, the capacity of your internal organs, your immune system and your brain's pathways are reduced. This limits your ability to feel vital, to tune into your intuition, creativity, needs and internal rhythms. Long held tension patterns can also result in symptoms as diverse as anxiety, depression, lack of energy, poor sleep, poor digestion, headaches, and back pain. Symptoms are simply your body's way to alert you that reassessment and change are necessary.
