Your body is like a pulley system. One muscle pulls, the other pulls. When one is held for a particular position for too long, there is compensation.
Tension can apply to emotions, the mind and the body. Do you have unresolved trauma? When unresolved, it breaks the body down in many ways including the immune system, athletic performance etc.
