Too much unresolved stress in our lives can cause constant muscular tension. This tension or tightness reduces the flow of blood and oxygen to the muscle and organs and also restricts nerve and lymph supply. Tension creates a tendency for a build up of toxins in the body and reduces the flow of life force (Chi). Tension can lead to symptomatic feelings of fatigue, heaviness, aches and pains, tightness or muscles and stiffness. Muscular stress can increase the likelihood of strains and injuries. Muscular stress also distorts the skeletal structure which further compounds existing problems and creates new ones.
Remember the old saying “Take care of your body. It’s the only one you got!”
