When you let go of physical tension you help free yourself from the accumulation of mental stress in your body. Sometimes it's not until we feel great amounts of physical pain that we start to pay attention to what our bodies are telling us. Listen to your body so you're able to identify where your tension resides. Use your breath as a tool for releasing physical tightness and for letting the healing happen. Learning to release your physical tension will give you a greater sense of calm and well-being.
