When there has been injury or trauma, the body tends to immobilise the area to protect it from further movement and pain. When the holding pattern becomes habituated, muscles can remain chronically tense even after the initial cause of the pain has disappeared. Body alignment techniques are done gently on and off the body, to stimulate gentle, effective release of the holding pattern, thus allowing a person who has suffered with chronic pain over a prolonged period to get immediate relief.
