TIGHT TISSUE SYNDROME

A relatively small number of clients have what may be called tight fascia. The superficial layers of tissues seem tight or compressed to their bones8. Their bodies look almost as though they are shrink-wrapped. They appear wiry, though not necessarily excessively thin. This syndrome is important because they share a number of other characteristics discussed below.
Those with tight tissue syndrome are often intelligent, kind, high-quality individuals. They may be more yang than average, which is helpful for their healing. However, most are sympathetic dominant types who tend to be fearful and worry too much, and this slows their healing progress.
They often suffer from some aches and pains, muscle weakness to some degree, and perhaps just tightness of their joints and ligaments. These symptoms are not usually extreme, although they can be annoying.
Many are somewhat perfectionistic and perhaps a bit compulsive. The word ‘anal personality’ is sometimes used in this connection, though there is nothing wrong with this area of the body.
A NEED FOR MORE MAGNESIUM
These clients often need more magnesium in their nutritional balancing programs, regardless of their hair magnesium level. An excellent product for this is ATP-xtra from Endomet Laboratories. This often relieves some symptoms such as anxiety, aches and pains, and perhaps reduces muscle weakness as well.
