Tight Shoulders … in context

Tight Shoulders?

So common to hear, say, or be told, “Your [whatever body part] is tight … ”

I would ask: tight in relation to *what*?

Tight only exists in relation to not-tight. So what are the relationships within the whole gestalt?

A statement like that — oh this is tight; this is weak; this isn’t whatever enough — without its context makes less and less sense to me.

Granted, sometimes that context is implicit … but just as often, or rather I’d say alongside that implicit context, is an unexamined assumption about the state, or just tonus even, of the rest of the body.

Sometimes the most fruitful terrain is where you’re *not* asking about.
