That was interesting.

Our emotions effect our bodies, our posture, places of tension can be an expression of our feelings and cause physical pain. Also a physical injury can cause an emotional response, I've heard and experienced how back pain can make you feel depressed. 

As a flip side to this I have felt how dancing; physical exercise and working on balance and flow and releasing tension and moving with a different kind of intent can uplift emotions. Also how positive emotions like laughter can be so healing physically.

This article is about some techniques that use physical contact to help deal with anxiety.

i really think mind and body are not so separate as we often think. Anyone else got thoughts on that?

I guess a mechanistic approach would be that the body ie. brain, is in fact the mind. 

To me mind and body are intermeshed. 

I think it's been shown that deep muscle relaxation is incompatible with stress.
