An osteopath says all my muscles seem tense and tight but can also feel tension through my skin what does he mean by this?

Best to ask him but: I think it would be best to ask him, but osteopaths develop a sensitive sense of touch ; he may be feeling tension in your connective tissue/fascia. I advise anyone with muscle tension take magnesium, ideally as mag. Taurate, about 400 mg/day- see http://bit.Ly/1dpai09 relaxation techniques like meditation ; yoga should help. You can also ask your osteopath how to reduce this tension/tightness.
