Abstract: Postural analysis is an important part of the study of body language. Postural balance is maintained by equal, continuous tension (tone) between pairs of opposing muscles (antagonists). When one of a pair of opposing muscles is over-tight (palpatory hypertonic), it weakens (inhibits) the other. Or when one is under-toned (hypotonic), it causes the other.
