Comment from: Chris Welch, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: November 11

I myself have stepped on a rusty, dirty nail while playing on a pile of wood. It went through my foot. I had gotten a tetanus shot. I was somewhere around the ages of 3 or 5 then. About 22, 24 years later I was offered the tetanus vaccination shot. I got the vaccination shot and a week or two later I was lying on my bed, and I literally could feel groups of muscles in my arms and torso relax and lose a bunch of tension. I felt so much better. So much that I realized that I had been experiencing such tension for years. After the first relief from tension twice after that I noticed two more tension reliefs. One happening in my legs the other in my neck and jaw. I am feeling so good physically now.
