stress posture

Any of a number of positional techniques (e.g., leaning back over a well-cushioned high chair or bending the knees and arching back until a snap or release is felt) for physical and emotional release. The posture was developed by Wilhelm Reich, and intended to treat muscle and joint fatigue; the efficacy of the stress posture is uncertain.
