    Hi Frank, there is certainly a connection between relaxing the jaw muscles and the rest of the body, however it just one component. If you can release the whole body from the foot to the top of the head, allowing the muscles to hang and with as little engagement as possible while maintaining the correct skeletal alignment, this will assist in creating an “internal stretch.” And this continuous releasing of tension is what creates the first stages of Song, 松開 Song Kai – “Opening Song” and 松沉 Song Chen – “Sinking Song”.

    I hope that helps.
