Homeostasis is the ability or tendency to maintain internal stability in an organism to compensate for environmental changes. In other words, it is when a tight muscle or ligament is relaxed enough to the point that it is no longer in a tense state. In order for Homeostasis to be achieved different techniques need to be employed in order to reach the deeper layer of tissues that may be the cause of muscular issues. Deep tissues are the muscles and ligaments that are deep below the surface muscle layers. During stressful times exhausted cells put strain on muscles causing a tightness that can lead to other health disorders like insomnia and fatigue.
