Spasms, knots and muscle tension are associated with fear and holding on too tightly to what is no longer serving you. Self-abuse and self-punishment based in fear of being not good enough are also big contributors. Feelings or worry, and concern for what is coming often creates a low grade tightness in the body which makes muscles overly suseptible to spams and knots and can lead to Myofacial Pain Syndrome in which much of the body is in constant tension/spasm.
