I personally feel that " RELAXING " can be a greater challenge to most of us people. Like especially to those  that practice tensing and don't know how to let go of TENSION😣Sometimes when I'm working on a client I will ask them to relax a certain body part. It could be their neck or shoulder area where people carry alot of tension. Surprisingly  most clients will say " That's why I'm here ! Isn't that your job?"  Yes to a degree it is ! I mean I'm here to help facilitate  the release of the muscle. To help it learn how to relax. But the client has to understand that we have to work together for the relaxation to be successful. ☺Now as Massage Therapists we don't expect a client to simply relax .
