When she is not occupied with a task (we work together), she will rock and sway in place. If she is seated, she will find a way to do the same in her chair. Any sort of downtime she has, the movement will take over and she unconsciously will rock. We've talked about it a bit, but she writes it off as just a habit/unconscious nervous tic. is there any lit out there as to why people may do this? She is mid 30's, and fully cognitive, etc. she has experienced no great trauma. she is not concerned with this, but i am asking out of curiosity. i've read some articles
but they don't seem to really address what i'm looking for. i suppose it's a physiological explanation.
