Eric Berne wrote of Script signals. These are bodily clues that indicate a person has moved into script. Perhaps she will sigh deeply, change position, or tense up part of her body. Berne drew attention especially to tension in the sphincters, the muscles that close the various body openings. Some TA therapist have specialized in this area of body scripts.

To quell the pain of rejection, he suppresses the bodily urges. To stop himself from reaching our, he tenses his arms and shoulders.
  4. 4. Script and the body • Many years later as a grown up, he may still hold this tension. But he will be unaware he is doing so. • He may experience aches and pains in his shoulder or his neck. • Under deep massage or in therapy, he may feel the tension and then release it. • With that release, he is likely to release also the flood of feeling he had repressed since infancy.
