Most things work in concert in regards to our body. If your hands are relaxed, then your tongue, mouth, neck and back muscles are more likely to be relaxed. Turn your harp around and look at the cover plates. Are they slightly crushed inwards? If so, start working on relaxing your hands and you'll start noticing other parts of your body starting to relax as well.
