Mr. Davis, you have probbably misunderstood me talking about relaxation. Of course it is not the ultimate goal! But helps to those people who were not capable to play relaxed (before) to achieve other goals.
My music teacher also calls it the same thing. You can check out a book of methods by famous Russian harp teachers such as K. Erdely, M. Rubin, and N. Parfenov if you need more info about Russian Method.
