Explanation:
I think this is what they mean - it's a term typically used in this context.

"Gentle, light palpation promotes abdominal relaxation and allows the detection of muscular resistance (guarding), abdominal tenderness, and superficial masses of the abdominal wall or abdomen."

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for your suggestion, however, the term guarding (which I found on another thread here) is used in the same sentence (non difesa), so this means something different.
