So in your experience would you say that saying motionless in this case will often encourage the snake to loosen it's grip naturally?

Basically, in addition to a large strange animal, they see us as really weird trees as well. In the wild, if tree-dwelling snakes feel any shaky movements on a branch, they will hold on very tight to that branch so as not to fall off. Here, the 'shaky movements' can be from a human being nervous, which will cause the snake to be nervous and grip, only escalating the fear of the unwitting human and thus causing a negative loop.
