3 year old is zoning out & rocking

My 3 1/2 year old has always rocked herself, and I have never thought it strange.  Recently (last 10 days or so) she is not only rocking herself, but will 'zone out' and flexes her arm & leg muscles making them rigid.  She will stop playing to sit or lay down so she can do this.  I have watched her do this for anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes.  While this is happening it is difficult to get her attention - calling her name, touching her shoulder or leg, etc. doesn't work the first time.  She always says she is ok, and I want to believe that, but I am concerned.  I have always been a 'less is more' type parent but don't want to ignore something if it warrants attention.
