  • Sequence of Movement

    The index finger and thumb of both hands form a "C" each and are placed in this position with the fingertips in the middle of the back of the addressed person. In this position, both hands are pulled apart across the back, indicating the horizontal lines of a rectangle (left hand pulls to the left and vice versa). From this position onwards, the drawn rectangle is closed by moving the indexfinger and thumb towards each other on both sides. Directly after that, both index fingers alternately tap points on the back of the person from left to right.
