  • Sequence of movement

    The hand is formed into a flat hand with splayed fingers. The fingertips are slightly bent, forming a kind of claw hand. Then, the fingertips are tapped twice on the upper back of the person being addressed, between their shoulder blades. Afterwards - but in a flowing movement after the last tap - the fingertips are bent a little more and two successive circles are made between the shoulder blades. The circles are rotated from the starting point to the left.
