  • Sequence of movement

    In the upper area of the back, lines leading vertically downwards are drawn by both index fingers one after the other on one shoulder blade each. The movements are performed quickly one after the other, so that the line of the second index finger is already started when the first line has not yet been completely finished. These alternating movements of both hands are performed several times in succession and symbolize running tears.
