FROM SPINNING GALAXIES TO SPINNING ATOMS SYSTEMS COME INTO BALANCE.
|The practice of Stix reflects this and allows a reflective development to occur on the physical, mental and emotional levels of the player. |
A tension line develops in the body that allows action to happen on either side, with preferences going to one hand or the other for varying kinds of activities. The tension lines are a combination of gravity on the body and the body's inherent ability to reach, stretch and turn.
The tension line of your body follows the muscle all the way to the feet and into the ground. As you walk, run or move, you push against this line. While the line may be split occasionally while resting on both feet, it reverts to a single line of force with any movement. The line in one perspective could be looked at as our bodily response to gravity. We literally developed our capacity to walk upright by pushing against it. Our muscles coiled around the bone and pulled, each part connected to and reliant on the other - all pushing and pulling to create a line of action and active capacity.
"develop various areas of the body and work through traumas, blockages, ..."
The movement is like quicksilver - or energy/motion in the form of weight and the changing push the body has to make to maintain the action through re-acting as well as initiating the next action. This allows you to push the process through all the links in the body or focusing it on only one link or combination of links.
In other words, you can exercise and develop various areas of the body and work through traumas, blockages, and the day to day muscle stiffness that we encounter through out lifetimes. The Stix provide a therapy that is inexpensive and do-it-yourself. Meditate on some of these ideas while doing Stix and see of you can work out some of your own kinks.
