The individual lies on his back on a couch, bed, or a mattress on a table. The position may be varied to advantage by lying face downwards at alternate sessions.
The clothed body with shoes removed gives satisfactory results. For optimum results. Men in brief shorts. Women, shorts plus bra, naturally in a warmed room.
Processor gives the command, "Close your eyes", and acknowledges the action with "Thank you." Or similar acknowledgement. Processor places his hands on the individual's shoulder with a firm but gentle grip, using "agreed" upon firmness. That is, a firmness that the processor knows is as agreeable to the individual as it is to the processor.
The command is: "Feel my hands." ("Feel my hand" on the occasions when one hand is applied.) The individual's reply is acknowledged. He continues to complete similar cycles down the body, over the chest, front of chest, side of chest, hands on both sides of abdomen at the waist, then one hand going around the abdomen in a clockwise direction. (Clockwise because this is the direction of flow of the large bowel). One hand placed over the upper abdomen, pointed vertically toward the head. Both hands on the small of the back, one from each side and lift firmly. A hand over each hip with firmer pressure on these bony parts. Down one leg to the knee with both hands. Down the other leg to the knee with both hands. Back to the other leg and down over the calf, the lower calf, the ankle, the foot and the toes. The other leg from the knee to toes similar.
Then work upward in a flow to ward the shoulder, down each arm, back to the shoulders, both hands behind the neck, one from each side. Sides of face, forehead, and back of head, sides of head. The processor will know where next to place his hands. An infinite variety of placings is available avoiding, of course, only the actual genital areas in both sexes. So the process proceeds up and down the body.
As affinity builds, even as early sometimes as after the first command, the processor will notice that something is happening with the individual. It may be a communication lag, a slight suffusion of the face, a somatic or twitch of the body, or in some way he will know that a communication is available to him. He should then ask, "What happened?"
The individual describes what just happened or what is happening. The processor leaves his hands in position with exactly the same pressure sustained while the individual is talking. The communication is acknowledged and the processor continues with the process.
