    New Zentangle Applications
    Wonderful New Possibilities

    We came across an article written by a doctor in Bogata, Columbia describing how he used pattern drawing to help his 10 year old son relieve his facial tics.

    Here's the relevant excerpt as translated from his Spanish language website (which is not always up):

    "That night, after seeing the attractor vortex in the water, I was worried when I saw too many tics in the face of my son. I suggested he make scrabbles and lines on a paper. I said to him: "try to feel the energy that is inducing you to make grimaces with your facial muscles." He drew spirals at the same rhythm that he was moving his lips, his eyebrows, and his nose. He passed those energetic forces from his face to his hand by drawing, until he became conscious of the field that was disturbing him. My conclusion is that his tics were like an attractor, a spiral, a pulsating vortex for his muscles; they were like a probability wave that made him execute a Fixed Action Patterns-- FAP; those tics disappeared when his hands and his gymnastics absorbed the energetic "spiral" that before were expressed as tics (unconscious Gymnastics). To draw lines and scrabbles on the paper was another pulsating spiral that absorbed the force of his hand."

    What a wonderful new area of application this opens up for Zentangle. We are looking for qualified folks to do some clinical studies on how Zentangle's method can assist in this field. So, if you know anyone, send us an email.
