Short Description: 
The importance of the sixth sense (kinaesthesia and proprioception) on movement and for the Technique.
Mouritz description: 
This description of the Technique emphasizes the influence of the sixth sense, (kinaesthesia and proprioception). The author explains the various terms used, (e.g. inhibition, direction, primary control), by pointing to some of the underlying physiological mechanisms at work, some of which are illustrated by his own research. Anatomical terms are explained as they are introduced.
