HI intermediate Tai Chi,

Thank you for your post. One major objective of Silk reeling/spiral exercises is to open up and exercise the 18 major joint areas of the body (in sequence from the head to the ankles). The 18 major joints consist of: neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, chest, abdomen, waist, kuas, hips, knees, and ankles. These 18 major joints are also referred to as 18 "balls" of the human body. By harmonizing the internal turning and external twisting with Chi via the silk-reeling exercises, one can reach a state where the entire body will become an integrated "Taiji sphere.

Enjoy !

Kindest Regards
Morné
