tom is it the frowning or the tightning of the head muscles that count because i dont frown that much but move my ears up and then backwards and my scalp is as flexible as it s ever been

Your question is not clear. One thing though - with the scalp exercise there is never frowning. The frowning muscle, the procerus, is never brought into play if yor are doing the exercise correctly.

That means when doing the SE, you should not be frowning?
How can you do the exercise without frowning??
I was sure I was doing the exercise corretly, until this post! I even have your cd.
This absolutely doesn't make any sense!
Copy pasted from "my apporach continued"
"Step number one in the learning process: Stand in front of the mirror and raise your eyebrows (contract the frontalis muscles). Next, try to pull back your ears (contract the occipitalis muscles) as you relax your forehead. There will be only a small, almost imperceptible, movement at first when you are trying to pull back your ears. The contraction of the muscles at the front of the head will be easy. These muscles are fully voluntary. The muscles at the back of the head will require a lot of work."
You say "raise your eyebrowns (contract the frontalis muscles) -Is this not frowning??
Maybe I have misunderstood something here?

E.B. and Anonymous:
"Stand in front of the mirror and raise your eyebrows (contract the frontalis muscles)."
How could this be misinterpreted as frowning? Perhaps we have a different interpretation of frowning. My interpretation of the word is "to bring the eyebrows down." When you contract the frontalis muscles, you raise your eyebrows. This is not rocket science.
You have the video CD. Is there any time in my demonstration that I bring my eyebrows down?
I'm glad you both told me about this misinterpretation. I'll have to clarify again how the exercise is done.

I'm still a bit in the fog here...
"My interpretation of the word is "to bring the eyebrows down."
-Well My interpretation is "to bring the eyebrows up". I don't think, that I am the only one thinking this.
But I am from Denmark and my dictionary may be wrong. I think it is. At least unspecific.
Frowning is when you look angry at someone right?.. bring the eyebrows down.

Yes, frowning is when you are not happy. You bring your eyebrows down.
This is NOT the way to do the exercise.
You need to RAISE your eyebrows, as if being surprised by something
Then you pull your ears back and alternate the two.
