Waxy Flexibility

Waxy Flexibility refers to a bodily state in which you can move a person’s limbs and they will stay wherever you move them. This occurs in people who are catatonic, which is a state of immobility that occurs in association with some mental illnesses where the victim becomes seemingly frozen in mid-activity. Waxy flexibility is most commonly found in Catatonic Schizophrenia, but is also included in the diagnosis of mood disorder with catatonia.
