Base-Line Healing


List of Anatomy Pages

There are five muscles to learn about. Each has a "keeping it simple" section (hopefully a good starting point for anyone without previous knowledge) and a more "in detail" page with complete anatomical descriptions.

Use all the pages. Look at the illustrations. Imagine your main muscles of movement working and build a connection. An on-going process - something that you need to work at, starting from Base-Line.

Base-Line muscles:

The rectus abdominis muscles extending from pelvis to the ribcage. The body's core pillar of strength either side of the linea alba. The rectus abdominis muscles should bend and flex in all directions, supporting the rest of the body through a full range of movement.

Base-Line to Legs

The gluteus maximus muscles, solid and secure in the buttocks, linking to the rectus femoris at the front of each thigh. The main muscle of movement are the body's central support needed for pain free movement when these muscles feel balanced either side of the median plane and the body is free of physical restrictions.
