Base-Line Healing


Base-Line theory:

The 5 Main Muscles of Movement.

The 5 main muscles of movement are:

1. pelvic floor Base (actually a group of muscles)

2. rectus abdominis Line

3. gluteus maximus

4. rectus femoris

5. trapezius

When properly functioning, the main muscles of movement provide the central framework for the body to work as it should - strong, balanced and pain-free.

Learning to use my main muscles of movement, with my Base-Line at the core, has changed my life.

I feel physically and mentally better than I ever have done before.

female Base-Line muscles pelvic floor like a basket and the rectus abdominis either side of your central line - the linea alba. Connecting with these muscles is how I cured my fibromyalgia and chronic pain.

The pelvic floor and rectus abdominis muscles are your Base-Line for healthy movement.   Focus on these muscles becoming stronger and longer, feel them working.

The other main muscles of movement link the rest of the body to your Base-Line support:

the gluteus maximus muscles of the buttocks, big and strong.  The rectus femoris muscles of each leg from pelvis to shin bone/tibia, a strong pole down the front of each leg. These muscles work together, focus on the whole of each muscle contracting, linking to baseline suppport.

The gluteus maximus and rectus femoris muscles of each leg work together to connect your Base-Line to your legs.

The trapezius muscles should be free to extend in all directions, connecting your Base-Line to your upper body - head and arms.

The left and right trapezius muscles forming the superficial layer from  of the back and neck, extending out towards each shoulder, appearing like a kite shape with the nuchal and supraspinous ligaments where the left and right sides meet in the middle of the back of the body.  Movement should start from the lower trapezius, spreading up and out - the lower

Sensory feedback from the main muscles of movement is crucial for conscious proprioception and the ability to feel how to move in order to regain your natural range of movement and balance your body, using the linea alba as the primary reference for body alignment.

Two stacks of blocks to be activated in sequence with the linea alba - white line - running midline up the front of the abdomen. The primary guide for body alignment.

What happens if I don't use my main muscles and have no connection to my Base-Line?

List of anatomy pages

the main muscles of movement. Pelvic floor muscles. Rectus abdominis muscles that start from the pubic ligament and symphysis, the middle of the front of the pelvis and attach to the ribs. Trapezius muscles attach to the base of the skull and down the mid-line of the upper back also extending towards the shoulders.
