Base-Line Healing

Learn to use your body better.


Individual Trauma Imprints & Patterns.

Your body. Your pain. You fix it.

What you have experienced, and the effects of those experiences on your body, creates your individual trauma imprint and with it your unique collection of pain-related symptoms.

pain types and weird sensations

Questions to ask yourself...

"Do I use my muscles correctly?"

Focus on your main muscles of movement.   Try activating them in different positions during your normal daily activities.

5 main muscles of movement

How much of each of the main muscles of movement do you use?   Some, most, none?

Can you feel a balance between left and right sides?

How free are these muscles to move?

the main muscles of movement in a human outline. The 5 paired muscles with the Base-Line pelvic floor and rectus abdominis muscles the central pillar of strength. The trapezius muscles from the back of the head to midback, shoulder to shoulder, a curved blanket expanding over the neck and back. The rectus femoris a strong pole from hip bone to shin.   The gluteus maximus - big ass muscles.

"What connection can I establish with my Base-Line?"

Close your eyes and focus on your Base-Line muscles activating.

Base-Line muscles

Start with your pelvic floor Base, then your central Line extending from pelvis to chest.

Can you feel at all what I'm talking about?

female Base-Line muscles pelvic floor like a basket between the legs, and the rectus abdominis muscles from pelvis to chest, two parallel muscles, made up of panels of muscle side by side, to be activated in sequence from base to chest. Connecting with these muscles is how I learned to release the pains of fibromyalgia and other chronic pains.

For how long have I not fully used my main muscles?

Is this life-long problem or an acquired dysfunction that may have developed over time or been triggered by a specific incident?

The longer the dysfunction, the wider the range of symptoms experienced.

"What has my body been through over the years?"

TRAUMA → Injury, accident, abuse, surgery.   Stress, fear, the things that make us tense, flinch, freeze-up.   Awkward positions, shocks, strains, exertions.

Think back.   As you connect with your Base-Line you may become aware of earlier and earlier mis-usage of your muscles.

"How much damage am I carrying around?"

Pains that have never really heal.   Things you can't let go of?

The damage is cumulative, the body becoming more and more imbalanced as it tries to cope with an unrectified dysfunction in the main muscles of movement.

"At what point does something become something I do something about?"

I believe the pain sets in early when the body becomes imbalanced.   Stressed areas of muscle and restrictions in the connective tissue causing various painful symptoms.

If you were pain free, then it's likely the pains are considered significant (and frightening) enough to seek medical advice, leading to an early diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

Or has it been a slow progression?   You consider your list of painful symptoms and old injuries as separate problems and you've ignored the twinges, aches and spasms as they increase over the years - after all a bit of pain is to be expected as you get older, right?

Know your pain

This was a life-long dysfunction for me.   I thought the pain and weird sensations associated with fibromyalgia were part of normal life because I had no pain-free time to compare to, and everyone seemed to have aches and pains so why should I be any different?   The pain and damage continued to build up (and I was hard on my body) until finally I hit rock bottom.

I kept a diary of my experiences during healing, building a list of symptoms and injuries I'd had over the years - some of which I'd forgotten about until I re-experienced the pain as I released the stored damage. And then it was gone - cured.

Trauma trends and patterns.

I have only a case study of one (me!) and the body's interconnectedness is far too complicated for me to describe - subject to almost infinite variables but I believe there will be common trends and patterns depending on the location of the 'primary' restrictions on your body. - past injuries etc.

From a long list of symptoms (all with varying severity and time-scales) there are countless combinations that give you your individual group of clinical signs.

Signs and symptoms occur along damaged and restricted threads.   These trends are what I believe are the basis of TCM.   Physicians describing patterns observed over how many years? How many patients? I'd guess at many hundreds of years, thousands of patients...

The fix is the same.   Connect with your Base-Line and learn to heal yourself by developing your sense of conscious proprioception.   Regain your natural range of movement as you release the physical restrictions on your body that are the source of so much pain.

"Snowflake" is used as an insult these days, but we are all unique - with the infinite combinations of genes, experiences and thoughts.   We are also as insignificant as a single snowflake in the universe.
