If you don't fully use your 5 main muscles of movement your body becomes imbalanced as other areas of muscle try to compensate. These 'mimic' muscles become stressed and sore resulting in myalgia of imbalance.
You are more prone to injury when your body is imbalanced.
Restrictions form in connective tissues. These restrictions cause stiffness and apply tensions throughout the body. Injuries stay with you rather than fully healing when the body doesn't return to a full range of movement and dynamic alignment. 'Stored trauma'.
You suffer pain. Different types of pain and weird sensations.
The body becomes more and more imbalanced and misaligned.
Stiffness, tension, pain.
You may not realise how much movement you are missing, or attribute it to getting older. The body is very adaptable, skipping over painful movements and restricted areas by adjusting your posture throughout your body.
An ever-growing list of symptoms and syndromes (that may appear unrelated but are all pain-based). Your individual trauma imprint creates your unique list of issues.
Chronic physical pain is detrimental to mental health. Stress, anxiety, depression. Self-doubt, feelings of hypochondria.
The more trauma you've suffered and the more active you've been stressing your body without the support of the main muscles of movement, the more damage will be stored on your body, so the clinical signs of dysfunction in the usage of your muscles will be noted at a younger age and progress at a faster rate.
There are many idiopathic (of unknown cause) symptoms and syndromes associated with chronic pain.
No known cause means no effective treatment. No relief for those who suffer.
I believe that only when the main muscles of movement are being used correctly can their dysfunction be ruled out as the cause of the otherwise mysterious, painful symptoms experienced by so many.
You don't know what you are missing!
Your brain has no central guide for body alignment.
You are unable to re-set to healthy after a trauma. You adjust rather than heal.
Traumas build up. Pain levels continue to increase.
Fidgeting in bed, trying to 'align my spine' in an attempt to ease the pain but I had no Base-Line reference to guide me.
Read this website. Take control. disclaimer.
Start with your Base-Line muscles. Find them on your body and keep working on building a connection between mind and muscles - learning to activate them and feel your 'core pillar of strength' increasing in power - longer and stronger using Base-Line breathing technique.
Practice the roll-down whilst focusing on engaging your Base-Line muscles.
Explore movement extending out from your Base-Line.
Do what is easiest - find positions where you can feel these muscles activating and work from there.
Feel for a balance in the left and right of each of the 5 main muscles of movement. Where are they in relation to each other? Can you feel them?
Sense where your natural range of movement should take you.
Find your tension areas. Release the pains you have been carrying around.
The mind-body wants to heal.
Give it the time and opportunity to do so.
As I unravelled the physical mess that I was in, I experienced pains everywhere - shifting around and around. Reminders of all the symptoms I've had over the years, and then they were gone - released: healing pains.
Releasing physical tensions had emotional effects. I learned to let them happen, and then let them go. A part of releasing the tension and becoming more balanced. my emotional experiences.
