Feel how to heal.
A healthy body is one that is balanced and aligned, free of tension with a full range of natural movement and good posture.
Our Base-Line muscles are the central support for the rest of the body.
Focusing on them awakens our sense of positioning (conscious proprioception) connecting body and mind so that we can start to feel how to move to improve our posture and work towards body alignment.
Base-Line: Like a strong ribbon anchored to a rock,
from where all movement should originate.
Use the roll-down.
Move as feels natural.
Be inspired by tai chi, movement in water, yoga. ... keep moving from your Base-Line.
Bit by bit, move through the physical restrictions on your body releasing the pain and tensions you have been carrying around.
Regaining a full and natural range of movement
The mind-body wants to heal, give it the opportunity to do so.
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, your Base-Line muscles should be at the core of all movement.
It takes time and focus to utilise the main muscles of movement if you are not used to using them. Try to keep these muscles in mind whatever you are doing.
Your "healing time" will depend on:
The deficiency in my main muscles had been life-long and I had been hard on my body. A decades-long list of damage to work through and symptoms to relive, but after my depression lifted it was like a new world.
It's taken over 3 years of almost constant movement, working through the restrictions, little by little freeing myself from the pain, tension and trauma.
I feel better now than I ever have done before.
