Feel how to heal.
I used to think the human 'machine' was a poor design. But I was wrong, it was years of poor usage that had made life so painful.
I did not use my main muscles of movement. The physical restrictions that had built up on my body - stored trauma and damage - were the source of all my pain, tension and depression. I was mis-aligned and imbalanced, my range of movement severely restricted and I was in constant pain of one sort or another.
Feeling the connection between body and mind and the strength of my Base-Line has changed my life.
I learned to release the pain, you can too.
Our Base-Line (pelvic floor and rectus abdominis) muscles are our core pillar of strength that, when fully utilised and the body is free of restrictions, can support the body through its full range of natural movement.
Think of a solid base extending into a strong and flexible line from where all movement should originate. Like a ribbon anchored to a rock.
Body alignment what does it mean?
Connect with your Base-Line and feel what I mean.
Our Base-Line muscles are 2 of 5 main muscles of movement, the muscles that are crucial to healthy movement and a balanced body. (The gluteus maximus, rectus femoris and trapezius muscles being the other three).
Focusing these muscles develops our conscious proprioception skills and the ability to feel how to move in order to release the physical restrictions that are the source of so much pain.
Use the roll-down whilst focusing on your Base-Line getting longer and stronger.
Focus on using these muscles and your activate your sense of conscious proprioception, growing the connection between mind and body so you can learn to heal yourself.
Always be guided and supported by your Base-Line.
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:
3 months after shifting my focus onto how I used my muscles the depression that had been so all-encompassing, lifted. Like a blanket being pulled off my face and head. Since then it's been over 2 years of almost constant movement of my body, working through the restrictions, freeing myself from the pain, tension and trauma.
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.
Look at the anatomy pages and find the main muscles on your body.
Focus on connecting with these muscles, always starting with your Base-Line.
Use the roll-down and get moving.
Connect mind and body. Feel the power of your Base-Line.
