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 resulting stress on other muscles and the physical restrictions that had built up on my body - stored trauma and damage - were the source of all my pain, tension and depression. My body was mis-aligned and imbalanced and my range of movement severely restricted. I was in constant pain of one sort or another, a long list of body-wide symptoms over the decades.
Working from 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.
Connect with your Base-Line and feel what I mean.
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 develop your sense of conscious proprioception - the connection between body and mind. Learn to heal yourself, regaining your natural range of movement and releasing the physical restrictions and tension on your body.
Feel how to heal.
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:
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 2 years of almost constant movement, working through the restrictions, little by little freeing myself from the pain, tension and trauma.
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.
