Base-Line Healing


Base-Line Muscles.

Pelvic floor Base.  Rectus abdominis Line.

the base-line muscles pelvic floor and rectus abdominis shown in a human figure from the front and angled. The rectus abdominis muscles are like two ribbons that run parallel up the front of the abdomen from pubic symphysis of the pelvis (the bone between the legs) to the front of the chest, attaching to the rib cage i.e they extend quite high. Each rectus abdominis is made up of sections of muscle, panels of musclular tissue separated by bands of connective tissue within each 'ribbon' two stacks of blocks.  The linea alba, a strip of tough connective tissue lies between the rectus abdominis muscles on the body's midline. Think pelvic floor base, Rectus abdominis line. Our core pillar of strength up the front of the abdomen.

Our core pillar of strength for a balanced, pain-free body.

All movement should be supported by your Base-Line.

The position of the rest of your body is relative to your Base-Line.

the pelvic floor and  rectus abdominis muscles shown in human outline shown from the side. The pelvic floor is like a basket of muscles at the base of the body. The solid foundation needed for healthy movement. The pelvic floor is a cresent-shape on midline, the front attaching to the pubic symphysis from where the rectus abdominis muscles extend up the front of the body. The rectus abdominis, thin when seen from the side. Ribbon-like, sectioned into panels of muscle separated by connective tissue up the front of the abdomen. The body's central line.
human outline from above with the pelvic floor muscles in-situ.  Like a basket of muscle, slung between the bones of the pelvis - spanning the pelvic canal.  Several muscles, differing in shape and size, forming the basket. Left and right sides are symmetrical, with holes on the midline for the anus and genital outlets.

pelvic floor - the Base foundation of the body.

A basket of muscles at the root of all movement.

The body's central line, strong and flexible muscles from where the rest of the body extends. The rectus abdominis muscles should be fully extended. Engaged and elongated, supporting the rest of the body through a full range of natural movement.

rectus abdominis - the body's central Line.

Our core pillar of strength, flexible and strong when fully activated and lengthened.

The linea alba between the rectus abdominis muscles is our primary guide for body alignment.

It takes time and focus to learn to fully use your Base-Line muscles. Look at the pictures and find these muscles on your body.

Keep them in mind whatever you are doing. Think: Stronger and longer with every breath in.

Breathing Technique

As you activate your Base-Line muscles, begin to use the roll-down and move as feels natural.

The roll-down

Keep working at it. Find your Base-Line for better health.

The key to healing.

Start to feel your state of body alignment and balance.

Become aware of when 'the wrong' areas of muscle activate. When you feel this happening - relax, breathe and focus on your Base-Line once more.

base-line muscles seen in outline of body. The rectus abdominis central line attaches right between the legs to the pubic symphysis of the pelvis, forming two parallel stacks of panels of muscle, separated by the linea alba.  Attaching to the costal cartilage of ribs 5 6 and 7 of the chest. Our core pillar of strength. Flexible and supportive.

Base-Line - start to feel your alignment.

The linea alba - literally  white line, a strip of connective tissue that runs from pelvis to chest up the midline of our abdomen to the xiphoid process of the sternum. Feel for the upside-down V of the front of the ribs. The linea alba is part of our midline and primary guide for alignment, lying between the rectus abdominis muscles.
