Base-Line Healing


Base-Line Muscles.

Pelvic floor Base.  Rectus abdominis Line.

the base-line muscles and linea alba. Think pelvic floor base, Rectus abdominis line. Our core pillar of strength up the front of the abdomen.

Our core pillar of strength.

The central connector for mind and body.

Your Base-Line muscles provide the core support needed for a full range of movement and a balanced, pain-free body.

Focusing on these muscles lets us develop our sense of conscious proprioception, and with it, the ability to feel the alignment and balance (or lack thereof) of your body.

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.

Think of your pelvic floor muscles as the Base foundation for all movement.

Shown with the base muscles that lie in the middle of the pelvic region, the rectus abdominis muscles extending up from the front of the pelvis to chest.

Think of your rectus abdominis muscles as your central Line, supporting the rest of the body.

Think longer and stronger with every breath in.

All movement should be supported by your Base-Line.

It takes time and focus to learn to fully use your Base-Line muscles.   Keep them in mind whatever you are doing.

As your connection grows, your sense of conscious proprioception will develop, and with it, the ability to regain your natural range of movement, releasing the tensions and pain that you carry around.

The key to healing.

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.

Working with your Base-Line.

Your Base-Line for alignment.

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

Connecting with your Base-Line will help you feel start to feel the position of your anatomical markers for 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.

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