Base-Line Healing


Breathing with your Base-Line.

Breathe in and up through your nostrils.

Breathe out through your mouth.

Breathing with your Base-Line muscles. Image of face with arrows going up into the nostrils. breathe in through your nostrils, feel your whole body extend. Breathe out through your mouth. Repeat.

Focus on your Base-Line muscles activating as you inhale.

The body's core pillar of strength.

Stronger and longer with every in breath.

Base pelvic floor like a basket between your legs, and the rectus abdominis muscles the body's central line - two stacks of muscle panels side by side from pubic symphysis to chest. Breathe with your baseline to extend your midline. Engage and elongate the body's core pillar of strength from where the rest of the body extends.

Base-Line muscles

Don't rush, take as many breaths as you need to activate your Base-Line as much as you can.

Begin with your pelvic floor muscles.

The BASE foundation from where all movement should stem.

Then your rectus abdominis muscles.

The central LINE from where the rest of the body extends. Strong and flexible, supporting all movement when fully working.

Use your hands over your rectus abdominis muscles and imagine each pair of panels activating in turn, extending and aligning your midline from pubic symphysis to chest as you work with your breathing.

pubic symphysis

I found it easiest to work on my breathing whilst standing (in a relaxed manner) or lying on my back.

Do whatever feels good for you.

It can take a long time to break old habits and activate the correct muscles if you are not used to using them.

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

Little by little improvements are made.
