Base-Line Healing


Meet your Pain, Release the Tensions.

By this point my depression had lifted.

I knew I was onto something life-changing.

Necessary foundations:

Some connection between mind and body - Feeling your Base-Line:

A familiarity with the roll-down action.

Full acceptance of your self-responsibility - read the disclaimer.

When you feel ready... meet and greet your pain.

Practice the roll-down action as you focus on your Base-Line.

Stop where you are when you experience a tightness or pain.

Acknowledge the pain.   Not just background noise any more, say hello.

Pay attention to your body's feedback and get to know your pain.

Breathe with your Base-Line and try to relax. Feel alignment

Developing your sense of conscious proprioception will give you the ability to sense where you should be able to move.

Shake the tensions out, move around , feel for a balance in your main muscles of movement.

Try leaning back as well as rolling forward. Imagine curling your Base-Line in the opposite direction of the roll down. See how it feels.

It was many months before I even thought about leaning back. Forward has to be released first.

Use this flexion and extension of your Base-Line in varied positions.

  • Movement should be smooth and controlled through your full range of movement. Notice where it isn't.
  • from your Base-Line outwards. Explore your movement.

  • Working through the tension and gaining a little more freedom to move. Each adjustment opens new possibilities.
  • Beware of avoidance tactics.   Your no-go areas. At this point I still had no idea how much movement I was missing.
  • If any pain is too intense (a warning pain), then STOP Never force anything.   You have other areas that need to be released first.
  • Whenever you encounter a pain - STOP where you are.

    Focus on your Base-Line and your breathing.

    Feel what happens.

    What started as just swinging my arms in a particular way eventually evolved into a full arms legs body neck dance like routine. Moves repeated 1000's of times, working through each section of the arc. working out the kinks.

    Knowing my routine won't help you. Many roads lead to BFS, you need to find your own way to unravel back to baseline. Focus on your Base-Line and breathing, let the rest of it come naturally.

    1. Are you starting with your BASE - engaging your pelvic floor muscles first?
    2. Can you feel your mid-LINE extending up from your pubic bone to your chest?
    3. Where are the main muscles of movement in relation to each other?
    4. How engaged are they?
    5. Can you feel where you should be able to move?

    Movement should not be painful.
