Myotherapy combined with meditation can provide much needed relaxation and restoration for your body, promoting that which we all wish to achieve on a daily basis; a clear mind and healthy body.
Whilst Myotherapy is primarily founded on Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, meditation draws much of its inspiration from Eastern relaxation methods developed over thousands of years.
Working in unison these two methodologies have the potential to provide you with one or more of the following:
The philosophies of both myotherapy and meditation are powerful allies in combating stress, exhaustion and injury and have long been linked due to their well-known and proven health benefits for people in need of relief or recovery from tension or physical injury.

This week we talk to Jason Agosta Podiatry and find out more about the use of orthotics for children.
Orthoses should be used conservatively for children. Many children do not have a history of problems that require a change in their alignment of the lower limb or foot, and many children are naturally mobile with their feet. Rapid growth contributes to poor muscular control of motion, and it is important to allow natural strengthening to occur with time. The rapid growth of bones and increased weight causes the muscles to be lengthened and become relatively poor in strength for power and good muscular control. With poor power and control there is often greater motion but this improves significantly. This is an easy time for children to be injured from increased loading from activities.
For all young children, bare feet and the wearing of thin flexible footwear is a necessity for maintaining motion and increased sensory input to the foot and lower limb which is then intern is a stimulus for increased muscular activity. If a child has extremely poor posture of the lower limbs or feet, due to asymmetry of alignment or excessive mobility, orthoses may be used to support the foot and lower limbs.
Fun Fact: An orthosis is the correct term for an externally applied device that is designed and fitted to the body to achieve one or more of the following goals:
It is not until a young person slows or stops with their growth and has significant hormonal changes that the young body can increase strength substantially. Maintaining motion of the foot requires increased muscular use and control of the lower limb. If motion is reduced significantly and the foot is braced with orthoses and footwear that is secure and stable, there is less need to recruit muscular control. Simple flexible orthoses, which give only a percentage of improvement, are often all that is needed to assist children. If necessary, it is advisable to intervene, after the age of 6-7 years. This is because of the natural development and rotations of the bones of the feet that occur between birth and 6-7 years of age. Problems including severe in-toeing, out-toeing and severe toe walking when very young should be referred to a paediatric specialist. In this practice only soft flexible orthoses are used for children. If orthoses are required for children, it is the opinion of this practice that a conservative approach is best.
Elite works closely with many health professionals to achieve the best results possible for their clients and have found kinesiology can be a great addition to managing stress levels.
In the natural health field; kinesiology is where muscles combine with the principles of Chinese medicine to monitor stress and imbalances in the body.
These stresses can show up in the body as one or a combination of the following:
Structurally & physically: pain, posture, injury, flexibility
Chemically: Allergies, intolerance's, nutrition, hormones, drugs related
Educational: learning difficulties, brain integration, comprehension, motor skills, behavioural problems, attention deficit
Emotional: phobias, fears, anxiety, emotional abuse……. Just to name a few
Mental: positive and negative thoughts
Spiritual: belief systems, limitations, knowing who we are and why?
