Children's rehabilitation with pilates
Pilates is a great exercise for children that can help them improve their strength, flexibility, and balance. But did you know that Pilates can also be used for rehabilitation? One of the best tools for children's rehabilitation is the Pilates reformer. In this blog post, we'll talk about how the Pilates reformer can be used for children's rehabilitation. The Pilates reformer is a piece of equipment that looks like a bed with a sliding carriage and ropes or straps for resistance. It is an excellent tool for children's rehabilitation because it can be adjusted to accommodate different levels of strength and flexibility. The reformer is used to improve core strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, which are all essential components of rehabilitation. Here are some ways the Pilates reformer can be used for children's rehabilitation.
Strengthening the Core
The core muscles are the muscles that support the spine and help maintain good posture. Children who have back pain or spinal injuries can benefit greatly from exercises that strengthen the core muscles. The Pilates reformer can be used to perform exercises that target the core muscles and improve posture. Exercises like the Hundred, Leg Circles, and Planks can be done on the reformer to strengthen the core muscles.
Children who have been injured may experience tight muscles that can hinder their recovery. Stretching exercises on the Pilates reformer can help to improve flexibility and reduce muscle tightness. Exercises like the Mermaid, Long Stretch, and Spine Stretch can be done on

Instead of just wishing good vibes to a loved one at Christmas how about giving them a Vibroslim vibration machine.
A personal Vibration machine is the perfect way to gift the feel good vibes to people we love. We all know how hard it is to remain active around Christmas and we are really busy too. Choosing a personal fitness machine for your family member or friend as a Christmas gift can help them to stay fit and keep the weight down by jiggling all the way through Christmas.
The good thing about having personal exercise equipment at home is the opportunity to just jump on any time you have a moment. Exercising up to 30 minutes a day has huge health benefits. Taking a few minutes here and there between all the things we need to get done can balance out our holiday food challenges.
Vibration machines are gentle on joints and are a low-impact form of training, meaning VibroSlim machines are suitable for anyone, including Grandma, through to conditioned athletes who are able to adjust the settings and add extensive exercises and accessories to get a more intense workout.
Help your family or friends to jiggle their way to a healthier happier them. Even at Christmas.
I love summer don’t you? During the warmer months of the year I feel lighter, happier and more energised. It feels like a holiday. Unfortunately, when the cooler, cloudy autumn and winter months start rolling in so do the blues.
Some of us start to feel a little down, a little depressed and bleak. For most people this is only a temporary thing but for others it can be more than that. Some of us can be prone to SAD, 'Seasonal Affective Disorder’. Can infrared heating at home help?
What is 'SAD' and why does it happen?
- Your body’s internal clock or circadian rhythm leading to feelings of depression. SAD is believed to be influenced by the changing patterns of light and darkness that occur with the approach of winter.
- The change in season can also disrupt our levels of melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that’s made by the pineal gland in the brain helping to control your daily sleep-wake cycles. Your body’s internal clock (also known as your

Today there is no doubt that stress is on the rise. Our bodies and minds are pushed to the limit with busy schedules, family life, work, social activities, running around, not to mention the impact of being online and needing to keep up with our profiles there as well. It's hard getting back into exercise.
Exercise is of course an excellent way to increase our stamina and fitness and help reduce stress for our body and mind. What I often see come up today though, is the impact of different types of exercise on our bodies.
You see, each form of exercise has its own benefits and any exercise is better than none! So certainly getting back into exercise and moving in one way or another, your health depends on it.
There are situations though where the higher impact types of movement may not be suitable for you. Let’s say you have had an injury, an illness, a bad knee or hip, or a long break from exercise. Your walking may have even been impaired, so even getting out for this simple activity could be difficult or impossible. These are just some of the factors which could deter you from any getting back into exercise at all, let alone doing fast, high impact jumping and loaded movements.
Why buy a Vertical Cold Press Slow Juicer
Cold press vertical juicers have literally changed the juicing industry - bridging the gap between the "convenience appeal" of the centrifugal juicer and the health benefits associated with the horizontal cold press slow juicers.
Small Kitchen Footprint
Our range of BioChef juicers including cold press vertical juicers have a small base that easily fit into any small apartment or tiny home. The chute can be removed making it easier to store away in the cupboard when not in use.
Value for Money
Our unrealised dream was to maturate our own brand and so BioChef juicers were developed and designed with user-centric principles and "value" at the core of our methodology.
We are proud to offer a range of cold press juicers that provide efficiency and effectiveness for the user. At the heart of the brand, BioChef is an innovative blend of user-centric design and "Value" through price and product quality as evidenced by the long warranties we are able to uphold.
Our vertical juicers price range is between $200 and $400 making it an easy decision to purchase especially
Vacuum Blenders - Sucking the life back into your blended foods
Vacuum Blenders are relatively new and Vitality 4 Life have been researching this new technology for quite some time. We've rejected many models and worked with designers and suppliers to get the mix right.
To explain a little more, it 'sucks' when you spend time creating the perfect smoothie... thick, colourful, tasty and full of nutrients and by the time kids are called they are faced with an unappetising, watery drink, with brown froth on top? Solve the problem with our vacuum blenders such as the BioChef Astro Vacuum Blender, BioChef Aurora Vacuum Blender and Soup Maker or the BoChef Apollo Vacuum Blender.
Oxygen IS life however oxidation of your blended foods does tend to take, not only the fun, but the life, nutrients, flavour and taste out. Vacuum Blenders suck the life back in to your blended foods and keep it there until YOU are ready to use it.
What is Vacuum Technology?
Vacuum technology in the blending industry is still fairly new. For supermarkets and other food retailers it has been an essential part of food storage since the 1940’s. Vacuum sealed packaging and canning processes helped keep our food fresher for longer and now you can use that technology to prolong the shelf life of your soups, sauces, smoothies, nut butters a
Unsure which juicer is right for you? Vitality 4 Life, the original cold press juicer company, can help you to select the perfect juicer for your needs and lifestyle. Avoid the overwhelm and confusion, and let us make the choice simple and easy.
Which juicer should I buy? This is by far our most asked question at Vitality 4 Life, and for good reason! With such an array of cold press juicers available in the market, it can be hard to know which type or brand is best for you. Your needs can depend upon dietary, health, usability and/or functionality requirements.
The first thing to do when looking for a juicer is to ask yourself a few simple questions:
- Do you see yourself as a beginner (new to juicing), a health enthusiast (knowledgeable about the benefits of different types of fruits/vegetables) or a patient (looking to overcome an illness naturally)?
- Are you wanting to juice mostly fruit or mostly vegetables?
- What features are important to you - ease of cleaning, ease of use, juicing speed?
- Are you looking to juice specialised superfoods such as wheatgrass, aloe vera or pomegranate?
- Do you like the idea of a juicer which can also perform food processing tasks?
Having clear buying objectives will allow you to select a machine that suits you best!
It may surprise you to learn that there are 5 different types of cold press juicers, and each are suited to different types of customers and their needs. Firstly, it is important to determine where you are on the "road to health" and more specifically, what you are looking for in a juicer...

Where did Pilates all begin?
Joseph Hubertus Pilates was born in Germany in 1883. As a child, Joe suffered many ailments including asthma so he turned to exercise and athletics to help. He studied various exercise routines and was transfixed with the idea of the classical Greek ideal of man with a balanced mind, body and spirit. Hence Pilates was born.
In 1912 Joe went to the U.K working as a defense instructor at Scotland Yard but at the outbreak of World War I he was interned as an “enemy alien”. Rather than wallow he refined his ideas by training other internees by rigging springs to hospital beds to enable patients to exercise against resistance. These contraptions were the innovation behind later equipment designs.
In 1926 Joe headed to America meeting his wife Clara along the way. When they arrived they opened a studio near the New York ballet. This lead to many dancers and other athletes becoming his clients. Some of those clients then went on to open their own studios throughout the U.S.
Then Hollywood came calling and where the stars go the media follows. The pilates business boomed and entered the fitness mainstream. These days in Australia over 2.9% of the adult population participate in Pilates pra

Why are we going nuts for Cashew milk?
For those who choose a dairy free diet almond milk has been the king of the nut milk world. However it seems that soon almond milk maybe knocked off its lofty throne and be replaced by a new king.. cashew milk. Why?
Apart from the incredible health benefits attributed to the cashew nut the cashew milk just tastes better. It has a less nutty flavour than almond milk and won’t overpower the other flavours in your smoothies. Best of all you don’t have to strain them thereby retaining the important fibre, you just soak overnight, add water and blend in your BioChef Nova. Voila!
Here are just five of the reasons that cashew milk is good for all of you.
