 Melanie Carlone, DPT, RYT of http://customorthoticsolutions.com/is a longtime friend of Jetset Rehab Education.  When she attended our class in Portland last year we recorded this during our networking hour.  She is a Physical Therapist with over 30 years of experience.  She is a fantastic Physical Therapist and I treasure the time I worked side by side with her in Atlanta, Georgia quite a few years ago.

Melanie has devised a complementary program of proprioceptive shoe inserts and empowered patient education as tools to recapture "Alignment as Nature Intended", our birthright. This birthright is often eroded in modern living. As a PT she lived and worked many years in Africa and Asia and is especially struck by how much of our chronic pain comes from being out of touch with internal and external alignment principles. When clients are empowered with clear self-understanding  and "bells of mindfulness" (in the form of Maximal Arch Gait Integrated casted shoes inserts) they stand and move and benefit in remarkable ways. This type of insert and training can be used as a powerful adjunct to any practice.

Below are some photos that we discussed during the podcast and a link to her amazing product.
