The MELT Method: A Breakthrough Self-Treatment System
Ready to feel fantastic in just 10 minutes a day?
The MELT Method is a simple self-treatment method that eliminates chronic pain, improves performance, and decreases the “stuck stress” caused by the repetitive postures and movements of everyday living. MELT was created by New York City manual therapist Sue Hitzmann, and it’s now being taught across the country to groups and individuals by hundreds of instructors trained by Hitzmann.
MELT is a gentle way of self-massaging that uses 4 types of rubber balls and a MELT soft roller to hydrate the connective tissue and balance the nervous system. Think of connective tissue like a sponge. When it’s wet, it’s soft and flexible. When dry, it’s stiff and tight. The result of MELT treatments is a release of “stuck stress,” the kind of accumulation that happens due to repetitive movement, injury or sitting at a desk too long. This can lead to headaches, joint stiffness and low back pain.
Because the self-massage techniques are so gentle, MELT is effective for people who are recovering from injury, are pregnant, overweight, sedentary, have limited mobility, chronic pain, or have knee or hip replacements.
It’s also a great starting point for any exercise and wellness program. People who practice MELT regularly report that they’re drawn to exercise more often. It’s easier to prioritize movement when your body feels good, has more energy, and is free of pain.
Come experience MELT in the Root movement studio on Saturday April 15th, to discover how the MELT Method can help you get out and stay out of pain.
