The MELT Method® is a series of self-treatment techniques that helps prevent pain, heal injury, and erase the negative effects of aging and active living. Learn how to care for your body with the MELT Method; simple, painless and easy to learn techniques dramatically and instantly improve your alignment, flexibility and balance. Created by Sue Hitzmann, MS, CST, NMT a somatic-movement educator and manual therapist who took decades of practice, research, and study of anatomical science and alternative therapies to develop this revolutionary system.
Connective tissue, which surrounds every muscle, bone, joint, organ and nerve and is directly connected to the central nervous system, supports, protects and stabilizes our bodies, movements and functions. Over time, with age, stress, over-use, injury, etc., the connective tissue gets dehydrated, causing pain, stiffness, misalignment, loss in range of motion and inefficiency in our nervous system – which can lead to chronic pain, inflammation, digestive problems, sleep problems, and on.
The MELT method uses specially-designed soft foam rollers and rubber balls, in combination with focused pressure and small, specific movements that actually re-hydrate the tissue at a cellular level– reducing pain and stiffness, correcting misalignments, improving range of motion and calming the nervous system. And because it is a self-treatment method, it improves your self-awareness (body sense), empowering you to take care of yourself, to manage your aging process, your alignment, your pain and enabling your body to get back to an ideal state.
Everyone can MELT. The first time you MELT, you see and feel a difference – and over time, you can transform how your body looks and feels. MELT is changing the way people can care for their bodies. A proactive approach to maintaining a healthy, pain-free, active lifestyle is the best solution for living longer…better.
