The MELT Method®

MELT No Pain, All GainMELT Method® – The Art of Self Care

The MELT Method ® is a simple self-treatment technique that eliminates chronic pain, improves performance, and decreases the accumulated stress caused by the repetitive postures and movements of everyday living. MELT simulates the hands-on techniques that manual therapists Sue Hitzmann (creator of MELT) and Hilary Bilkis use, to eliminate stress, pain, and dysfunction in their private, hands-on body work clients.

Through a series of easy, precise techniques — using simple, specialized equipment, like a soft foam roller and small balls — this groundbreaking program helps to restore natural balance back to the body.  MELT works by treating the connective tissue, which surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone, and organ.  Connective tissue is the scaffolding that provides the support for your entire body. New scientific research has revealed that the missing link to pain-free living, is a balanced nervous system and healthy, well hydrated connective tissue.  MELT rejuvenates tissue hydration and relieves the tension of day to day life that gets trapped in our bodies. MELT is easy to learn and is changing the way people care for their bodies. MELT also helps decrease accumulated stress in the nervous system, helping improve any person’s overall feelings of wellness.

As a trained MELT instructor, I am offering classes or private sessions to teach you the MELT Hand & Foot treatment and MELT full body foam roller classes.  MELT helps you to reconnect to your body, quiet your nervous system,  and relieve chronic aches and pains. It will improve  your flexibility, posture, range of motion and boost the results and effectiveness of your exercise routine. MELT improves your overall feelings of WELLNESS.
