The MELT Method
The MELT Method is a self-treatment technique that helps prevent pain, heal injury, and erase the negative effects of aging and active living. MELT simulates the hands-on techniques that manual therapist Sue Hitzmann uses to eliminate stress, pain, and dysfunction in her private clients. This unique Hands-off Bodywork™ approach is the first treatment that simulates the techniques – and the results – of manual therapy.
New research has revealed the missing link to pain-free living: a balanced nervous system and healthy, hydrated connective tissue. These two components work together to provide your body’s architectural support and optimal mind-body communication. Using specialized techniques, a soft roller, and three small balls, MELT rehydrates the connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system, and restores space to compressed joints.
How does MELT work?
Daily living creates tension and stress within our bodies. Physical stressors can range from sitting at a desk to running a marathon and everything in between. Emotional, mental, and environmental stressors such as processed foods, medications, environmental toxins, and daily worries all build tension in the body.
This repetitive stress of daily living literally gets stuck in the connective tissue, which surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone, and organ. This “stuck stress” accumulates and causes connective tissue dehydration, which interferes with the nervous systems’s ability to regulate itself and slows down the body’s natural healing process. This creates a domino effect which begins with aches and stiffness and leads to common health issues such as neck and low back pain, headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and injury. Accelerated aging and chronic health problems can follow, leaving us with limited options such as medicine, surgery, and a sedentary lifestyle.
However, when the connective tissue is hydrated and free of “stuck stress”, your body functions more efficiently. MELT is a breakthrough technique that directly addresses this “stuck stress” and slows down the aging process by rehydrating the connective tissue system and rebalancing the nervous system. MELT rejuvenates tissue hydration and relieves the tension of day-to-day life that gets trapped in our bodies. no other approach directly treats these two systems —including nutrition, exercise, or meditation.
