It aids in reducing chronic pain, preventing pain from overuse, misuse or disuse as well as supports our natural repair and restorative capacity.
It is based in the cutting edge science of NeuroFascial research and connective tissue, and is a simple, easy-to-learn method that makes self-care easy.
Using soft balls and rollers, we mimic the effects of hands-on therapy to enhance mind-body awareness, rehydrate connective tissue and rebalance the nervous system so more repair and healing may occur. By rehydrating connective tissue, we open up the inherent support structure of the body, relieve stress on the nerves within the tissue and reduce pain, often immediately, with long-lasting effects.
MELT can help increase the beneficial effects of many movement practices, so it is useful for anyone who wants to stay active! The MELT Hand & Foot Treatments are “global” treatments, where we treat the hands & feet to stimulate a whole body response using small balls. The MELT Soft-Foam Roller is designed for localized work throughout the body, using very specific techniques to achieve results.
Creator of the MELT Method, Sue Hitzmann is a remarkably insightful and generous teacher with an awesome sense of humor and a powerful sense of empathy and compassion for those who are struggling with pain. Karin is grateful to become a part of a community that deeply cares about empowering people with these simple self-care techniques to relieve chronic pain and improve their quality of life!
