“A little proactive self-care goes a long way toward keeping you pain-free and active for a lifetime.” – Sue Hitzmann

The MELT Method® (MELT) 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.

MELT is the first neurofascial technique. This method brings your body back to a more ideal state by directly enhancing body awareness, rehydrating connective tissue, and quieting the nervous system. 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 care for their bodies. This proactive approach to maintaining a healthy, pain-free, active lifestyle is the best solution for living longer and better.

Day to day living creates tension within our bodies. Physical stressors range from sitting at a desk to running a marathon. Carrying children and heavy bags create trapped tension as does even the gentlest forms of exercise.  Emotional, mental and environmental stressors such as processed foods, medications, environmental toxins and daily worries all build tension in the body.

MELT offers the opportunity for anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, to improve their balance, stability and tensegrity through self-treatment. The consistent results MELT yields are remarkable and undeniable. MELT utilizes a system of soft foam rollers and small balls that lengthen and hydrate the connective tissue.

Our connective tissue surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone and organ. Unaddressed trapped tension causes connective tissue dehydration and cellular damage. This creates a domino effect that begins with aches and stiffness and leads to common health problems 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 our connective tissue is hydrated and free of roadblocks, our bodies function more efficiently. MELT keeps our connective tissue and nervous system in top condition and slows down the aging process. MELT rejuvenates tissue hydration and relieves the tension of day-to-day life that gets trapped in our bodies.
