The MELT Method was created by New York City manual therapist Sue Hitzmann and is the very first Hands-off Bodywork® method developed for the general public as a self-care tool to prevent and relieve chronic pain.
In this introductory workshop you will learn about the science of MELT, the connective tissue system and its vital role in maintaining a stable, balanced, and connected body. Learn why fascial intervention is necessary on a daily basis to positively affect this renewable resource that is unaddressed by exercise and diet. Participants will be introduced to the global MELT Hand and Foot Treatments using the soft ball treatments and explore simple, yet profound techniques using the MELT soft body roller.
Learn how to assess where stuck stress is living in your body, how to recalibrate your nervous system to boost your body’s ability to heal itself, and how to release tension in your neck and low back by following the four R’s of MELT: Reconnect, Rebalance, Rehydrate and Release.
With MELT you will learn how to help the body run more efficiently, promote more restful sleep, improve digestion, eliminate chronic pain, enhance athletic performance, reduce inflammation and ease joint compression from repetitive movements and daily living. Learn ways to intervene now to feel and look younger, and live better longer!
