MELT method is the first neurofascial technique. This patent pending 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…better. A little proactive self-care goes a long way toward keeping you pain-free and active for a lifetime. – Sue Hitzmann hhhhhh
What is MELT method?The MELT Method® is a breakthrough, self-treatment system that helps maintain a healthier and pain free lifestyle. hhhhhh
The MELT Method helps restore the supportiveness of the body's connective tissue to combat chronic pain, improve performance, and decrease the accumulated stress caused by repetitive postures and movements of everyday living.
How do we maintain an active, pain-free lifestyle for our entire lifetime? New research has revealed the missing link to pain-free living: A balanced nervous system and healthy connective tissue. These two components work together to provide whole body support, protection, and mind-body communication. Exercise physiologist and connective tissue specialist Sue Hitzmann has transformed ground breaking neurofascial science and hands-on therapies into a one-of-a-kind treatment method called MELT.
Who is MELT for?MELT is for anyone who wants to slow down the aging process and live better, longer. For those in their 40s, 50s, and older who want to stay active, mobile, and independent — MELT is a must. MELT is also for active, younger adults and athletes who want to maintain a fit, toned body and achieve optimal performance without debilitating wear and tear. MELT is truly for everyone! Even if you are pregnant, injured, post-surgery, overweight, sedentary, out of shape, have limited mobility, chronic pain, knee/hip replacements, or bone disorders — you can still MELT. It’s the best starting point for any exercise program. hhhhhhh
What does "MELT" stand for?It is an acronym for "Myofascial Energetic Length Technique". The magic of working with connective tissue is that because it is one seamless, interconnected system – wrapping around every muscle, bone, joint and organ – you can create a change throughout the body even when you're only working on one part of it. hhhhh
What benefits does MELT offer?MELT creates a strong, flexible body that maintains its’ upright posture for life. And you will see and feel results after just one session! hhhhh
Flexibility & mobility Alignment & posture The results of exercise Range of motion Sleep & digestion Overall well-being
Aches & pains Wrinkles & cellulite Tension & stress Headaches Risk of injury
How does MELT work?MELT addresses many common areas of pain that are associated with our daily movements and functions. Listed below is a description of the causes of chronic pain, the effect, how MELT can help and why you should start this program today. hhhhh
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 creates trapped tension, as does even the gentlest form of exercise. Emotional, mental and environmental stressors such as processed foods, medications, environmental toxins and daily worries all build tension in the body.
New science reveals that this “stuck stress” is literally trapped in our connective tissue, which surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone, and organ. Unaddressed, trapped stress causes connective tissue dehydration and cellular damage. This creates a domino effect that 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 roadblocks, our bodies function at a more optimal level. MELT is a breakthrough technique that 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. No other proactive approach directly treats the connective tissue —including nutrition, exercise, yoga, meditation, or vitamins.
MELT is easy to learn, backed by cutting-edge research and offers immediate results that you will see and feel the first time you MELT. Changes in posture, flexibility, energy, mood and performance occur within only a few sessions. Best of all, your body feels great long after you MELT!
Is MELT like yoga, Feldenkrais, Pilates or physical therapy?No. MELT is unlike any other technique because it addresses an entirely different system of the body. MELT is to the neurofascial system (nervous and connective tissue system), what all other forms of exercise are to the musculoskeletal system. The science of the neurofascial system is being introduced to the health and fitness arena for the first time by the MELT Method®. Through a series of easy, precise techniques—using simple, specialized equipment like soft foam rollers and small balls—this groundbreaking program quickly rehydrates connective tissue, making it more supportive and allowing the body to release long-held tension that frequently leads to chronic pain. MELT also helps decrease accumulated stress in the nervous system helping to enhance any person’s overall wellness. It is like getting all the benefits of a great massage yet it lasts longer and only takes minutes a day to get lasting results. hhhhhhhh
Has MELT been reviewed by experts?Yes, MELT has been reviewed by internationally respected doctors, neuroscientists, and connective-tissue researchers, including Ben Domb, M.D.; Tom Myers; Gil Hedley, Ph.D.; Robert Schleip, Ph.D.; and Jean Pierre Barral, D.O. Each expert has recognized that MELT is grounded in scientific principles and offers extraordinary benefits. hhhhhhh
How often should I MELT?
- MELT a minimum of 15 minutes, 3 x week to experience immediate and long-lasting benefits and if you want to MELT every day, that’s okay too.
- MELT before strength training to improve muscle performance or after a cardio workout to erase joint compression and stiffness.
- People who MELT regularly find that they want to exercise more often, having more energy and free of pain.
