How does MELT® Method work?
Daily living creates stress and tension within your body. Physical stressors may range from sitting at a desk to running a marathon. Emotional, mental, and environmental stressors also put strain on your body.
The repetitive stress of daily living literally gets stuck in the connective tissue of your body which surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone, and organ. “Stuck stress” accumulates and causes dehydration in the connective tissue which interferes with the nervous system’s ability to regulate itself and slows down the body’s natural healing process.
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 with limited option such as medication, surgery, and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle.
MELT® Method quickly hydrates the connective tissue and frees stuck stress, allowing your body to move more freely, function more efficiently, and heal daily with a rebalanced nervous system. No other approach directly treats these two systems – connective tissue and the nervous system- including exercise, nutrition, or meditation.
Changes in alignment, flexibility, energy, mood, and performance occur within only a few sessions for most people. These techniques and changes were previously only available through ongoing, costly hands-on therapies. Now you can be your own Hands Off Bodyworker® and be in control of your health and well-being.
Who created MELT® Method and has it been reviewed by experts?
MELT® Method was created by Sue Hitzman, MS, CST, NMT who is a nationally recognized manual therapist, educator, exercise physiologist, and founding member of the Fascial Research Society. Sue helps lead the way in both the research and cutting-edge application of fascial science. Sue is the author of the New York Times best-selling book The MELT®: a Breakthrough Self-Treatment System to Eliminate Chronic Pain, Erase the Signs of Aging, and Feel Fantastic in Just 10 Minutes a Day! which is now in its Second Edition and translated in to more than eight languages.
MELT® Method and Sue Hitzman have been featured on NightLine, TODAY Health, Dr. Oz, the Rachel Ray Show, Prevention and Pilates Style magazines, radio and internet talk shows, and more.
MELT® Method has been reviewed by internationally respected doctors, neuroscientists, and connective tissue researchers including Ben Domb, MD; Tom Myers; Gil Hedley, PhD; Robert Schliep, PhD; and Jean Pierre Barral. Each expert has recognized that MELT® Method is grounded in scientific principles and offers extraordinary benefits.
MELT® Method is being taught to and used by practitioners in fitness, sports, rehabilitation, wellness and hospital settings.
Is MELT® Method like myofascial release, yoga, Pilates, reflexology, or physical therapy?
Although MELT® Method is complementary with other treatments, practices, and workouts, MELT® Method is unlike any other technique because it directly addresses an entirely different system of the body. MELT® Method is to the neurofascial system (nervous and connective system) what exercise and rehabilitation are to the musculoskeletal system. The scientific principles and direct self-treatment are unique to MELT® Method and never been introduced before. Adding MELT® Method to your current routine can boost the results of whatever else you are doing.
