It’s just more fun to move when your body feels good, has more energy, and is free of pain.
Is MELT like yoga, The Alexander Technique, 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 Sue Hitzmann and MELT.
Far beyond weight loss and exercise, through a series of easy, precise techniques—using simple, specialized equipment like soft body rollers and small balls—this groundbreaking program quickly rehydrates connective tissue, making it more supportive, allowing the body to release long-held tension frequently leading to chronic pain symptoms. MELT also helps decrease accumulated stress in the nervous system improving any person’s overall wellness. It’s like getting all the benefits of a great massage yet it lasts longer and takes only minutes a day to get lasting results.
Has MELT been reviewed by experts?
Yes, MELT has been reviewed by internationally respected doctors, neuroscientists, and connective-tissue researchers, including Jean Pierre Barral, D.O.; Ben Domb, M.D.; Gil Hedley, Ph.D.; Tom Myers; and Robert Schleip, Ph.D. Each expert has recognized that MELT is grounded in scientific principles and offers extraordinary benefits.
How often should I MELT?
MELT a minimum of 15 minutes, three times a 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. It’s just more fun to move when your body feels good, has more energy, and is free of pain.
What is MELT Strength?
Through the use of props and very specific exercises, MELT Strength “turns on” neuro-muscular pathways to create stabilization in the shoulders, pelvic girdle, and core. Once the body is more stable, compensatory movement patterns can be erased, and proper muscle timing can be restored. This re-patterning of movement creates a stronger, and more efficient, pain-free, body.
