The MELT Method is a simple self-treatment technique that reduces chronic pain and helps you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. Ten minutes of MELT three times a week is all you need to reduce the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living.
This revolutionary approach is backed by the latest science and acclaimed by tens of thousands of devoted MELTers around the world!
New research has revealed the missing link to pain-free living: balanced nervous system and healthy connective tissue.
These two components work together to provide our body architectural support and optimal mind-body communication.
Manual therapist and connective tissue specialist Sue Hitzmann has transformed groundbreaking neurofascial science and hands-on therapies into a one-of-a-kind treatment method called MELT.
Using specialized techniques, a soft body roller, and three small balls, MELT rehydrates the connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system, and restores space to compressed joints.

How does MELT 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, 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 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 medication, surgery, and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle.
When the connective tissue is hydrated and free of stuck stress, your body functions more efficiently and natural healing occurs daily. MELT is a breakthrough technique that directly addresses stuck stress and slows down the aging process by rehydrating the connective tissue and rebalancing the nervous system. No other approach directly treats these two systems, including nutrition, exercise, or meditation.
NOTE: If you have an issue or chronic pain, group class is not your cure all solution. Most if not all people who have a chronic issue need some one-on-one time to make a strategy to resolve some of the pre-existing issue. Consider doing some private sessions with an instructor if you are in this category.
MELT Hand and Foot Self-Treatment introduction class is available one on one or small group setting at your home or office in Calgary & area in Alberta.
