The MELT® Method is a self-treatment technique designed to prevent injury, improve recovery time, and alleviate pain. MELT® was created by renowned cranial sacral, neuromuscular therapist, and fascia researcher, Sue Hitzmann as homework for her patients to simulate her hands on bodywork. Through a carefully coordinated series of movements on a soft body roller and specially designed balls, MELT® rehydrates the fascia, rebalances the nervous system, improves alignment, flexibility and muscle activation. MELT® is a great tool for people looking to maintain an active lifestyle and continue moving with ease at any age.
