MELT employs the use of gentle tools for the goals of fascial tissue remodeling, pain relief, and performance improvement. The application and compression-quality of the specialized MELT balls and rollers have a unique feel and objectives, providing light-touch techniques to help regulate sympathetic to parasympathetic tone, improve heart rate variability (HRV), and fine-tune motor control.
Recent 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 your body with support and optimal mind-body communication. MELT directly addresses these two systems of your body in a way no other self-treatment can, including diet and exercise. You’ll see and feel results in the first session.
The ultimate goal of MELT is to improve your body’s ability to restore balance and repair itself, which can create remarkable, lasting changes. MELT offers natural pain relief, allowing you to address the true cause of chronic pain, not just mask the symptoms.
The final aspect of MELT methodology incorporates before and after self-assessment protocols at each step that are key to developing self-empowerment and self-knowledge, and may assist in scientific data collection and tracking.
MELT, developed by Sue Hitzmann, is an acronym for Myofascial Energetic Length Technique. All MELT techniques and protocols were built upon key aspects of these major hands-on therapies and influencers: Neuromuscular Therapy (Chaitow), CranioSacral (Upledger), Manual Muscle Testing (Kendall and McCreary), Lymphatic Drainage (Chikly), Visceral Manipulation (Barral), Anatomy Trains (Meyers), Structural Integration (Rolf), and the World Fascia Congress (Vleeming, Pollack, Hedley, Stecco et al.).
