MELT uses therapeutic small treatment balls and soft body rollers to rebalance your nervous system and rehydrate your connective tissue. MELT focuses on the Neuro-fascial system which has been overlooked by modern medical practitioners. Recent scientific research, bolstered by advanced microscopy, shows us that this is the body's system which supports, protects and stabilizes our muscles, bones and joints. It has also been found that this system becomes dehydrated from age and use. Here is where MELT helps you!
Has MELT been reviewed by experts?
Yes! MELT has been reviewed by internationally respected doctors, neuroscientists, and connective tissue researchers, including Ben Domb, M.D: Tom Myers; Bill Hedley, Ph.D. ; Robert Schleip, Ph.D. and Jean Pierre Barral, D.O. Each expert has recognized that MELT is grounded in scientific principles and offers cumulative and lasting benefits.

Is MELT like yoga, Feldenkrais, 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 Neuro-fascial system (nervous and connective tissue systems) what all other forms of exercise are to the musculoskeletal system. The science of the Neuro-fascial system is being introduced to the health and fitness arena for the first time by Sue Hitzmann and MELT.
What do I wear and bring to a MELT class or session?
That's easy! Wear comfortable clothing, thin socks or bare feet. Bring a water bottle and a yoga mat. For those who cannot get on the floor, we will provide a chair. Just let us know.
We provide the Soft Body Rollers and Specialized MELT therapeutic treatment balls for class, though many students like to bring their own set and roller.
