I took a class recently called M.E.L.T., which stands for Myofascial Energetic Lengthening Technique, and it is the brain child of Sue Hitzmann, and exercise physiologist from NYC.
Here's a description taken from Sue's site..."The M.E.L.T. Method® (MELT) is a revolutionary approach to pain-free longevity that helps you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. This patent-pending, pro-active self-treatment technique is backed by science and acclaimed by thousands of devoted MELTers."
"New 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 whole-body support, protection, and mind-body communication. Exercise physiologist 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."
One of my secret weapons when developing athletes for Division 1 college football programs and the NFL has been working on the fascia system as part of the living matrix.
So what can M.E.L.T. do for you? Well the techniques "hydrate and lengthen connective tissue, re-balance the nervous system, promote healing and detoxification, decompress the neck and low back, improve core stability, mobilize joints, stimulate organ function, increase flexibility." Can you use any of those. Umm...yeah!
Here's a link to Sue's site. I HIGHLY recommend buying the Hand and Foot treatment kit. It will make a HUGE difference in making you feel better on a daily basis.
