“Myofascial Energetic Lengthening Technique”. The MELT Method® is a simple self-treatment technique that reduces chronic pain and helps you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. Learn easy, gentle self-massage techniques that are designed to re-balance the nervous system and treat connective tissue dehydration that can lead to imbalances in the body and chronic pain.
The MELT Method utilizes specialized techniques with a soft body roller, and four different small balls to rehydrate the connective tissue, rebalance the nervous system, and restore space to compressed joints. Because the MELT Method is designed as a self-treatment technique, you become your own body-worker by learning how to identify and treat areas of tension to bring your body back into a more ideal state.
