Specialty Classes

The MELT Method

MELT is a breakthrough self-treatment system that restores the functionality of the body's connective tissue to help eliminate chronic pain, improve performance, and decrease the accumulated stress caused by repetitive postures, movements of modern daily living, and aging.

Using specialized techniques, a soft body roller, and four different balls, MELT is designed to reconnect whole-body communication, rebalance the nervous system, rehydrate the connective tissue, and release compression in joints.

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 your body 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.  MELT offers natural pain relief, allowing you to address the true cause of chronic pain, not just mask the symptoms. 

You’ll see and feel results in the first session!
