Have You Heard Of The MELT Method?
The MELT Method, which stands for Myofascial Energetic Length Technique, is a type of self-conducted bodywork. It’s a technique that is clinically proven to enhance mobility, stability and performance. Many people find that they are able to reduce chronic pain with the MELT Method, experience a calm mind, and gain an overall greater sense of wellbeing. The MELT Method can be used as a preventative measure to help decrease one’s risk of developing repetitive stress injuries, as well as for helping relieve all kinds of pain.
MELT works by stimulating the techniques of manual, hands-on therapeutic approaches, yet it is self-administered. Foam rolling and self-massage techniques are used in MELT for self-myofascial release, along with meditation and breath-work. The myofascial release used in MELT is gentle and involves applying light pressure to help restore connective tissue, also called fascia. Our fascia is an important support network in our bodies, which surrounds our muscles, bones, nerves and organs. It is believed that the wear and tear we put on our bodies, which becomes more pronounced as we age, results in dehydration of the fascial system. Sue Hitzmann specifically developed the MELT Method technique to rehydrate the connective tissue. Along with rehydrating the connective tissue, MELT also results in a more balanced nervous system.
MELT is a gentle technique that is appropriate for anyone who would like to have better ease of movement. MELT can help one stay active, mobile and more independent by slowing down the effects of aging. The technique is also great for young people, especially those who perform repetitive movements, such as running, which can dehydrate the connective tissue. Most people who take a MELT class say that they experience results after just one session.
Through this simple, self-conducted bodywork practice, you can achieve greater flexibility and mobility, improved posture, enhanced exercise results, improved range of motion, enhanced digestion and sleep, and a greater sense of wellbeing. MELT can help reduce aches and pains, wrinkles and cellulite, tension, headaches, and even prevent injuries.
