MELT Method

What is MELT?

The Melt Method (MELT) is a simple self-treatment technique that reduces chronic pain and helps you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. Ten minutes of MELT three times a week is all you need to reduce the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living. This revolutionary approach is backed by the latest science and acclaimed by tens of thousands of devoted MELTers around the world!

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 architectural support and optimal mind-body communication. Manual therapist 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. Using specialized techniques, a soft body roller, and small balls, MELT rehydrates the connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system, and restores space to compressed joints.

Working together with Vickie, you will learn how to:
  • Identify stuck stress in your body, a major cause of chronic aches and pains
  • Effortlessly find greater balance
  • Experience more mobility and ease of motion
  • Relieve chronic pain, reduce inflammation, and eliminate common issues such as headaches, insomnia, and bloating
  • Improve alignment, enhance athletic performance, and keep your whole body feeling great at any age.

After several years of challenging foot, hip and arm issues, private MELT/Yoga sessions with Vickiehave played a crucial part in regaining my fluidity, strength, and flexibility on many interweaving body-mind-emotional layers. 

Vickie is not only knowledgable but also kind and compassionate.  She regards and respects my whole being while guiding me through the process of allowing old wounds to transform themselves into more vibrant pieces of the whole.

Vickie’s clear and methodical instruction has made it easy for me to combine Yoga and MELT as part of my every day self care.

I look forward to each private session as she thoughtfully shares more exercises and information with me.
