Release stuck stress with MELT Over a decade ago, Sue Hitzmann was at the height of her career as an international fitness presenter and instructor. She appeared to be in perfect health, yet she was experiencing debilitating pain in her foot. With a master's degree in exercise science and advanced training in neuromuscular therapy, she thought it would be easy to find out what was going on in her body, but even the most prominent doctors and physical therapists couldn't explain what was wrong. Although she was only in her twenties, Hitzmann's career was threatened and her quality of life was in decline. Hitzmann learned the hard way that diet, exercise, and muscular strength are not the foundation of a healthy, pain-free body. As she sought the true source of her pain, she radically changed her focus from fitness to hands-on bodywork. In her quest to live an active, pain-free life, she became fascinated by the emerging science of connective tissue, or fascia, which surrounds all aspects of your body, including your muscles, bones, nerves, and organs. The researchers she met were discovering that connective tissue-the system of the body that supports, protects, and stabilizes-was responsive, adaptable, and renewable. What Hitzmann came to realize is that connective tissue dehydration is the underlying cause of the daily aches, stiffness, and strain that leads to pain, as well as weight gain, sleep problems, and many other seemingly unrelated issues. Through her personal exploration and private practice, she developed the MELT Method. MELT can help you fall asleep more easily and sleep more soundly, have more energy during the day, improve your posture, reduce stress and tension, shed excess body fat, and reduce cellulite. While it may seem too good to be true, it's worked for more than 50,000 people. And now it can work for you. Live your best, most youthful and vibrant life possible. Free yourself of chronic pain and be healthy and active with MELT!

With her revolutionary MELT Method, Sue Hitzmann is making a healthier, pain-free body accessible to anyone with a few minutes to spare. Countless other programs focus on strengthening muscles or increasing flexibility, but MELT (Myofascial Energetic Length Technique) is the first to recognize the crucial role of the body's connective tissue. Through a series of easy, precise movements-using simple equipment like soft foam rollers and small balls-this groundbreaking program quickly rehydrates connective tissue, making it more elastic and allowing the body to release long-held tension. MELT also helps decrease accumulated stress in the nervous system, which causes most common aches, pains, and chronic symptoms. It's like getting all the benefits of a great massage yet it lasts longer and you can do it on your own!During her years as an exercise physiologist and manual therapist, Hitzmann began to realize how many of her clients lived with pain-the result of injury, illness, childbirth, and the repeated activities of our day-to-day lives. But her techniques are so effective because they don't just relieve pain symptoms, they address the cause of pain (which may not be what you think it is!). Along the way, MELT can also improve posture, aid sleep and digestion, minimize cellulite, and reduce stress and tension. MELT has helped Sue's clients and students avoid surgery, shed excess body fat, regain mobility and flexibility, and even progress from "bad knees" to marathon training. Now anyone can benefit from the same techniques that have made MELT a red-hot word-of-mouth success.
