of pain-free living!


About MELT

The creator of the MELT Method, Sue Hitzmann offers a breakthrough self-treatment system to combat chronic pain and erase the effects of aging and active living.

The MELT Method® (MELT®) is a simple self-treatment that reduces chronic pain and helps you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. Just 10 minutes of MELT three times a week is all you need to begin reducing the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living.
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. You’ll see and feel results in the first session. The ultimate goal of MELT is to improve your body’s ability to restore balance and repair itself, which can create remarkable, lasting changes. MELT offers natural pain relief, allowing you to address the true cause of chronic pain, not just mask the symptoms.

You can purchase the MELT soft roller, the MELT Hand and Foot Treatment Kit and DVD, and the MELT Method book and DVD from your local instructor (and save on shipping) or order them from the MELT Store.
