IMG_2094 IMG_2105Why should I MELT?

MELT quickly rehydrates connective tissue and allows the body to release long-held tension and stress that leads to chronic pain. MELT is easy to learn and offers results you will see and feel the first time you try it. Changes in alignment, flexibility, energy, mood, and performance occur within only a few sessions. Best of all, your body feels great long after you MELT! The results that MELT provides were previously available only through ongoing, costly hands-on therapies.

Now you can be your own Hands-off Bodyworker® and be in control of your health.

How often should I MELT?

MELT is so gentle that you can do it every day. Yet all it takes is just 10 minutes, three times a week, to experience immediate and long-lasting benefits. Drink a glass of water before and after you MELT to achieve the maximum results.

When you exercise, MELT before strength training to improve muscle performance and joint alignment or after a cardio workout to erase joint compression and stiffness and enhance muscle recovery. People who MELT regularly find that they want to exercise more often. It’s just more fun to move when your body feels good, has more energy, and is free of pain.

I’ll teach you everything you need to know about how to take care of your connective tissue, improve alignment, increase mobility, balance and more.

What the Heck is the Neurofascial System?

Shannon Willits Sarasota Pilates Blog, Sarasota Pilates Classes Leave a Comment


Although MELT is a complementary self-care technique that can be combined with other therapeutic treatments and exercise workouts, it is unlike any other modalities because it directly addresses an entirely different system of the body. MELT is to the neurofascial system (nervous and connective tissue system) what exercise and rehabilitation are to the musculoskeletal system. The scientific principles and direct self-treatment of the neurofascial system are being introduced to the general public for the first time by it’s creator Sue Hitzmann and MELT. The MELT Method is gaining a lot of media exposure and has been featured on Dr. Oz, ABC Nightline, Rachael Ray and more…and for good reason, IT WORKS!

Adding MELT to your current routine can boost the results of whatever else you’re doing. If you get hands-on therapy, such as massage, bodywork, chiropractic, or physical therapy, MELT helps to prolong your practitioner’s intervention and lets you practice self-care between sessions.

Come see what all the excitement is about this Sunday at 10 am.

MELT is for anyone who wants to slow down the aging process and live pain-free. For women and men over 40 who want to stay active, mobile, and independent – MELT is a must.

Even if you are injured, post-surgery, overweight, pregnant, sedentary, out of shape or have limited mobility, chronic pain, knee or hip replacements, or bone disorders – you can still MELT. It’s the best starting point for any exercise and wellness program.

Ready to learn the secret to longevity? Come to the MELT Method Intro Workshop on Sunday, May 22nd at 10 am at Sarasota Healing Arts (corner of Arlington and Tuttle). Sign up and reserve your spot, equipment and free MELT ball.

Want to Learn How to Tap Into Your Body’s Natural Healing Abilities?

IMG_0422The MELT Method and How it Works

Daily living creates stress and tension within your body. Physical stressors may range from sitting at a desk to running a marathon. Emotional, mental, and environmental stressors also put strain on your body.

The repetitive stress of daily living literally gets stuck in the connective tissue, which surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone, and organ. “Stuck stress” accumulates and causes dehydration in the connective tissue, which interferes with the nervous system’s ability to regulate itself and slows down the body’s natural healing process.

This creates a domino effect that begins with aches and stiffness and leads to common health issues such as neck and low back pain, headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and injury. Accelerated aging and chronic health problems can follow, leaving us with limited options such as medication, surgery, and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle.

When the connective tissue is hydrated, your body functions more efficiently and natural healing occurs daily. MELT is a breakthrough technique that directly addresses stuck stress and slows down the aging process by rehydrating the connective tissue and rebalancing the nervous system. No other self-care method directly treats these two systems – including nutrition, exercise, or meditation.
