MELT may sound like something you’ve been waiting for all winter, but it’s really a simple self-treatment technique that helps people get relief from chronic pain.
Offered by local Orange resident Tara Graham, MELT helps you stay healthy, youthful, and active. MELT reduces chronic pain and the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by repetitive motions. Specialized techniques rehydrate the connective tissue, rebalance the nervous system, and restore space to compressed joints.
Daily activities create physical stress and tension within your body as the repetitive stress of daily living gets stuck in the connective tissue, which surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone, and organ. MELT creator Sue Hitzmann refers to this as “stuck stress.” When stuck stress accumulates, it causes dehydration in the connective tissue, which can then interfere with the nervous system’s ability to regulate itself.
MELT 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, and over time, MELT heightens the body’s ability to repair and heal itself, which can create remarkable lasting changes. MELT is especially helpful for arthritis, chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, digestion, sleep issues and chronic illness. It also improves posture, mobility, balance, and muscular efficiency.
