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. Just 10 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 hundreds of thousands of devoted MELTers!
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. New York City–based 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 four different small balls, MELT rehydrates the connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system, and restores space to compressed joints
In her New York Times bestselling book The MELT Method, currently published in eight languages, Hitzmann has brought this easy self-treatment to more than 200,000 people around the world – and now it’s your turn.
Who is MELT for?
MELT is for anyone who wants to slow down the aging process and live pain-free. For those in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and older who want to stay active, mobile, and independent – MELT is a must. MELT is also for active younger adults and athletes who want to maintain a fit, healthy body and achieve optimal performance without debilitating wear and tear. MELT is truly for everyone!
Even if you are pregnant, injured, post-surgery, overweight, 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.
What benefits does MELT offer?
MELT creates results you will see and feel in the first session. Over time MELT heightens your body’s ability to repair and heal itself, which can create remarkable, lasting changes.
- alignment & posture
- the results of exercise
- joint mobility
- sleep & digestion
- overall well-being
- aches & pains
- tension & stress
- the risk of injury
How does MELT work?
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 and free of stuck stress, 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 approach directly treats these two systems – including nutrition, exercise, or meditation.

Why should I MELT?
How often should I MELT?
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.
