MELT Method for Low Back Pain: A Self-Care Workshop

Learn how to release compression of your spine from your neck to your low back and get out of pain! This workshop takes you through the self-treatment plan used in the recent MELT clinical research study on people with non-specific low back pain. The same plan is recommended for most people with chronic low back pain from trauma or issues related to (but not limited to) herniations, bulging or slipped disks, spinal fusions, pinched nerves, or back spasms, as well as those with foot, knee, hip or neck pain. MELT boosts your body’s ability to heal by calming your nervous system and rehydrating your connective tissue. MELT is for anyone who wants to live pain-free!
