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!

MELT Method for Hips, Knees & Feet: A Self-Care Workshop

Do you have stiff, creaky or painful knees? Do you experience chronic hip or buttock pain that sometimes travels down the upper legs or into the low back? Appropriate for all levels, this workshop teaches you 10-minute self-care MELT sequences that you can do at home to treat chronic knee, hip and foot pain from trauma or issues related to (but not limited to) IT band syndrome, hip clicking, osteoarthritis, meniscus tears, ligament sprains, patello-femoral conditions, plantar fasciitis or bunions. Using specialized balls of varying densities and soft body rollers, MELT works by rebalancing your nervous system and rehydrating your connective tissue — the fascia that surrounds and invests your nerves, organs, joints and muscles. You will learn techniques not covered in the MELT Method book for working safely on the shins, lower and upper IT band, front of thighs and deep hips, and will gain insight about using MELT to improve sports performance and activities of daily living.
