Want to get MELTed?
Want to get M.E.L.T.ed?
I know, I know you might be asking… What does M.E.L.T. mean?
I thought the same thing when I first heard about it two years ago. I had the opportunity to take a M.E.L.T. class from the creator Sue Hitzmann at IDEA World in 2010 and was blown away at how amazing and refreshed I felt afterwards. M.E.L.T. stands for Myofascial Energetic Length Technique. I know, I know… a lot of BIG words!
Let me explain what the BIG words mean. Do you every wake up in the morning and have aches and pains? Do you ever reach your arm up high in the air and feel the rest of your body talking to you, specifically from the rib cage down? When you set your feet down on the floor in the morning after getting out of bed, do your feet ache? Or maybe you just have this nagging pain, that no amount of stretching can take care of? What most likely is speaking to you is your connective tissue.
Your connective tissue is the glue that holds the whole body together. It’s interwoven into all of the layers in our body. It attaches our muscles to our bones, distributes forces, resists forces, and has nine times more nerve endings that our muscles. Our connective tissue makes us into the shapes that we are, establishes our posture, and communicates between all the systems of the body. OUR CONNECTIVE TISSUE IS AWESOME AND IT NEEDS OUR ATTENTION.
The M.E.L.T. Method is a way to self-treat and bring our connective tissue the attention it needs. Through a series of specific techniques we can awaken our gunked up connective tissue, rehydrate it through certain movements and massage techniques, allowing us to redistribute fluid flow and keep our systems running at full speed.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the M.E.L.T. Hand and Foot Instructor Training with the creator Sue Hitzmann, and I am excited to share this new way to rejuvenate the body and gear us up to participate more whole-heartedly in the movements we love without missing a beat.
If you would like to join me for the very first FREE M.E.L.T. Class it will be held on Friday April 20th, 2012 at 5:30pm. The class is limited to 10 participants, and is on a first come first serve basis. To reserve your spot, please contact me via phone/text 702-285-4549. Allow me to show you how to use the M.E.L.T. method to make you feel better, move better, and decrease stress?
