Whether you’re an athlete or live an active lifestyle, the concept of optimizing your body to its utmost performance while preventing chronic pain and injuries is an essential element that can be done prior to (maximizing results) and after your workout (to reduce recovery time, aches and stiffness). Over the past year, we have worked out utilizing the MELT Method which has a Performance Roller that has changed our approach to fitness! This method focuses on whole-body communication, rebalances the nervous system, rehydrates connective tissue and releases compression in joints. Developed by Sue Hitzmann (a manual therapist and connective tissue specialist in NYC), creator of the MELT Method, MELT Performance includes a series of techniques that are based in science and includes the use of the soft Performance Roller and the Performance Band. By going through her exercises, you improve your athleticism, have an increased range of motion generate core strength, and you have joint stability. We’re fans of the customizable nature of this program as you can target an array of sequences including NeuroCore Stability, Lower Body Stability, Upper Body Stability, and Bonus Neck Stability. Whether you follow along via DVD, or On Demand (they just released their app), this is a workout that you can do from the comfort of your home, office or from your hotel room. In addition to MELT Performance and MELT Method, there is also the MELT Hand and Foot Treatments that allows your body to feel its effects in just minutes and can be done with MELT Treatment Balls that are made specifically for these activities.
MELT focuses on maintaining a painfree life by ensuring that there is a balanced nervous system and healthy connective tissue. Fundamentally, this self care targets these needs by providing your body with the support it needs as well as optimal mind-body communication. Going through these techniues improves the body's ability to restore balance and to repair itself,
which is key to lasting changes that you will see through your life.
