MELT Method

What is The MELT Method?

The MELT Method®, by Sue Hitzmann, is a simple self treatment technique that provides a revolutionary approach to pain-free living. Through a carefully coordinated series of movements and the use of specially designed balls and a soft roller, the MELT Method rehydrates the connective tissue (also known as fascia), rebalances the nervous system, and restores space to compressed joints.



Whether you're sitting at a desk, dancing on Broadway or bending over to pick up your kids, the repetitive stress of daily living (including physical, mental, emotional and environmental stressors) can create "stuck stress" in the connective tissue. This tissue, also known as fascia, surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone, and organ in the body. Natural wear and tear causes dehydration in the connective tissue, which interferes with the nervous system’s ability to regulate itself and slows down the body’s innate healing process.

MELT is for anyone who wants reduce the negative effects of the aging process and live a pain-free life. Younger adults, dancers, and athletes use MELT to maintain fit, healthy bodies and achieve optimal performance without experiencing debilitating wear and tear. For those in their 50s, 60s, and beyond, MELT can help you maintain an active, mobile, and independent lifestyle.

If you are pregnant, injured, post-surgery, overweight, sedentary, out of shape, have limited mobility, chronic pain, knee/hip replacements, or bone disorders — you can still MELT.


The Melt Method evolved from techniques created by renowned manual therapist Sue Hitzmann. She wanted her clients to be able to experience a simulation of her body work at home. As a result, she came up with a series of movements using balls and a soft rollers which profoundly improved her clients' health and healing time and empowered them to identify issues as they came up and take better care of themselves.

In its initial stages, MELT was an acronym for Myofascial Energetic Length Technique. In the past 12 years, Sue Hitzmann has evolved the technique so much that it has outgrown the acronym and is now referred to as The MELT Method®.
