The Melt Method changed Dee's life. Since 2014, Dee has been a devoted student, believer, and now, a teacher, of "The Melt Method", a treatment technique designed to help you reduce pain (chronic or otherwise), stay healthy and balanced (literally) and remain youthful in appearance and movement.

Around the turn of this century Sue Hitzmann, a bodyworker/massage therapist and connective tissue specialist in New York City, began the journey of developing a program to achieve what she had discovered to be the secret to living a truly pain free life: a balanced nervous system and healthy hydrated connective tissue. This technique is relatively simple to learn and has a significant positive effect on improving flexibility, alignment and posture, joint mobility, sleep, digestion, and results of exercise. Consequently, it then reduces; aches and pains, tension and stress, wrinkles, headaches and risk of falling or other injury.

It works by treating both your connective tissue and nervous system with small balls and a soft foam roller which then allows the water that we do drink (and we often don’t drink enough) to actually help our bodies to perform as it should. From post injury recovery, neck/back pain, insomnia and digestive issues to simply looking younger and feeling fantastic, Melt has something for everyone.

Whether you are a weekend warrior, a young competitive athlete, a sedentary “Boomer“ who sits too many hours in your day, MELT is your answer and Dee can show you the way.

This technique is relatively easy to learn and has significant positive effect on myriad bodily issues. It offers natural pain relief - addressing the true cause of pain and not just the symptoms.
