A solution to maintaining a healthy, active, pain free, healthy body —for a lifetime.
A picture is worth 1000 words...here is a painting presented to Kim as a thank you for MELT. Many, many thanks to my client Amy!
The painting shows how I feel during class~ I come to Kim's studio all bound up, tight and tense. And then, through the stretches, everything begins to release and relax, leaving me calm, instead of tense. The feeling in my body completely transforms during class and I always feel so much better when I leave.
The painting is just my way of thanking you for introducing me to MELT and helping me learn the process. I really do think it has made such a huge improvement in my life. I am so thankful that my friend told me about MELT and that I found you. Thank you for being such an awesome teacher and for helping me learn this! It has really made a difference in my life. So, thank you!!!
Myofascial Energetic Length Technique (MELT) is a newly crafted self-help set of activities that are a perfect companion for Pilates or Yoga practitioners. Participating in the MELT classes, at my Stretch & Strength studio, will help you learn these powerful treatments that are fast and easy to do.
The MELT Method is a simple do-it-yourself treatment. You learn to use a series of small balls and soft foam rollers. These props help stimulate the neurofascial system, the body's connective tissue (fascia) and surrounding nerve endings.
The neurofascial system includes your bones, joints, and connecting muscles. MELTing helps to decompress your neck, spine, pelvis, and can open up and enliven your feet, hands and wrists.
Chronic pain develops when tension is trapped in joints. MELTing can rehydrate fascia, releasing the stored tension and help you achieve a balance in your nerve receptors.
Melting before Pilates, Yoga or as your day begins, can prepare your body to perform at its optimal levels, but most importantly, helping you work towards a pain-free active lifestyle.
