The founder of the MELT Method Sue Hitzmann, who is a craniosacral therapist, devised the method to give her clients techniques they could carry out themselves between treatments. Some of my clients have noticed that they can go longer between treatments since using the MELT Method.
Whether you are recovering from an injury, an athlete who want to enhance your performance, someone who sits at a desk all day, a new parent feeling stressed, someone who works with your hands or are on your feet all day, then the MELT method is for you.
My youngest client using the MELT Method is a 6 year old boy who plays football and my oldest is an 83 year old with arthritis, so the MELT Method is really suitable for all ages as part of a self care routine or to get you out of pain.
