MELT classes & workshops
MELT away your pain! The MELT MethodTM, created by Sue Hitzmann, is recommended by Albany's Center for Rheumatology for successful treatment of chronic pain.

MELT can be learned in a class setting or a private session.

MELT classes are a way to self treat pain, dysfunction, and postural imbalances. Your connective tissue is a most amazing structure and when it is hydrated and healthy you feel wonderful. When it is dehydrated and compressed you feel pain and your movement is stiff and limited. You will discover how imbalances in your body are created and how they produce pain and limit mobility. You will also learn how to self treat these imbalances, as a manual therapist would do, but in the comfort of your own home, on your own schedule. You will see and feel a difference the very first time you MELT! Have fun and feel better! MELT 1 & 2 classes are taught at Hudson Valley Community College.

MELT Away Your Pain 1 Class:

MELT Away Your Pain 2 Class:

MELT Away Neck Pain Class:
This comprehensive class will allow you to directly affect the areas that lead to chronic neck pain. Your postural symmetry, habits, and positions throughout your day lead to 'stuck stress' and imbalances that create pain. You will learn how to access the fascial lines that become dehydrated and compressed due to prolonged sitting and desk/computer work, repetitive motions, texting, or even playing musical instruments. You will treat your body using specially designed MELT balls and a MELT soft foam roller to rebalance, rehydrate, and decompress your neurofascial system.

Your postural symmetry, habits, and positions throughout your day lead to 'stuck stress' and imbalances that create pain. You will learn how to access the fascial lines that become dehydrated and compressed due to prolonged sitting and desk/computer work, repetitive motions, texting, sports, or even playing musical instruments. You will treat your body using specially designed MELT balls and a MELT soft foam roller to rebalance, rehydrate, and decompress your neurofascial system.

Move Without Pain Classes
Functional movement without pain! Move Without Pain can be learned in a class setting or a private session.

Move Without Pain Classes are designed to help your body re-establish pain free movement. The information is based on Applied Functional ScienceTM and has been taught to practitioners and trainers by the Gray Institute for decades. Your core is actually from your nose to your toes and every movement you make creates a chain reaction. Did you know that decreased mobility in the ankle can cause a shoulder issue for pitchers? Or that your knee is rarely the problem? It's usually the hip or ankle forcing extra stress on the knee. Your knee is a fairly simple hinge joint (like a door) and it is at the mercy of the hip and the ankle. Did you know if your rib cage has limited rotation this can lead to low back pain, hip pain, neck pain and more?! Discover how the body really works and get all those wonderful muscles and joints working in unison the way they were designed to do, without pain! This class is taught at Hudson Valley Community College in a three class series. Call 518-496-1265 for more information and/or to schedule a private session.

Move Without Pain Level 1 will introduce you to the concept of functional movement in all 3 planes of motion and how to "tweak in" or "tweak out" to enhance function and turn off pain or improve sports performance.

Move Without Pain Level 2 will progress your knowledge of movements and teach you step matrix movements for lifelong functional strength and pain-free well-being.

Move Without Pain Level 3 will ensure you achieve pain-free movement and lifelong success! This class teaches a workout that I use myself for maintaining full pain-free function and strength.

Total Motion ReleaseTM Classes

Total Motion ReleaseTM (TMR), developed by Tom Dalonzo-Baker, can quickly reduce any pain or injury using just one or two simple motions. It can reduce even the most stubborn pain. Maybe you have a pain from a sport injury or from typing on the computer. Maybe you have no clue why it hurts.This class will teach you how to test specific motions and exercise them in a way that addresses imbalances in your body.

The Fab 6 motions are part of the Beginner Level used within the Total Motion ReleaseTM Radical Pain Relief System. These 6 motions are used initially and then you move to the Intermediate Level of the program which is taught in TMR 2. You may be surprised at how effective just these Fab 6 motions can be at resolving your pain. Once the Total Motion ReleaseTM System is learned, you have a pain and injury relief tool to use for the rest of your life!

Total Motion ReleaseTM works on musculoskeletal or joint pain, hamstring (or any muscle) strain or stress, restriction or dysfunction. Your pain can be a chronic issue, an acute issue, an issue from surgery or injury, or an issue that is neurological in nature.

This class is taught at Hudson Valley Community College in a three class series. Call 518-496-1265 for more information and/or to schedule a private session.

Total Motion ReleaseTM 1 will introduce you to the TMR concept and teach you the Fab 6 Movements.

Total Motion ReleaseTM 2 will move you into the intermediate level which teaches the Fab 6 Movements rotated in and out.

Total Motion ReleaseTM 3 will move you into the intermediate level which teaches why your pain keeps coming back (if it does) and how to prevent that. This class provides knowledge that will last for a lifetime of effective self-treatment whenever you have pain or injury.
