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 at Hudson Valley Community College or in private one on one sessions.

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 for Pain, Grip, Balance, and Gait!
Learn The MELT MethodTM Hand & Foot Treatments to address pain globally. These techniques are powerful. You will see and feel a difference immediately.

MELT can improve your golf swing or any swinging sport like tennis, or baseball. It can also improve your balance, how you walk, and even help with neuropathy, carpal tunnel, and plantar fasciitis! If you have pain or decreased sensation it is most likely that your neurofascial system is in need of repair. Diet and exercise are important, but they don’t address this all-important system.

Learning how to decompress the joints in your feet and hands can change how your knees, low back, and neck feel as well as improve your grip, your balance, and how you walk. There is even a MELT 50-second facelift! Taught by an expert who has seen success with her patients regarding many issues (neuropathy, balance impairment, chronic pain).

You can MELT your hands and feet easily and quickly; even in your office!

MELT Away Back, Hip, Neck, or Shoulder Pain Without Drugs!
Learn how to use The MELT Soft Foam Roller to completely change your postural alignment in just minutes! You will feel pain MELT away right in class! Be empowered to self-treat your body for a lifetime.

If you have pain it is most likely that your connective tissue is in need of repair. Are you uncomfortable lying on your back? Do you have trouble finding a comfortable position in which to sleep? You may have imbalances in your masses (parts touching the floor) and spaces (part off the floor). The MELT Method rebalances you to allow pain free positioning and function. Diet and exercise are very important but they do not address injured fascial tissue!

The MELT Method is a unique approach that directly impacts your neurofascial system, bringing your body back to a more ideal state of balance. You will learn to use a specialized MELT soft foam roller to perform specific techniques that create global, lasting changes in your body. Taught by an expert who has seen her patient's benefit in profound ways for years.

This class series will teach you how to decompress your neck and back, rehydrate and lengthen fascial lines, and restore postural balance and symmetry. There are even techniques to address cellulite!

MELT Away Back Pain Class:
This comprehensive class will allow you to directly affect the areas that lead to chronic back 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, 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.

This class series will teach you, step by step, the 4-Week MELT Back Pain Treatment Plan. This plan was reported in a clinical trial to significantly relieve chronic low back pain and improve flexibility in just 4 weeks!

Move Without Pain Classes

  • Healthy Hips
  • Healthy Shoulders
  • Healthy Knees
  • Healthy Back

Functional movement without pain! Move Without Pain can be learned in a class setting or a private one on one 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 concept is taught at Hudson Valley Community College in three class series for specific body areas. Call 518-496-1265 for more information and/or to schedule a private session.

Move Without Pain 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. You will then progress your knowledge and learn matrix movements for lifelong functional strength and pain-free well-being.

Move Without Pain will ensure you achieve pain-free movement and lifelong success! Experience 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.

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 method can be learned in one on one private lessons (via online live video) or in an online platform; all in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Call 518-496-1265 for more information and/or to schedule a private session.

You will also learn why your pain keeps coming back (if it does) and how to prevent that. Once the Total Motion ReleaseTM System is learned, you have a pain and injury relief tool to use for the rest of your life!
