You may have seen Dr. Oz highlight the Melt Method last Friday. Fascinated with cutting edge research in connective tissue health, and guiding people to take control of their own health, I am happy to now be teaching my clients to MELT! Its basis on sound scientific principles, and its immediate results on rehydrating tissues and rebalancing the nervous system, led me to become a certified Melt Hand and Foot Instructor. I am introducting this to clients with excellent results. Sue Hitzman, creator of the revolutionary MELT Method explains, " I believe chronic pain is caused by dehydration of your connective tissue system. The problem is, most people don’t know what this is, so they don’t know how to resolve this common issue.
"What’s important to understand is connective tissue dehydration happens to everyone, regardless of age or activity level – every day. Even if you don’t have chronic pain, you’ve likely experienced what I call a “pre-pain signal.” Have you ever felt a little stiff or achy when you get up in the morning, but once you start moving around the stiffness subsides? That’s what I have concluded to be connective tissue dehydration."
"Daily repetitive movements and postures cause connective tissue dehydration, and over time, 'stuck stress' and inflammation. What starts out as a small ache can escalate into sleeplessness, digestive issues, anxiety or depression, and ultimately a chronic state of disarray. It’s a complex molecular and cellular issue that diet and exercise don’t address and medication can actually make worse. I believe that when you address the dehydration, your body stops sending cries for help to your brain in the form of pain."
"MELT directly addresses stuck stress in your body. It’s a simple self-treatment anyone can do at any age."
If you want to get out of pain, into energy, vitality and youthfulness, and to take control of your own health, I highly recommend MELT. Please contact me with any questions. You can find more information at www.Meltmethod.com. Enjoy!
What drives me: Inspiring people to be their personal best every day; guiding them to those "aha" moments, when the light goes on, and they accelerate towards personal goals. I aim to provide excellence in guiding people to heal themselves through movement--pilates and functional training--, to optimize human potential through movement, and to be a leader in educating and inspiring the public about health and wellness. My experience as a student at UCSF Medical School taught me a wealth of information about assessing states of health with great respect to the complex interconnected systems of the body and mind. My life as a professional dancer has allowed me to gain tremendous insight from my own body’s experience as a laboratory of injury and repair. My continuing education through pilates, personal training, the Gray Institute, and other functional medicine paradigms, add to the resources I bring when approaching each individual client. I have tremendous respect for the body’s ability to heal and restore homeostasis, or balance. I aim to guide people through a positive, pain free movement experience that is revitalizing, healing, empowering, and which advances the body's healing power, strength, mobility and overall performance; to help people get "unstuck" from a spiral of "dis-ease" and propel them forward to an optimal healthy, vital state of well being; to guide people to realize that even in the presence of injuries, or illness, we can move ourselves to optimal health, and live in a state of fitness, with lean, strong bodies and vibrant, strong minds, aligned and well. I aim to guide people to understand there are alternatives to surgery and/or medications and that efficient movement -- together with strategic nutrition, and positive lifestyle changes,--heals the body; to promote the philosophy that we can up regulate expression of the body's DNA, hormones, and biochemistry—the body’s intrinsic healing system-- on a deep cellular level, leading to enduring and profound advancements in health and, therefore, function.
And I just love seeing people light up with the joy of movement!!
