Yesterday, I presented MELT to a fibromyalgia support group. After a brief description of MELT, I let the method do the talking and did the MELT foot treatment with the group. We used to soft balls only, and MELT did not let me down. The participants reported that it made them feel better, not only in their feet but also up towards their lower backs.
We then proceeded to a brief demo on the foam roller where I had the participants assess their bodies first. We used the re-balanecing technique of diaphragmetic breathing, and yet again, the participants reported back to me that their bodies felt better as a result.
Obviously, the nature of fibromyalgia mandates a very gentle approach but I was happy to see that MELT is a modality which provides a viable option.
