review of Sue Hitzman's Melt Method
The MELT Method:
Getting Rid of "Stuck Stress" in the Body
Stress, according to various sources from the Centers
for Disease Control to Harvard Medical School to the Mayo Clinic, is the main factor of up to 95 percent of
all illness and disease.
Such stress can be unconscious, caused by the hidden destructive memories,
unconscious beliefs, and negative images stored in our bodies and, I believe, our spirits. This is the stress that
The Healing Codes and prayer excel in healing.
There is other "stuck stress" that can come from the ways we sit, stand, walk, and
otherwise move and position our bodies. For that kind of stress, there is a wonderful method I've begun to use that
is yielding wonderful results, for me, my friends, and my clients.
After doing just some of the MELT techniques for a couple of months, I feel
better, enjoy more energy, and the headaches which had begun to bother me, along with some strange nerve symptoms,
have mostly gone away.
So it's time I told everyone about this method that I believe is a perfect
complement to The Healing Codes.
It is called the MELT
Method, developed by Sue Hitzman, in her book by that
name. It is "a breakthrough self-treatment system to eliminate chronic
pain, erase the signs of aging, and feel fantastic in just 10 minutes a day!" Now available in paperback, this
New York Times bestseller features a new foreword by the author, fully updated images throughout
the text, and the latest scientific data that supports the effectiveness of the program.
OK, so again, sounds too good to be true, right?
That's why I took 2 months to tell you about it. Even though I got immediate
results the first (and every) time I did it, I wanted to read the book, give it time, hear from other
So what does MELT do? Simply put, through some gentle techniques using special
balls and/or a roller, it rehydrates the connective tissues in your body.
Connective tissue supports all your organs, your skeletal structure, your muscles,
and every cell. In fact, as I studied Sue Hitzman's
book and put it alongside the models of the energy systems in
the body, I can't help but wonder if connective tissue is the physical mechanism through which energy, or the
body's electricity, flows.
And we know that water is a conductor of electricity. So doesn't it make sense
that the places where our energy gets blocked, would be those places where our connective tissue is
At any rate, through these gentle techniques, you end up rebalancing the central
nervous system regulators and boosting your body's natural healing and repair mechanisms.
It is the perfect complement to The Healing
Codes. The Healing Codes neutralize the stress from negative memories,
images and beliefs, and MELT erases the "stuck stress" that shows up in the body not only from negative memories
and the like, but from the repetitive movements from daily living that also produce "stuck stress."
In my case, spending hours sitting in front of the computer was taking its
toll. I began to experience neck pain and headaches, even some tingling in my extremities. I saw a new medical
doctor about this, and she immediately suggested I see a neurologist.
I then saw my wonderful integrative medicine doctor, who affirmed that I could try
MELT and wait on the neurologist.
Well, after doing just some techniques, the headaches are gone, the neck pain is
gone, and no more strange nerve sensations.
These things were likely caused not by "heart issues" (though I did use Healing
Codes for anything that came up), but by the stressful body positions of sitting at a desk too much.
(I am saving up for one of those really good ergonomic chairs, but in the
meantime, 15 minutes of MELT per day seems to do the trick.)
So I highly recommend the MELT products, especially now that the latest MELT DVD has come out. If you haven't
gotten anything yet, the MELT Method
Super Bundle gives you everything you need (book, MELT Method DVD, roller, Hand and Foot Treatment Kit
and DVD), for less than I paid for them all individually.
Like The Healing Codes, MELT is something that you can do on your own in just a
few minutes a day. Because it gets at the source of "stuck stress" in the body, it allows the body to heal a number
There are MELT
Maps in the book and DVD that specifically address which
techniques to use for various issues, including:
- pain due to trauma
- injury or surgery
- chronic neck pain
- chronic low back pain
- upper body pain
- lower body pain
- pelvis or hip pain
- diagnosed systemic conditions such as cancer, MS, Parkinson's, chronic
fatigue, dystonia, lupus and numerous others
- neurological or immune disorders and cancer
- connective tissue disorders such as CFS, Fibromyalgia, and others; spinal
- even pregnancy and postpartum.
The author has you go nice and slow, telling you exactly what to do each week,
then giving a maintenance plan. (The book is a bit confusing, due to some repetition, but everything is step by
step. That's why I recommend the DVD, so you can actually be taken step by step and stop and pause if you need to.
Or have have someone read you each step from the book as you take time to do it and learn it, especially on
the soft body roller.)
So I recommend MELT as yet another do-it-yourself, easy tool that will help you
eliminate on a daily basis the stress that can be so deadly. Get the MELT Method
Super Bundle, which includes everything. or perhaps just
the Hand and Foot Kit first. (There are step by step
instructions and a DVD with this.) Then you can get the soft body roller and the MELT Method
DVD, which allows for the most areas to be rebalanced, rehydrated, and
decompressed (the three techniques you use with MELT).
