The Recipe

I was introduced to the Melt Method a few years back, and if you had told me back then that a little blue ball would have such a big impact on my life, I wouldn't have believed you. Then, a couple years passed by, and much like most things in my life, I had to (re)discover it in my own time. If I’ve learned anything, it’s that we have to trust the timing of things.

So, here I am, passionate about sharing the Melt Method (MELT). Why? Because, quite simply, I love how it makes my body feel. I’ve dealt with bouts of chronic pain since my late twenties, and I've used a lot of different natural approaches to help get out of that pain and stay active: massage, myofascial release, chiropractic, acupuncture, exercise, stretching, yoga and a number of other traditional, self-care tools. All of these things have their place and have helped me throughout the years, and most still do.

But then, in 2015 I felt called to start learning about a system of our bodies that we don’t hear much about: the connective tissue system, or as some call it, the fascial system.

At the time, I didn’t know why I was being led to learn about the fascial system, but I now know that my body needed a more gentle approach to start healing on a deeper level, and that's what led me there. I learned that the secret to working with fascia is that in order to get out of pain, you don’t have to inflict more pain on a body that’s already in pain.

This philosophy is at the core of MELT, and it's one of the reasons I love it so much - and rely on it. MELT is not only gentle, but it’s simple to learn and accessible. I appreciate that I can do it at home and that it helps me tap into what I’m feeling in my body, I love how I notice right away the changes I’ve made, I'm in awe of how it helps me restore balance and stability, and I love how it supports my body’s ability to heal on a daily basis.

You’ve surely heard this saying:

“Time heals all wounds.”

But if that’s true, how can pain ever become chronic?
