THE MELT METHOD
by Tanya Clark
From my first workshop with Sue I knew this work would change everything! I signed up for MELT teacher training the night of my first intro to MELT workshop. I’m proud to say two years later, and many hours of trainings under Sue, I’m one of her advanced MELT practitioners. I’ve had the opportunity and privilege to assist her as one of her teaching assistants for new trainees, completed my advanced training last summer in her neurostrength work for stability of the major joints, and this summer I will be doing another training, MELT for Pilates – incorporating MELT and Pilates mat work into a beautiful therapeutic realm. In my many hours of training, I have learned how to take highly abstract science and use Sue’s applicable method for changing the way my body is aging, to recover faster from my love of dance, and at 39 I’m proud to say I feel better and dance better than any other point in my life, and it is because of MELT! I’m truly blessed to pass this knowledge and work on to my clients and all of you. I’ve also recently had a major ankle injury – due to an incident with a trampoline – maybe I forgot to mention I’m a brave dancer – an Avulsion Fracture and a Grade III sprain to all the major ligaments (hey, I went big on this one!), and it is through this process I’ve been able to document how MELT helps the body heal acute trauma as well. You can read and see before and after pictures here in some of my recent blog posts. The most compelling pictures were in this particular post they truly blew me away! For me, the most important and rewarding aspect of being a trained Advanced MELT Practitioner is helping people feel better, empowering them to take the reigns when it comes to how their body is functioning on a daily basis, and closest to my heart is to help others potentially have a different outcome than my mom did. It all started with that college paper/project on how to help ease the nervous system of those suffering like my mom, although my finding MELT wasn’t in time to change my mom’s path, as she passed in December 2014 on dialysis from a very worn out body due to traditional forms of medicine, I know she is helping to guide me on my journey in helping others suffering from chronic pain and is smiling down on me!

Testimonials from MELT Clients suffering from Chronic Pain:
TO THE TOP
“After many years of having hired help go with me to shop for only a few days worth of groceries, after our MELT session, and specifically the one we added the pelvic stability work into, I went to the grocery store by myself at 7PM, which I usually don’t go out that late due to exhaustion, shopped for the whole week, and ate dinner after!”– Kate
“How it has helped me is with pain? . . . when I have it and I do some melting, the pain disappears. I also find it very relaxing, and when I do it before bed, I do seem to sleep better.”– Kathy
“MELT is life changing! The difference that just one class makes is ‘body blowing’. MELT can be as productive as any other mind, body, and spirit work used for healing.”– Bobbi Jo Faurot
“I have been taking MELT classes for 2 months and I have seen and felt a remarkable change in my body!! I feel healthy, decrease in migraines, and can move without pain and function better in everyday activities.”– Gina Read more MELT Testimonials from my personal clients
