MELT Level 3 instructor Julie Ann Moore
As a gymnast from an early age, I have always been interested in health and fitness and turned to Pilates as a way of maintaining a toned body and helping me achieve a greater awareness of my body.
Following a total hip replacement, I was left with chronic back and hip pain, due to the new hip leaving me with a significant leg length discrepancy. Weekly Pilates and physiotherapy, together with prescription pain medication helped me to keep moving, although the pain never left me. Then I was introduced to the MELT Method© and I was intrigued how this hands-off method could relieve the pain I’d had for over 3 years; I really could not believe the difference doing these techniques made to my chronic pain. As a self confessed sceptic, I wanted to know more, the science, and how it worked.
I therefore undertook the MELT Hand & Foot training in New York, with the inspiring Sue Hitzmann MS, CST, NMT and it all started to make sense. At the training Sue explained in detail how the connective tissue system works and the effect that it has on the body and, most importantly, how the MELT techniques can reduce chronic pain and help you to stay healthy, youthful and active for a lifetime. During the training, after a MELT session with Sue, I experienced my first full pain-free day in over three years, I was convinced!
Since then I have gone on to train in the use of the soft roller and neuro-strength techniques and can offer full MELT Method sessions. I am fully qualified to advanced MELT Level 3 and run beginner, improver and advanced MELT classes and have been teaching MELT for over 4 years.
MELT is now my go to method for keeping active and pain free and I have completely stopped all pain medication and only visit my physio to say hi!
MELT is now an everyday part of my life, 10 minutes a day and I keep pain free.
Let me help you discover how the MELT Method can help you relieve pain and stay healthy and active.
