MELT

 "Learn to MELT 4 week series"  Class dates:  March 9, 16, 23, & 30, 2015  6:30p-7:30p $60/series     In MELT classes we will use a soft MELT roller and MELT balls to help you get out of and stay out of pain, slow the signs of aging, and improve performance in other physical activities you do. In MELT we work with the connective tissue system – a system diet and exercise don’t address. Through positive compression and tension techniques, you will rehydrate your connective tissue and rebalance your nervous system resulting in improved alignment, muscle timing, and balance while reducing inflammation, joint compression and pain. If you feel stiff in the morning, have neck, back, or shoulder pain, trouble sleeping, or feel great and want to stay that way, this class is for you.  MELT is the missing link to wellness!   MELT Rollers and MELT Hand and Foot Kits will be available for purchase from the instructor on the first day of class and are encouraged as homework and handouts will be given for at home use throughout the series. Each class will build on previous classes, introducing many of the MELT moves in the MELT Method book and some that are not in the MELT Method book. MELT rollers are $65 and MELT kits are $45 plus tax. Cash, Checks and CC accepted. Shaina Thurmon RN is a certified MELT instructor trained directly under Sue Hitzmann the creator of the MELT Method.  In addition please bring water to each class.  All participants should be able to get on and off the floor and the roller with little difficulty. If your situation prevents you from this, please consider booking a private session so modifications can be made to meet your needs.   Visit www.meltmethod.com to learn more about the MELT Method. If you have any questions about the MELT Method or the series, feel free to email Shaina directly at shaina@meltmypain.com
