The MELT Method® (MELT®) is a simple self-treatment technique that is designed to reduce chronic pain and help you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. When your connective tissue is hydrated and free of stuck stress, your body functions more efficiently. Although MELT can be combined with other therapeutic treatments and exercise workouts, it is unlike any other modalities because it directly addresses the neurofascial system. *
What is the Neurofascial System?
Your neurofascial system or “fascia” as people say, is a web of connective tissue that surrounds and runs throughout your body. Fascia is like scaffolding for your body- the scaffolding for your cells. It supports, protects and stabilizes every structure in your body- which includes where skin adheres to bones, supporting your organs, nerves, and muscles.
The primary role of this system is proprioception- which is your brain sensing where your body is in space without using your eyes. The other role of fascia is to physically support the musculo-skeletal system. Fascia can detect information on tension, stretch and vibration and sends signals to the brain to use the appropriate muscular action. When this system is running smoothly it clearly enhances our movement capacity, promotes longevity, injury prevention and healing capability.
Did you know that fascia is 9X more sensory rich than muscles are?
Did you know that the fascial system is the body’s largest sensory organ?
Did you know that through the chains/trains of fascial web, nerve signals can travel up to speeds as fast as 700 mph! Compared to only 170 mph through the neurological system alone.
