Roll Away Pain with MELT Method

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Many people appreciate how much better they feel after a massage. And some people have found out that properly done, foam rolling can help you feel better, much like a massage does.

Joyce Savitz demonstrating MELT Method on rollerAccording to a recent article in Prevention magazine, “New research supports what trainers and therapists have claimed for years: Done just before exercise, the simple technique [foam rolling] can reduce muscle fatigue and soreness dramatically enough that the workout feels easier.”

In the article, Sue Hitzmann, manual therapist and creator of the MELT Method, added that, “…rolling, as part of your cooldown has been shown to cut down on post exercise discomfort.”

Joyce Savitz, Certified MELT Method instructor at Jacksonville Yoga studio, agrees with Sue, adding that the foam rolling techniques she teaches in her MELT Method sessions can ease many aches and pains by improving blood flow and restoring muscular and joint function.

Joyce has found her MELT Method sessions personally rewarding, too, because attendees frequently tell Joyce how much better they feel after a session, and call back and e-mail Joyce to share their stories of how much better they feel.

Often, people who do not learn proper MELT Method roller techniques ten to press too hard on their rollers, in an effort to get relief from their pain. Pressing too hard on their rollers can be painful; the pain relief is not achieved.

New MELT Soft Body RollerTo get the benefits of foam rolling without adding pain, Joyce recommends attending one of her MELT Method sessions at Jacksonville Yoga studio, in Jacksonville Beach, and also using a specially designed MELT Method Soft Body Roller.
