MELT offers the opportunity for anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, to improve their longevity through self-treatment. The consistent results MELT yields are remarkable and undeniable. Previously such results were available only through ongoing, costly bodywork from multiple practitioners. The foundation of MELT rests in the science, treatment techniques, and pioneering research of a variety of hands-on modalities, including Leon Chaitow's and Judith DeLany's Neuromuscular Therapy, John Upledger's Craniosacral Therapy, Ida Rolf's Structural Integration, Bruno Chikly's Lymph Drainage Therapy, and Jean-Pierre Barral's Visceral Manipulation. Over the past decade, the research into connective tissue, pelvic and spinal stability, sensory motor learning, and neuroscience has expanded exponentially. Sue Hitzmann, the creator of the melt method, has partnered, collaborated, and studied with the world's most renowned educators and researchers in these fields of human science, including Robert Schleip, Jean-Claude Guimberteau, Tom Myers, Diane Lee, Elaine DeBeauport, and Gil Hedley. As the research emerged, Sue assimilated histological studies and neurological and connective tissue research, and has participated in numerous human cadaver dissections. She has integrated her discoveries with her manual, movement, and kinesthetic therapy education and conducted empirical research with thousands of clients and students. Sue's pursuits have unexpectedly led her to the profound discovery of the intersection of the nervous and connective tissue systems. Based on her understanding of the inseparable link between these two systems, she has become the first self-proclaimed neurofascial specialist. Addressing the balance within and between the nervous and connective tissue systems is central to MELT. Exciting research continues and new scientific discoveries consistently support Sue's findings, yet there is still much work to be done. In late 2007, at Harvard Medical School, the first International Fascial Research Conference brought together some of the most esteemed researchers, therapists, and educators from various scientific, medical, and therapeutic disciplines to collectively explore current research and future goals. Fascial research continues to be driven by the need for evidence-based practice, the findings of which will likely revolutionize the fields of conventional and complementary health care, fitness, and wellness in years to come. As scientific equipment allows us to look at the body on a cellular and molecular level, we will continue to learn more about the vast universe within the human body and solve the mysteries of aging, pain, and the longevity of the human organism. To learn more about emerging brain and body science, the neurofascial system, and the MELT Living-Body Model™, you are invited to attend Sue's seven-hour course: the New Science of the Human Body.
