The Melt Method

I LOVE the Melt Method!  Sue Hitzman has created a method to release myofascial tension.  She sells books, videos, melt balls, and foam rollers.  I keep the melt balls in my car and work on my hands before and after work, keeping them fluid and supple.  I also use the foam roller at home to release tension in my back and neck.  Check her out!
