Testing out the Melt Method Fitness System of Foam Rolling

 

What is the Melt Method?

 
For those of you that haven’t heard about Melt Method, it’s a foam rolling technique designed to decrease fascial restriction in the body, helping you feel open and energized all the time.

Created by Sue Hitzman (who I also went to a workshop with here in San Francisco), Melt Method aims to rehydrate connective tissue and help everyone: from athletes to those with chronic pain.

Below is my video review of the Melt Method (Click here if you prefer to read the review).

Melt Method Fitness Review

Today I’m reviewing a product I really love – the Melt Method.

Many of you take free yoga classes online with me. But what you may not know is that I’m actually an myofascial release therapist, and I’m incredibly interested fascia, which is the interconnective tissue that connects your bones and muscles – everything in the whole body. It’s what makes you look like you. It gives you your shape, literally!

Melt Method is also all about fascia. So, of course, I got really interested in this product early. I’ve owned it for at least two years, and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. They now have teacher trainings and teach Melt rolling classes across the country!

It’s really been fun for me to see this product blow up 🙂

So to back up and give some context: the idea with myofascial release, whether you see a myofascial release therapist – someone like me who actually does bodywork, or do foam rolling, is to rehydrate your connective tissue. Your connective tissue easily gets dehydrated from injury, repetitive/habitual movement, and that leads to tension and chronic pain.

We don’t won’t that!

It’s easy to rehydrate the connective tissue with the right tools, and Melt Method is basically tool set for doing this.

The Melt Method hand and foot balls come in a little package like this, and they have a DVD, so you can follow along and it’ll tell you exactly what to do.

Basically, it involves pressing the little Melt Method balls into the soles of your feet and your hands to rehydrate your connective tissue. You’ll feel the effect all the way up your legs and arms. The hand and foot treatment retails for $39 online, here’s the link.

My experience with this product has been really positive – I use it on my feet all the time.

I’ve yet to really master it using it on my hands. I’m not sure exactly why this is…

There are three different balls: a soft one, a hard one, and then a little hard one. It’s easy just to roll these around on the floor under my feet when I’m talking on the phone or watching TV. For some reason, it’s just not as intuitive for me to be sitting at a desk or to want to roll out my hands, although the few times I have done that, it’s felt fantastic.

A really cool thing in the DVD is that she has you bend down and touch your toes before using the Melt Method ball. We all have tight hamstrings throughout the day. Then she has you do the foot exercise with the balls. When you later reach down and touch your toes, the back of your legs feels so much more open.

It’s literally like a magic trick showing you how opening the connective tissue in the soles of your feet is effecting your whole body and giving really giving you flexibility in your legs.

If you buy this product, you’ll watch the DVD that comes with the kit once and then you’ll just remember it. Another thing I love to do is take the Melt Method balls in the car. Obviously not if I’m driving, but if I’m a passenger, I like to roll my feet on them. You can also roll your feet on them under your desk at work and just give kind of give yourself a foot massage throughout the day.

Who doesn’t want that?

The Melt Method foam roller is about the same size as this regular old foam roller except it’s blue and it’s made out of softer material, so it can really open up that connective tissue, rehydrate it.

It just feels a little bit softer then a regular foam roller and it’s more effective (fascially speaking).

So if you haven’t invested in a foam roller yet, don’t get a regular foam roller, just get the Melt Method foam roller.

If you love meditation, bodywork, or just doing little things throughout the day to help your connective tissue to feel better, you will really love this product. I highly recommend it.

Let me know in the comments what do you think about Melt Method. Are you buying it, considering buying it? What are your concerns? I want to hear from you.
