No Pain, No Gain? NOT Truth.
Are you a runner? Do you hit a local Crossfit Box regularly? Do you go to Orange Theory like an obsessive OT fan? Perhaps you do yoga? Maybe you work out at home and love your weight lifting but also love HIIT training and therefore, you are regularly sprinting and doing all kinds of mad plyometrics. Are any or many of these appropriate descriptions of you?
If so, you probably deal with a regular amount of aches and pains. And sometimes, those aches and pains go well beyond something that’s annoying. Sometimes, when we train hard, those aches and pains – especially when combined with a busy, high-stress lifestyle, can turn into serious pain. The chronic pain kind. The kind of pain that sometimes can lead to things like Plantar Fasciitis or carpal tunnel or shin splints or knee issues galore.
If you have chronic pain like any of the above and are wondering how you deal with chronic pain issues without having surgery or becoming hooked on OTC pain meds or prescription pain meds, cheer up. We have a solution for you that is a gamechanger. (our words).
What is this solution? Check out The MELT Method. The name alone sounds like a remedy doesn’t it? Well tune in, we’re here to tell you more about The MELT Method because after we checked it out, we realized, WOW this is something- a home self-treatment solution that anyone can do themselves- to manage their ongoing chronic pain- and this MELT Method could be a gamechanger for virtually anyone with a regular fitness practice or anyone regularly participating in athletics – at high school, college or pro.
What IS this MELT Method?? According to the site, “The MELT Method® (MELT®) is a simple self-treatment designed to help you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. Just 10 minutes of MELT three times a week is all you need to become a Hands-Off Bodyworker® and reduce the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living. This full-body method of self-care can be customized to your particular needs – from improving performance and decreasing the risk of repetitive stress injuries to eliminating chronic pain, regardless of what’s causing your pain in the first place.”
We love that this is a SELF-TREATMENT situation! We hear from so many of you that are paying hundreds of dollars a week to see a chiropractor or a massage specialist or seeking relief from acupuncture or cupping, that can add up in a BIG way. Then you add on the time it takes to drive to these places there and back- -that’s a lot of time and money invested in pain management. (NOTE: this post is NOT at all suggesting anything negative about any of these therapies or practitioners– rather we are saying if you have chronic pain and could decrease the time spent at practitioners’ offices and decrease the money you spend weekly– this could be a good thing. Perhaps you still go for cupping or a massage or chiropractic care but you don’t need to do it as much, because this therapy can be done at home, any time, in private. Plus there are myriad additional sequences that you’ll love- we think- for an overall self-care practice that can aid in stress reduction)
Watch this video below to listen to the founder, Sue Hitzmann talk about what MELT Method IS:
The most common complaints we hear from you are issues with back pain, wrist pain and pain that is foot related or knee-and-below related. We hear about ankle and feet issues from you plyo-addicts and sprinters. We hear about carpal tunnel from all of you and sometimes that’s just from using our phones and tablets and laptops with poor posture….but that’s another topic. If you are lifting heavy on the regular and not watching your form or supporting your wrists, you’ll have grip and wrist issues.
People- all of this is common. But it’s likely not stopping you. It could be slowing down your progress. You need to find a way to manage and treat your pain- ideally decreasing your pain not ignoring it or making your health worse by taking prescription drugs to numb the discomfort.
We have checked out MELT Method and think this solution is THE BOMB. (our words). What could be better than learning to become more in tune with your own body and treating your pain issues at home- anytime? Cutting costs, improving pain, and adding in more down time/self-care time at home?? We say that’s a win win all around.
Sue’s team has also developed a monthly streaming service called MELT On Demand. Watch the video below you’ll see how brilliant this is. This is how you treat yourself at home– you get yourself set up with the MELT tools then subscribe to MELT On Demand and -BAM- suddenly your mobility has improved a ton and you are experiencing greater GAINS because you aren’t held back by pain. #winning
