I’m so grateful to have found MELT. It’s been easy and cost-effective, releasing me from joint pain and giving me a dependable way to relax deeply. I’ve enjoyed both immediate and long-lasting results.
Here’s my story, and why I’m inspired to share this art and science of self-care with you.
Several decades ago…
Several decades ago, my feet decked out in platform shoes, I took a step backward and realized I was about to step on the box of jewelry I’d made from buttons recently inherited from my mother. Attempting to avoid crushing the box I’d filed on the floor, I severely twisted and sprained my left ankle.
I went to the chiropractor for a few treatments, wore a brace, did the exercises he recommended. My ankle healed within a few weeks. Later, if I felt any ache, I took flaxseed oil and that took care of the inflammation. Or did it?
Years later, the ache returned, flaxseed oil or no. And my left shin started to feel like it was detaching from my knee, to the sound of lots of clicking.
I eventually took myself to the best physical therapist in town, according to several friends and health care providers. The exercises she gave me to strengthen certain muscles in my butt seemed to resolve the problem — and then they didn’t, apparently making matters worse.
After a year of physical therapy, I heard about MELT from a friend and fellow yoga teacher. I invested in the MELT balls and soft roller. In less than a year of MELTing, my ankle and knee are pain-free. My left foot and leg fully take my weight; my left side is as grounded as my right; my lower body is rebalanced.
