The MELT Method is simple self-care using soft balls and a soft body roller to reduce the negative effects of aging and an active life. The MELT Hand and Foot Treatments are “global” treatments, where we treat the hands and feet to stimulate a whole body response using small balls. The MELT Soft-Foam Roller is designed for localized work throughout the body, using very specific techniques to achieve results.
