A muscle soothing creation may help after exercise and reduce pain from inflammation.

The M.E.L.T. was created by Sue Hitzmann. M.E.L.T. stands for myofascial energetic lengthening technique. The treatment was recently featured on ABC’s Los Angeles affiliate. An article on the website quotes Hitzmann as saying:

"M.E.L.T. is a self-treatment technique. It simulates the benefits and results of what I do as a hands-on body worker," said Sue Hitzmann, creator of M.E.L.T. "We use the balls on the hands and the feet to try to eliminate some of the tension and inflammation that occurs from active living and aging."

The device works on nerves and connection tissue, which becomes damaged due to cellular dehydration. The dehydration occurs with aging and eventually causes joints to become stiff and muscles to ache. The device can be used by individuals at home and makes use of various sized balls that can be pressed, rolled or rubbed on both hands and feet to “bring back mobility and reduce pain of bunions, plantar fasciitis and arch issues." Hand melting fights aches all the way up to the neck.

The M.E.L.T. technique brings relief to hips, knees, lower back, shoulders and more.
