Greetings!! This month I want to Bust’a Myth about what it takes to get out of pain. On my journey OUT OF PAIN I learned it was a myth to give a bodyworker or practitioner more power than myself for knowing what my body needs in order to heal. I know for sure that YOU are the “star” of the show and practitioners are supporting players. It is important to utilize health practitioners, but you know your body’s history better then anyone and you have the answers. In the words of Glinda, the good witch from the Wizard Of Oz, “you have always had the power.” What we do, as health educators, is hold up a mirror for you to see your body in a new way and help you make sense of the information you intuit. When I work with clients I will offer my experience and knowledge for them to consider, but ultimately you have to listen to your body’s messages to know what is best. The MELT Method teaches you to tune in to your body and empowers you to learn your body’s unique language.
In case you need more evidence of the effectiveness of MELT, take a look at these before and after pictures from a clients’ session. Before Melting her upper back(on left) she is straining to achieve the pose. Her neck is not aligned, her shoulders are up around her ears. After 10 minutes of Melt she has more range of motion in her upper back and her neck and shoulders are in alignment.
