Course Description

Participants will learn about and experience the MELT method as a simple self-care solution that anyone at any age can use to help reduce or avoid chronic pain symptoms, improve balance and alignment, and feel better overall.  The workshop is appropriate for people of varying ages however, the ability to get up and down from the floor is necessary.  Upon successful completion, students will gain an understanding of the primary cause of pain, which is a missing link that diet and exercise do not address.
