While getting a good stretch feels amazing, you sometimes need a bit more for relief in your hips. The Melt Method uses self-myofascial restorative techniques that simulate hands-on therapeutic practices.

"The hip joint is small, but its motion is vital to efficiently transmit load from our upper to lower body as we move," says Sue Hitzmann, MS, neuromuscular therapist founder of the Melt Method in a YouTube video.

In the Melt Method Lower Body Sequence, Hitzmann guides us through a series of moves that help to decompress the hips while also relieving knee and back pain.
