Back 2 Normal is currently one of the leading studios in the Tampa Bay area offering a revolutionary self-treatment technique called The MELT Method®.
What is MELT?
MELT is unlike any other therapy or fitness class you have ever experienced. It is a simple self-care technique that reduces chronic pain and helps you stay healthy, youthful and active for a lifetime. Ten minutes of MELT three times a week is all you need to reduce the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living. MELT is backed by the latest science and acclaimed by tens of thousands of devoted MELTers around the world.
New research has revealed the missing link to pain-free living: a balanced nervous system and healthy connective tissue. These two components work together to provide your body architectural support and optimal mind-body communication. This one-of-a-kind treatment method rehydrates the connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system and restores space to compressed joints.
What benefits does MELT offer?
MELT creates results you will see and feel in the first session. Over time MELT heightens your body’s ability to repair and heal itself, which can create remarkable, lasting changes.
Alignment and posture
Muscle performance with exercise and sport activities
Recovery after exercise or sport activities
Sleep and digestion
Aches and pains
Tension, stiffness and stress
Wear and tear on the body
Who is MELT for?
MELT is for anyone who wants to slow down in the aging process and live pain-free. For those in their 40s, 50s, 60s and older who want to stay active, mobile, and independent, MELT is a must. MELT is also for active younger adults and athletes who want to maintain a fit, healthy body and achieve optimal performance without debilitating wear and tear.
MELT is truly for everyone! Even if you are pregnant, injured, post-surgery, sedentary, out of shape or have limited mobility, chronic pain, or bone disorders, you can still MELT. It’s the best starting point for any exercise and wellness program.
How does MELT work?
Daily living creates stress and tension within your body. Physical stressors may range from sitting at a desk to running a marathon. Emotional, mental, and environmental stressors also put strain on your body.
The repetitive stress of daily living literally gets stuck in the connective tissue, which surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone and organ. “Stuck stress” accumulates and causes dehydration in the connective tissue, which interferes with the nervous system’s ability to regulate itself and slows down the body’s natural healing process.
This creates a domino effect that begins with aches and stiffness that leads to common health issues such as neck and low back pain, headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and injury. Accelerated aging and chronic health problems can follow, leaving us with limited options such as medication, surgery, and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle.
When the connective tissue is hydrated and free of “stuck stress”, your body functions more efficiently and natural healing occurs more easily. MELT is a breakthrough technique that directly addresses “stuck stress” and slows down the aging process by rehydrating the connective tissue and rebalancing the nervous system. No other approach directly treats these two systems, including nutrition, exercise and medication.
Is MELT like yoga, Feldenkrais, Pilates, reflexology or physical therapy?
MELT is unlike any other technique because it directly addresses an entirely different system of the body. MELT is to the neurofascial system (nervous and connective tissue system) what exercise and rehabilitation are to the musculoskeletal system.
What should I expect in my MELT session?
Utilizing specialized techniques, you will be guided by a certified MELT Instructor using a soft body roller and three small balls to release the accumulated stress of the day and feel an immediate change in your body after the first session.
Has MELT been reviewed by experts?
Yes, MELT has been reviewed by internationally respected doctors, neuroscientists, and connective-tissue researchers, including Ben Domb, M.D.; Tom Myers; Gil Hedley, Ph.D.; Robert Schleip, Ph.D.; and Jean Pierre Barral, D.O. Each expert has recognized that MELT is grounded in scientific principles and offers extraordinary benefits. MELT is being used by hundreds of practioners in fitness, sports, wellness, rehabilitation and hospital settings.
Why should I MELT?
MELT quickly rehydrates connective tissue and allows the body to release long–held tension and stress that leads to chronic pain. MELT is easy to learn and offers immediate results that you can see and feel the first time you try it. Changes in alignment, flexibility, energy, mood and performance occur within only a few sessions. Best of all, your body feels great long after you MELT!
The results that MELT provides were previously available only through ongoing, hands–on therapies. Now you can be your own bodyworker and be in control of your health. MELT complements physical therapy, massage, yoga, Pilates and other exercise programs.
How often should I MELT?
MELT is so gentle that you can do it every day. Yet all it takes is 10 minutes, three times a week to experience immediate and long-lasting benefits. Drink a glass of water before and after you MELT to achieve the maximum results.
When you exercise, use MELT before strength training to improve muscle performance and joint alignment or after cardio workout to erase joint compression and stiffness and enhance muscle recovery.
People who MELT regularly find that they want to exercise more often. It’s just more fun to move when your body feels good, has more energy, and is free of pain.

What our clients are saying about MELT
“Just a short note to let you know that after finishing my 10 days of Laser therapy and the start of the MELT therapy on my hands and my feet have really proven to have a profound impact on my daily life. The wonderful feeling of waking up each morning without pain, inflammation and swelling makes me realize that I am on my way to being ‘Back 2 Normal.'”
“My drive home (2.5 hours) was comfortable….though my body felt a slight “buzz”. I also awoke in the night and felt that my body was “buzzing”! The MOST significant thing I noticed, was that I felt very mellow….which I hadn’t expected. You had mentioned that “MELTing” effects the parasympathetic system, and that must be what I felt. Lovely! Generally, I felt stretched out. Especially across my chest and enjoyed the process.”
“At the age of 63, I’ve been plagued with advanced lower lumbar degenerative arthritis for over ten years. For the past three and a half years I’ve regularly been treated through a pain management clinic recommended by my physician. I experienced multiple epidurals, medial branch blocks, and radio frequency ablation on both sides of my spine. This was all combined with daily stretching exercises and at times appointments for physical therapy. With all of this, I would still end up on pain medications and/or visits to the ER because I would have such spasms I physically could not move and would be in excruciating pain. Needless to say, I was totally frustrated and depressed. I then heard about the MELT method and located Lisa Chase. After introducing me to it’s basic premise and giving me my first hands-on session, I understood what the concept behind MELT could do for me. While the changes were subtle, there was a positive change in my overall assessment in various areas of my body. Three months later, I continue to MELT regularly, am on no pain meds, and have not needed any visits to my doctor. Am I pain free, “no”. However, the most important accomplishment for me is I’m feeling the best I have in an extremely long time, managing my pain and therefore, able to live my life with much more gusto. I attribute this to being a faithful follower of the MELT method.”
