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.

This one-of-a-kind treatment method rehydrates the connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system and restores space to compressed joints.

how does MELT work?

Daily living creates stress, imbalances 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 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 practitioners 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.

how do I sign up for a MELT session?

You will be guided by a certified MELT Instructor in any of the following sessions:

  • Private one-on-one therapeutic “treatment” session
  • In a duet of 2 people for semi-private attention
  • Group of friends or coworkers in your home or workplace
  • 4-class series workshops focused on specific areas
