Sue Hitzmann, MS, CST, NMT Creator of the MELT Method®

Sue Hitzmann is the creator of the MELT Method, a simple self-treatment technique that helps people get out and stay out of chronic pain. She is a nationally recognized educator, manual therapist, exercise physiologist, and founding member of the Fascia Research Society. Sue is the author of the New York Times best-selling book The MELT Method, which has been translated into eight languages and helped over 200,000 people lead a healthy, pain-free life.

Sue's interest in neuromuscular and manual therapies began in her twenties with a quest to find a resolution to her own debilitating pain. When top doctors and physical therapists couldn't explain what was going on in her body, Sue found solutions in hands-on bodywork. Determined to share this manual therapy, she developed a series of lessons and routines that became MELT.

Sue has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, Nightline, The Rachael Ray Show, Good Morning America, and Live! with Regis and Kelly, and MELT has been featured in publications such as SELF, More, Prevention, and the New York Times. She leads workshops and trains instructors worldwide.
