Sue Hitzmann is creator of The MELT Method, founder of the Fascia Research Society and author of The MELT Method.
Sue’s interest in neuromuscular and manual therapies began when she was in her twenties with her quest to find a resolution to her own debilitating pain. Even top doctors and physical therapists couldn’t explain what was going on in her body. In hands-on bodywork, she found solutions she was desperately seeking. Determined to share this, she changed her focus from fitness to manual therapy and became known in New York City as the person who solved seemingly impossible pain issues.
In 2001, Sue was inspired to create “homework” for her clients, which led to the development of the MELT Method – the first-ever form of Hands-off Bodywork®.
