More about the training:

In the MELT Hand and Foot Instructor Training, you’ll learn the revolutionary science behind the MELT Method and gain a new understanding of longevity and body functionality. Discover new research about connective tissue (fascia) and the nervous systems – and the crucial role they play in alignment, stress, chronic pain, and the negative effects associated with aging.

Explore the inner workings of the living human body that aren’t addressed in traditional movement education. Far beyond diet, exercise, or sports training, the New Science of the Human Body™ will completely change your views on aging, health, and longevity.

You’ll learn practical ways to apply this science immediately through the MELT Hand and Foot Treatments – and how these simple self-treatments can improve your body’s ability to restore balance and support cellular repair and regulation, which can create remarkable, lasting changes in just a few minutes a day.
