Chain Reaction for Back, Hip, Knee Pain

Chain Reaction is what happens in your body every time you move, and it is based on something called Applied Functional Science. If you have knee pain it is most likely due to your hip or ankle not functioning correctly. Your knee is a simple hinge joint and only bends one way. Your hip and ankle need to be firing correctly in all three planes of motion to keep from stressing your knee. Similarly, your back pain could be happening because of your hip. This class will teach you how to restore functional stability in all three planes of motion using simple exercises that "turn off" your pain.

MELT Away Pain
The MELT method is a self-treatment that can address the cause of pain, enhance the healing process and erase the negative effects of aging and stressful living. It actually stimulates the results of manual therapy to bring your body back to a more ideal state by directly enhancing your postural awareness, rehydrating your connective tissue, and calming your autonomic nervous system. You will use small, non-toxic balls specifically designed to create global, lasting changes in your body. The first time you MELT, you will see and feel a difference. Over time, you can transform how your body looks and feels. Learn this powerful self-treatment method from a certified MELT instructor who has seen much success in her patients' ability to independently regain pain-free posture and movement. The MELT method has appeared on shows hosted by Dr. Oz and Rachel Ray. Class fee includes a $50 materials fee.
