Melt Method


Dr. Gates received her training in the MELT Method directly from the founder and creator, Sue Hitzmann, and has been making this amazing healing technique available to patients in Charlottesville, VA since 2007.

The MELT Method is a simple self-treatment therapy, founded & created by manual therapist, Sue Hitzmann. This amazing technique reduces chronic pain, and helps you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. New research reveals the missing link to pain-free living: a balanced nervous system and healthy connective tissue. These two components work together to provide our body support and optimal mind-body communication. MELT directly addresses these two systems in a way no other self-treatment can, including diet and exercise.  Just 10 minutes of MELT three times a week is all you need to reduce the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living.

The ultimate goal of MELT? To improve your body’s ability to restore balance and repair itself. This creates remarkable & lasting changes. MELT offers natural pain- relief, not just a masking of the symptoms.

The more you MELT, the better you feel.

The best part of MELT? It's a self-treatment technique that you can do anywhere, anytime and the affects are cumulative! The more you do MELT, the better you feel.
