One on One Class

Mary offers private instruction in The MELT Method, MELT Neurostrength, and other fascia focused techniques at The Seattle Center for Structural Medicine in Ballard. MELT sequences can be put in a particular order to create a “MELT Map”, which addresses your particular body alignment issues and sets you up for your goal activities. You may also study with Mary as part of the therapeutic services offered at the clinic.

Do you or a friend love rock climbing? Enhance your peak performance, pun intended! And, equip yourself with great techniques to help reduce pain or soreness after your climbing or bouldering adventures. In this 2-hour workshop you will learn simple ways to stimulate your connective tissue (and fascia) to get better muscle and nerve performance to both increase your strength and range; and, to expedite your recovery. You will receive a handout of the techniques so that you can perform this sophisticated "movement map" before or after you climb.  $40 | 10am-12pm

Foam Rolling 101 - Saturday July 28
Do you have a foam roller in the corner gathering dust at home? Heard its good for performance and recovery, but not sure how to best use it? Come to this 2-hour workshop to learn how to apply compression and tension to your fascial fabric to stimulate your tissue at the cellular level. This restores the healthy spring and gliding surfaces making nerve and muscle tissue more healthy. This enhances both performance and recovery. You will receive a handout at the class so that you can recreate the 20-minute routine at home. Come learn the latest, best techniques and make that roller your friend for life. $40 | 9:30am-11:30am
