Sue Hitzmann, MS, CST, NMT, is the creator of the MELT Method ® , a revolutionary self-treatment technique
that helps people get out and stay out of chronic pain, avoid injuries, and boost athletic performance. A
nationally recognized educator, manual therapist, exercise physiologist, and founding member of the Fascia
Research Society, Sue is the author of the New York Times best-selling book The MELT Method ® : A
Breakthrough Self-Treatment System to Eliminate Chronic Pain, Erase the Signs of Aging, and Feel Fantastic
in Just 10 Minutes a Day! , which has been translated into eight languages. Her second book, MELT
Performance: A Step-by-Step Program to Accelerate Your Fitness Goals, Improve Balance and Control, and
Prevent Chronic Pain and Injuries for Life, will be published by HarperOne in April 2019.
Sue’s journey to help others began in the world of fitness. She became a group exercise instructor in 1988. In
1999, she starred in the Crunch video Boot Camp Training , which has sold more than half a million copies
worldwide and remains one of the top-selling fitness videos today. She continues to teach in some of New York
City’s top fitness facilities.
Sue’s interest in manual therapy began with her quest to find answers to her own debilitating pain, which
served as the foundation for the MELT Method ® . After receiving her Masters in Exercise Science from New
York University, Sue went on to complete thousands of hours of research, as well as certifications in manual
therapies such as neuromuscular, craniosacral, and lymph drainage. Since 1998, Sue has had a private
manual therapy practice, working with clients who suffer from a wide range of issues, injuries, disorders,
diseases, and dysfunctions.
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 ® . This groundbreaking program provides a self-care
option that addresses the cause of pain rather than offering temporary relief, such as medication and surgery.
Now with MELT ® and the products Sue personally designed – including the MELT Soft Roller, the soft
Performance Roller, and MELT Hand & Foot Treatment kit – anyone can take steps to restore whole-body
efficiency, improve performance, avoid injuries, and lead a healthier, more active life. In 2017 she launched the
streaming video site MELT On Demand and the MELT Method app to provide access to MELT’s self-care
Sue has personally trained more than 1,800 professionals from 21 different countries – some of whom are
even working with Olympic and professional athletes. She is a leading presenter for national organizations
such as IDEA, ECA, and PMA, and an accredited continuing education provider for ACE, AFAA, NASM, PMA,
Sue has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show , Nightline, Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray Show , and Live!
with Regis and Kelly , and the MELT Method ® has been featured in magazines such as SELF, More, and
Prevention. Sue Hitzmann lives in New York City.
