Sue Hitzmann, MS, CST, NMT, is a nationally recognized somatic-movement educator and manual therapist. Her decades of practice, research, and study of anatomical science and alternative therapies culminated in the creation of the MELT Method®, a revolutionary approach to living pain-free for a lifetime.
This groundbreaking self-treatment program utilizes Hands-Off Bodywork® to support the health, fitness, and quality of life of any person at any age or activity level. She is the author of the best-selling book The MELT Method (HarperCollins, 2013). The MELT Method® directly enhances body awareness, rehydrating connective tissue, and decreasing the body stress that accumulates from daily living.
Hitzmann got her start in the fitness industry as a group exercise instructor in 1988, before beginning her manual therapy practice in 1996. Over the past two decades, she has taught in some of the top clubs in New York City, including Reebok Sports Club/NY, Equinox, Crunch, and the JCC in Manhattan. Her 1999 video Boot Camp Training has sold more than half a million copies worldwide and remains one of the best-selling fitness videos today.
