The M.E.L.T. Method™ (MELT) is a revolutionary approach to pain-free living that is changing the way people take care of their bodies. MELT (Myofascial Energetic Length Technique) is a one-of-a-kind method that is backed by science and approved by thousands of satisfied clients. It uses specially designed foam rollers and MELT hand and foot balls to empower people of all stages of life to take control of their aging process.
This technique has helped my body make it through half marathons, and intense workouts. It helps me unwind when my body is tight, or warm up for performance. It helps me stay calm when I get stressed and often improves my sleeping at night. I have watched it ease my grandfather’s arthritis, relieve headaches and neck pain, improve digestion, and bring more comfort and ease to many stressed out and injured bodies. I have seen posture improve in just a few sessions and the aches that came with it disappear.
What benefits does MELT offer?
It is a great first stop for all of those minor aches and pains. The best part is that it is something you can do for yourself anytime you need it. Great for dancers, runners, all athletes, people who sit all day, or are nursing an injury, and really anyone with fascia who's ever been uncomfortable, or experienced aches and pains!
- flexibility and mobility
- the results of exercise
- sleep and digestion
- overall well-being
- aches and pains
- wrinkles and cellulite
- tension and stress
- risk of injury
Who is MELT for?
MELT is for anyone who wants to slow down the aging process and live better, longer. MELT is for active younger adults and athletes who want to maintain a fit, toned body and achieve optimal performance without debilitating wear and tear. MELT is also great for those of you trying to unwind those tight "office bodies".
Mom and Baby Group Fitness Classes: Babies welcome, not required!
Work Out, Baby is a postnatal fitness class incorporating strength, toning, flexibility, and core work designed to get your body back into shape and free of the aches and pains of motherhood. Let us make sure your baby stays content, while you build up a good sweat, rediscover your abdominal muscles, strengthen your pelvic floor, open those tight shoulders, relieve those achy back muscles, and tone your whole body. This class is the perfect combination of the lengthening effects of yoga, the detailed core work of Pilates, the intensity of a great gym workout, and the therapeutic effects of a good PT session all designed to rebuild your foundation and help you feel like yourself again. Drop-in’s available if space allows ($25), but the series is designed to be taken all together. The full series includes challenges and homework to encourage rapid progress and to form lasting habits.
Work Out Baby is meant for precrawlers. Please contact me if you would like to form a smaller group (2-3 people) training session or private training session with crawlers. A studio, a home or the park are all great locations to train with crawlers.

Zoe's classes are refreshing! There's nothing like her out there. As a mother of two little ones, I need focus work to support my own body to be able to tackle the everyday orders of being a Mother. Her style is very unique as she combines yoga, pilates and the m.e.l.t. method which gracefully takes you on a journey back into your body. Her teachings are warm, heartfelt, and playful. Her classes are dynamic and facilitate empowerment and education to each individual through her thoughtful and creative sequencing. After each class you leave balanced, grounded and renewed. Zoe is a wonderful teacher and I am grateful for all her insights.

What do you get when you combine a focused small group training session with a kids play date? A Workout Play Date! A guilt free treat for your own body, while your child enjoys playtime. We'll use balls, bands, weights, rollers, gravity, and your own amazing body to get in a nice balance of cardio, strength, core, stretching and fun for your body. This is not a stroller class- kids play, crawl and run and the small size assures more individual attention. Intended for creepers, crawlers, and toddlers or as a new challenge after completing the WOB series; see "Work Out Baby!" for indoors with pre-crawlers for the newly postnatal body. Group size limited to about 4-7 in general.
Have more than one child? Has it been a while since you’ve worked out? No problem, we’ll catch you up in no time. With focused attention we can find the right balance for YOUR body. Worried how your child will do? You never know till you try, so sign up for your first trial session today.
These sessions are meant for crawlers- pre-school aged children. If your baby is younger talk to me before you get started with us. I also teach other indoor classes more specific to the newly postnatal body. See “Work Out, Baby”
Fridays at Bodycraft 10:30-11:30am starting November 16th
$25 drop-in or 6 class card for $140

Get rid of Office Aches!
What are office aches? That stiff back, achy tight shoulders, legs that feel like lead, feet that you don't even notice anymore, and feeling groggy all the time. Your brain will work better if you pay a little extra attention to your body occasionally. Give me an hour and I'll give you several myofascial release techniques, stretches, and simple exercises that you can use throughout your workday to get rid of those office aches in just a few minutes a day. (Get acupuncture and shiatsu for tune-ups, but learn how take control of the day to day stuff on your own for those in between times.)
For Runners/ Weekend Warriors/ Athletes/ Dancers
Stop putting up with all those aches and pains and do something about it. I'll show you how you can unwind your body before and after a long run (on intense workout) to keep you running for years to come without destroying your body.
