New: MELT Classes
Starting March 19, 7:15pm

MELT helps people move, perform, and feel better. Using a soft foam roller and little balls for the hands and feet, MELT is an easy and gentle self-treatment to release tension and stuck-stress, re-balance the nervous system, and improve overall alignment and movement.

Whether you’re an athlete or someone simply looking to move with greater ease, MELT is a proactive approach to maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. Bonus: MELT feels great!  

Due to space restrictions, class size is limited to 19 people.
