By Lucrecia Martinez, CPT, CES, FMT In 2010, I received a difficult diagnosis: a left hip labrum tear with hip impingement. I was now not only a personal trainer specialized in working with patients with chronic pain, but also a patient and chronic pain sufferer myself. I would also face, like my patients, big decisions about how this pain would alter my life. Until then, my passion in life had been dancing. My husband and I met dancing. We...
As the sun rose over the vast desert skyline in Southern Utah, the temperature changed more than 20-degrees from 7 a.m.-9 a.m. I looked out at these ancient red mountains near Snow Canyon, just 90 minutes away from the stunning Zion National Park. I felt a sense of calm and grounding come over me. I’m recalling the 5th consecutive time we’ve held the MELT Instructor Training at the Red Mountain Resort. In the 10 years of sharing MELT and...

By Dr. Peter Abaci Being healthy doesn’t just happen. It requires work and dedication. Likewise, effectively managing pain also takes special effort and commitment. When you have a chronic condition like fibromyalgia or back pain, you can’t expect to just wake up one day and be rid of all that ails you.

By Dr. Peter Abaci The human body was designed to move, not sit at a desk or lie still all day. In fact, our bodies thrive on movement. On a microscopic level, movement triggers the production of many hormones and proteins, squeezes blood through capillaries, “cleanses” the joints, maintains muscle strength, keeps tendons supple, helps control blood pressure and blood sugar, strengthens the bones, enhances the immune system, and more. Having a...
I recently had another appearance on “The Rachael Ray Show.” I have to say, she is amazing. I don’t know how she does it. Each day she tapes three shows, manages all of the personalities on her show with a smile, and her energy is simply unwavering. This time, Rachael and I chatted about the mishaps leading into summer that make us look and feel old. I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news but aging is happening to us all and knowing some...
It goes without saying, the human form is abundantly complex. So much that the use of metaphors and simple life stories are frequently the only way to dilute it’s profound elements of connection to allow us to comprehend just how much we simply don’t know about the sustainability of good health and function. Over the past 17 years of my life – to which I am frequently reminded how fast time moves, I often have to sit with my own writing, spend...
I have great news. The IRB (Institutional Review Board) approved the very first MELT Low Back Pain Away Study. In the upcoming months NJIT (New Jersey Institute of Technology) will embark with us to initiate this study.  It’s a big step for MELT as I’ve spent so much time and energy over the past two decades learning and researching anything related to pain, fascia, aging, and the nervous system. This has led me down an amazing path to helping...
