Sue's journey to help others began in the world of fitness. In 1999, she starred in the Crunch video Boot Camp Training, which has sold more than half a million copies.
Sue's interest in manual therapy began with her quest to find answers to her own debilitating pain. After receiving her Masters in Exercise Science from New York University, Sue went on to attain certifications in manual therapies.
In 2001, Sue was inspired to create "homework" for her manual therapy clients, which led to the development of the MELT Method - the first-ever form of Hands-off Bodywork™. Now with the bestselling book The MELT Method and the products Sue personally designed - including the MELT Soft Body Roller and MELT Hand & Foot Treatment kit - anyone, anywhere, can take steps to restore whole-body efficiency and lead a healthier, more active life.
