Shana Barry

Expert MELT Instructor
Determined to live a healthy active life free of pain? Me too! Ten years ago as my mild to moderate intermittent discomfort progressed to chronic pain and my world became really small. I travelled bi-coastally in search of relief and didn’t find it until I was introduced to the MELT Method. This method gave me tremendous relief right from the start. Now I am back to my active lifestyle with astonishing improvement in my entire well-being. I wanted to share this method with others that were living with pain, so I left my successful career in medical sales to become a MELT certified instructor. Let me share this incredible method of self-treatment and healing with you. I look forward to MELTing with you!
