Wellness Connects
Cedar Sanctuary
Movement Medicine/MELT Method Techniques

I am a Wellness Connector supporting both individual and community wellness by creating and overseeing both the Wellness Connects organization and Cedar Sanctuary (a wellness programs and mini-retreat space in Sammamish). I also teach MELT Method Techniques, and in my spare time I love organizing Move&Groove Community Dances!

Cedar Sanctuary is a Seattle Eastside oasis featuring wellness classes and mini-retreats to rejuvenate body, soul, and spirit. You can choose from a variety of preset programs or custom design an afternoon of indulgences for your special occasion or gathering.

Wellness Connects: This awesome group of wellness professionals connects and collaborate to best support individual and community wellness. WC members create a network of services from a wide range of wellness modalities, linking you to the services that you need. We also host fabulous community wellness educational and social connecting events.

MELT is Movement Medicine, and I am passionate about empowering people to simply move, perform, and feel better. You can learn easy self-care techniques using a soft foam roller and small balls for the hands and feet to reduce tension and stuck-stress, decompress joints, and improve overall alignment and  movement. Whether you’re a dancer, an athlete, or someone simply looking to move with greater ease, MELT is complimentary to any wellness program, and a proactive approach to maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. MELT feels great, and is appropriate for all levels of ability.

Move&Groove Community Dances are all-ages programs to celebrate our richly diverse community, create a sense of belonging for everyone, and have a great time together through the univerdal languages of music and movement. Community wellness.

TESTIMONIALSMELTastic! Here’s what folks are saying about my MELT Sessions:

The before and after assessments were so eye opening! I saw and felt concrete changes in my posture, circulation, and energy. Susan is not only a highly skilled practitioner, she's a passionate teacher who clearly values empowering others with information and skills. Fortunately, I'm not someone with chronic issues, but I do feel the effects of stress and all the time I spend at the computer. The MELT method not only provided immediate results, but it gave me new ways to listen to my body. I learned a ton and I look forward to more MELTing at home! -DL

At the end of class, I was feeling much more energized - I think because I was a lot less aching. And although I didn’t sleep that great, I felt so much better when I got up this morning. Usually when I wake up, my hands feel puffy/swollen and achy. But they felt awesome this morning. And I noticed that I was standing a lot taller (and looser) when in the shower. -CW

This was the best hour and a half that I have spent in a long time. Susan is well informed, professional and very enthusiastic about teaching the MELT Method Intro to Hand and Foot Techniques. Her class presentation was energized, well organized and her sense of humor made for an awesome event. I am looking forward to taking her MELT Roller class! -DL

I do the foot exercises from time to time and it has helped to strengthen and release the muscles in my feet which immensely helped my yoga practice. -MT

I took the hand and foot workshop with you a few weeks ago, and my feet have not hurt since then! I've been practicing the MELT techniques every other day since the class. It's hard to believe that has taken me from constant foot pain to no foot pain! Looking forward to another great class with you! -DH

I'm so glad that I attended. And so glad to have a substitute for my pain-producing hard foam roller! The MELT philosophy makes so much more sense. I very much enjoyed your training; it was well-paced with a nice mix of lecture and demo and practice, and an engaging introduction to the three focus areas. I especially appreciated your very generous time in answering individual questions afterwards. I feel like you know your material extremely well and are able to cherry-pick what to share as the main point as well as interesting tips as you go along. -JW

Great workshop yesterday. I am so glad I came! The true test was how I felt this morning. I feel great! I am sold.  -BK

It was terrific! She taught us all about the MELT method for hands and feet for pain-free fascia work. It makes me so excited to apply it in my running. In fact, after just one workshop, I won my 5K race today - even beat all the men! Was it from MELT? It certainly helped! Thanks, Susan! -KW

What I was hoping to get from [a similar] workshop, I got from yours. When I practiced last night it was helpful that you were so thorough. I could hear your directions as I was practicing. -JA

The session was terrific!! There are no words to adequately tell you the difference it made I want to see how I feel tomorrow and then I plan to start a daily program. I told my husband about it and I am encouraging him to call you for a private session. -LH

I'm enjoying my roller & get up 15 mins earlier to MELT before leaving for work. -BM

You are an excellent instructor. It would be great to take another class from you. -VC

I can't wait to take my next session with you. My hips, flexors, and back all feel great! NO PAIN! Just what I need for balance ... -RF

I love melting. Thank you so much for your time and expertise! It’s a life changer. -JD

You are a fabulous teacher. I followed you well and your passion shines through! My favorite line you said in class was something like… our bodies are maps of our stories and to have patience and love ourselves through the process of awareness and assessment. -LL

Thanks for your referrals. They are the best compliment!      1.425.298.6428      sitemap      MELTisms       Facebook       © Susan Creighton 2016
