What is MELT?

MELT is a self care method designed to get you out of pain

MELT improves performance in any sport, and creates ease in daily activities

MELT is gentle manual self care

A 10 minute daily routine which hydrates the sliding architecture of the connective tissues

Erase pain and tension in your hands, forearms and neck brought on by everyday stress, overuse, age, and repetitive stress which causes carpal tunnel syndrome.


Learn to MELT and discover how the connective tissue in your body gets dehydrated, the common aches and pains it can cause, and how to re-hydrate this essential system in our bodies for vibrant health, better sleep and pain-free movement.


Melt is a perfect pre-workout warmup, and is great pre or post bodywork self care.

You will learn several new techniques and concepts related to foot and leg health, such as how to treat plantar fasciitis, how to work gently to rehydrate connective tissues and eliminate pain, movements and hand techniques that are soothing and also some that are stimulating.


We will also look at the 6 meridians of the feet and legs to become knowledgeable about which organs systems we are affecting, and which points to avoid during pregnancy. 


Foot and Leg massage is sometimes the forgotten or skipped over part of a treatment. It is especially beneficial to many people who have an injury or illness that affects their feet and legs.  All ages benefit from this massage.  Athletes, dancers, runners, those on vacation and those who suffer from the affects of aging, edema, and injury will appreciate the attention given to their feet and legs.  


Recent studies have shown that foot massage reduces pain and anxiety experienced before and after surgery.

 Love and Destiny Cards Class

The Science of the Cards is a powerful tool for self-discovery and inner transformation. Most students use it initially to help forecast their future, understand their past and unravel the many facets of their human relationships. However, this system can be used most effectively as a guide to plan and execute many important aspects of our life. A person fully utilizing the information found in this system can walk forward in life with full confidence, knowing that he or she is in harmony with the universal energies and the cycles of his or her own life.


In this workshop, you will learn about your individual Birth Card and Planetary Ruling Card, your relationship to others, and your life’s plan in the Book of Destiny. Learn how the cards can help you more clearly define your life’s purpose and how they provide you with a blueprint for continual success.


Bring your life plans and dreams to this class and lets see if we can get you on track to your highest potential.


Instructor Caryn Boyd Diel has been a student of this system of divination and card reading for 20 years and studied with author Robert Lee Camp. She offers Private readings to individuals on Career, Health, Relationship Compatibility and Yearly life planning.
