“This experience was amazing! We loved it. The staff were really friendly and the lesson was easy to follow and really fun to do!”
THEY’RE CLEVER, FUN LOVING, SPONTANEOUS, KIND AND GENEROUS.
When we created Melt, our aim was to deliver a series of massage techniques couples could safely follow along to at home without the need of any special equipment.
Most couples at some point in their relationship have given each other a back rub. Melt offered couples a series of structured massage sequences they could follow along to. Wanted to create something that couples could pick up easily, something they could do on date night that wont hurt their hands, and still make their partner melt.
We didn’t expect couples to come back with this much amazing feedback!
Thank you everyone for your kinds words and support – keep sending through your reviews, we love to hear how you’re using Melt to better your marriages and relationships!
“This is Dan (the husband), we love the part about the ‘mushy mushy Yum Yum bits’. “
Neither of us are big “gift” people, so when holidays and birthdays roll around we tend to go to dinner, buy something practical (we would have bought anyway), or do nothing at all. We’d rather spend quality time with each other and chalk that up to our biggest gift to one another. However, we had a baby and my husband was completing a demanding season in a new job to support us all so I wanted this Father’s Day to be special. In the past we both have expressed how we wish we were better at massage. When I saw a Father’s Day special from a blogger I follow I thought it would be the perfect gift! Time together learning a new skill that will benefit each other was the gift that keeps on giving. My husband LOVED it! It allowed us to have mini date nights and quality time with each other after putting the baby to bed. It created more opportunities to be intimate and reconnect after a busy day. The videos were easy to follow and surprisingly NOT cheesy or scandalist. The perfect balance of professionalism and fun! And no more sore and tired thumbs!! This would make a wonderful wedding gift or a fun gift to new parents.
PS – this is Dan (the husband), we love the part about the “mushy mushy Yum Yum bits”. She gives a satisfactory grown and I get a giggle, because I think I’m funny when I say it in my Australian accent.
Thank you so much for giving my wife and I a tool to reconnect.
“I love these massage techniques. I am a massage therapist.”
I love these massage techniques. I am a massage therapist. I needed something that didn’t feel like work when I was massaging my husband. I also love having massage done on me and it was great to find something easy that he can do and feel comfortable doing. Thanks for making these videos available.
“My partner and I enjoy that we can view the videos and put the techniques to use from anywhere and in our own space and really connect. “
My partner and I enjoy that we can view the videos and put the techniques to use from anywhere and in our own space and really connect. We have just started using the videos and so far they have helped with the foundation basics in very little time; looking forward to developing our skills as we put more techniques in practice. Thank you for developing these series in a simple to follow format.
“We’ve only studied the very basics of our Melt massage class, and already notice a wonderful difference.”
We’ve only studied the very basics of our Melt massage class, and already notice a wonderful difference. We used to give each other massages on the bed, without oil, and using the “pinchy-pinchy” method. It was hard to find a comfortable position for our faces, our hands wore out quickly, and we ended up frustrated. Now we know what we were doing wrong, and with a few easy adjustments, our massages have become much more rewarding! We look forward to using the rest of the classes as our date nights at home, and are so excited to learn more techniques to help us feel relaxed and connected as a couple!
“My family calls a wimpy, horrible back rub a ‘mom massage’.”
My husband has loved massages since he was a youngster (used to bribe his little brother to give him back rubs) and I have given him “massages” since we started dating 37 years ago. Problem is that I’m a horrible masseuse. My family calls a wimpy, horrible back rub a “mom massage”. When I saw the offer on engaged marriage for your video series it was a perfect gift to give my husband. We started watching the videos together and they are informative and I’m sure I can give a better massage after I finish watching the whole series.
“We just had a baby and my husband and I needed a new way for us to connect.”
I love that the Melt Videos are easy to follow along with and very simple! We just had a baby and my husband and I needed a new way for us to connect. I saw this from one of my friends on Facebook and thought it was the perfect thing.
Our biggest problem before the videos was probably knowing how to make a massage feel good for both people. I get tired from massaging incorrectly and being improperly positioned but the videos fixed those problems. My “aha” moment was when we tried the techniques, they were so simple to follow along with and learn that it made the whole thing easy and not scary to try at all!
My Tip = Just go for it! It will be great for everyone!
“We tried out the couple’s massage videos on a whim.”
We tried out the couple’s massage videos on a whim. No special occasion, just looking for something to do as a couple. We figured it would be just another fun experiment that gave us something to do together as a couple.
It has been more than that.
Don’t get me wrong, it IS a fun experiment that gives us something to do at times (especially when clothing is optional), but it has been a way to physically connect that doesn’t have to be sexual. Just simple touching and connection.
It has also been helpful in reducing stress after a long day at work, or in helping relieve sore muscles after working out.
So it has (at least) provided 3 things:
1. Contact and connection (that doesn’t have to be sexual)
2. Reduced Stress
3. Pain relief
And for anyone that wants a quick tip that helps make great massages… Denis covers this when he suggests you simply use your whole palm. It doesn’t hurt the masseur and feels great for the receiver.
“I can’t explain how easy and realistic these instructional videos are.”
I can’t explain how easy and realistic these instructional videos are. It used to be my wife asked for a massage or a shoulder rub and I would dread and ended up not giving them because my back would be sore, and my hands would get tired within a couple of minutes. I watched the first quick video and that changed everything. Now we’ve gone through these videos and need to refer back to them more often. This course has made it so much easier and even fun. I no longer have back aches and I actually enjoy giving the massage as much as receiving. I can’t believe we didn’t find this sooner.
“I’ve been massaging my wife for years and have never got the response that I get from using your techniques.”
I’ve been massaging my wife for years and have never got the response that I get from using your techniques. I’ve gleamed what I know from the dozens of massages that I’ve received, but it’s just not the same unless someone actually teaches you why as well as how. The massages that I have received have always been very clinical too, while your techniques are much more sensual and yield better results, both for her and for myself.
I follow a blog called “the husband revolution” and they recommended that we husbands change Father’s Day around and do for our families rather than have them do for us. They linked to your site and I went over to check it out. I am very pleased with the results. I can use the techniques that I’ve learned with my wife and my daughter, both of whom are very athletic and often very sore.
The techniques that you have taught me have made things like dealing with knots much more pleasant for my subject than it used to be. Loading up and releasing is just as effective at remove the knot as constant thumb pressure, yet it’s much nicer and more comfortable for the subject. Also, I’ve noticed that your moves all “flow” in an outward direction, which is another thing that I didn’t used to do. I would warm up the area, work the sore spots and move to the next spot. No “washing out”.
I took this learning experience as another tool in my bag, not knowing if I’d have a chance to use it, or if it would be worth the time and money. But for the cost it was worth a try. I have to admit that I’m very happy about the results, and it’s been a worthwhile effort and expense.
“Now he can really MASSAGE me! I can’t wait to try all the videos!”
I saw your massage videos on a blog. It looked great! I have back and neck pain all the time. I can’t afford professional massages. In the past, when I could get my husband to try, it would pinch or be too light and not relaxing. So, we got your videos and tried it out. They were awesome! Took us step by step through the process. Now he can really MASSAGE me! I can’t wait to try all the videos!
“Denis does a great job in explaining how to do the massage, I also like that Denis is modestly dressed in his videos.”
I love essential oils and massages go hand in hand with using oils. My husband loves for me to pamper him with massage but I don’t always feel like getting the massage bed out and etc. so wanted something I could do that would be more convenient and I could do anywhere. He enjoyed the melt massages in our last get away trip and I am looking forward doing even more of them on our next trip this month when we celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. My hubby liked them but he does still prefer the bed for comfort. Denis does a great job in explaining how to do the massage, I also like that Denis is modestly dressed in his videos. Overall. I am very happy with the purchase.
“This is a great team building, relationship enhancing, romantic, downright awesome gift!”
Thank you so much for the Melt Videos. My husband and I absolutely love them! When I read about them on Heidi St. John’s BusyMom Blog- it was a no brainier that it was something we AT LEAST needed to look into. We LOVE getting each other massages for gifts, but with three kids and a limited budget, holiday after holiday adds up. To us, this was the gift that was going to keep on giving. 🙂 We are also suckers for the occasional back rub from each other- so the option to learn how to give each other professional back rubs was an easy decision- and WOW were we doing it all wrong. Now after watching the videos we have a much better idea about how to relieve stress and help each other relax.
Advice for other couples? JUST.DO.IT.
This is a great team building, relationship enhancing, romantic, downright awesome gift! Unless you or your significant other hates getting or giving massages, this is a must have 🙂
I absolutely LOVE the focus on making the massage enjoyable and sensual, WITHOUT the video being cheesy or awkward to watch.
“Magda & Thomas Review”
“I learned SO much SO quickly, like why the bed isn’t a good place for massage and how to keep from getting fatigued.”
My husband loves body rubs, and I’ve always wished I knew true massage techniques because I know they could make a big difference, especially when he’s in pain from working too hard in the yard. I recently even thought about finding a class, but it wouldn’t work for my schedule at this time. Melt made a perfect gift for an anniversary. Being able to preview the actual videos helped my decision. I appreciate that the videos are modest while acknowledging the “something-something” but leaving it up to the couple.
I learned SO much SO quickly, like why the bed isn’t a good place for massage and how to keep from getting fatigued. I knew that it would be harder than it looked and would take practice, but because of the positive and encouraging nature of the instruction, I didn’t get discouraged on my first try. In fact, after watching just one time, I was able to use the techniques on my very pregnant and uncomfortable daughter to help relax her neck and shoulders. She was “melting!” The “aha” moment was realizing the importance of rhythm, and I even incorporated my own rhythm of breathing to help me apply pressure or not. My husband is very happy with this gift! I’m so thankful that you decided to make this available in this way. I could say more, but mostly I suggest other couples try it!
“I super love the MELT videos! My husband has a hard physical job and massages really help him.”
I super love the MELT videos! My husband has a hard physical job and massages really help him. However, they were always hard for me to do and I didn’t really like giving them. In addition I always felt bad about asking for ones for myself because it hurt his hands too. I was intrigued when I heard about MELT, and thought it would be fun to try for Valentine’s Day. I’m so glad I did! I love that MELT cares about the person getting the massage as well as the person giving the massage! When you know that giving a massage isn’t torture for you, you’re more likely to do it more, and enjoy the gift you’re giving. Plus, it turns something therapeutic into so much more!
I highly recommend the MELT videos! They are short, easy to do and keep learning. I took a while getting started, but now I wish I would have started right away. It is so worth it and the money, and they are tastefully done as well. It will be a blessing to your relationship!
“It’s a really fun learning process and it’s an experience that you will both enjoy.”
We love the Melt Videos because they are clean and just thorough enough. We followed all of the steps, like getting a foot stool to sit on, warming up the house, and lighting candles. Everything Denis has to say is intentional and adds to the massage experience. The music is the background and Denis and his (wife?) are very natural together making it enjoyable to watch the videos and practical to apply. Having the choice between a video with a tutorial or just with the music is fantastic and makes the content user friendly for all levels of comfort!
The process of learning the massage technique can be romantic, silly, relaxing, and bonding. Melt provides an experience with all of these things, and we wanted to invest the time and resources to give the gift of growing even closer.
Before learning from the Melt videos we both were guilty of thumb over use. My petite hands on my husbands muscular back fatiqued very quickly and that meant he didn’t get many massages. My husband has always given wonderful massages, but they were a lot of work for him. We were amazed at how relaxed my muscles became with the simple techniques we learned through Melt. We are so happy to experience a much easier massage with much better results!
Our ‘aha’ moment was the first time my spine cracked while on the first few strokes of the first massage routine. We used to try so hard to force our muscles into relaxation, but now we know that with the right technique, the muscles will relax on their own! It was also really nice to learn just how romantic massages can be. We had never tried sitting the way that you are taught in the Melt videos. This detail makes for a completely different massage than what you would get (or want) from a stranger at a spa. It’s amazing!
Our tip… Don’t take yourself too seriously. It’s a really fun learning process and it’s an experience that you will both enjoy. Have fun with prepping the massage ‘stage’ and be present in the moment. Phone’s should be out of sight and out of mind! Warming the room helps a lot for ladies that tend to get cold. Sweet almond oil is perfect for massage, and leaves the skin feeling moisturized and healthy!
Thanks for your sharing your knowledge and skills!
“We love that the videos do not show us more than we care to see.”
MELT has been perfect for us! As parents of a large family, we are not able to get away for dates as often as we would like. MELT gives us a way to connect in the privacy of our own home/bedroom. We love that the videos do not show us more than we care to see. That was important to us. The videos are easy to follow, and give amazing results.
“I love that it’s a lifetime, online purchase. I don’t have to worry about misplacing or scratching DVDs.”
I was sold within a minute of watching the videos. I loved that there was no nudity and the videos were highly professional and very well done. My husband and I are now making massage a part of our nightly bedtime routine. It is a perfect way to connect physically and emotionally. Sometimes it leads to more, and sometimes not.
My aha moment was realizing that my technique doesn’t have to be absolutely perfect that it simply feels great to be touching and connecting with my spouse. Of course, learning technique has a huge benefit, which is why we bought the video series.
I also love that it’s a lifetime, online purchase. I don’t have to worry about misplacing or scratching DVDs.
I recommend this product to every couple looking for an amazing way to serve your spouse and connect in a simply delightful fashion. Plus, Denis’s accent is pretty cool.
“Thank you so much for all the time you have put into creating these videos in a respectful, clean, and appropriate way. We are so grateful for you!”
My fiance, Marc, and I have been looking for something for quite some time that would help us connect in a sensual way. I was sexually abused when I was a child and struggle with all kinds of touch due to PTSD. When things between us became semi-serious, I began going to massage therapy to become more comfortable with safe touch. When we got engaged, my fiance expressed the desire to learn how to massage so that I could learn to trust him with safe touch in the way I had learned to trust my massage therapist. We talked to my massage therapist about it and he said that licensing in our state does not allow massage therapists to teach. We were pretty bummed about it, but continued to look for a resource. I frequently read the blog “To Love, Honor, and Vacuum” and the author recommended the Melt videos. I watched the demo and it looked like something that could really help us. I bought the videos as a gift for my fiance and after watching the first few we were hooked. We have started practicing and it has been a healing experience from the start. Learning to trust again is scary, but so far incredibly rewarding. We are getting married in three weeks and we plan to download the videos to our phones so that we can use them on our honeymoon. We are hoping that we will make a smooth transition to sexual touch thanks to the bonding and trust we will have built using the Melt massage techniques. Thank you so much for all the time you have put into creating these videos in a respectful, clean, and appropriate way. We are so grateful for you!
“I appreciate the massage videos.. they have given me a new, tangible way to show love to my husband”
I appreciate the massage videos.. they have given me a new, tangible way to show love to my husband and a fresh way to introduce “romance time” which focuses on him. As for feedback.. I have not mastered working out “knots” (either that, or he does not have any.) But he really enjoys the back, shoulder, neck and head massage. Each time is always great.
“The Melt massage series sounded PERFECT, and so we considered it a worthwhile investment.”
We first learned about Melt on the Kitchen Stewardship Blog. With an active four-year-old and a needy 4-month-old, our relationship has been lacking romance lately, and we’ve also been bone-tired and bone-sore from sleepless nights. The Melt massage series sounded PERFECT, and so we considered it a worthwhile investment.
Before watching the series, our biggest problems with massage were usually sore hands and not enough time. Melt has helped with both. The techniques are smart and promote relaxation for both partners, and the routine itself only takes 5 minutes.
The “what not to do” sections were very helpful as well. Of course we had been massaging on the bed, but that was not working out well for either of us. The Melt Set-up made a huge difference right from the get-go in helping us to relax and connect in ways we hadn’t found before in a back massage.
Overall, we love the Melt videos because the instruction is clear, the routines are simple enough that anyone can do them, the filming is clean and well-done, and the series itself isn’t just about giving a good back rub, but about connecting with your partner.
Thanks, Denis and Emma!
“The Melt massage series sounded PERFECT, and so we considered it a worthwhile investment.”
We love that we can watch the videos in our own time, to add a bit of spice into our relationship. Before Melt we had little incentive, and were not making the time, but with the direction of the videos, we have somewhere to start. Our tip for other couples includes: setting the scene is a big help with candlelight, wine, and by a woodfire if available is a great start.
“My hands don’t wear out as quickly, so my husband gets to enjoy longer massages. I’m looking forward to the next two courses.”
I first heard about Melt when a marriage blogger mentioned them in an article. She mentioned that she often gives them as a wedding gift and wholeheartedly recommended them. My husband and I both deal with stiff necks and backs, so we are often asking each other for massages. My hands quickly got tired when I massaged him, and he usually pressed too hard when he massaged me. We also tended to work on the bed, which was uncomfortable for both of us. Any massage usually ended with not really wanting to touch each other and rather annoyed – not so helpful.
We decided to try the videos. We’ve been busy, and have only watched the first routine, but it was helpful. My husband doesn’t use his thumbs anymore, so I don’t walk away annoyed with him. My hands don’t wear out as quickly, so my husband gets to enjoy longer massages. I’m looking forward to the next two courses.
One thing that didn’t work immediately for us was the position he describes. My husband is 11 inches taller than me, and I have joint issues that make it hard to sit on the floor. We had to modify the course’s suggestion to make it work for us, but the recommendation was way better than what we were doing and helped us find something that fit our situation.
“I purchased it as an anniversary gift for him this year and utilize the techniques and tips as often as we can.”
My husband and I love Melt: Massage for couples! I purchased it as an anniversary gift for him this year and utilize the techniques and tips as often as we can. The videos are simple, step by step and easy to follow. I have no training of massage and my hands are not strong. I can get through an entire massage for my husband and my hands don’t hurt! On the receiving end, it has done wonders to intensify and better my husband’s technique and style. I could be massaged all hours of the day, but my husband would probably get tired. The videos are nice to have on my phone when we forget or need to revisit for better technique. Our biggest “aha” moment was using the bottom of the palm not the fingers. We always tried to use our fingers to dig deep and always tired easily and quick. I would highly recommend these videos for beginners and even experienced. This will be the next wedding gift we give. Any tips you have for other couples who might want to try the videos?
“At first I didn’t think my husband was 100% on board but then after a long day at work I came home and he treated me to a fantastic massage, it was one of those moments where love was expressed with selfless care.”
When my husband and I decided to try out the melt massage techniques, I had discovered them on a date inspiration website. It looked like a fun and different date idea and we like learning new things so melt seemed like something that was perfect to try. We love how the videos were able to break down different techniques so you can learn as you go and try new things along the way, but it also brings it all together at the end. We would have times that we would give each other massages but we really had no formal instruction and didn’t really know how to target those tight spots. Melt allowed us to expand and enjoy massage more while treating each other to an indulgence. At first I didn’t think my husband was 100% on board but then after a long day at work I came home and he treated me to a fantastic massage, it was one of those moments where love was expressed with selfless care. If anyone is ever on the fence about trying Melt I would highly recommend undertaking a new experience, it might surprise you on how it can open different ways of showing how you love your spouse.
“We bought the Melt Videos because I like relaxing my wife – she likes feeling close.”
We bought the Melt Videos because I like relaxing my wife – she likes feeling close. My biggest issue before trying Melt was that I didn’t take the time to do massage my wife, and when I did I used my hands in the wrong way (mostly thumbs) and got tired very quickly. The cushion idea that was highlighted in your setup videos didn’t work for us – I am much more comfortable just sitting on my feet. We didn’t start right away because we thought we needed this extra cushion thingee. Perhaps suggest getting started with no extra equipment and IF the massager is uncomfortable then splurge for something similar to what you highlighted in the video.
“I love that we can pull the videos up on our iPad and watch them together in the bedroom. Thanks for “keeping it clean” too! :)”
My husband and I just recently began watching the Melt videos. I follow the Unveiled Wife on Facebook and she highly recommended these videos so I thought it would be great for Father’s Day! I especially love the mood setting suggestions and “taking it off the bed” for a change 🙂 After almost 10 years of marriage any ideas to change things up are most welcome! I love that we can pull the videos up on our iPad and watch them together in the bedroom. Thanks for “keeping it clean” too! 🙂
“My biggest issue was that my thumbs would get tired within 5 minutes of starting the massage.”
What I love about the Melt videos is that the instructions are clear and there is a clear visual so show me exactly how I am supposed to do each movement.
I wanted to try the video with the hopes that if I could give my husband a great massage that didn’t pinch, maybe he’d want to give one back. (He tended to pinch a lot when he would give me a massage.) Completely selfish, I know!
I think I already answered my husbands biggest problem before the videos! My biggest issue was that my thumbs would get tired within 5 minutes of starting the massage.
My “aha” moment actually came when my husband was giving me a massage. I don’t have to use a lot of pressure for it to feel completely amazing! I know you said that in your video, but it didn’t really sink in until I was on the receiving end of the massage.
I don’t know that this is really a tip for couples wanting to try the videos, but I will say this, Your partner will be forever grateful that you purchased these videos and the massages you give/receive will never be the same again. (In a good way of course!)
“Denis is not too serious, but clever with his instruction. We are so happy to have someone teach us this skill as a couple.”
Inspiration! You two are lovely to watch and listen to. Denis is not too serious, but clever with his instruction. We are so happy to have someone teach us this skill as a couple. We want to be able to give this gift to each other. Work and parenting is hard. Marriage is super fun and it’s important to show gratitude.
Before working with Melt our biggest issue was wearing out quickly. Bu the most important lesson we learned was to “mold our hands!” This is so much fun and these skills are priceless when on this journey as a pair.
“We bought the videos as a wedding present to ourselves and tried the teachings out on our honeymoon. :)”
We are huge fans of the way Denis presents the techniques. He is very relaxed, the how-to’s are made perfectly clear and we get to have fun! We bought the videos as a wedding present to ourselves and tried the teachings out on our honeymoon. 🙂
Before the videos, we resorted to pinching shoulders and wearing our thumbs out rubbing backs. Understanding that the strokes can vary in pressures and direction is incredibly helpful–you don’t get bored with this massage.
For anyone considering Melt, the cost of the whole package is more than worth it. It pays dividends for both husband and wife. 🙂
“It makes for a fun, romantic date night, and you’ll learn a new way to pamper and be affectionate with your partner. “
I love that the Melt Videos are clear, non-cheesy, and encouraging. The production value is also great. One thing I’d improve, though: the music for the 5-minute massage routine video is not very relaxing … a little too techno.
I love back rubs, and I was excited for my husband to learn how to give a good massage. Before, he would complain of his hands hurting and wouldn’t want to give me a back rub, but now it’s easier for him because he knows the right way to massage.
The thing that’s made the biggest difference so far is the tip to keep your hands molded to your partner’s body. That saves my husband’s hands. If you’re even a little curious about giving your partner back rubs, just try it! It makes for a fun, romantic date night, and you’ll learn a new way to pamper and be affectionate with your partner.
“This course has gotten us out of the tv before bed habit and increased the level of physical intimacy.”
My husband and I are really enjoying the Melt: Massage for Couples videos series. We like that it is easy to learn, doesn’t require any special equipment and because they are done in a sitting position there is no strain on the lower back or neck that comes from when we have tried massages on the bed. We like that there are shorter sessions to choose from and our hands don’t get tired even thought the massage techniques are effective and very relaxing. While a special bean bag or pillows are suggested to sit on, we have found that a footstool with a pillow works perfectly. This course has gotten us out of the tv before bed habit and increased the level of physical intimacy for us and has really helped my husband to help me relax after a stressful day which of course helps gets us primed for other “fun” activities when the massage is over! Also, I sleep extra deeply after a soothing massage. Thank you so much for making this course available. I have been recommending it to others.
“When I first saw it I wasn’t sure if it was going to be something we could actually do.”
The Melt massage series has been a wonderful thing for my marriage. When I first saw it I wasn’t sure if it was going to be something we could actually do. My husband has chronic pain because of an illness so I was imagining a very one sided massage experience but I was very pleasantly surprised. Denis does a wonderful job breaking down each different technique and not only showing you how to do it but also the things you should avoid doing. Both my husband and I were able to learn each technique and do them very successfully. Denis also has tips to keep you from wearing your hands out quickly so we are both able to give 30 minute massages with no discomfort.
Another thing I love about this series is that the people involved are well clothed so I don’t have to feel uncomfortable asking my husband to watch something where people don’t wear enough clothes. Besides some eye-rolling on my husbands part and the use of the term “mushy mushy yum yum bits” we enjoyed every bit of this series and highly recommend it to our friends.
Denis takes you through everything from how to set up your massage space, what kinds of oil to use, how to apply it and the series even includes videos at the end of each section where he shows you how to put together all of the different techniques to create a cohesive massage. We have also received regular emails with suggestions and tips on how to improve our massage experience. I had a question so I sent in an email and asked and got a very quick very personal response. We have made this series last for weeks by learning one technique each night that we do a massage so we watch a short video and then each have a lovely massage once we get the baby in bed. It makes for a wonderful, relaxing time to wind down together and reconnect with each other after long days of work and fighting with a toddler.
Thanks for making a series that we can both enjoy.
“Before learning about Melt, my husband’s approach to “backrubs” was quick and rough and it hurt so much that I would rarely ask for them.”
What amazing massage videos! Denis is a master of massage and he and his lovely wife Emma make a great team! Denis is patient in his teaching techniques, and throws in a few bits of humor here and there to keep it light-hearted. Before learning about Melt, my approach to “backrubs” was very reluctant, because my husband is big and strong and I am small. I would give it my all for about 3 minutes before I was too exhausted to continue, and I’d hardly made any difference to his sore muscles. Now, with the helpful instructions, I can last for 45 minutes (that’s the longest we’ve been able to sit in one spot so far) and we are calm and relaxed. My husband continually shares with me how great it feels. Before learning about Melt, my husband’s approach to “backrubs” was quick and rough and it hurt so much that I would rarely ask for them and if I did, I would soon ask him to stop. Now that Denis has taught us how to massage, my husband is gentle yet effective with his massages. I was motivated to get Melt because we both really love to be touched and routinely get professional therapeutic massages, but we clearly didn’t know how to do it for mutual enjoyment. This has built our emotional intimacy to new heights and we highly recommend this quality instruction to all couples!
“I wanted something different and special since he had just came back from a 7 month long military deployment. The idea of learning how to give my husband better massages sounded amazing! The thought of receiving more massages was a bonus!”
I came across Melt Videos when searching for a Valentines Day gift for my husband this year. I wanted something different and special since he had just came back from a 7 month long military deployment and had missed the previous our previous year’s Valentine’s Day and Anniversary. The idea of learning how to give my husband better massages sounded amazing! I was determined to learn how to make my husband enjoy massages, since at the time he didn’t care too much for them. Partially was because I didn’t know what I was doing, and the other part was because I couldn’t give them for long since my hands would hurt right away. The thought of receiving more massages was a bonus! I love that the Melt Videos teach techniques that are simple to learn and so effective! My “aha” moment when learning the massage techniques was when I learned that massages didn’t have to hurt my wrists! As far as receiving the new massages, i was amazed that my husband would massage me for longer periods of time, and also that the massages made my back feel so much better! I love the intimacy that a loving massage brings. In any relationship, but especially a military relationship where your spouse is gone so much, it is important to find ways to stay affectionate and intimate when they are home. I would definitely recommend these videos to every couple! My husband and I look forward to continuing to learn the massage techniques and put them into practice when he comes home again!
“I feel like I have learned a new skill that we as a couple will reap benefits for the rest of our life.”
Our marriage has recently been going through a very difficult period recently and I was searching for something that we could do together as a couple that would help us connect. I found the Melt massage videos have provided a means for us to do just this in a loving and intimate fashion and have been instrumental in helping us survive together through this rough time. It has become a vehicle for resting, relaxing, and connecting as a couple. And since we started, my wife’s headaches and migraines have been eliminated! The video quality is outstanding and the instructions are superb. Before learning the techniques given in the videos, I felt like I was just fumbling through any kind of massage I would give my wife. I was unsure and clumsy and ineffective. But now I feel confident, purposeful, and excited that this is something I can do for her to make a real and lasting impact. It has become almost a nightly routine before bed and I think even our sleep has gotten better. I feel like I have learned a new skill that we as a couple will reap benefits for the rest of our life.
“He’s afraid he’ll hurt me, so he doesn’t massage my neck enough to make a difference. Both of us feel so much more confident, after watching the videos!”
I read a blog post about Melt, and had to check it out. My husband is always willing to give me a massage, but we both could use some [a lot!] of instruction. He’s afraid he’ll hurt me, so he doesn’t massage my neck enough to make a difference.
Both of us feel so much more confident, after watching the videos! We’ll be practicing so that we master the techniques. A win/win situation! Thank you so much for breaking it all down.
“Melt is such an appropriate name. You Melt in your spouses hands and the physical stresses of the day melt away.”
As much as I sometimes think I would enjoy a trip to the spa for a massage, it’s never been a luxury we can afford. But the melt videos have helped bring the spa into our home. And Melt is such an appropriate name. You Melt in your spouses hands and the physical stresses of the day melt away.
The videos give instruction in simple strokes that feel delightful and don’t leave the one giving the massage sore either. They communicate that it isn’t just deep tissue stuff that feels good, but that light strokes can be every bit as relaxing if not more.
On the tech side, the option is there to download if you know you won’t have access to Internet later or just don’t want the buffering.
We have been enjoying Melt in our lives.
“Craig and Katija Review”
“My biggest problem before the videos was my hands getting tired early on, but now that I know how to position our bodies and proper technique for my hands that is not an issue”
I was inspired to try the videos because Denis has such a calm voice as he explains in detail what to do and not to do.
My husband and I have always loved massage so when I saw some of these videos I felt they were so easy to follow it would be a great couples thing for us.
My biggest problem before the videos was my hands getting tired early on, but now that I know how to position our bodies and proper technique for my hands that is not an issue.
The MELT technique transforms couples massage from something we do for each other to a deeper love language that is enjoyed by both the giver and the receiver.
“It really made sense to start out slow and work up to the deep tissue massage.”
We found the Melt videos extremely helpful because the image is right there in front of us and provides clear visual and audio instruction on how to complete the massage. It goes at an easy pace for us beginners to follow without constantly feeling like we need to rewind the video to catch all of the points we missed because we couldn’t keep up.
It really made sense to start out slow and work up to the deep tissue massage. So often it seemed like that is how we would start out with a massage but it wouldn’t last long because our hands would get tired so quickly. By starting with the rubbing on the back and down the arms and working up from there eases into the massage at a much better pace. Even just the simple touch of applying the oil was enough to start the senses tingling and fueled the longing for wanting more.
Even though the videos are so helpful and the massages are also enjoyable, we found that we have to be intentional about actually setting aside the time to do them. Life is busy and it takes time to watch the videos and effort do the massages. Over time as we learn the massages and they come more naturally, it should be easier to just take some time to give a massage, but in the initial stages of learning you really need to motivate yourself to actually take the time to do it or it just won’t happen. But keep with it because it is so worth it!
“Melt massage has opened that door to making massage more enjoyable for us both–on the giving and receiving end!”
Melt Massage truly blessed our marriage at a time when we were discovering how important it is to help each other relax, and how little we were thriving at this. As amateur musicians, we both recognize how much technique makes a difference in making music. You don’t know until you learn it, though, how much easier it is to make beautiful music, when you use your hands and muscles in more efficient ways on your instrument. Well, you need some technique to be a good masseuse, and Melt massage has opened that door to making massage more enjoyable for us both–on the giving and receiving end! We have so much to learn in our love life, but Melt massage has given us confidence to press on to love each other better. The biggest thing we’ve learned from Melt massage so far is the rhythm of gentle, hand-molding masage along with the deeper, focused massage. We need a rhythm of both to give relief and to let the body relax and recover. This is a lesson that translates into the other areas of our relationship as well, but in massage, it’s the key to melting.
“It is absolutely worth the money. It’s basically the cost of ONE professional massage and you both reap the benefits!”
My husband and I both want to give good massages to each other because, let’s face it, professional massages are expensive! And neither of us is very comfortable dressing down in front of other people. We’ve found free tutorials on giving massages, but the outcome is always the same. My thumbs are killing me just a minute or two into the massage and my husband just can’t figure out the touch I need. When I saw a blogger recommend Melt: Massage for Couples, I was very interested and it wasn’t hard convincing my hubby to get on board. We have loved the videos and it makes sense to us! The strokes are well demonstrated and described so we can both figure it out and you learn all the steps for a GOOD routine that is both relaxing and sexy. My thumbs don’t get sore and my husband has caught on to good touch. It takes time and practice, but what a great date night at home! It is absolutely worth the money. It’s basically the cost of ONE professional massage and you both reap the benefits!
“We have learned most of all after 25 years of marriage – we were doing it all wrong!”
Denis, you do a great job on the videos. We enjoy listening to your voice which is helpful. There is a good balance between humor and information – enough to keep the men interested.
With regard to massage, we have learned most of all after 25 years of marriage – we were doing it all wrong! We were contributing too much effort and energy with too little return. Your program has changed that for us. Using the oil and the strokes and routines provided makes it so simple to get a fantastic experience that really works!
“My husband (for the first time ever, haha) was impressed with the massage I gave him. It made him feel so relaxed that he actually dozed off!”
I wanted to be able to give my husband a good massage for once! And never felt like I could give a good massage because I wasn’t “strong” enough. The Melt instructions are so simple to understand, I realized that a good massage is about technique, not strength! Also, that the mood and atmosphere are just as important!
My tip for couples is, go for it! My husband (for the first time ever, haha) was impressed with the massage I gave him. It made him feel so relaxed that he actually dozed off!
“Denis and Emma keep everything clean and comfortable, while still encouraging couples to be romantic and loving and let it go wherever it leads them.”
Denis and Emma keep everything clean and comfortable, while still encouraging couples to be romantic and loving and let it go wherever it leads them. I appreciate all the additional ideas about how to prepare for a special evening…. For example, leaving notes, selecting music that your partner likes, drawing a bath first, surprising them with a space already set up with candles and mood lighting, etc. I think I surprised my husband and that he really appreciated the gesture.
I was inspired to try the videos because I wanted new and sincere ways to show my husband my love for him and do something meaningful and get out of our routines. I don’t think massaging will ever get old. And honestly, the free foot rub offer came on a day that I was so tired and had aching feet (I am also pregnant right now), that it tipped me over the edge to bite the bullet and buy the videos. J
I think our biggest problem before trying the videos was massaging on the bed and while I have had a little massage instruction many years ago, my husband has not. He’s done some things that don’t feel that great and I think he could benefit from some tips and I also want to know techniques that will feel good for him when he is on the receiving end.
I think the lesson on massaging in a seated position and how to keep your hands in contact with your partner’s body and avoid fingertips and pinchy moves as well as how to keep the masseur/masseuse from getting fatigued have all been great tips.
Looking forward to more massage dates with my husband! Thank you!
“I wanted something perfect for a date night…”
I wanted something perfect for a date night so when I saw that these were for a couple of date nights I was really pleased. I had looked for massage courses in the past but it was tricky to find one we could attend locally which wasn’t prohibitively expensive or at a convenient time.
We loved the idea of being able to come back and watch the videos again whenever we felt like it. I love the way they build into a routine and I appreciate how you can add extra routines like head and hand massage.
In the past when either one of us had asked for a massage it wouldn’t last long and would end up with pressing hard on sore spots which wasn’t very romantic. My partner is very muscular and I thought I had to press really hard and this just hurt my fingers so it was a revelation that this isn’t the case at all. Now we have the amazing ability to gift a massage to each other and know that it feels incredible and makes us feel connected and bonded.
Thank you for this course, we are extremely grateful.
“Your videos are very tastefully and tenderly done so it’s not icky or weird, just very comfortable and down to earth. Thank you!”
The whole idea of learning massage used to seem so intimidating – wouldn’t it take forever and be really expensive? And how awkward would it be to massage or be massaged by total strangers? Couples’ massage videos…hmm…not interested in seeing other people naked, so that was out… or so we thought. Melt Massage for Couples to the rescue! In the privacy of our own home, we can learn to lovingly massage one another with no sense of urgency or fear of interruptions (except by our child!). Your videos are very tastefully and tenderly done so it’s not icky or weird, just very comfortable and down to earth. Thank you!
“The lessons are done in such a way that I don’t get tired and worn out, and the massage routines have such a wonderful rhythm to them!”
I read a review of the Melt Massage Course on a blog that I subscribe to. The author suggested it as a good Valentine’s Day choice for a date night in. My husband and I had just been discussing “one thing” that we could do for each other that would show love and honor (mine was that he consistently open my door) and he couldn’t think of one thing! So when I saw the course, I decided for him…this would be his “one thing” and I would surprise him on our vacation we had coming up (happened to be over Valentine’s Day). I had no experience in massage prior to the videos and they were easy to watch and follow. I love that I can reference them anytime and it has been a wonderful addition to our marriage. I KNOW my husband likes it because he even requests it from time to time. The lessons are done in such a way that I don’t get tired and worn out, and the massage routines have such a wonderful rhythm to them! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
“I purchased them as a Christmas gift for him (us, really) and gave the printable certificate to him on Christmas.”
Last fall, I read about the Melt Massage videos on a blog I love, To Love, Honor and Vacuum. The blogger, Sheila, described these videos as very tastefully done, and I was intrigued.
I was impressed with the quality and professionalism of the site, and that the instructor demonstrates the techniques on his wife. I saw enough to know I wanted to get these for my husband and myself. I purchased them as a Christmas gift for him (us, really) and gave the printable certificate to him on Christmas.
When we started the first lesson, we were both a little intimidated because we had no prior skills or real knowledge about giving a massage. It was actually quite easy, and we both tried the techniques out on each other! We will be using this video set for years to come! It feels so wonderful, even during the learning stage!
I recommend these for any married couple looking for an activity to do together which brings pleasure and benefits to both partners.
“Melt’s massage videos have been a fun way for my husband and I to connect.”
Melt’s massage videos have been a fun way for my husband and I to connect. With three preschoolers, we love that the videos are short and to the point. They definitely fit in our schedule!
“Before watching the videos, massage felt like a chore because it was so tiring. Turns out it shouldn’t be that way!”
My husband and I bought the Melt Massage video series awhile back and we love it! I came across it while reading a blog post by Sheila Wray Gregoire about intimacy in marriage and this series came highly recommended. Before watching the videos, massage felt like a chore because it was so tiring. Turns out it shouldn’t be that way! We learned proper technique that made it so much easier.
The instructions were easy to follow and helped us create a romantic experience where we got to slow down and be intentional with one another. I love that all the videos build on each other creating a routine. Denis and Emma have done a wonderful job!
“At one point, he started to hum!”
So glad I found you….after being married to my husband for 13.5 years, I was totally successful in removing a knot from his back and I didn’t have sore thumbs. Thank you so much for the videos. I used the basic stroke, cat walk, thumbs, and washing the pain away. The massage was about 20 minutes. At one point, he started to hum and said, “You know a massage is good when it makes you hum without even trying.”
Kuddos to you and your wife!
“First, thank you so very much for making such great videos! Classy . . . and inviting!! “
I have been looking for new ways to encourage and connect with my husband. When I came across your videos – something clicked. This is something I want to try – something worth investing in! My husband lives with chronic back pain and I’ve always wanted to learn better ways to give him a back massage. But my fingers tire quickly and I would always feel like it wasn’t helping him much – which led to discouragement. Your videos gave me more effective ways to soothe his aching muscles – which also helped us connect at deeper heart level too.
Thanks for creating these clear and classy videos!
“Any couple that tries this will not be disappointed!”
We love the MELT massage videos! We stumbled across them one day and couldn’t pass them up as a gift to each other. They looked too good!
We are just beginning to do the videos but have went through all the techniques and just need to put it all together in a seamless fashion with the right ambiance. We have found them to be very easy to follow and simple to do. Prior to the videos we really didn’t know how to give proper massages. We tried but positioning made it hard on our backs and hands so the tips you give for positioning is perfect! We’re excited that we found MELT and can’t wait to start practicing more regularly. We do think it can be a powerful tool for couples and marriages to help them connect with one another and escape the world for a few moments in the privacy of their own home and at the hands of the one they love.
Any couple that tries this will not be disappointed!
“I love that its not only as a 30 min massage, but also a quick 5 min massage when you just need a quick way to unwind and relax without the kids interrupting us”
We love the Melt Massage Series, it helps us to connect on a more intimate level. It brings a real sense of closeness, not only physically, but on a spiritual level as well. Knowing that you can bring your partner relief from aches and pains makes us feel more confident in our relationship. Marriage enrichment is a big passion of ours, we try to keep our marriage in the forefront of our minds.
In this day and age when Marriage isn’t values anymore it takes even greater work to keep us connected. The Melt Series is one of those tools that we use to enrich our marriage. It makes for a great stay at home date night experience, I love that its not only as a 30 min massage, but also a quick 5 min massage when you just need a quick way to unwind and relax without the kids interrupting us. Before watching the video series, I really had no idea how to give a massage that my wife enjoyed.
The videos are so well done and tasteful that is really simple to learn the techniques. I would suggest that all married couples give it a try, don’t be intimidated with your lack of knowledge of massage. The videos teach you everything you need to know and will reignite that intimacy and passion in your marriage that is so important to have a lasting marriage.
“Following along with the videos keeps the pace slow, such a pleasure”
The Melt videos taught me that having my husband in a sitting position makes the massages not only more enjoyable but last longer. I find that sitting does not put undue strain on my back and shoulders and following along with the videos keeps the pace slow, such a pleasure.
“The tip that I have for anyone thinking about investing in the Melt videos is.. Buy them.. Buy them now, Don’t wait, and Start using them right away… you will never regret the choice you made:-) “
Thank you so much for putting this video series together it has been awesome for my marriage:-)
It has been a little tricky to download because we have the cheapest internet connection it takes a while to download but once its loaded, its awesome:-) If there was a way to keep it downloaded on your computer, that would help out a lot and we would be able to use all the videos more often.
We are excited to try your other videos too.. the only one we have done so far is the foot massage…Oh my I remember the night, it was like it was yesterday my husband had me sit on the couch and he played the video and went step by step like you instructed….It was the best foot massage I have ever had.. and I have had a lot of foot massages over the last eight years of marriage:-) When he was done my feet had never felt so great. It was awesome. I thanked him over and over again… He had a big smile on his face… it was a beautiful moment.. thank you so much:-)
I found out about the Melt video from the Unveiled Wife. She posted about how amazing the melt video have been for her marriage. She said it really helped the intimacy in her marriage and in the last couple years I have been going through postpartum depression and really wanted some help with the intimacy part in our marriage. We already were giving each other massages with young living essential oils, but this just helped to bring in tools to perfect what we were already doing:-)
“Thank you for putting these videos together, which not only are easy to follow along with, but also very tastefully done.”
I purchased the Melt videos at the recommendation of Heidi St. John for Father’s Day. My husband has a job that is physically demanding, we have four children ranging from 10 years to 11 months, and he has been dealing with chronic pain for several years now. My hope in purchasing the videos was to offer him some relief from his pain and add some relaxation at the end of his day. Little did I know the benefits I would gain as well and the romance it would introduce back into our relationship.
I am a full-time, stay home mom. I enjoy the challenges of homeschooling my children and caring for our home. However, it can be very difficult to turn off the to-do list and focus my energy on my husband at the end of the day after our kids are off to bed. We have enjoyed taking turns learning and introducing the techniques on each other. The massage videos, although we are still working our way through them, have allowed us to find a bit of time each week to relax with each other and enjoy ourselves. I hope we can make this a habit in our marriage and always take time for a little romance. Thank you for putting these videos together, which not only are easy to follow along with, but also very tastefully done. The videos do not draw attention away from each other during the massages to a large extent and I am sure once we have the techniques down we will need to create our own routines.
“What I noticed during the first massage was that even though I massaged for half an hour, I never became tired or worn out. We were both in a relaxing setting doing a relaxing activity, and we both loved it.”
My husband, Bobby, and I were married just over a year ago. One of our little traditions that we decided to incorporate into our marriage was Monday Night Massages. Something I quickly learned is that Bobby has an infinite capacity for massage! Hence my interest in learning better technique and my purchase of Melt: Massage for Couples Video Series.
Our first session was beautiful. We watched the first videos together, then set up our environment (candles, pillows, music, oil) and got started. What I noticed during the first Melt massage was that even though I massaged for half an hour, I never became tired or worn out. We were both in a relaxing setting doing a relaxing activity, and we both loved it.
The second session was similar, but I was able to incorporate more techniques, because we had watched more videos. It made me glow inside when Bobby fell into bed afterward and said, “I feel completely relaxed.” That to me was a sign that our session filled him in a way in which I previously struggled. Typically I wear out before Bobby is fully relaxed. What was really helpful was when Denis talked about massage locations – the bed, vs Denis’ way of doing it… In the past we have always used the bed, but this is part of why I wore out so quickly. And if I was on the receiving end, I sank uncomfortably far into the bed and my back felt weird when pressure was applied. Not so relaxing!
Our latest session was great, because I was on the receiving end. 🙂 I am very sensitive to anything that feels like a poke, and used to complain that Bobby poked me too much. Imagine my delight when I felt his smooth, relaxing strokes, and didn’t suffer even one poke!
We are still at the very beginning of the course, but so far it has exceeded my expectations. I am looking forward some excellent sessions in the future! Thank you so much for your tasteful, instructive videos!
“A great way for us to be together and unwind, and for just ten to fifteen minutes lose track of everything…”
My wife is two months pregnant and I was surfing the internet looking for ways to help us remain calm and keep stress at bay. That’s when I discovered Melt: Massage for Couples.
I watched the trailer video and was hooked, I bought the series, watched the first set, went home that evening and tried it with my wife. She loved it, I loved it. It is just a great way for us to be together and unwind, and for just ten to fifteen minutes lose track of everything and intensely focus on each other. Afterwards you feel so relaxed, and the stress of the day seems to have vanished.
The videos are wonderful, and easy to follow. If I am not quite understanding a certain technique I just re-watch that section a few times, and now I have the “Sexy Swoosh” down pat. I am a big fan of Melt, and I plan on sharing it with my siblings, and friends.
“I really appreciate the fact that Melt is kept clean, sophisticated and romantic, and does not stray into the kind of video that I am not interested in.”
Melt: Massage for Couples has certainly been a great find for my husband and myself! I value how easy and comprehensive it is, and that the instructional element of it is so uncomplicated. I would never have known how to build a massage in the way that Denis and Emma demonstrate, and I really appreciate the fact that Melt is kept clean, sophisticated and romantic, and does not stray into the kind of video that I am not interested in.
I have never been one for massage myself, however my husband absolutely loves to be massaged. Although I will massage him as a way to show him that I love him, it has always felt like more of a chore, and certainly was not for romantic purposes! I was inspired to buy Melt through a Christian couple’s website as it came highly recommended and because of the mention that it was ‘clean’ and ‘romantic’. More than anything, I wanted to surprise my husband with something I knew he would love, but that he wouldn’t suspect I would ever do! He absolutely loved it, and was so relaxed by the time we got through! It has certainly revolutionised the way I viewed massage as something that does not extend far beyond benefiting sore athletes and injured footballers! I had no idea it could be used at home in such an intimate, relationship-building way, given that massage has traditionally done nothing for me. I got just as much out of giving this massage as my husband did out of receiving it.
The greatest revelation for me after working through Melt was that massaging someone doesn’t have to be exhausting. My hands used to hurt after about three minutes, and I would have to stop. By learning proper techniques, and how to use your hands to build a massage, I was able to keep going through the whole video without tiring at all. I think the fact that my husband was enjoying the massage so much helped inspire me to keep going, but the session was also really relaxing for me, and it was the first time I have ever enjoyed massaging someone! I might get John to try massaging me, and I may end up joining the converted!
Any couple would find Melt a really special massage teaching video. I hesitate to call it a ‘program’, because that really doesn’t do justice to the peaceful intimacy of the setting, the tone and gentle demonstration of the videos. In addition to the massage element, it was just a really nice way to learn to connect physically in a romantic, tender way. Melt would be a perfect treat for a memorable romantic night in, and allows you to connect with your spouse whether you have plenty of time, or only a little. We absolutely love it, and will use it regularly for years to come. Thank you Denis and Emma!
“We’ve only made it through the 5 minute routine so far, but have already learned a lot, and realized we were doing a lot wrong for a long time!”
My wife and I only just got the Melt program a short time ago, and aren’t masters yet, but we are already enjoying our purchase! The instructions are given in a very easy to understand way, and it’s almost soothing just to listen as the strokes are described! The accompanying visuals are also great to demonstrate how to perform the different strokes.
We’ve only made it through the 5 minute routine so far, but have already learned a lot, and realized we were doing a lot wrong for a long time! We were using the “pinchy-pinchy” method of massaging the shoulders, rather than contouring and keeping our palms and fingers down, and what a difference did doing it the right way make! We also really like the seating arrangement as described in the videos. It’s much more comfortable and enjoyable than laying on the bed with your neck cranked off to one side.
If you get this program, which I highly recommend, I would encourage you to watch the videos a time or two ahead of time to get some of the pointers that are in later videos before jumping right into things. All in all my wife and I are very excited to get moving on to the highlights and the 15 minute routine!
“Our ‘aha’ moment came when we realised we’ve been using fingers and thumbs to massage but now instead we mold our hands to the body”
What we love is that the videos feature easy-to-understand and follow instructions that anyone can do if you want to show a loving touch to your partner. We love massage and enjoy massaging each other anyway, and we are always ready to learn new exciting ways to be together so we thought we’d try out the video series. Our ‘aha’ moment came when we realised we’ve been using fingers and thumbs to massage but now instead we mold our hands to the body when applying pressure. I would recommend Melt for any couple – just do it! Set the time aside and be together.
“The videos are super professional, easy to follow and relaxing just to watch and learn”
My husband and I LOVE the Melt massage videos. We realized that the way we were massaging each other before the videos was all wrong and hardly romantic compared to what we learned from the Melt series. We had so much fun testing it out on each other and learning more about each other’s likes during the process. The videos are super professional, easy to follow and relaxing just to watch and learn. Since we started the Melt series, our relationship has blossomed even more and become more intimate through these incredible massages. We can’t wait to try some more!

“The best thing about the course, beside everything else that I wrote, is that these videos are completely PG”
The Melt Massage for Couples video series is an amazing and stunningly well-produced product which should be included in every couple’s relationship survival and enhancement toolkit. I came across the series via a recommendation from a marriage newsletter I receive, and was further spurred on by the wonderful reviews I found on other blogs. I immediately told my wife Tanya about the series and shortly thereafter purchased it.
During our courtship and early marriage, I often would offer to give Tanya massages. As time progressed, I found that whatever techniques I was using either hurt my hands or caused my bride discomfort. No matter what either one of us did, at the end of the session we would both end up being more frustrated than relaxed, which is the exact opposite of what massage is intended to achieve. Instead of drawing us closer, it would push us apart, so, I gave up.
Once I saw the preview for this video series, I KNEW it was time to bring massage back into our lives again. Denis’s techniques are simple, easy on the hands, and allow for an exquisite level of intimacy between Tanya and I during the massage sessions. The individual lessons are easy to follow and the longer routines both with and without commentary are great springboards to re-enforce and utilize what is learned and to continue afterwards on one’s own. Tanya and I continued at least another 10-15 minutes after the first routine and my hands didn’t hurt at all!
The technical level of production on these videos is top-notch. The videos are filmed in full HD quality and have a great soundtrack to set the mood. Denis’s voice-overs are clear, calm, warming, and inviting. The best thing about the course, beside everything else that I wrote, is that these videos are completely PG. While the love and intimate connection between Denis and his wife Emma is clear in the videos, there is nothing that would be considered scandalous at all. While Denis alludes many times to the fact that this is a very intimate kind of massage and that it could lead to further things, that his goal is to teach and demonstrate the techniques, not to show where they could lead.
Lastly, Denis supports and stands by his products 100%. I encountered a small technical problem downloading the routine sessions from the website. Denis was not only quick to respond, but stayed up past midnight in his time zone in order to resolve the problem! THAT is dedication. It is clear to me that Denis is extremely passionate about massage and how it can be used as a tool to help increase intimacy and closeness within a relationship. Melt is an amazing product and I encourage anyone who is debating investing in the product to do so without worry. It is well worth the investment.
“Denis has a really nice, easy presentation style that is engaging and informative”
My wife loves the occasional massage (especially her feet), and I’ve been pretty poor about offering. A big part of that has been due to hand fatigue and (I now know) physical setup. The videos have been great. They very clearly offer advise on setup (the pouffe is so much better than just sitting on my knees) and the technique – I have much less hand fatigue. The description of oil selection (and use) was actual very useful for me, too.
I learned about the videos from a Christian blog I follow and decided to try them out. The techniques are simple but powerful, creating a relaxed closeness and connection. Denis has a really nice, easy presentation style that is engaging and informative. Overall, we’ve really enjoyed the lessons and recommend them for all couples!
“You’ve helped bring us closer together and you’ve created more love in the world. What can be better than that?”
I bought the series for my husband and I so we might have a way that we could connect on a meaningful level. I say I bought it for us, but really, at the time I bought it for selfish reasons. I desperately crave touch and intimacy – my husband not so much. I thought learning to massage each other would give me the touch I so desired and maybe he would end up enjoying it as well. If anything, we would both learn something new and have the benefits of a massage.
The aha moment came when I realized that giving a massage was just as intimate as receiving a massage. So in giving, one receives! The videos are so well done – professional, compassionate, gentle and classy. I don’t think there is any other product out there quite like it around. Thank you for sharing your beautiful gifts in such an honest and loving way. You’ve helped bring us closer together and you’ve created more love in the world. What can be better than that?
“I love how intimate, sexy, and enjoyable these routines are… This is couple time at its best!”
My wife loves getting massages but I have never had any training in how to do it right until now. I love how intimate, sexy, and enjoyable these routines are. The way my wife used to like being massaged was always deep tissue “the more it hurts the more I like it” method. The problem with this is that it is not intimate (I feel like I’m abusing her), it hurts my thumbs and hands, I get tired of doing it quickly, there is no “bonding” during it, and it isn’t fun for me. I never thought that giving a massage to my wife could be such a turn on for both of us and it doesn’t hurt my hands! It is such a wonderful feeling to be able to do something like this for your spouse in a way that is enjoyable to both of you. Not to mention how much she appreciates the time and effort I put into developing these skills just for her and knowing that I am the only one who can make her feel this way after a long day! This is couple time at its best. Now if I could just get her to switch places every now and then.
I had been looking for a way to develop more intimacy with my wife and Dr. Corey Allen suggested this. As soon as I watched the first video I was thinking, why couldn’t I have found this 25 years ago!
Even I can do something intimate, sexy, and enjoyable with my wife while feeling like a professional (at least in her eyes) in a skill that I have wanted to learn for a long time.
Anyone can do this with the help of these videos and the benefits to your relationship never stop. Practice makes perfect, is so much fun and will often lead to being intimate in other fun ways too.
P.S. I really appreciate the lifetime membership and the PG rating.
“A most exciting opportunity to really connect with each other through massage”
We found the videos to be a most exciting opportunity to really connect with each other through massage. Before this, we sort of had an ‘experience’ barrier in terms of massages and techniques, so that’s why we decided to give these videos a shot and it’s still ongoing! With Melt, we learn together, try together and get to spend some really good quality time together.
Unfortunately we’re in a long distance relationship for the better part of this year and could only just start the series. So, we cannot wait to continue the rest of the videos when we get together again this year. We plan to take an amazing vacation late in the year and i am certain these routines will follow us there. Looking forward to getting that aha moment while we’re tucked away in our private quarters in a most amazing Caribbean cruise!
“My boyfriend’s and my primary love languages is physical touch. I wanted to become ‘fluent’ in this language”
The videos are great! I loved how easy it was to follow along and the freedom to alter the routine. What inspired me to try the videos was when I discovered that one of my boyfriend’s and my primary love languages is physical touch. I wanted to become “fluent” in this language. The biggest discovery for us has been contouring our hands. It really makes a difference.
“I love that the videos are easy-to-follow, and the fact that they’re PG is great because I’ve been watching them during my kids’ nap time. No need for awkward conversations with my five-year-old when he suddenly appears behind me, completely unannounced!”
My husband occasionally gives me a neck massage when I’m working at the computer, but I’ve never felt competent in my ability to return the favor, which is why I jumped at the chance to learn when I found out about this online course. We both spend a lot of our workday at computers and standing, so the few times we’ve splurged on a professional massage, it has been well worth the cost. But with two little kids and our schedules, we both agree that it would be amazing to have a massage more than once every two years!
This course makes that entirely possible, especially with both shorter and longer routines. No need to spend an hour when you’ve only got 20 minutes. A good massage is totally within reach!
I love that the videos are easy-to-follow, and the fact that they’re PG is great because I’ve been watching them during my kids’ nap time. No need for awkward conversations with my five-year-old when he suddenly appears behind me, completely unannounced!
I always thought massages should be done on the bed, but glad that the reasoning for sitting was thoroughly explained. I love the bean bag idea; it works like a charm and makes giving massages seem nearly effortless.
Also, they are very attentive to their customers. I couldn’t find the email with log in info (turns out it went to my Spam folder) and I got a prompt reply.
“It is a great way to have a wonderful date night without having to spend money for the rest of our lives”
I love the videos for many reasons, most of all because it is simple. It is a great way to have a wonderful date night without having to spend money for the rest of our lives. I heard about the videos through the blog, Simple Marriage. I have been following that blog for a few years and trust the products they endorse. I think the biggest aha moment was to not try to apply too much pressure, but just the gentle touch can have just as powerful of an effect.
“Every marriage needs to get their hands on this series (pun intended). This series is a must have investment in your lives together.”
My husband and I love the Melt: Massage for Couples video series because they provide simple instructions for quality one on one experiences together. It is so easy to get caught up in the craziness of this world but we need to remember that marriages need our attention. Marriage is a sacred bond, it takes time, energy, consistent intentional dedication to the other person and total immersion in the relationship.
Roger and I consider the Melt video series “marriage maintenance”. I had not heard of Melt prior to following the Dating Divas blog who recommended the series. I ordered the videos and they are AMAZING! Every marriage needs to get their hands on this series (pun intended). Melt is a must have investment in your lives together.
“It’s less about having the perfect technique and more about paying attention to your partner and how s/he reacts to the touch”
My husband and I have been married for just shy of 5 years but have been together for almost 14! He is a very busy man as he is currently in the throes of a residency/fellowship and has a very frequent on call schedule. With him away, I am also very busy with 3 littlies under foot. We have two girls (3.5 & 1.5) and a baby boy (just 2m old). Date night has sadly become a thing of the past partly due to schedule and partly due to budget constraints.
Both my husband and I love to give and get massages. Seemed like a perfect opportunity for a few at home date nights. Needless to say it has turned out to be well worth the investment. We have so much fun learning the routines and practicing on each other. Relaxing, romantic, and amazing techniques that are so easy to learn.
I love that the videos aren’t cheesy, either. I was a little worried about that 🙂 The aha moment for us in watching the videos and learning the routines was when Denis explains how it’s less about having the perfect technique and more about paying attention to your partner and how s/he reacts to the touch.
Thanks again for the videos! We will be hoping to catch an in person workshop when you venture to the states!
“I am grateful for another way to spend time with my husband and to make our marriage stronger”
Denis, I am very impressed with your video series. I actually bought the membership a while back and hadn’t had a chance to use to until recently. I like that the videos are tasteful but sexy. It definitely made me excited to spend time blessing my spouse with something so fun and intimate. I am grateful for another way to spend time with my husband and to make our marriage stronger.
“I searched the internet for quality massage instruction. Didn’t realize it would be so hard to find a decent G- rated version. We are so happy to have found the MELT Couples Massage series!”
We love your MELT massage video! Here is what we think:
Through emails from Simple Marriage, my husband and I discovered another wonderful way to enjoy being together after 35 years of marriage. My husband always gave me great “deep” shoulder massages and I wanted to learn to do the same for him. We’ve just started the video series and are amazed at the gentle massage techniques we are learning.
We love this massage video! It is so easy to follow and relaxing. Not just for the one receiving the massage, but relaxing for the one giving the massage. Denis and Emma provide all the important details and visual instruction you need to spend some quality time with your partner. Techniques are put together in easy massage routines. We found it very helpful to practice our massage along with Denis and Emma to perfect rhythm, pressure and skill.
I searched the internet for quality massage instruction. Didn’t realize it would be so hard to find a decent G- rated version. We are so happy to have found the MELT Couples Massage series!
So dim the lights, play some great music and treat yourself to learning a new skill that you can enjoy for a lifetime.
Make it as Romantic as You Want
“This was an intimate, beautiful, pleasant experience that has brought something new and exciting into our marriage. Thank you!!!”
My husband Jerry and I have been married for over 16 years and have an awesome relationship, I even have a published book on the subject of marriage – but massage is one thing that we avoided… until now!!
Up to this point whenever we would attempt massage one of two things happened:
1. I would give him a massage on the bed, which he would thoroughly enjoy and promptly fall asleep.
Or, 2. He would give me a massage which was more irritating than pleasant and both of us would end up grumpy and frustrated. Now, thanks to this amazing, informative, detailed, step-by-step video series everything has changed!!!
For the first time we were able to have a romantic night of candlelight, music, and yes, MASSAGE!!!!
This was an intimate, beautiful, pleasant experience that has brought something new and exciting into our marriage. Thank you!!! This course is well made, easy to follow and understand, and has the ability to bring a new dynamic to any relationship!!!
“We have tried to do massage without instruction and been disappointed, so this is wonderful”
The MELT massage videos provide me with an opportunity to serve my husband in a caring, relaxing way that I haven’t found before. It is something to look forward to, gentle and soothing. I know that I am giving him an opportunity to slow down after a busy work week and let those tense muscles relax.
I particularly appreciate that you teach how to do it without hurting the hands of the massager. We have tried to do massage without instruction and been disappointed, so this is wonderful. I appreciate the input about finding a comfortable position and choosing the right oil to make it all work together for a positive experience. The “aha” moment was that it would not hurt our hands if we did it correctly.
My husband and I lead marriage seminars. I learned about the videos through Sheila’s blog. I would not have been interested if Shelia had not recommended it as clean and romantic.
My tip for other couples would be to be sure both of you have watched the videos and stay on the same page about what will happen and how to do the massages.
Thank you for offering this.
“We are a very close couple and are sharing in aging aches and pains but greatly enjoy any tips to keep us close and minister to each other’s needs.”
I was so fortunate to find out about MELT: Massage for Couples via my favorite writer on Sex Family and Christian Life…SheilaWray Gregoire. www.ToLoveHonorandVacuum.com
It was her recommendation to see the series. I went on to learn and practice some massage techniques on my hubby of 44 years. We are a very close couple and are sharing in aging aches and pains but greatly enjoy any tips to keep us close and minister to each other’s needs.
Hubby works at a very physically demanding job. And a loving massage, right when he gets home from work has always been beneficial. However, I have never had any instructions. I just naturally would rub my hands over his back with his T shirt on.
I loved the instruction on the neck massage as he has had problems with occipital headaches and degenerative disc disease in his cervical spine. Whether you need unwinding and relaxation as a re- entry to home life after a busy day, or you want to delight your mate before “something, something” progresses in your daily love life, your instructions have been so beneficial to both of us as we learn more about our bodies.
Even after so many years of marriage, there is much to learn as you explore! Thank you so much for your generous offer and instruction.
“I never knew anything like this series existed. After just going through the basic lessons, we were hooked!”
I first heard about the Melt Couples Massage Courses through a newsletter I subscribe to from Sheila Wray Gregoire (a Christian marriage blogger). So I decided to look at the website and see what it was. After watching the preview I decided to purchase it. I never knew anything like this series existed, but I was really glad to have found it. I really enjoy massages and my husband mostly hated them. He never wanted a massage and giving a massage always hurt his hands. I thought that Melt would help us to both enjoy massages. After just going through the basic lessons, we were hooked! I didn’t even have to ask him to do the other lessons with me, that’s how much he enjoyed it! Plus, his hands didn’t hurt! I was very surprised. We went through all the lessons and continue to watch the videos in order to perfect some of the techniques.
The videos are very clean. There is no inappropriate language or scenes in the videos which really makes or breaks it for us as we are a conservative family. The massage techniques are very well explained and demonstrated which is great because we really didn’t know anything about correct massage techniques. Going through these lessons has helped us to connect in a way we didn’t before. I think it definitely brings us closer together as we take time out of our day to focus on each other and just tune the rest of the world out. I’m still amazed at how Melt has completely changed my husbands view of massage. And I’m really glad it did!
Thank you Denis and Emma for making these videos!
“It’s wonderful to have such a fun and easy way to relax and feel less tense.”
I discovered MELT: Massage for Couples through reading a post by my favorite blogger Sheila Wray Gregoire at To Love, Honor and Vacuum. She is awesome and her opinions on all things marital, parental and Christian carry a good deal of weight in my book.
It’s wonderful to have such a fun and easy way to relax and feel less tense, while also remembering part of what attracted us to one another in the first place. We actually went to an in-person couples massage intensive a few years ago, and while it was sort of fun (and ended up being a private class since the other two couples canceled) it didn’t end up helping us much once we were back home – it was hard to remember all we had tried to learn, since a lot had been packed into a short time.
I am very hopeful that your series will bring us to a new level of intimacy and comfort, and aid us in dealing with some ongoing physical issues we both have with our necks and shoulders. I can’t wait to have more time alone with my hubby so we can “practice” on each other. 🙂
Thank you for creating such a wonderful resource!
“A very affordable date night with no child care needed.”
We have always joked that one of us needs to go to massage therapy school so that we can get awesome massages at home. We both speak the love language of physical touch and carry a lot of stress from our day jobs (System Admin-in front of a computer all day, and stay at home, homeschooling mom to 4!).
We loved this series because it really was like going to massage school at home, not to mention a very affordable date night with no child care needed. It is a great way for us to relax at the end of the day and really reconnect with one another in this loving act of service.
Thank you for providing us with this amazing product!
” At first I thought that if my husband and I were to watch the videos together, it’d be too cheesy and could potentially defeat the purpose of a romantic massage. But surprisingly, it wasn’t the case.”
What I love about these videos is the way they were creatively shot. They give a very well-coordinated visual presentation without making it seem too procedural. Denis and Emma did a great job demonstrating the routines without drawing the attention to themselves. At first I thought that if my husband and I were to watch the videos together, it’d be too cheesy and could potentially defeat the purpose of a romantic massage. But surprisingly, it wasn’t the case. And although the videos were very instructive, they remained classy, gentle and pleasant to watch throughout the entire series. I also appreciate Denis for imparting his first-hand knowledge as a professional without intimidating us with jargons but made it look and sound completely doable. His do’s and don’ts are totally relevant because they are the things that we commonly do not do or have all wrong.
But one thing that I really would like to commend about this product is its concept of enabling couples to give each other pleasure. Everyone loves getting a massage but apart from it being expensive, it is quite physical and intimate in nature if we care to admit it. So rather than handing it over to the professionals, I would very much prefer to take the job of making my spouse feel good and get credit for it one way or another. And I know my husband feels the same way. It truly is a blessing to have as a tool to strengthen our bond as a couple.
“This course would also be a very good answer for the question of what to do on your Date Night”
We’ve been married 34 years and looking forward to MANY more! We’ve enjoyed many good things together, but unfortunately we’ve also had to endure the many aches and pains of growing older.
We have been attempting to massage each other for several years, but with ZERO training, we weren’t getting the results we wanted. We have looked around for training videos or books, but all of those we found showed WAY TOO MUCH SKIN.
My wife heard about MELT: Massage for Couples from one of her favorite writers Sheila Wray Gregoire, and we decided to look at it. What we found was a VERY well done and easy to follow program. Best of all was the PG rating!!!! We’ve been doing the course together and learning VERY much. By following the techniques shown, we’re getting better results and not getting nearly as
tired doing it.
This course is WELL WORTH the price!!! It allows us to not only relieve the aches, pains and stress of everyday life, but also brings us closer together with peaceful times of intimacy. This course would also be a very good answer for the question of what to do on your “Date Night”.
“I was hooked from one of the first videos when Denis talks about why he structures his massages from the sitting position instead of lying on the bed.”
I have always been a sucker for massages, but I’ve never liked the price nor the inconvenience of going somewhere else to get one. I heard about the Melt videos through Sheila Wray Gregoire.
I couldn’t resist, and it’s been everything I wanted so far. In the brief moment before buying, I was concerned about the quality of the videos. Anybody can film a video and post it on the internet. I was also concerned about whether or not I would truly learn anything. Don’t be concerned about either. The quality of the videos is awesome, the sound, the lighting, the filming. It’s very professionally done. Also, Denis teaches real massage strokes, step-by-step, the technique, the skills, all of it.
I was hooked from one of the first videos when Denis talks about why he structures his massages from the sitting position instead of lying on the bed.
Before watching these videos, my husband and I always attempted back rubs on the bed, and they were never quite right, for exactly all the reasons Denis stated, I just didn’t know it then.
I love these videos because it has transformed my husband and I from mediocre one-handed, one-minute back rubbers into someone who can give a real massage and do it well. It has been an awesome addition to our marriage. For the past few days, instead of turning on the TV, we’ve turned on these movies and added to our repertoire of massage strokes. It’s been an awesome way to add intimacy, reduce tension, learn a lot, and have a fun time with my husband.
For the price of a single massage, you can watch a few videos and then give and receive a massage every day for the rest of your life.
Thanks a bunch and keep the movies coming!
“The way you taught us to mold our hands to our partner’s back has taken our massages to a whole new level! There are so many little tips in each of your videos in addition to the basic instruction and techniques.”
Thank you so much for making the MELT massage videos available! My wife and I have always enjoyed massage as a way to connect and be romantic as well as just relax after a tough day, but we’ve never had any “formal” training. You gave us some wonderful techniques and we LOVE the results!
I appreciate that your videos are very tastefully done. Thank you so much for this great opportunity you have given us to continue to grow closer as a couple! The way you taught us to mold our hands to our partner’s back has taken our massages to a whole new level!
We had used oil before, but never like you showed us and the grape seed oil is wonderful!
There are so many little tips in each of your videos in addition to the basic instruction and techniques. We enjoy going back and watching again just to see what we missed. Thank you SO MUCH!
“It’s totally out of our normal date night tradition, but fun to do something different and something that will positively affect our relationship for the rest of our lives!.”
We loved that, after 17 years of marriage, we learned how to connect in a new way!
I was inspired to try the videos because I’ve always wanted to learn massage to bless my husband (and children) in this way without making a career out of it.
My “aha” moment is rather simple. Using the sweet almond oil. In the past, I complicated this simple step by overanalyzing the use of other products that didn’t work well.
These videos are a fun way to incorporate into date nights together. It’s totally out of our normal date night tradition, but fun to do something different and something that will positively affect our relationship for the rest of our lives! We have no regrets!!!
