why do you
sit like that?

The short answer, intimacy.

99.9% of couples don’t own a massage table.

The bed is unsupportive, it’ll cause you both pain. The neck muscles that feel so good when massaged are blocked due to the head is turned to the side. You’re at arms length away – there’s no intimacy here,

and the granite benchtop is no substitue for a massage table.

We call this position “the Melt Set Up” – it was totally stolen from the movie ghost and it’s perfect for couples to massage with at home.

Intimacy is what makes your massage better than what the professionals can give. Sitting our way is more intimate than any other position:

  • It’s the most comfortable (if you can cross your legs)
  • The neck is in a neutral position (laying down it’s not)
  • Access your partners front (laying down, you cannot)
  • Your chest is up close to your partner’s back (laying down, you’re arms length away)
  • Your mouth is close to their ear / you can whisper to them, get cheek-to-cheek

Yup, it’s coupley! Afterall, this is Massage For Couples. We know this isn’t the traditional way you do massage… the more you play, the more delights you’ll discover in this position. And when your partner begins to make noises like “hmm” and “ahh” … you’ll be so happy that you’ve broken tradition.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our videos remain clean – there’s no nudity or awkwardness. You’ll naturally find your level of intimacy in the comfort & privacy of your home or weekend getaway!

surprising your partner?

Are you surprising your partner for an Anniversary? Birthday, Christmas Gift, Date Night or just to add a little more excitement to your relationship? Or is this a “go team!” thing?


Alright – we’ve got some pointers for you to get started – let’s make your massage experience awesome!


Nice one lovers… Go Team! Here’s how most couples use Melt when learning together.

Gina and her Husband Dwayne

have been using Melt to share back rubs for the past 3 months…

Favourite Technique: The Basic Massage Stroke.

Well chosen, Denis regards the basic stroke as the most important technique taught, and the easiest that you’ll learn.

It’ll help you learn rhythm and flow, brings relaxation in spades and let’s you hug your partner at the end of the stroke. It’s stunning!

Thanks for your kind words Gina – we’re so happy you and Dwayne are a part of Melt!

This is Dan (the husband), we love the part about the ‘mushy mushy Yum Yum bits’

We get feedback like this from couples often. The mushy mushy Yum Yum’s are just one of the 17 techniques you’ll find in the Melt Video series – silly names are easy to remember. It’s a great way for couples to connect and makes cumminicating your needs much better – something like… “babe, can you spend just a minute or two rubbing my mushy mushy Yum Yum’s?”

practicing Massage together

So, you’re learning massage together. An excellent idea! Here’s what you can expect:

  • You’ll swap roles often (Giver / Receiver)
  • You’ll learn faster! Receiving massage is an important part of learning – you’ll pick up finer details this way, remembering what feels good and implementing this into your massage.
  • You’ll share feedback. Communication helps your partner know what you like so they can do more of that next time.

It’s a reall good thing learning together, sharing a common interest / goal. It’ll help bond and connect you even more… go team!

If you’re planning to surprise your partner – we’ve got something special for you! We have a whole different angle for you. Click Here.


We made The Basic Series easy to learn!


The Basic Series takes 20-minutes to learn. But expect your experience to be approx 90-mins, as you’ll be playful… you’ll laugh, connect & swap roles of the giver / receiver.

Massage loves repetition… and we promise you’ll be asking for do-overs too! Thats a good thing.

Will it be cheeky or chilled?

Most couples use the Basic Series to seduce their partner. Don’t worry, our videos are PG (we keep it clean and easy to watch), but the two of you are welcome to follow your natural instincts. (NOTE: Not every massage needs to be intimate, it’s okay for couples massage to be a massage. Agree on expectations before you start.)

We recommend watching the intro videos to learn how to set up your space before starting your massage – it helps. The massage tutorials have been designed so you can lern “on the fly.” This way you get to the fun stuff immediately.)

30 Minute Massage Routine

Follow along bringing everything you’ve learned in this entire course together into one perfect 30 minute massage. This is exceptional!

I was inspired to buy Melt as it came highly recommended and because of the mention that it was ‘clean’ and ‘romantic’

“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. Any couple would find Melt a really special massage teaching video.  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!”

A great way for us to be together and unwind, and for just ten to fifteen minutes lose track of everything…

“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.”

Hi there, I’m Denis.

I’ll be your massage coach.

I’ve been teaching couples massage for 15 years, and I’m totally in love with my job.

Next to me is Emma – the gorgeous model that I demonstrate on. She loves massages too!!

My goal is to get you having as much fun as possible in the shortest amount of time.

I dedicate most of my time on developing the right communication to help you learn massage in the best possible way.

Melt as my artwork. It’s 100% original, developed specifically for couples. In fact, it was orginially developed to be used solely for my own relationship – to help connect and bond my partner and me. It allowed for us to explore each others body in a way thats both relaxing, comfortable and intimate.

Come join me inside Melt – your relationship will get so much out of this. It’s so good for you.


When does the class start?

Denis’ class is live right now! You’ll get instant access as soon as you sign up.

What’s included in the price?

  • There are 17 massage techniques and 3 back rub routines that range from beginner to advanced.
  • Each technique takes approximately 5 minutes to learn. Repeat as many times until you feel confident with your hands. Hot tip: Your partner wont mind at all if you feel like you need to repeat a technique.

Massage routines are the best! We combine techniques to create a brilliant back rub:

  • 5 minute back rub (beginner)
  • 15 minute back rub (intermediate)
  • 30 minute back rub (advanced)

What format does the class take?

The videos are streamed online via your account. They’ve been structured in a format to help you pick up the techniques fast! But rules are meant to be broken… you can watch any tutorial at any time and still learn a useful technique. For beginners, best results are achieved by following the videos consecutively.

Experts Recommend Us:

Melt comes highly recommended by Psychologists, Relationship Counselors, Marriage Authors & Writers

“I’m actually using these as wedding presents!”

“I like helping people get their marriages off to a good start, so I’ll put an envelope with instructions on how to access the video series in a basket, along with some massage oil, some candles, and a CD with really relaxing music. I think it’ll make a unique and awesome wedding gift!”

“One of the things I like about Melt is that it builds on a lot of the fundamentals of sensate focus”

“Melt allows you to passively share quality time to concentrate only on each other, replacing feelings of stress and anxiety with relaxation through mutual touch, and communicating with your partner about what feels good.”

“Massage speaks to several love languages at once”

Here’s a few of the things I love about the Melt Video Series:

  1. Denis keeps things PG-rated.
  2. We learned that we were massaging wrong—and now we know how to do it right.
  3. The videos are broken down into short tutorials making it easy to pick up, one technique per video.
  4. Melt is easy to watch together and do together.

“What a great way to spend an evening together!”

“The videos are well done, easy to follow, and straight-forward. Melt gives you a great foundation for a night where the massage is the main event, or a night when the massage sets the stage for even more.”
