My husband and I will soon be celebrating our 18th Christmas together! I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but he really is my best friend and the person who knows me better than anyone else in the world. This year we decided to give each other a gift that celebrates our relationship and shows how much we love and appreciate each other. I’m talking about a subscription to Melt: Massage for Couples.

Don’t get me wrong, massages have always been a part of our love language. But there’s a huge difference between “amateur” massages and the ones we’ve been learning to give since we started watching Melt videos together. Before now I never realized how much of a difference proper technique could make to how it feels for both the giver and receiver!

Denis Merkas is an experienced massage therapist with 16 years of expertise teaching 50,000+ couples basic and advanced massage techniques. His friendly, engaging instructional style makes it easy to follow along and copy his techniques so you can give your partner amazing massages without hurting your hands or back. There’s no nudity or mature content in these video tutorials, though of course what happens after you practice your massage skills is up to you. (Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more!)

Each video is between one and five minutes long. These small chunks allow you to take the course at your own speed, learning one massage skill or technique at a time. Denis breaks down each technique and explains each step clearly with multiple camera angles, so you know exactly how to do it. Once you’ve learned the individual techniques, you’ll put them all together into a full massage routine that will melt your partner.

The Melt Masterclass starts out with basic massage strokes. Once you’ve mastered those, you’ll move on to intermediate-level “highlight” techniques that hone in on specific problem areas, and then on to advanced deep tissue techniques that let you really get into those sore muscles. I cannot explain just how amazing the train tracks technique feels on those tight and knotted rhomboid muscles between my shoulder blades. It’s bliss…

Along with all the tutorial videos, you’ll also receive four complete massage routines you can copy or use as inspiration: a quick 5-minute relaxation routine; an extended 15-minute routine; an ultimate, melt-into-a-puddle 30-minute routine; and a bonus intermediate/advanced deep tissue focused routine. Check out this short video below for a glimpse into some of the techniques that will elevate your next couples massage.

According to Denis, the most significant thing to look for when you’re massaging your partner is the drop. This is the moment when your partner falls back into you and just lets go in perfect trust and vulnerability. You can also think of the drop as an indicator of complete relaxation when it’s appropriate to start doing deep tissue massage – which Denis also shows you how to do without hurting your hands.

A massage can set the stage for – ahem – something more, or it can be the main event itself. Either way, these classes have noticeably improved and enhanced the massages we give each other. The first time my husband dropped because of the massage I was giving him, I felt on top of the world. I did that!

We’re learning more than just massage techniques though. Denis passes along all the tips and tricks he’s picked up through his years of professional practice. For example, good massages need a good massage oil. Lotions are best reserved for hands and feet as it tends to be absorbed too quickly on large areas like the back. Denis recommends professional-grade sweet almond oil, or if you’re allergic to nuts, you can try apricot or grapeseed oil instead.

You’ll learn the best massage position to maximize intimacy and minimize back and wrist strain (hint: it’s not lying on the bed), learn how to find those knots in your partner’s shoulders, and discover how to put techniques together into your own massage routine. You’ll also learn what not to do – no pinching, please!

The beauty of Melt Massage videos is that you really don’t need a special occasion to get started though. If you and your spouse would like to feel closer, improve your connection, and do something special together, Melt Massage for Couples is the perfect gift to give each other for the holidays.
