Welcome to Melt Massage…

You are unique in all the world. There has never been, nor will there ever be, anyone exactly like you. That deserves to be honored, respected and celebrated.

That’s why at Melt Massage, we don’t leave a good massage to chance.  In your first visit we take extra time to learn your unique history to tailor a session to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Since 2001, our clients say things like, “There’s no substitute for talent.” That’s because I believe I have assembled the best team of therapists in the Bay Area and beyond. I’m not the only one who feels this way.

In 2013, Diablo Magazine named Melt Massage Best of the Bay. In 2016 we Ranked #4 for Best Massage by the Bay Area A-List. Recently, we were named for Best Massage in Oakland and the East Bay by Oakland Magazine! Our Yelp reviews continue to describe the difference we make with people every day.

I invite you feel the difference experience makes, for yourself.

Top Ten Tips to get a Great Massage, Every Time

Posted On: May 17, 2016

Top Ten things to know for how to get a great massage:

  1. Remember your therapist wants to give you a great massage.
  2. Your therapist is not psychic (at least I believe most are not, truly, psychic, and would you want them to be? to be able to read your every thought? I wouldn’t. 🙂
  3. Your therapist’s nerves end at their skin, so they cannot feel what you’re feeling, and (repeat #1) they want to give you a great massage.
  4. Even if you’ve never had a massage, you’re the expert in your own body – you’ve had it your whole life, you know what feels good and doesn’t. Even after 25 years of doing bodywork, that does not make me an expert in your body or any other client’s body. The therapist will not know what feels good for you unless you tell them.
  5. Tell the therapist what feels good and what doesn’t.
  6. It should never hurt, ever. (this is a philosophical point, but I believe it empirically as I have seen so much benefit over the years of gentle yet deep work I’ve never found I needed to hurt someone to help them – anyway, it seems like a contraindication, we’re trying to relieve pain, stress, and tension, not create it. If a therapist says to you, “This will help you in the long run” and you want a certain level of pain, you may accept it. I don’t and I won’t say that to my clients. In that case, you have the right to tell the therapist, “I want to feel good now. I’m not here for that.” And make sure that they adjust to Your comfort level.
  7. You have the right to stop the session at any time. It’s your body. Your time. Your money. If the therapist does not adjust pressure (lighter or deeper) to your satisfaction, especially after several requests, you may say, “I think I’m done now.” and end the session.
  8. You have the right to ask for your money back if you don’t get what you need, especially after several requests.
  9. You won’t ever have to ask for your money back or request the session to stop if you communicate with your therapist about what feels good and what doesn’t and ask them to adjust until it feels better for you.
  10. If you’re not sure what’s going to feel good, ask the therapist to go slowly so you can let them know when it feels good.
