Welcome to Melt Massage…

In response to COVID-19, Melt continues to adapt to the changing demands of this personal and global health crisis, including updating this website. Read more in the latest Blog Post.

This does not change what I believe.

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, I don’t leave a good massage to chance.  In your first visit we take extra time to review your unique history, to tailor a session to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Since 2001, clients say things like, “There’s no substitute for talent.”

In 2022 Melt has been nominated for Best of Oakland in Oakland Magazine’s Best of Contest. In March and April, write in your support for the nomination to get on the final ballot here.

Previous Awards include:
– Winner, Best Massage in Oakland and the East Bay by Oakland Magazine, 2017 & 2016
– Top 5, Bay Area A-List, 2017 & 2016
– Winner, Best Massage, Best of the Bay, Diablo Magazine 2013.

My greatest reward, though, is feeling the difference I make in people’s bodies, every day, relieving stress and tension, feeling your stress and tension melting in my hands, with every massage.

I’ve done over 10,000 hours of massage working with over 3,000 clients. If I haven’t yet worked with you, I invite you, when the time is right, to feel the difference experience makes for yourself. If I have, and it’s been a while, when the time is right, I look forward to welcoming you back.

Until then, be well,

Hana Levin, MA, cmt, Founder

Important News and Updates

Microbiome Massage? !

Posted On: March 16, 2022

March is Microbiome Massage Month!

What?! Yes! (Why not?)

Get your gut in Spring Cleaning mode with a gentle, yet effective, abdominal massage.

Support your microbiome to do it’s thing for you well with an abdominal massage. Ask for it with your next session (or learn the “ILU” method by video here.)

Why? Massage for Gut Health

We are detoxing all the time – in 4 main ways; Vapor (perspiration), Gas (exhalation; mouth and, well, you know – the other end), Liquid (urination) and Solid (poo). If we’re not doing these things, and doing them well, well, that’s a problem. Improper or incomplete elimination can lead to a toxic internal environment. Massage helps promote circulation and, therefore, good elimination. Abdominal massage directly helps to:

  • Relieve constipation
  • Improve digestion
  • Reduce bloating
  • and supporting good elimination (no $h#t).

Ask for it with your next massage. Book now.

To Mask or Not to Mask? Melt’s current masking policy

Posted On: March 3, 2022

U.S. COVID-19 Community Levels by County (03.03.22)

(Key: Orange: High, Green: Medium, Yellow: Low)

 

While the CDC (2/25/22), the CDPH (2/28/22) and Alameda County (3/3/22) are shifting from requiring to strongly recommending masks indoors for everyone, masks continue to be required in Alameda County “Indoors at businesses, government offices, and workplace settings that choose to require everyone to mask.”

We don’t yet know why even some healthy people get sick or even get Long Covid. And as long as people and commerce continues to travel between counties, the risks will continue to spread. Breath knows no borders.

Therefore, I will continue to wear, and continue to require my clients to properly wear, appropriate masks when we’re together.

I know there will come a time when we will look back at this pandemic and be so grateful it is over. Now is not that time. Now is the time to continue to be safe. I know who I’m protecting doing this, my family and yours. I don’t know who I don’t know who I’m protecting. I’m protecting them, too.

Thank you for your understanding and support of this health policy.
