Welcome to Melt Massage…

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

This does not change what we 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, 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.

Our team has been recognized for their talent by winning numerous awards.
In 2017, we were voted Best Massage by Oakland Magazine, and the only Oakland-based Massage practice named in the top 5 of the Bay Area A-List.

Awards now 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.

Our greatest reward, however, is the gift you give us in allowing us to help you feel the relief from stress and tension inside your body, something we do with our clients every day.

We’ve done nearly 30,000 hours of massage on over 3,000 clients. If we haven’t yet worked with you, we invite you, when the time is right, to feel the difference experience makes for yourself. If we have, and it’s been a while, when the time is right, we look forward to welcoming back.

Important News and Updates

Covid Safety Protocols

Posted On: August 29, 2021

Standard Health & Safety Protocols:

In addition to previous standard practices for the prior 20+ years of:
– using fresh and clean massage table linens for each client
– washing hands and arms deeply between clients (at least 20 seconds with soap)
– rescheduling instead of seeing clients who show up sick (see
Cancelation Policy)
– monitoring my own health daily and rescheduling appointments accordingly when necessary
– cleaning high touch surfaces daily
– running a Hepa filter in the room at all times when preparing for and seeing clients.

Covid Health & Safety Protocols: In addition to the above:
– cleaning and sanitizing all high-touch surfaces between every client
– cleaning and sanitizing the massage table and headrest between every client
– having clients complete a pre-screening health questionnaire before every session
– asking clients who travel to wait 1-2 weeks to book a session, a “travel health buffer”
– upon arrival to an appointment:
— asking clients to wash their hands well, even if recently washed
— reviewing the pre-screening health answers for any changes since completion
— taking our temperatures to ensure neither of us has a fever
– wearing my nose and mouth mask the entire time we’re together and requesting you do the same in order for us to proceed
– excluding face work for now
– keeping windows open and air circulating in the room
– allowing 1 hour between clients to air out the massage room.

And as the Delta variant is active, I am also wearing my:
– N95 mask (upgraded from double-layer cloth mask) and
– face shield during sessions.

For the time being, I will be asking clients to complete a Prescreening Health Questionnaire before each appointment. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and support of personal and public health by answering these questions.

To learn more, contact me directly at Hana@MeltMassage.net.

In health,

Melt Massage’s Reopening!

Posted On: June 15, 2021

(Updated Aug. 25, 2021)

Although the global Covid-19 pandemic continues, since Alameda County has lifted its Shelter in Place order and I am now fully vaccinated, in addition to continuing offering Virtual Massage services, I am excited to announce that Melt Massage is reopening for in-person massage as well!

Relative to Covid, this reopening comes with several changes:

  1. a solo practice
  2. starting with 1 hour sessions only until I’ve reconditioned my body for longer sessions up to my classic 4 hour massage
  3. scheduling appointments every other week (on Even weeks.)
  4. working out of two new locations in Oakland, offered relative to your vaccination status
  5. following new Covid protocols

Appointments are available every Even week

(note: Not the 2nd & 4th weeks of the month, the even weeks, to keep with an ‘every other week’ schedule). The week of June 14th, 2021, is an even week. To see a calendar of even weeks go here.)

As of Sept. 6, 2021, my new primary location is:

3852 Piedmont Ave., Suite 206,

just up from the corner of Rio Vista, with appointments available weekdays. I also have limited hours for my level-in entry ADA clients in Montclair.


To book online, use the BookNow tab. Otherwise, please contact me directly. Call/text: 510-418-4262 or email: Hana@MeltMassage.net


Please note new Rates and payment information.


Revisions to this plan will continue to adapt to changing demands of our health environment. Stay tuned. And thank you for your patience as this website continues to be updated.
