After what feels like the longest year in history, I miss seeing my friends and family. I miss hugs and human contact in general after 15 months of social distancing! And with our busy family life with two kids in school and two work-at-home parents, it's easy to get lost in the day-to-day routine and need something to spark reconnection. So I was intrigued when a friend of mine recently mentioned the Melt: Massage For Couples online courses that she and her husband have enjoyed. Something that's affordable, easy to follow, builds intimacy & connection, and all from the comfort of our own home...that's four big checkmarks for me! I had been struggling to think of a unique Father's Day gift for my husband to celebrate our relationship, and I'm convinced this is the perfect one as a shared gift with benefits for both of us.
WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO
After 20+ years of giving each other massages at bedtime to help us fall asleep, I'm SO excited for us to learn new techniques that will turn them into great massages that deepen our connection. I've had a sneak peek at some of the Beginner Class instructions, and I can already see that the way I've been massaging all these years with my fingertips up is a no-no - hands down and deep is a much better way to go! And the drop is what it's really all about - that moment in time where your partner falls back into you and "lets go". That's where you find trust, vulnerability, and connection, and it's a good indicator that your partner is ready for you to begin using deep tissue massage. Just press play, follow along with Denis & Emma's simple instructions, and copy what they do. You get to set the pace, copy the techniques you love, and trade back and forth making each other melt. Sure sounds like a great win-win gift for Father's Day, especially with sale pricing that's only available until June 20th!

WHO IS DENIS MERKAS?
Denis has been a professional massage practitioner for over 20 years and spent 8 years teaching live workshops getting it right before filming his Melt courses. I think it's pretty remarkable, and a testament to his excellence, that Denis has taught over 50,000 couples to date! He knows just how good massage is for you. It’ll help you sleep better and breathe better, you’ll feel more relaxed, refreshed, and less stressed. It increases oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine – chemicals in your brain that make you feel good.

And did I mention that Denis also developed Melt's high-quality almond massage oil? It's cold-pressed with no additives and penetrates the skin for a rejuvenating experience, and I just ordered a 16 oz. bottle on Amazon.ca!
