Melt’s website offers the definition of the word melt: > 1. to change from a solid to a liquid state as a result of heat or pressure > 2. to dissolve
These definitions imply that the customer receiving Melt’s amazing services will undergo these exact processes. Some might say that melting is an undesireable transformation. To them, we would point to nature. Typically, when things melt, they get better. A boring, cold ice cube that melts on a hot belly turns into a nice, warm belly puddle. When your heart melts after looking at something cute, the resulting heart-shaped heat makes a beautiful fossil. Whenever a witch melts, there’s a free witch hat at the top of the witch-clothing pile. And when the tension in your body melts after a Melt massage, facial, and award-winning mani-pedi, you are reborn as a beautiful phoenix, a fire-bird risen from the ashes of the daily grind and armed with Groupons to fight life’s drudgery. Read on soldier.

The press doesn’t lie. Well maybe about foreign policy, but when it comes to spa reviews, Melt’s hot reviews in nearly every publication you can imagine are indisputable evidence of the media’s awesomeness.
InStyle listed Melt as one of five spas that provides the best facials in all of America. Boston Common said, “Taking luxury and relaxation to a whole new level, Melt spa and salon is sure to pamper even the most discerning of spa-goers.” And The Boston Globe called Melt “a mind-riveting thriller”. Wait, actually it said that about The Dark Knight, but it called Melt “gorgeous”. We’re always mixing those two up since they’re both so awesome.
