LOS ANGELES, Calif., Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Soothe, the world's largest and fastest-growing on-demand massage service, acquired LA-based massage company, Melt.

Available in over 55 cities across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia, Soothe brings the healing power of massage to a client's home, office, or hotel in as little as an hour. The acquisition will help expand Soothe's footprint to a new group of clientele.

Melt is a natural addition to Soothe's platform, as both companies share the mission to empower customers to take charge of their wellness and relaxation needs. Melt's therapists will be notified and invited to join Soothe's network of vetted, certified massage therapists, and current Melt clients will be encouraged to try Soothe.

"We are thrilled to welcome Melt clients and massage therapists to the Soothe network. Like Soothe, Melt was founded on the idea that a spa-quality massage can be enjoyed anywhere: at home, at work, or even your hotel room," said Soothe CEO and Founder, Merlin Kauffman. "Acquiring Melt enables us to further expand and continue providing in-home massage to over 55 cities and four countries worldwide."

"We're excited to migrate our customer base and massage therapist network to Soothe. Melt customers will still have access to their favorite massage therapists, in addition to 10,000 more under the Soothe brand," said Melt Cofounder, Travis Peters. "In addition, they'll now be able to book in-home massage in over 50 major cities, in 4 countries. This acquisition is another step toward making massage therapy more accessible than it has ever been."
