Ahhh! Summer is finally here! It’s time to ditch the old routine and do those things you missed during the winter months.

What about you? Don’t forget to take a breather and relax with the help of a massage from Matrix Massage. Let the Best Salt Lake City massage therapists show you the mental and physical benefits of massage and a full line-up of relaxing services.

Matrix Spa & Massage Loves Giving Back to the Community

Caring Hands

Where Does Our Passion for Giving Back Come From?  

The passion for giving back all started when the owner was a struggling student living at the YWCA and attending Utah College of Massage Therapy in 1998. Julieta became involved in the Y’s program to assist young women in transition and gave massages for donations to support herself while going to school. Two women who received massages from Julieta  during those early days prior to graduation remain her clients today! In this era of shifting business loyalties, these relationships are a testament to exceptionalism in cultivating enduring professional relationships.

In 2001, Julieta launched Matrix Spa & Massage, with a mission to create a place of healing, for herself and others. And, she has been healing ever since—for more than 20 years.

Massage Therapy FAQ’s

The law always requires that you be appropriately covered with sheets or towels to keep you comfortable and warm. If you start feeling uncomfortable or exposed, speak up. Your therapist will respect your wishes and work with you to make the massage session a comfortable one.
No, only undress as much as you are comfortable with. Some people prefer undressing completely, while others prefer to keep undergarments on. You'll have privacy in your massage room to undress before the session and redress afterwards.
How often you should get a massage depends on your massage therapy goals. Some people get a monthly massage to manage stress or to prevent health problems. Others opt for weekly sessions if they need relief from injuries and chronic tension.
Licensing and certification mean that the massage therapist can legally practice massage in your city or state. To get this license, they must have performed several hours of training at an accredited school, passed the extensive licensure exam, and have paid any relevant licensing fees.
How much depends on how pleased you are with the service and how much the massage costs (the full price, not any discounted fees). One easy trick is to think about how you would tip a waiter after a similarly priced restaurant meal. This is often 15-20% or more if you received exceptional service.
Let your massage therapist know before the session if there are areas on your body that you don't want touched. They will have the training and experience to give you a therapeutic massage while working around ticklish or sensitive places like your feet or abdomen.
Yes, absolutely. You should always speak up if something is uncomfortable. Secondly, keep the lines of communication open during deep tissue massage or sports injury massages. Your therapist needs the feedback to work on you properly and without aggravating an injury.
 
On the other hand, if you are looking for relaxation, it's often best not to talk unless necessary. This lets your mind as well as your body release tension. With the right mindful breathing technique, you may even achieve a stress relieving meditative state during the massage.
Most likely, unless your doctor says otherwise. Prenatal massage can reduce and relieve common pregnancy issues like lower and upper back pain, sciatic nerve irritation, swelling, tension headaches, heartburn and constipation, and more. Let your massage therapist know that you're pregnant so they can use the right techniques during the session.
