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.
