infrared sauna and utah massage therapy

What is an Infrared Sauna?

Infrared saunas use a special type of light to create a heated environment that enables the elimination of toxins, enhanced pain relief, continued relaxation after a massage, and many other types of health benefits. Like traditional saunas, an infrared sauna uses heat to effect positive changes in your body. The primary difference between an infrared sauna and traditional sauna is that an infrared sauna works to gently heat only your body, while a traditional sauna heats the entire space, which can lead to experiencing uncomfortably high temperatures. Learn how time spent in an infrared sauna can positively impact your own health.

Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy

Infrared light saunas imbue your entire body with gentle and beneficial heat, which can enable you to experience healing and overall well-being from head to toe. Consider these advantages of infrared sauna use.

1. Detoxification: the heat generated in your body during your time in an infrared sauna enables the shedding of toxins. When your core heats and you begin to sweat, toxins like heavy metals and chemicals are released.

2.  Anti-Aging and Skin Purifications: your skin can tell the truest story of your overall health. Premature wrinkling, acne, psoriasis and other blemishes can be the result of toxins and bacteria negatively impacting your body. Time in an infrared sauna can help release issues hidden in your skin and make you look – and feel – younger and healthier!

3. Pain Relief: many different medical issues lead to the pain you feel in your body, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, lupus and migraine headaches. A visit to an infrared sauna can promote muscle relaxation, reduce joint inflammation, and remove toxins that may be exacerbating pain.

4. Relaxation: heat from an infrared sauna works to directly combat cortisol, keeping this hormone in check to reduce the feeling of stress and promote relaxation throughout your body.

5. Cell Health: infrared heat can enable the continuous cleansing of your circulatory system plus the release of toxins, ensuring that your body is able to perform optimally at the cellular level.

6. Improved Circulation: different health issues can impede circulation throughout your body, from arterial blockages to impingements and sluggish blood transport. The gentle heat generated in your body while in an infrared sauna can help clear blockages, release impingements and encourage healthy blood flow.

7. Lower Blood Pressure: whether your blood pressure is elevated due to stress or underlying health issues, a trip to an infrared sauna can help to reduce this issue. By helping to promote relaxation, working to release toxins, and providing gentle and comforting heat throughout your body, you can experience both immediate and longer-term reductions in your blood pressure.

8. Weight Loss: just like aerobic exercise increases your core temperature and heart rate to help shed pounds, the generated heat from an infrared sauna can also lead to burned off calories and weight loss. In addition, shedding toxins, improving underlying health issues like hormonal imbalances and reducing stress levels can also promote weight loss.

9. Wound Healing: enhanced circulation, disposed toxins, improved cellular health and optimized immune system responses are just some of the benefits that can be achieved through time spent in an infrared sauna – and all of those benefits can enable faster healing for both exposed injuries and internal wounds after surgical interventions.

Matrix Spa & Massage Customer Reviews

Donna May rocked my world - the best massage I've gotten in salt lake so far and I've tried a few different spas at this point. The level of pressure, the intuition, the obvious mastery of her craft - cannot recommend her enough. She is a neck wizard.

Best Massage I have ever had. Donna May provided a relaxing and therapeutic massage. She always had the perfect amount of pressure and seemed to tailor the massage just to me. I will book with Donna May as often as I can. She is also such a kind person.

Well worth it!My wife and I were needing time to unwind and relax, I bought the Emerald Package, it was well worth the money! The amount of time and detail the staff took us was amazing. We left feeling relaxed and ready to tackle the world again. We are going to be coming back. The spa downstairs was amazing, what a way to finish off the night after a massage. Thank you for making our night!

There are so many good things to say about this place. The biggest shout out to Donna May who gave me the best deep tissue massage I’ve ever had in my life. Repeat: the BEST deep tissue massage I’ve ever had IN MY LIFE. The price was $95 for an hour.Other pros: they got me in on a Sunday.The facility is very clean.They have optional spa upgrades (see photos).Cons: They have this required form where you have to fill out medical information. I don’t like providing my medical information and it wasn’t necessary for this type of appointment.The booking process could be simpler but it’s not a make or break.Overall, I had a nice time and look forward to booking with Donna May in the future.

My mom and I did the mother and daughter package and overall it was a really awesome experience! The place was under construction but they were able to accommodate our needs, the only downside is I never even knew our massage therapists names and I am kinda bummed about not being able to utilize the hot tub or sauna but I guess that means I’ll just have to come back another time! (:

A delicious sanctuary. I felt the worries of the week being worked out of my body. Richard was my “ Sensei” masseuse educating me on muscle connections and guidance on how to release tension. This is now my spiritual hideaway once a month.

This was my first visit to Matrix. And I can't wait to go back! I've already scheduled my next massage.The pricing is excellent. You totally okay for their quality and expertise, without paying any markups I've seen at other places. What I received was worth every penny and more.Atmosphere is amazing. I felt welcomed and at ease. It was peaceful and serene. Everything was so nice and clean, and the Covid distancing was easy and encouraged. I got a couple's massage with my partner. The room was nice and big, and the tables were wider than I'm used to at other places.Both therapists were very professional. They listened to my wants and needs. Their instructions were simple and given in a friendly, adult manner. All the things I asked for were given in spades. This is the first time in my whole life a therapist actually respected my wish for soft pressure on my lower back and hips. I can't believe it still. All my covered areas were respected. Rolling over was easy and done with privacy.It feels GREAT. Best massage ever, no doubts. I left feeling so much more relaxed and loose than when I came in. I used to get 3-5 massages a year. But then Covid happened, so I haven't had a massage in over a year. The tightness and knots were no joke. But my therapist worked them out and loosened me up like it was nothing. Like I said, my request for different pressures in different places was honored.I couldn't have had a better experience, there's just no way. Five stars? 100 stars!
