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.
It 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, past the extensive licensure exam, and have paid any relevant licensing fees.
Every insurance plan works a little differently, so your best bet is to contact your insurer directly. Some plans do cover alternative therapies including chiropractic and massage. You will likely need a doctor's prescription first. If you don't have health insurance, or if it doesn't cover massage therapy, you can find massage therapy coupons and discounts on our site.
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 to be 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.
My first time visiting Matrix and I somehow booked the wrong service, but I'm not even mad about it! (I booked Thai massage online but when I got there,...

Had my first massage here yesterday and was super impressed overall. I booked in with Donna, she did a great job and really worked into my problem areas. She was professional and friendly. Have already booked in for a follow up session.

My husband and I have been going here for 7 years now. We have never once been disappointed. They have an amazing environment, fantastic prices and every therapist we have had has been stellar. 10/10 recommend every time! We had a massage yesterday with Donna May and Rachel K. They both were phenomenal and very professional. We love it here!!!

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!

Me and my girl got a ruby couples package and it was fantastic just what I needed.

I had the best massage ever from Richard. I have chronically tight muscles and he helped me so much. Highly recommend!!
01:55 16 Mar 21
Got the best massage I've had in a long time from Richard. He was really good at making me breath into the tight spots which allowed them to release. He was really knowledgeable and had my posture looking better than it has in ages! Highly recommend! Will be back next time I'm in town!

Donna May was amazing. I've had a ton of massage and I've never had something so good at such a good value in the US. If I lived in Salt Lake City, I'd go back to see her specifically.

My hubby and I came in for a couples massage but due to a mishap with the room we had to be separated. Other than that we really enjoyed the massages. I had Rachel and she was great. Very informative, friendly, and respectful. It was very clean and a calming atmosphere. Overall 5 stars.

Jacqui was very professional and knowledgeable.I felt like a newborn afterwards and I will definitely be back!
01:11 13 Feb 21
I had a delightful and safe experience here with my SO for a couples massage and hydrotherapy session. Donna May and Rachel were great therapists that asked questions and delivered as needed. The entire experience was so relaxing and I wish we could have stayed longer
23:24 06 Feb 21
Rachel did a prenatal massage and she was excellent. My husband booked it for on their website for $70 but the owner told me at checkout it was $80. I'm disappointed that she did that.
16:53 31 Jan 21
I booked 5 massages for my sisters and I. The staff worked to find a place in their schedule for us and made it such a nice experience. Personally for me, Richard was so phenomenal! He was very professional and talked as much as I wanted but most of the massage I just wanted to relax. He calmly cued me to breath to release the tension of the muscle he was working, giving gentle education. I received the perfect pressure that I requested, which I like a lot of pressure. I would definitely book here again!
01:15 29 Jan 21
Amazing experience. Purchased a Groupon, and wasn't disappointed. Jaqui is very good at what she does. It was only a half hour swedish, but what she did in that half hour was amazing! Plus the infarred sauna was dope. Haven't sweat that much in a long time.
16:29 25 Jan 21
This was a first time massage for both me and my spouse. We used the Ruby Package so we could enjoy the hydrotherapy circuit. Our therapists were Donna May and Jacqui and they were both amazing! I loved that they explained the whole process and really made us feel comfortable. We would definitely recommend!
02:54 08 Jan 21
Matrix Massage is my favorite in Salt Lake. The staff is friendly and the work is amazing! I recently went in for some nerve pain and as soon as i left I felt 100 times better! Definitely recommend and I will definitely be going back soon!
16:25 03 Jan 21
We had an amazing couples massage, the staff was very professional and friendly, and the building was clean and well-kept! Such a great experience, will be coming back for sure!

I happened to be in Slc area for the day and decided I needed a massage. I booked the 90 minute deep tissue massage and they got me booked in with less than a 45 minute notice to my surprise! There was nice calming music and the receptionist was very friendly. Jacque my therapist was very knowledgeable and professional in her work. She asked about the problematic areas and made sure to put some extra effort into them. That was the best massage I have ever received, you just can’t put a price on the pain relief I experienced I will most certainly be back!

My wife and I have been going to Matrix for several years now. Always a couples massage with reflexology. Great experience! Calm environment with a relaxing experience. My therapist this last even gave me some stretches I could do at home for my back.
16:53 25 Feb 20
I was so impressed with my massage, it was unexpected and exactly targeted what was hurting. I will be back.
17:07 24 Feb 20
I have been to a few places around town over the years and i find myself always coming back to Matrix. They offer a large variety of massage therapists to choose from.

I have known the owner of Matrix Spa & Massage for decades, long before her business was even a dream. I marvel at her success in growing a 5-star spa. From my first step through the door I am greeted by a welcoming, informative, happy-to-serve-you receptionist. The environment is peaceful, calming, inviting throughout my visit. I have had the privilege of many massages from owner Julieta Hernandez. She demonstrates brilliance in creating a business that develops exceptional therapists in a nourishing environment. Aches diminish. Massages never disappoint. Thank you for the comfort and relief. Unbeatable.

Great deep tissue massage the first time I went. I went a second time and it was even better! Went for a 3rd time and still great. Making progress with some tight back muscles.
03:36 13 Feb 20
One day I had a terrible massage on my anniversary and when I emailed the spa they took care of me with a make up massage. The second massage was with Troy and it was absolutely amazing. He listened to everything I asked of him and was one of the best massages I have had in a long time. Troy and Julieta (the owner) are the reasons I will be back!
18:23 12 Feb 20
We had a great experience - again. Our couples massage was awesome. Both therapist we very good and put our concerns first. They asked the right questions and gave great advice post massage!
