Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and for most people, this means scrambling to come up with the perfect gift idea. No matter what your age, there’s a good chance that your mom is one of the most important people in your life.

Rather than going with the “typical” gift of flowers or a restaurant gift card this Mother’s Day, why not do something extraordinary? You can’t go wrong with presenting that special woman in your life with a Matrix Spa & Massage gift card; such a gift provides an excellent opportunity for Mom to feel better, look better, sleep better, and enjoy some much-deserved relaxation.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the inflammation or entrapment of nerves within the carpal tunnel of the wrist, which can cause pain and numbness. The carpal tunnel contains the median nerve and a number of muscle tendons. The nerve controls both feeling and control of your thumb and all of your fingers except for your little finger. The pain of carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve, sometimes by fluid buildup or other conditions that can cause the carpal tunnel to decrease in size, such as swelling.

Matrix Massage Spa - The best Massage Place in Utah for Thai Massage

Wouldn’t it be fantastic to receive the benefits of trigger point, neuromuscular therapy, stretching, and energy work all at once? This is exactly what Thai massage can offer. The exciting thing about Thai massage is how unique the practice is. Thai massage is a deep, full-body treatment. Without the use of oils or creams, certified therapists perform the massage using their feet, knees and body weight – all while the client is fully clothed. Your therapist will start at the feet, and progress up to the head. Instead of a massage table, the therapist uses a padded mat on the floor to perform your massage. These unique characteristics of Thai massage definitely offer many benefits to clients. We will look at a few of them below.
