Matrix Massage Spa - Valentine’s Day Massage Utah - Couples Massage Valentine's Day Utah

Valentine’s Day is a holiday to celebrate the one you love, but from booking restaurant reservations to choosing the perfect gift, the happy occasion can quickly turn into a stressful whirlwind. Instead, why not give your partner the gift of stress relief for Valentine’s Day? Massages are the perfect, intimate gift to set the mood for the rest of your romantic holiday, and Matrix Spa & Massage is here to offer a wide variety of choices for you and your Valentine.

What is a Couples Massage?

Couples massage therapy is a one-of-a-kind experience that has become popular for couples. It is the ideal means to enjoy stress-relief without having to travel or break the bank. Visitors reap the same incentives of getting away, but in less time! The comfort of the intimate space helps couples reconnect while the stress and anxiety of day-to-day life just dissolves. The numerous package options we offer make an excellent gift this Valentine’s Day!

The first benefit of a couples massage is rather evident: it provides both of you the chance to relax while the therapist provides massage therapy strokes specific to the couples’ wishes. Another benefit is an interaction boost between companions. Many couples report being able to speak even more openly as well as truthfully with their loved one after a couples massage. It gives time for relaxed discussion, which can lead the way for a comfortable union in between both.

Many new to this experience could feel a little bit uneasy, but having your significant other there to offer companionship and solidarity can create an experience unlike any other.

Benefits of Massage

While massages are fun and relaxing, they also come with many mental and physical benefits that will stay with you long after your session is over. Massages have been proven to:

  • Relieve stress
  • Increase circulation
  • Sooth aching muscles
  • Combat anxiety
  • Relieve headaches
  • Treat sport injuries
  • Improve digestion

Types of Massage

Swedish Massage

Swedish massages consist of sliding and kneading movements, as well as rubbing and vibrations along the body. Additionally, your Swedish massage will include joint therapy, which involves the stretching and bending of joints. Swedish massages are perfect for relieving joint and muscle pain from sports injuries, pregnancy, or overuse.

Deep Tissue Massage

In a deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will focus on stretching fascia, the tissue that surrounds all of your bones, muscles, nerves, and organs. True to its name, a deep tissue massage will massage your body layer by layer to relieve even the deepest of muscle pain. After a deep tissue massage, you will find that your posture is improved, your muscles are more flexible, and you have more energy.

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.
If you’re used to Swedish massages, it’s definitely going to feel a little rougher. However, you should always communicate with your massage therapist if the pressure is too much. If you’re tensing up and muscle guarding during a deep tissue massage, the benefits of the massage may be lessened.
It’s important to be realistic about what one deep tissue massage can achieve. Many people want just one session to get rid of all the tension they’ve built up in their body over decades. They ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist just pushes hard enough, all their knots will go away after an hour. They won’t. It’s going to take a few sessions for the best results, based on your body and lifestyle, and increasing the pressure a masseuse uses doesn’t necessarily help. Your problems likely amassed over a lifetime of strain, stress and poor posture. If you have chronic problems, it will probably take a combination of massage, exercise and relaxation techniques to stem the problem.
