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.

A major crisis hit the business in 2007, which threatened to close its doors forever. Instead of giving up, Julieta reached out for help. The Utah Hispanic Chamber of Commerce responded with assistance in many areas, including a scholarship to return to school and learn how to create and execute a viable business plan. Receiving this help has so adversely impacted her operation’s potential for long-term success.

In 2013, the UHCC recommended Julieta for Goldman Sachs “10,000 Small Business” program. Through that opportunity, and now having a formal Growth Plan, Julieta had become a fully-equipped business executive! Her way of doing business was transformed, and Matrix Spa & Massage has continued year after year to develop into the thriving business it is today. And, Julieta, being the kind of individual that so many along the way recognized as someone worthy of their best help, has certainly proven their great confidence in her to be well-founded. She has become one of her community’s great altruists, consistently contributing over the years to numerous important causes, and always with the highest degree of generosity.

Oakridge School

An exemplary school, Oakridge provides a safe environment with a challenging, yet flexible curriculum to teach children the value of excellence, and promote their success throughout life.

Salt Lake Domestic Violence Coalition

Utah AIDS Foundation

The foundation helps individuals get HIV testing, so they can protect themselves and others. And, the organization fights for increased research to find a cure for AIDS.

Help Support the Community with Matrix Spa & Massage

Julieta’s success story is certainly a circuitous one, about a strong individual who has persevered through a great deal of adversity in her own life, to ultimately make her way to a sustained sense of gratitude and just loving to help others. It’s an uplifting opportunity just to acknowledge this remarkable person.

Matrix Spa & Massage Customer Reviews

My partner and I did massages (Val and Rodrigo are AMAZING, best massage I think I’ve ever had), we also did the foot detox (so cool and feel better and lighter after) and then the hydrotherapy (cold plunge, steam and infrared sauna). It was nice and quiet on Sunday, staff were attentive and helpful (Julietta was SO nice) facility beautiful and clean, fun snacks and drinks, I would just recommend bringing your own swimming suit if you do hydrotherapy, the disposable ones aren’t the comfiest. This was a perfect holiday time out for my partner and I, will definitely come back and definitely recommend.

My husband and I just got a Swedish couples massage and couldn’t be more pleased. The front desk attendant was great and even offered some food recommendations. Our masseuses were Gwen and Rodrigo. I had Gwen and they were amazing, attentive, and took the time to make the experience amazing. My husband had Rodrigo and they were also attentive and made the experience great. We will be back! Thank you!!

I have been going to Matrix for about 4 years now. I really love the massages here and the staff are always very friendly and helpful.I have two therapists that I adore here.Jacqui gives an amazing therapeutic massage. I always leave feeling extremely relaxed, and my muscles feel amazing. I always recommend Jacqui to friends who need help with a specific area of pain or are feeling super stressed out with life. She works magic in her massages. Be prepared though, you may leave her massage so relaxed that you need alternate transportation afterwards!Donna is my other go-to massage therapist. If you enjoy energy work, Donna has an amazing ability to follow your energy. She will literally release chills from head to toe as she works your tight muscles into relaxation. Every massage I've had with her has been amazing. Donna has the ability to send you away with more positive energy and feeling super relaxed. She also does amazing focused therapeutic massage work to release tight muscles and heal painful areas.I so appreciate these two amazing massage therapists and will continue to see them for as long as I can.Pro-tip: When you book at Matrix, call and request the specific massage therapist that you want. If not, sometimes they will change the therapist. This is one thing I think management could improve upon. But, I do want to say, every time I've called to complain about the changed therapist, the front office accommodates my request for Jacqui or Donna immediately.

We had such an amazing experience. We were greeted with kindness and asked if we wanted anything to drink as we walked in. Our massage was relaxing, and hit all my problem area’s. The sauna, steam room, and ice bath were also an unforgettable experience. It’s beautifully decorated and has such a calm relaxing vibe. I’ll definitely be going back.

My husband and I came to Matrix for the Emerald package and had a wonderful experience! Donna May gave me a life-changing massage and we certainly hope to return. The sauna/bath area very much reminded me of a Korean jjimjilbang and had plenty of refreshments, towels, and robes, as well as chlorophyll water. All of the staff was very friendly and skilled—Thank you so much for taking care of us today!!

I received a 90 minute prenatal massage by Jacqui at the recommendation of my sister and it was fantastic. I would return if I lived locally, but I was only in town for a visit. I will say this is not a day-spa experience (no robes, relaxation room, etc.), but the atmosphere was still very relaxing. Jacqui had a pad on the table for me to lay facedown and support my body weight off of my belly, that on its own was great! At one point I felt the need to adjust the way I was laying and she gave me a moment to be sure I was comfortable. It felt like she was very present during my massage, focusing on areas that were requiring extra attention and finding tightness I hadn't even noticed because I was so uncomfortable in other areas. I slept so well the nights following that massage and she definitely helped with my pregnancy pains.

Edit: 09/02 better experience this time due to Rachel who was my therapist. Highly would recommend her services. As for the scheduling I went through the online booking again and actually got a response back within 10 minutes confirming my appointment. I spoke with julieta before my left and she listened intently and with care as I explained my frustration and validated me through the short conversation. I can say that I will continue to come here and getting great care from their massage therapist.Previous post:I have been coming to this spa for massages one and off for a few years now. I have always had a pretty good experience however today was not that case. I had set an online appointment before they opened which showed in their website and schedule to be available. I recieved confirmation that I would be texted to confirm, well 45 minutes after they opened I had still not gotten a confirmation so I went in at the time I scheduled which was 1015, I was told by the masseuse at the computer desk that my appointment was not confirmed, I then said you guys open at 9 it is now 10 a.m. why was I not updated with confirmation if my appointment was accepted or not. I was told we must have been busy. And basically that since it was not cinfirmed then I should have known. They offered to schedule me for 4 p.m tonight which does not work. I left and as I was walking out the door I then recieved the text saying my appointment request was not accepted. Each time I come I spend well over 120 dollars plus tip for one massage and I do it gladly, this lack of care from the staff or even acknowledgeing the frustration makes it to where I have to consider coming back again. In the end massages are good customer service not so, i would not recommend.

I couldn’t be more pleased with this spa. Rachel, the massage therapist I had was incredible. I’ve only had a handful of massages in my life so I went in not feeling super comfortable and didn’t know exactly what to expect. But she explained everything and immediately put me at ease. I did the deep tissue massage, she was extremely intuitive and experienced, she pin pointed every problematic area without me having to say anything.I will be returning, five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great massage! And will be going back for another…. 4 stars because the room/building is old, has an old building smell, and needs a lot of repairs. I think the massage therapists are well trained! Professional and respectful. Like I said “great massage”

Yowza! I just had one of the best deep tissue massages I've ever had. Rachel was super personable and very expressive/willing to share her knowledge with me during my visit. I even got some stretching tips and I will be back just for her! The building was clean and I was super comfy the whole time. Very relaxing atmosphere, as well. My legs thank you!!

Richard H. is amazing - I’ve been going to him consistently for years now, and he’s officially the best. I love that his massages are very dynamic. He uses multiple methods to understand your body as opposed to just finding a spot and sticking to it. All staff are so professional and friendly, and each experience is so relaxing.

I have been coming to Matrix Spa & Massage for about 5 years now and can always get in quickly. I made an appointment yesterday because I woke up with an extremely sore neck from sleeping wrong which resulted in a massive migraine (that I often suffer from) and I left feeling clear headed and amazing! Frederick Salt provided one of the best massages I have ever received. He took the time to listen to my needs and put real attention and care into his practice. He has a ton of experience in massage therapy and I would recommend him to anyone needing a great massage that’s well worth the money.

This place is interesting and my therapist was definitely unique. He only massaged my upper body and told me to breathe into my collar bone and other instructions that I didn't quite know how to follow. My elbow was sore for a day or two after. I do think he was genuinely trying to help, but I would have liked more explanation of what was the rationale behind the movements and instructions. I also would have preferred to have received some work on the legs, but again 60 minutes sometimes isn't enough time I guess. Other members of group liked there experience more and described there massages very positively. The offer to return gratis by the owners in their comments below is a nice sentiment and a testament to how they care for their business. (Unfortunately I was visiting from out of town so cannot do so but again appreciate it)

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!
