Knowledge working in combination with a powerful healing touch

Sports Massage

I have known Julieta for well over 2 years now. During that time, I have been a patient for treatment of a chronic knee injury. Since working with her I have finished eight road and trail running races, most of them greater than 26 miles, including the Wasatch Front 100 Mile Endurance Run.

During that time, I have been fortunate to learn of Julieta’s personality and character. She is professional, reliable and pleasant. Her level of competence is unsurpassed in the valley. She has been voted best deep-tissue massage therapist by City Weekly and currently contracts for the Real Salt Lake soccer team.

In summary, I give Julieta Hernandez my highest praise and support. She is a highly skilled practitioner, kind-hearted person who would be a reliable contractor for the services requested.

Powerful healing touch

Deep Tissue Massage

My name is John Williams, and I have been a client of Julieta’s since 1998

When I was first introduced to Julieta, my main concern was whether or not she could do “deep-tissue” massage and whether or not she knew what she was doing.  I am happy to say “yes” to both accounts!  Julieta’s work is a complete package – knowledge working in combination with a powerful healing touch. When Julieta works on me, it is truly a gift – one which puts me together in mind, body and spirit.

I truly believe that Julieta and the Matrix Massage Team will be a great complement and benefit…

It’s amazing what relaxation as a couple can do for a partnership

Couples Massage

I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived at Matrix for a couple’s massage with my husband. I was even a little nervous about what it would be like… I didn’t want it to feel uncomfortable or awkward to participate in a massage together. When we entered, my concerns were immediately put to rest. I found the place beautifully and tastefully decorated; from the lobby to the massage room to the bathroom to the steam room to the office, it was absolutely beautiful!

Surrounded by gorgeous tapestries and live plants, earthy colors and natural fabrics, Oriental paintings and aromatherapy, I was transported to a true spa get-away with my sweetheart. We changed into white robes and had some time to sit together while enjoying fresh sliced oranges. Next was a soothing session in the steam room with essential oils. We then went to the massage room together where we experienced what I can only call intense relaxation.

The most rewarding part for me was the opportunity to see my husband so thoroughly relaxed. Every time I opened my eyes, I looked at him lying on the table next to me, a smile on his face and a feeling of peace washing over him. Neither of us were thinking of our ‘to do’ lists… we were just husband and wife enjoying the moment.

After our massages were over, we took some time to simply enjoy how good we felt. It is amazing what true relaxation as a couple can do for a partnership. We were renewed, refreshed, and invigorated. I never realized how important it is to take time like this as a couple. It was just the pick-me-up we needed after many stressful weeks of moving, working, studying, and ‘getting things done’.

Thank you, Matrix Massage, for a unique and totally classy experience.

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.
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.
