Swedish Massage in Utah

If you’re looking for the type of massage that has you feeling weightless, both physically and emotionally, the Swedish massage is for you. The Swedish massage is one of the most widely practiced and taught massage globally, and for a good reason: it fully revitalizes the mind, body, and soul. This is due to the fact that dopamine and serotonin, the happiness hormones, are set free through the tissues of the body, which result in an overall feeling of satisfaction and greater well-being. At Matrix Spa and Massage in Salt Lake City, our experienced and caring massage therapists offer the relaxation of a Swedish massage as well as a variety of other treatments to suit your needs.

Swedish Massage Techniques

During the daily stresses of our lives, our bodies respond by manufacturing a lot of stress hormones, which wreak havoc on our body and mind when left unattended. Physical aches and conditions such as digestive problems, inflammation, and loss of sleep start to occur. The goal of the Swedish massage is to significantly decrease the amount of stress hormone pooled up in the body, which leaves you with a relaxed, healed body and a clear mind that lasts long after the massage has finished.

The Swedish massage specializes in light to medium-pressure strokes that soothe the body and mind. These techniques also work spectacularly well for enhancing recovery after exercise, eliminating the built-up toxins in the muscles.

Swedish massages were specifically developed to be therapeutic as it slowly brings blood back to the core from the extremities without increasing the heart’s workload.

This massage is also beneficial for flexibility of the ligaments and tendons, relaxing the nerves and invigorating the skin.

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.
