In the comfort of a private room, Just Massage's therapists consult with clients and their old school yearbooks to determine the most probable source of stress to meet each client's unique needs. A deep-tissue massage utilizes intense pressure to loosen buried muscular knots, and a Swedish massage channels the long, flowing strokes of '70s disco fever to promote blood circulation to the appendages. Pregnancy massages, couples-massage lessons, warm tables and hot-oil massages are also available.
When working to get clients into a relaxed, meditative state of being, a good spa can’t just rely on one technique. That’s why the staffers at Therapeutix Mind & Body have gained national certifications and master-level achievements in a range of Eastern and Western relaxation techniques. They specialize in massages, incorporating reflexology, cold-stone migraine relief, and aromatherapy to tackle tension both externally and internally. They can add a range of relaxing treatments to their massages, including essential oils, hand and foot scrubs, and 3-D glasses. In addition to their massages, they offer body-contouring packages that use ultrasonic waves and a radio-frequency laser or detoxifying wraps to hone trouble areas.
The talented massage therapists at Massage & Serenity provide a wide variety of treatments, from relaxing Swedish massages to toxin-releasing deep-tissue treatments. Frequent clients can even become a member, which grants them discounts on treatments, products, and gift cards for family and friends.
At Matrix Spa & Massage, a relaxing escape doesn't have to end once you leave the massage table. Helmed by Julieta Hernandez, a former reporter who moved to the United States to learn English but soon discovered her calling for massage therapy, she founded Matrix Spa & Massage in 2001, and has since received many accolades, including from the staff of Salt Lake City Weekly for "Best Magic Fingers" as well as from the government of Salt Lake City for sustainable environmental practices. When clients step inside the walls, the spa is immediately set apart from others by its meditation cave. Here, technicolor sconces illuminate plush recliners within the soothing space. Sessions in the meditation cave can be booked with or without any other service, ensuring anyone can stop by to find a quiet space to read or shout "Echo!"
Though the meditation cave sets the spa apart, the massages have won its loyal client base, who range from professional athletes to federal judges. Available massages include classic Swedish and deep-tissue sessions along with more specialized modalities, such as the expertise massage—a mix of 10 different techniques, including acupressure and Thai massage—and the four-hands massage. And, in addition to its signature muscle-soothing services, the spa also offers a private steam room, facials, and body scrubs.
Licensed massage therapist; certified personal trainer; yoga teacher. Dallin S. Larsen wears more hats than a milliner who wants to keep his hands free. He's trained all over the world, from the Renaissance College of Massage in Utah to the Yoga Vidya Gurukul ashram in India. And though this training casts a wide net, Dallin's mission can be distilled into a single goal: to help make people happy. He achieves this through a menu of services that address both the mind and the body. He can massage away aches and pains, guide clients on their path to weight loss, or even help calm minds with private yoga classes in a client's own home.
