Palm reading provides vague answers about where a man is going, but the art of foot reading conjures up undeniable proof that he just walked through wet cement. Treat feet to a healthy future with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a manicure (a $35 value), pedicure (a $50 value), foot-detox treatment (a $70 value), and a 20- to 30-minute session in the meditation cave (a $25 value) at Matrix Spa & Massage (a $180 total value).
The skillful therapists and aestheticians at Matrix enhance customers' appearance while working to reduce life- and workplace-induced stress. Expand the known boundaries of relaxation during 20–30 minutes in the spa's quiet meditation cave, where guests recline on plump cushions to the soothing sounds of a plashing waterfall and softly whispered thesaurus entries. Then, plunge paws into an ionic foot detox designed to purge toxins and create a sense of energized well-being. Finally, nail gurus will trim and polish finger and toe tips during a classic mani-pedi, imbuing digits with the kind of eye-catching flash usually associated with diamond-studded finger puppets. During the treatment, guests can sip an assortment of specialty teas from Matrix's complimentary tea bar or ask the trained staff for further health and beauty guidance, such as what to do if they suddenly sprout horns.
Matrix Spa & Massage
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.
