Having visited clients in hotels and ski resorts for seven years before establishing her own practice, licensed massage therapist Allison and her other therapists has amassed a repertoire of luxurious add-ons to her services. Her wintertime patrons rest atop heated tables, for example, and she swaddles limbs in warm towels upon request. Guests can even choose how they would like their aromatherapy oils to be distributed: directly on the skin, diffused through the air, or delicately combed into their mustache.
Allison still makes house and hotel calls to complement her in-spa treatments, which cover a range of specialty massage techniques. Her signature modality mixes Swedish, Russian, and trigger-point therapy for a medley of surface- and deep-tissue work, whereas a pure relaxation massage relies on Swedish kneads to lull muscles into slack serenity. She and her apprentices have also mastered the use of hot stones, salt scrubs, and paraffin wraps to enhance their appointments. Whether her customers are hoping for pinpointed, intense strokes or a romantic couples massage, they can anticipate calming music and intuitive touch from the team.
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.
Massage and Fitness SLC helps clients not only build stronger bodies in group exercise classes, but also unwind after their workouts with custom massages. Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth Anne Galloway targets testy areas such as the triceps and glutes with the gliding kneads of Swedish massage as well as the probing motions of the deep-tissue technique. Scalp massages melt away tension using hot oil and pressure-point stimulation, and reflexology sessions activate specific sites on the feet, hands, and ears to promote improved health in corresponding areas of the body, including the liver, bladder, and dorsal fin.
Though it's been half a decade since massage therapist Andrew Newman graduated from the acclaimed Healing Mountain Massage School, he hasn't stopped learning since then. He consistently stays up to date on the latest modalities and techniques to provide the most effective treatment for each client. That means the service menu has a lot more to it than the standby staples of Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu massages—though those are certainly some of the available specialties. Take a look at some of the less common treatments you'll find at Balance Bodywork and Massage:
Four-handed massage: Designed with pure relaxation in mind, this pampering massage ropes in two therapists, who collectively use their four hands to release muscular tension and instill inner peace with traditional Swedish or deep-tissue strokes.
Lomi Lomi: Considered a sacred massage in Hawaii, this treatment relies on long, flowing strokes along the entire body (literally from head to toe).
Thai yoga: This treatment combines the muscle-stretching therapy of Thai massage with the restorative nature of yoga. The therapist uses assisted stretching, gentle rocking, and accupressure techniques to help improve posture, breathing, flexibility, and general well-being.
Lymphatic massage: The two words that best describe this style are "light" and "slow." Therapists employ a very gentle rhythmic technique to stimulate the lymphatic system and boost the body's natural detoxification methods.
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.
