If yoga doesn’t interest you, consider a massage. XpresSPA, the largest airport spa provider, and one of its competitors, Be Relax, each offer a 60-minute table massage for $120. If you don’t have an hour (or longer) to spare, most major airports also offer shorter chair massages.
Travelers remain fully clothed and are seated in a special chair that cradles the head while massages are administered by licensed therapists. While waiting at Detroit Metro Airport for a connecting flight to Dallas, Madonna Kilcollum of Canterbury, Connecticut, decided she’d get a 30-minute in-chair massage. “It was fabulous,” she says about her $60 treatment. “The masseuse worked on the huge knot in my neck, plus my shoulders and legs. It was a really nice way to spend some time before my flight and be pampered.”
