Air Pressure Points
Even if you can think of leisure time, how can one possibly get to the good leisure spots
these days when the world political situation has made traveling even more stressful than
before? (As if that wasn't bad enough, rumours of American Airlines declaring
bankruptcy don't help! After all the "own" the Caribbean!)
Sometimes you can't help it though, you just have to get to that regatta! Or the upcoming
Kentucky Oaks. (Yes, it's where the real players go, not the Derby.)
So we rounded up a list of airport spas (massage & beauty spots) where men and women alike
can be padded down, well, after you've been padded down.
BOSTON LOGAN AIRPORT Terminal C
PITTSBURGH Concourse A
Kristin Rhyne's minispa is a bit like what Starbucks is to Barnes & Noble stores. Where you go
to chill for a bit.
Posh care (massages, Seaweed Mint gel pedicures, facials) in a store within a store.
With a spiffy quick checkout.
617 569 7088, Boston
412 472 0470, Pittsburgh
CHICAGO O'HARE Terminal 3
Okay, so it's a little bit like those tiny massages offered to you at the nail salon or on the
streets (suh-c-ary) of certain cities, but cleaner and the staff are nicer. You didn't
have that much time between connections anyway, right?
773 601 0630
NEWARK Terminal C
You might choose Jersey over JFK just for this place. (We said "might"!)
Calming white walls, oak accents, everything
from a hair cut for the guy on his way to a meeting to a last minute wax for the gal on her
way to St. John. Even paraffin treatments, oxygen aromatherapy. Heaps of products in case you
forgot to pack some. Try the Long Haul Reviver leg treatment.
973 242 3444
DETROIT WAYNE McNamara Terminal
Oxygen lounge treatments, massages and that icky but oh so helpful ear candling
treatment. (The flame sucks all the...blech...out of your ear and relieves
air cabin pressure.) Truly gross but then you can tell if your first
class attendant is saying Dom Perignon or Boeuf aux Champignons.
734 247 4770
DENVER Main Terminal & Concourse B
A Massage Inc.
Owner Anita focuses on how much time you have and names the massage accordingly, The
Layover, the First Class. They're the only airport spa with a table massage instead of
just chairs. Oh, and they also can trim your locks and clean up your nails.
303 342 7485
SEATTLE TACOMA C Concourse & North Satellite
How very the Home of Coffee of them to name it like espresso servings. Belly up and
get a Single (15 min), Double (30 min) or Triple Shot (duh 45 min) rub
down without taking off your clothes. Assembly line, but it does
206 985 7177
ORLANDO Main Terminal
A blow out, massage, basics. Not high class beauty, but then again
we don't want to know why you're in Orlando. For last minute primping.
When they make you take off those shoes so they can search inside your heel,
you'll want your feet to be presentable!
407 825 6485
...the newly launched Song Airlines, the new airline from Delta.
