You are travelling abroad through a large Schiphol international airport and your next flight is in a couple of hours from now. Turn that routine waiting into fun and relaxation. There is no better place to relax during a journey than in a spa. Both men and women appreciate about airport spas is that no prior appointments are needed and that it makes good use of their time. An additional advantage of these spas is that they work long hours, sometimes non-stop, so that they are available to all travellers regardless of their schedules.
The chair massage is one of the most popular airport spa services. You sit fully clothed in a an ergonomically designed chair that cradles you face while the massage therapist works on your back and shoulders. a 10-15-minute session normally works off hours off stress.
Amsterdam’s Airport Schiphol is home to an U.S.-based XpresSpa on the first floor in Departure Lounge 2 and no appointment is necessary. The spa features treatments tailored to the length of time that passengers have available, including some that can be packed into as little as 10 minutes. Its services include: skin care, manicure, beauty treatment, head/neck massage, full body massage, and foot reflexology massage, “Pedi-Xpress” and even waxing. Fast treatment options are available for travelers with little time to spare. In addition, travellers can purchase items for personal care: hair brushes, eye masks, aroma, soaps, and candles.
Another refreshing option at the Schiphol Airport is the “Back to Life” spa located at Departures, in the corridor (Holland Boulevard) between the E-Gates and the F-Gates, behind Customs. They offer 10- and 20- minute chair massages and aqua massage treatments.
During aqua massage you lie down in a special bed-like canister fully clothed while special jets pulse water back land forth over the body without getting you wet. It increases the circulation.
