For those in Kansas City, massage therapy may be the only thing more soothing than the sound of the area’s thousands of fountains. So don’t hesitate to unwind with a massage; Kansas City has plenty available. Many hotels in Kansas City house spas with a host of luxurious massage options, but there are also quite a few freestanding spas to choose from. For example, the 7,500-square-foot Spa on Penn uses both Swedish and deep-tissue techniques in its popular restorative massages. Sunlight Day Spa sits just outside the city in Overland Park, and it’s worth the trip to Kansas, if only for its combo massage. This soothing session combines the long, flowing strokes of the spa’s relaxation massage with muscle-melting hot stones and a blend of aromatherapy oils.
