Airport wellness at terminals has come a long way. Airports are beginning to recognize how important the health of their travelers is. If you’ve arrived early (good for you!) or your flight has been delayed or canceled (sorry!), having extra time and nothing to do can be frustrating.
Many of us are left asking, where can I go to relax? Increasingly sophisticated airport spas continue to pop up, but they’re not always the easiest to find. Nor do you know if your wellness goose chase will result in the kind of thing you’re looking for.
If you’re traveling through Sea-Tac Airport in Seattle, Washington, you’ve got some excellent options. Use this handy list next time you travel to find a bit of zen and pampering at Sea-Tac.
