Want to get a massage on your afternoon off or get some friends together on a weekend for a day of facials and foot baths?

Kansas City offers a variety of self-care services, including swim/float spas and massage, to help you relax and rejuvenate. Need a therapeutic treatment for a skin condition or other health concern? Our city is also home to medical spas.

Looking for a little pampering on a budget? We've got that covered too. Here's a rundown of what you can expect when visiting spas in Kansas City.

Cheap Spas with Chic Amenities

A lot of people think a spa experience is out of reach for them if they want to do it on a budget. Fortunately, spas in Kansas City cater to a variety of budgets, so even if you don't want to shell out a lot of cash, you can still treat yourself to some TLC.

Some of these places allow you to get a package of services for less than you would pay for each one individually.

Low-cost spas offer a variety of services, from 30-minute massages to facials, waxing, and other rejuvenating skin treatments, at a reasonable cost. Even better, some of them have promotional offers where first-time clients can get a massage or other service at a discount since they're new to the business.

Experience Restoration at Medical Spas

A day at the spa can actually be good for your health—especially if you're dealing with issues such as muscle injuries, skin problems, or stress.

Many spas offer therapeutic massage, which can give you a host of health benefits, such as improved circulation and a reduction in inflammation and pain. 

Back2Body offers "fertility massages" intended to increase women's chances of conception by improving circulation to reproductive organs and balancing hormones. To help moms-to-be manage lower back pain and other pregnancy-related problems, the spa also provides prenatal massages.

Many spas specialize in esthetics, which involves a variety of techniques applied to the top layer of the skin (the epidermis) to minimize wrinkles, cellulite, and other imperfections. These modalities boost the body's production of collagen to achieve a more streamlined, youthful look.

Mia Bella Donna Medspa is a medical spa located within a cosmetic surgery facility. The spa provides a variety of skin treatments and is overseen by medical doctors.

Relax at Massage Spas

Most spas in Kansas City offer massage services. Some specialize in therapies for the feet, while others focus on the whole body. Massage therapists use a variety of techniques, such as Thai, Swedish, and deep-tissue massage. In most cases, spas will tailor the treatment to target muscle groups that are especially painful or tight with tension.

Looking for a massage with a little hydrotherapy thrown into the mix? Total Bliss Massage and Float Spa is one spot that doubles as a swim/float spa and a place where you can get some deep-tissue therapy. Other services include cupping and scrubs for a total-body regenerative experience.
