Would You Pay for a Spa Nap?

Just when you think spa service add-ons have figured out how to drain your last dollar along with your stress levels, here comes Kohler Waters Spa in Burr Ridge, Illinois. The spa offers an unusual option with its massages. For $150, you can have a 75-minute massage — or you can opt for a 60-minute treatment followed by a 15-minute nap. Personally, I'd prefer the extra 15 minutes of rubbin', but some perpetually tired patrons might feel otherwise. If you had the option, would you pay to nap?

anyone who wakes me from a 15 minute nap would have to tranquilize me because i am a monster with just 15 minutes naps. :true:

A: anyone who PAYS to nap is an idiot. B: they're even more if they're paying to nap after a massage, when they could just doze off DURING the massage. this is ridiculous!

actually, I just got a massage this past weekend, and afterwards I kind of wanted to just lie there for a little while - but I couldn't. however, it takes me 15 minutes just to fall asleep, so I wouldn't pay - I just wish they would let you lie there for like 10 minutes...

the few spas i frequent have dim comfy quiet rooms, that's where I knock out for some zzZZZzzz after my treatments. Charge me to sleep, ha! so silly.

That s crazy; why not buy the 75 minute massage then go back to your hotel room (or where ever your staying) and take a free 45 minute there.

OMG, this is to funny! I've always said I would gladly slip her some money to let me nap after the massage!! haha..I'm such a dork, but I hate having to get up right away and not just lie there and relax for awhile longer!

15 minutes is not a nap! That's like a long blink. I'd rather get the massage.

I can nap for free once it's over. That's just silly.

I work with 4 LMP's and they say that about 30% of people fall asleep anyways. Why pay extra for a nap? That is just silly.

If I fall asleep, then I fall asleep, but I am not sure that I would want to pay for it

i hate having to get up at the end of a massage. i would love to be able to lay there for 15 minutes. i still think it seems like a waste of money.

I'd take the extra 15 minutes of rubbing and then head home for a nap.

I kind of understand the idea... if some people are so relaxed from the massage that they fall asleep then it would be a way to let them gain from the relaxation. However, I would much prefer the extra 15 min. massage!

I guess it's no different from the 15 minutes of relaxation & meditation at the end of some yoga classes, but I would prefer to keep the massage going. :-)

No, my own bed is exceptionally comfortable, I'll save my napping for home. I'd want the extra 15 minutes of massage!
