Layovers at Vancouver International Airport are now an opportunity to indulge and detox at one of the airport outposts of Absolute Spa. In the U.S. and domestic terminals, the spas specialize in jet-lag treatments, such as a 15-minute citrus oxygen boost ($15), the 45-minute anti-swelling leg massage ($20), and a 30-minute facial massage ($30). After that, no doubt you'll be ready for boarding. 877-684-2772; www.absolutespa.com.
