Best Tax Day Breaks

Tax Day is upon us once again. If you're a model of efficiency, you've long since filed your taxes and can pat yourself on the back today, relax, and/or have a nice dinner with family or friends. If you've put things off you can do those things, too; but first, you'll have to file your taxes -- or file for an extension. If you thought you were already late, we have some good news for you! This year, Tax Day falls on Monday, April 18th, 2011, rather than the traditional April 15th so the nation's capital could celebrate Emancipation Day on the 15th. Now, procrastinators rejoice. Here are some things to look forward to, once you're done!

Let your cares drift away while you lie (fully clothed) on this special bed while enclosed water jets pulse and massage you. It's almost like being in a hot tub – without getting wet!

We called around and found some local wellness centers, chiropractic practices, and fitness clubs that are offering this tax day deal. Some sites offered the session on Friday, while others are offering the HydroMassage session today, so be sure to call ahead! Even you miss out on the freebie, many of these sites offer HydroMassage for about $15 a session or about $1 per minute; so depending how stressful your taxes have been, it might be well worth it!
