Spa Patrons Pay To Be Tickled Into Relaxation In Madrid (VIDEO)

Would you pay $60 an hour to be tickled?

Customers of CosquilleArte in Madrid, Spain, are paying exactly that to laugh the stress away with the help of a gentle tickle.

Masseurs or “tickologists,” as they prefer to be called, use feathers, fingers and a wire head massager to lightly caress their customers. Like most other massages, spa patrons relax in a dimly lit room, with soothing music and candles. Instead of pinching or rubbing, light touches are focused on the feet, calves and back area.

The world’s first tickle spa opened in June, however, you can take a glimpse inside the spa above.
