Warming up close to home in extremely cold temperatures


LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)—Extremely cold temperatures can make you feel like is no hope of finding warmth close to home.

But, if you can't afford to jet away to a tropical island warmth can be found here at places like a spa or a green house.

Metropolitan Salon and Day Spa in La Crosse has massage enhancements, they said, will warm you up quickly like a 100 degree steam shower, or a Jacuzzi tub to calm you down and loosen your muscles up.

Once you're relaxed and ready for a massage, they have heated tables, heat packs and pillows to keep you warm.

They also offer a hot stone massage with stones that get up to 100 degrees.

"They get pretty warm and they feel really good on the skin because the heat soaks into the muscle and its just a nice relaxation massage and it warms you up really fast," Kyla Novak, Massage Therapist, Metropolitan Salon and Day Spa said.

Kyla said she loves being able to help people find warmth and never has to worry about being cold at work.

At a green house, the climate is designed to mimic Florida or Hawaii.

Inside La Crosse Floral it is usually between 65-80 degrees, no matter the temperature outside.

Linda Zoerb, President of La Crosse Floral said they need to be careful to keep it that warm because now is when they are beginning to grow perennials and plants need warm bottoms to develop roots.

It can't get too warm either.

"We actually open our vents," Zoerb said. "Our window at the top even on cold days because you can't have too much moisture and humidity in here or you'll have disease on plants."

Zoerb said don't be afraid of plants in the winter because they help with humidity so the more plants you have the more humid your house will be.

She said you'll notice a difference in the dryness of your skin.
