Think spas are strictly reserved for women? Think again. Research show that more men visit spas today than ever before. No longer must his romance-seeking wife or partner drag a man into the spa. Men have become acclimated to this once-mysterious world, and they are having a growing influence over the services now offered by spas. However, men do not have the long history of personal grooming habits that women do but still want to appreciate that their skin feels and looks better afterwards, or that their muscles feel relieved.
Today’s modern man has nothing to fear and everything to gain from a spa visit. A good spa will treat men like kings. This, of course, is no more than they deserve.
Some of the most popular men’s spa treatments are:
Deep tissue massages: Massages are always going to be a popular treatment for men as they have an obvious recognizable physical purpose in addition to health and wellness benefits due to high stress lifestyles. A great massage can get to the root of any problems and leave you feeling “back in control” of your own body.
Facials: Facials of any kind are highly recommended since most men are extremely hard on their faces with shaving! We find that men, in general, prefer simple skin care routines to more complex, time-consuming methods. And because men tend to use fewer products such as moisturizers on a daily basis, the effects of a thorough facial treatment can be surprising dramatic for them.
Manicure & Pedicures: For men, the wild world or mani’s and pedi’s can be an incredibly scary place and since many men do not know how (or just don’t) moisturize and trim their cuticles and nails – it makes sense for men to look to the pros to take care of their hands and feet. Manicures and pedicures are actually a great way to keep your hands and feet happy and healthy. Taking an hour or so to get a manicure and pedicure can give a man some down time to relax and unwind from his hectic lifestyle.
Men are putting more effort into their appearance than ever before. Many hit the gym; others treat themselves with spa treatments for the sake of improving their physical, mental and spiritual health. Whatever the reason may be, the human body posses amazing healing powers, and the greatest way to experience these energies is by allowing it to rest and work its magic.
While many men are happy sticking to a basic massage, a lot of men want the ultimate spa experience and as a result, additional body treatments and spa packages are a great idea. Give us a call! It would be our pleasure to assist you in scheduling your spa treatment for the man in your life.
