Spas have gotten wise, too. The robes are “man sized” so you don’t have to feel uncomfortable, the massage tables are long enough to accommodate your body comfortably and you won’t leave smelling like a rose garden. However, you will leave feeling rested, relaxed, rejuvenated, more confident, happy… basically like a new man.
Men have their escapes too in the form of sports, either viewing or playing, drinks with the guys, the gym, or running. Granted, some prefer more cerebral pursuits like losing themselves in a good book or enjoying a well-played game of chess. However, very few men opt for scheduling an appointment at the spa. Mind you, I’m not making a brash generalization here. There are a few guys who realize the mental and physical health benefits of spa treatments – it’s just not typical… yet.
A facial is a good first treatment for men who are nervous about the whole spa experience. A facial doesn’t have to involve getting your kit off, is relaxing, varied, and most men are surprised at how effective the treatment can be. There is one obvious reason for this. Because men tend to use fewer products such as moisturiser on a daily basis, the effects of a thoroughgoing facial treatment can be correspondingly dramatic.
Saunas and steam rooms. What could be more luxurious than rooms full of swirling steam and jungle heat? This type of treatment is popular with men for various reasons. Heat rooms have a long tradition in many cultures, from Turkish baths to Native American steam lodges, and heat feels like the best kind of self-indulgence. If you’re new to heat treatment, you’ll find the unusual sensations it offers hugely appealing.
Tiny crystals are used to exfoliate the skin to remove fine lines and acne scars. Repeated treatments encourage collagen and elastin growth, further improving skin appearance.
Relax and soothe muscles that have taken a pounding from sports and exercise. This deep massage will help injuries heal as well as prevent additional ones.
