Salons take an EASY approach when it comes to men’s spa treatments. They make sure the treatment is physically and quantifiably effective, it involves an activity that makes the treatment different, is sensuous, and gives a youthful appearance when finished.
If you are looking for a way to reinvigorate your body and soul, a spa treatment is in order. Today’s upscale spas don’t have those cliché patchouli-scented services with flower petals scattered everywhere. There’s no sound of wind chimes in the background either. After a long day of work and working out at the gym, all men want is to treat themselves.
Here are the top relaxing treatments for men they should opt for at a spa:
Not all men carve out time in their hectic schedule for a night skincare routine. This is where a facial comes in. You’ll get some buffing, polishing, blackhead removal, and a few other creams that will make your skin shine.
If you are getting a facial for the first time, get a consultation to make sure you are choosing a type that will match your skin. The facial will start with deep cleansing, exfoliation, mask, steam, extractions, and finally, a luxurious scalp, neck, face, and hand massage.
Regular facials remove dead skin, unclog pores and prevent acne. Even beard facials moisturize facial hair and hydrate the skin underneath.
That muscular twinge you are feeling might be because of the incident that happened a week ago, when you braked too hard at the intersection. A massage can free you of this tension and stress and leave you mentally and physically chilled out.
There are different types of massage, which include sports massage, Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point massage, and hot stone massage.
Hydrotherapy and Thalassotherapy
These are water-based treatments that expose your body to underwater high-pressure aquajets. The high-impact treatments open your pores, boost circulation, and tones skin. Depending on your skin type, the treatments might be a little rough. However, in hydrotherapy, the higher the pressure, the more relaxed you will feel.
You have probably seen this treatment being done on people in movies. The most effective acupuncture is one done on the face. It gives you a natural lift, tightens the skin, evens skin tone, and diminishes wrinkles and fine lines.
Acupuncture is also considered a medical treatment that helps treat insomnia, depression, headache, anxiety, sciatica, arthritis, sprains, and neck pain.
Swirling steam soothes your aching muscles, sending you into a relaxation zone. These are just a few of the pleasures of a sauna. Heat rooms have been and are a tradition in several cultures, such as Turkish Baths, American Steam Lodges, and Hammams. The heat surrounding you relieves muscular stress, fixes bad posture, and gives you a warming massage.
Getting a spa treatment is the best way to treat yourself. Start with a simple facial and then progress your way to a massage.
