Long gone are the days when a day at the spa was a women’s retreat. At Body by Brooklyn, nearly 40 percent of our clientele is made up of men who come to us for a relaxing escape or to soothe sore muscles after a long day at work or a particularly brutal gym session. With so many guys choosing to kick back at the spa, we thought we’d put together some of our favorite treatments to inspire all you hard working men to book some downtime.
Deep Tissue Massage
A massage might seem like an obvious choice, but many men agree that a good one is hard to find. We love a strong, deep tissue massage because our therapists are expertly trained in getting out all the lumps, bumps, aches and pains. This type of massage might not be the most relaxing kind, but trust us; you’ll leave feeling as good, if not better, than new.
Hot Towel Facial
No one likes dry, scratchy skin, acne, and ingrown hairs. Our hot towel facial was designed with men in mind and it works to replace all the vital nutrients that shaving depletes from the skin. Plus it leaves your face fresh, clean and clear with a mega dose of moisture.
With trips to the beach and poolside barbecues dotting the calendar, a body polish is the best way to slough off old skin cells, get rid of that back acne, and treat your skin with a glow from head to toe. Plus, we’ll let you in on a little secret – soft skin is a point scorer with the ladies.
Last but not least, this gentleman’s favorite is not for the faint at heart. A platza is a traditional Russian treatment performed in a sauna where the guest is scrubbed and tapped with an oak leaf brush to open up the pores and detoxify the body from head to toe. Dudes love the high heat combo to sweat out all the nasties and revitalize both the skin and the internal organs. Follow this one up with a dip in our cold plunge pool.
There you have it. With so many treatments to choose from, it can be hard to decide how to spend a few hours of relaxation time. But after a few cocktails from our full-service bar and a session steaming and soaking in the Wet Lounge, you’ll get used to the idea of kicking back and relaxing. We promise!
With Father’s Day on the way, now is a great time to drop a hint and let the lady in your life know that a pampering session would make a perfect gift. Check out our monthly spa specials here.
