Do Manly Guys Get Spa Treatments?
“The kind that’s serious about maintaining, or enhancing his athletic performance, his mental edge and his all around well-being,” according to Spa Grand Traverse spa director Dawn Olsen.
“Just think…the best remedy for a golfer’s tight back, kayaker’s sore arms or cyclists cramped legs is a deep tissue massage that relaxes and recharges,” affirms Dawn.
“We perform a lot of men’s services here. With 54-holes of acclaimed golf at the Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, we enjoy a steady demand for our combo golf and spa packages. And, we’re not necessarily seeing the golf consumed by the man and spa services by his wife. Couples are golfing a spa-going during their visits.”
Another popular men’s tailor-made treatment at Spa Grand Traverse is their “Repair and Restore Men’s Facial.
“A man attacks his face with a razor daily, so it makes good sense to do something forgiving for one’s face. Our 50-minute Men’s Facial provides a deep cleansing, exfoliation and hydration therapy along with a light neck, shoulder and scalp massage.”
Mineral salt soaks, detoxifying body treatments and stress-relief body wraps are also popular with male guests.
Insuring that the Spa is inviting to its male patrons, is the Spa’s modern lounge décor. It’s neutral, has a wood-burning stone fireplace and other natural elements.
To get more men to test drive a spa treatment or two, Dawn notes a Gift Certificate is a great way to introduce one’s guy to the energy-boosting benefits of massage therapy and other spa treatments, especially if it’s for a Couple’s Massage. Spa Grand Traverse features (among 10 other massage options) a “Just the Two of Us” 50- and 80-minute treatment performed in their over-sized couples room.
Guests booking any of the resort’s spa packages receive complimentary access to the Health Club for a refreshing dip in their mineral pools, and use of fitness equipment. The Grand Traverse Resort & Spa experience facilitates guests moving toward a healthy balance of body, mind and spirit; restoring vitality, renewing one’s senses and reviving the inner being.
