With Men’s Health Week taking place next month between 12th – 18th June, and Father’s Day landing on the final day of the week, I wanted to use this opportunity to share some of the exceptional benefits that spa-ing poses on the mind, body, and soul for men, as well as some of my favourite treatment suggestions.
I feel that it is important to give yourself a way to switch off from the outside world and I really believe that it’s a wellbeing necessity! Heading to the spa when you can is a great way for men to ground themselves, helps us all to build a world where looking after mental wellbeing is a priority, whoever we are.
Here at The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel, our team has seen a rise in people seeking more balance in their lives and taking better care of themselves. This absolutely includes men, meaning we are now, more than ever before, ensuring that our spa menu and overall offerings help to make men feel as though they belong. Of course, when men spa, they’ll often want something a bit different, so to be an inclusive industry, it’s all about understanding what it is that men actually want to experience for their wellbeing. This will usually involve a more physically effective and simple approach that doesn’t incorporate anything too experimental. For example, in my experience, men would usually prefer a simple facial over being cocooned in a strong-smelling mud wrap!
While most of our treatments are suitable for anyone, I’ve picked out my top suggestions below that would be perfect for any males in your life this Men’s Health Week:
- Age Rebel Facial (£101 for 60 minutes): As an effective, age-defying facial, this treatment delivers immediate results. Transforming tired looking skin, this facial includes a brush cleanse, steam, enzyme peel, massage and toning mask to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Back, Face & Scalp Treatment with or without hot stones (from £132 for 90 minutes): A very popular choice among male visitors to our spa, this is a hero treatment. Delivering triple results targeted at three areas, this treatment features a back exfoliation and massage, a calming facial and a relaxing scalp massage
- MENS Personalise Facial, Shoulder, Neck and Scalp Massage (£97 for 60 minutes): Whether the skin needs a deep cleanse, healthy glow or ultra-hydration, we always recommend this personalised treatment for men. Combining a relaxing shoulder, neck, face and scalp massage with a double cleanse, exfoliation and steam, this treatment can be completely tailored to anyone’s skin needs
Until next time,
