Did you know that 47% of spa goers are men? According to the International Spa Association President, Lynne McNees “The number one reason both men and women visit a spa worldwide is to learn how to manage their stress. Men and women may deal with stress in different ways, but surprisingly, they both find spas as an outlet.”
Father’s day is a perfect opportunity to share the benefits of stress reduction and pain relief with the men in your life. The following our are top suggestions for gifts for dads (or grandpas!)
Products for Pain Relief:
Tiger Balm patches and salves are great for guys who complain of soreness. Our massage therapists incorporate tiger balm into many sports massages as well. The patches are great self-care and really popular with men.
