2/10/2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Celebrate Valentine's Day with the gift of spa for the men in your life. A customized spa treatment, a weekend getaway or the gift of relaxation close to home is a great way to mark the occasion. It's easy to find a spa deal that caters to men, according to the ISPA 2011 U.S. Industry Study which reported that 45% of spas offer packages aimed at men. Resort/hotel spas are most active on that front, with 65% offering special packages geared toward men.

The number one reason men go to the spa worldwide is to reduce/relieve stress.

"Men are frequently introduced to the benefits of spas by their wives, girlfriends or moms, and once they have that first spa experience - they are hooked," said International SPA Association President Lynne McNees. "Giving your Valentine the gift of spa is a thoughtful way to convey the importance of making spa visits part of an overall health and wellness routine."

Spas take the guesswork out of picking the right package for your Valentine with a wide variety of options that provide a needed time-out for the men in your life.
