14 June 2022
Spa days are great. You can relax, get pampered, enjoy a catch-up with friends and let your daily worries and stresses melt away. And, of course, when it comes to spa days and indulging treatments, we aren’t just talking about spoiling the lovely ladies in our lives. Spa days, relaxation and self-care isn’t limited to any gender, and everyone can reap the rewards of taking some time to themselves
With Father’s Day on the horizon (and approaching fast), there’s no better time to learn about the benefits of a relaxing spa day and why you should treat your dad, stepdad, uncle, brother, father figure or yourself to a much needed pampering spa break.
Not sure where to start when it comes to spa days for men? Ye Olde Bell is here to provide inspiration and direction to achieve the perfect spa day this Father’s Day.
Why is it important to indulge in the perfect spa day this Father’s Day (and beyond)?
We can all think of a moment in our lives when a little time out would have done us a world of good. And whether stress has played a major part in our lives or not, a little pampering with a spa day never goes amiss.
Spa days give us the space, ability, and permission to relax, something that can be difficult in our day-to-day lives.
As well as the numerous mental wellbeing benefits of spa days for men, experiencing a spa day or treatment can improve blood circulation, reduce muscle pain and tension, improve sleep quality, and encourage the release of happy hormones such as serotonin and dopamine. Sounds rather good, right?
What does the perfect spa day for men look like?
Regardless of gender, there’s no right way to indulge in a spa day. As long as you’re feeling relaxed, de-stressed and comfortable, then you’re pretty spot on. If you’re not used to taking time for yourself, self-care can seem strange at first. However, with the help of our specially designed luxury spa, you’ll soon feel the stress of the everyday simply melt away.
Whether you indulge in a spa day as a couple, with friends, family or on your own, here are our top 3 spa facilities for the perfect spa day for men.
To get the most from your spa day, we recommend experiencing the Herbal Laconium before any other facilities as it helps clear the mind, warm your body and relax your muscles.
Alpine Sauna: The hottest of our experiences, our traditional sauna has been constructed of Swiss Stone Pine. This wood has a distinct pine essence, which positively affects wellbeing as it aids relaxation and sleep. The heat aids circulation, improves joint movement, flushes out toxins and opens pores to improve skin condition.
Vitality Pool: Our Indoor/Outdoor Vitality Pool is 10 metres long and 1.2 metres deep. Truly relaxing and packed with luxury features; indoor and outdoor air recliners, a mini air tub, a reflexology station, water massage jets and a water curtain.
Snow Storm Walk: Unlock your inner Wim Hof with our snow storm experience. Press the snowfall button for the snow shower walk or be brave and select snowstorm! Cold experiences help boost the immune system and eliminate toxins, improving the appearance of cellulite and speeding up muscle recovery.
So what are the best treatments when it comes to a spa day for men?
Anyone can enjoy any spa treatment, regardless of gender. There are, however, certain treatments we recommend to men because of their kindness to frequently shaved skin, ability to soothe strained muscles and leaves you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.
Below are our top three spa treatments for men to enjoy during their spa day this Father’s Day:
C-energy facial: A facial to heal and re-energise specifically for men. Infused with a blend of plant extracts and vitamins, this facial is not only relaxing but also rejuvenates the skin, which is often irritated by the daily ritual of shaving.
Ye perfect gent: This perfect 90-minute treatment allows you to relax, unwind and recharge your batteries. Your treatment package includes a back exfoliation, a deeply relaxing back massage and our C+ energy facial.
Men’s tranquil face and body treatment: A face and body treatment to relax and re-energise. This treatment is designed to meet the needs of men’s skin which is often irritated by shaving. After a 60 minute deeply invigorating massage using cinnamon balm to warm and soothe muscle strain, you will then experience our C+ energising facial.
The longer the better
In our busy day-to-day lives, sometimes sitting down with a warm cup of tea for fifteen minutes can feel like a luxury. Then as the weekend passes at lightning speed, we end up juggling between house jobs that have built up during the week and finding a spare minute to recharge our batteries.
With a spa day for men, every distraction is removed, allowing you to fully relax without any need to feel guilty (you should never feel guilty about taking time to relax, at home or otherwise).
And sometimes, a spa day simply isn’t enough. A spa weekend can do wonders for our mental wellbeing and allows us to spring back into our daily lives with newfound motivation, positive thinking, and recharged all-round health. And when could be better to book a Ye Olde Bell spa break or weekend than for a Ye Olde Bells' Father's Day treat?
