Massage is the most booked spa treatment, and for good reason. In some places it accounts for around 70% of all treatments booked, and there’s a multitude of benefits of massage for hardworking and well deserving dads this Father’s Day.
This year, Father’s Day is being celebrated under peculiar circumstances. There are signs that the world is beginning to move again but things are far from normal. Meanwhile, the physical impact that mental stresses over work, health and those of loved ones can have often creep up on us. We may not be fully aware that our shoulders have become hunched or that our brows are furrowed and our jaws are clenched, but if we take a moment to check in with our bodies it’s amazing what they will tell us and how much better they can feel after a little TLC.
As we begin to see the possibility of returning to spas to enjoy their wealth of treatments and facilities, as well as the knowledge and expertise that they provide, a spa voucher to treat dads this Father’s Day to the self care they deserve (and probably won’t book for themselves) could be just the gift he really needs.
Whilst we are often familiar with some of the physical benefits of massage, such as relieving aches and pains, they extend way beyond simply soothing muscles, especially at times of heightened anxiety. It’s the one time when we truly disconnect from the world around us, creating space for mental and physical recovery.
Every spa will have their own processes, and every person is different. There are plenty of massages that are designed specifically for men, and they may use particular products that are more suited to men’s skin or perhaps they target areas that are typically problematic for men. For example, men are often prone to lower back pain, so a massage might focus on that area. That said, therapists will always talk to you before your spa treatment to see which areas you would like to focus on and tailor the massage treatment accordingly.
This 45 minute treatment is particularly good for anyone who has a city commute and as a result suffers from congested skin on the neck and back. The treatment acts like a facial for the back, helping to cleanse and replenish, leaving your skin radiant and glowing. It also includes a back massage for extra relaxation.
At Raithwaite Hall their treatments are carefully chosen, such as their Go Guy – Male Executive Men’s facial. This macho facial is perfect to revive, refresh and invigorate. Your skin will be revitalised with a deep brush cleanse, a choice of lifting or tranquil massage, compression massage and an exfoliating mask. Aching neck muscles will be massaged, worry lines smoothed and headaches soothed. Finally, a detoxifying foot massage.
Designed specifically for men, this massage targets the back and legs combining deep massage with warm Lava Shells to relax muscles and cold glacial shells to reduce inflammation.

This is a complete deep body and relaxing facial massage using a unique and effective technique with golf balls. The warmth of the massage will improve flexibility, circulation and muscle tone and provide absolute relaxation from head to toe.
