Dads don't treat themselves enough, so spas have made it easy to give dad some tender, loving care on Father's Day. International SPA Association (ISPA) members around the world are offering men's only packages that are perfect for the man's retreat.
"The International SPA Association Spa Consumer Snapshot Initiative Volume Three shows that more men than ever are visiting spas, 47 percent of all spa-goers are male," said ISPA President Lynne McNees. "This is exciting news, as the number one reason people go to the spa worldwide is to learn how to manage their stress, stress is not a gender specific issue. Along with spas catering more to men, they are becoming more comfortable with the idea of going to a spa. Men are finally catching on to what women have known all along."
