Why Spa Days Are Not Just For Women

Why Spa Days Are Not Just For Women

Having a spa day and treating yourself to a hammam spa experience is a luxury anyone can enjoy; yet there seems to be a misconception that going to a spa is a ladies-only activity, and that’s simply not true. 

It’s funny how we are quick to assume that anything related to beauty and pampering is exclusive to women. Men and women have been enjoying spas since the days of the Roman Empire. For example, the Turks adopted bathing culture from the Romans and it evolved into the hammam spa culture we now identify with when we think of unique, one-of-a-kind spa experiences. Luckily, we don’t need to time-travel back to the 7th century to enjoy an authentic hammam spa day!    

Spas with unisex communal elements like bathing pools, saunas, and steam rooms (like Turkish hammam) are also ideal for special occasions to bond and have a deeper emotional connection with a loved one. Read on to see the many occasions that both men and women can enjoy at a hammam spa to celebrate life’s memorable moments. 

Men Like Being Pampered Too! 

Men enjoy being pampered as much as women do! The great thing about the spa experience, especially a hammam spa day, is the hammam environment facilitates relaxation and self-reflection in the steam room, it promotes skin health with full body exfoliation or body mask treatments, and who can resist a full body massage after unwinding in a steam bath and being scrubbed from head to toe — this describes the most perfectly relaxing and pampering spa day experience!  

How Spa Days Can Benefit All Genders!  

A spa day offers a multitude of beauty, grooming, and health benefits. There are a variety of spa treatments available these days that focus on everything from detoxing, skin smoothing and deep cleansing to easing muscle aches and pains, and stress reduction. Many people seek out spa treatments to improve physical health, for instance a full body massage can help with sore muscles, a sauna experience can improve heart health, and exfoliating treatments help improve blood circulation and skin health. Spa treatments are also excellent at addressing cognitive and psychological health issues like stress, depression, brain fog, and anxiety. Overall, having regular spa days will flex your immune system and stimulate the release of your body’s happy feel-good chemicals (i.e., serotonin, oxytocin, dopamine and endorphins).      

Moroccan and Turkish hammam treatments are a natural, holistic way to hack your body into releasing mood enhancing happy hormones to alleviate stress and anxiety. Find out how a hammam spa day can boost your mood here!
