Move over, girls…guys want the seat next to you at the spa.
Veda Salon at Hotel Monaco in downtown Denver: Your oasis to becoming a “better man.” Reward yourself!
My guess is: men will visit a spa on a trip before they will at home due to a masculinity hurdle. When we do go to the spa, we opt for a massage. On the other hand, men are afraid to get a facial.
There is nothing more relaxing and rejuvenating for the skin than a steam treatment followed by a botanical scrub. Right up there on the relaxation scale of a massage. If the facial is not right for you, then opt for a manicure, and ideally, a pedicure. C’mon on, guys, we all need to get our nails trimmed and cuticles neatened up for ourselves and those around us—even for work. Think about how many times per day we present something to another. Our hands are noticed. When you get a manicure your hands are massaged, then wrapped in soft, warm paraffin and heated towels. A slice of nirvana. As a final touch, they buff the nail to a soft matte luster—and you’re done.
My personal recommendation is a pedicure: a warm foot bath in a copper bowl of warm/soapy water to start the process, the cleaning up of the nails and cuticles and general foot care, and a nice paraffin wrap, finished off with an out-of-this-world foot massage.
It’s amazing just how much tension and stress your feet carry. Whether it’s a lunch break for a 50-minute spa treatment or haircut, remember Veda at the Hotel Monaco. Once you experience this oasis of tranquility in your day, you will return over and over again.
If you’re not quite prepared to do the “spa experience” solo…take your partner! Enjoy some one-on-one time with them. Make this a date night outing. Hint: Veda will do a couple’s tandem massage.
