Spa Hopping: Ideas for Men-Focused Spa PackagesMany of the clients who are patronizing your salon and spa today have shopping for Father's Day at the top of their To Do list. Boost your sales while making things easier for your top clients by spotlighting the men's services you have on your menu and developing a special package of great treatments perfect for Father's Day.

And, if you're concerned that the men in your town aren't big spa-goers, think again. According to the International SPA Association's Spa Consumer Snapshot Initiative Volume Three, 47 percent of today's spa-goers are male. "This is exciting news," says ISPA President Lynne McNees. "The number one reason people go to the spa worldwide is to learn how to manage stress. Along with spas catering to more men these days, men are becoming more comfortable with the idea of going to a spa. men are finally catching on to what women have know all along."
