What to Do For Dad?

What to Do For Dad? - Blog - Bellís Therapeutic Spa - Fathers_day_blog_photo

Father’s Day is right around the corner! And much like many of our national holidays, a lot of us are stumped on what to do. Father’s Day is a wonderful day of recognizing all of the strong men in our lives. There is truly nothing like a good father. They protect us, raise us up from low times, make us laugh with their silly dad jokes, and provide for us. That’s a lot of hard work! So, this Father’s Day, as you stroll through the Men’s section of Macy’s looking for a strong and reliable tie to suit your strong and reliable dad, try thinking a little out of the box!


Massage Therapy is a growing phenomenon all over America! Its popularity is growing everyday, but still it is predominately associated with woman’s health. When you think “Spa Day” you think “Female.” Don’t lie! You know you do! Today, we’re here to squash that notion and open it up to the people who can actually benefit from it: Everyone!


Athletes all over the world rely on massage therapy as a vital part of staying in top physical shape in and out of game season. But truly, the list of massage beneficiaries goes far beyond athletes. A survey in 2012 put out by The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) shows that 12.1% of men over the age of 18 suffer from health problems. That’s a lot of our men! In 2012, Men’s Health also published a list of issues everyday men face that can be tackled with massage. The list includes:


  • Neck pain
  • Athletic performance
  • Depression
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Lower-Back pain
  • Constipation

The practice of Massage Therapy has a large variety of types and styles of body massage. One of the most common forms is the Swedish technique, which uses long strokes and kneading into the muscles to relax and release toxins. Who couldn’t benefit from that?


Still not sure what to do for dad? You’re in luck! We’ve made it easy for you with our Father’s Day Special which includes a Deep Tissue Massage and a Hot Stone Foot Massage for only $89.99 or you can make it his choice with a gift card!


Here, at Bellis Therapeutic Spa, we specialize in over ten different massage modalities! Each one consists of its own attributes in order to target and aid in many different health issues. We also offer a Gentleman’s Facial designed specially to assist men’s sensitive skin. Give us a call today to set up the perfect Father’s Day gift for the special guy in your life and enjoy your day of celebrating him!
