So you think your buddies would laugh at you if you were to frequent a spa, right? You think the spa is just for women. You think the spa couldn’t possibly help out a tough guy like you.
Here are 5 reasons The Spa at Pinehurst is IDEAL for you, Tough Guy.
1. You Wouldn’t Use Your Driver to Putt
Which in the Spa world equates to: You shouldn’t use shampoo to wash your face. Believe it or not, there is a difference between the skin on your face and your hair, and while there is a certain debonair appeal to a craggy, weathered face, suffice it to say that if you want to make it past 50 without looking like a wallet, you will need some kind of skincare routine that does not involve a bar of Dial soap. Treat yourself to a razor-burn relieving facial and get a list of what to take home from our skin-care experts.
2. Hobbit Feet Only Look Good on Hobbits
You may not notice your jagged fingernails or the crampon-like calluses on your feet, but you’re kidding yourself if you think no one else does. The women in your life most certainly notice. Do your gal a favor.
- Recommended: Grooming for Hands or Feet $30 to $40, 25 minutes each
- Or, Sonic Pedicure $95, 80 minutes
3. Honey, Can You Rub My Neck?
Really? Unless your life partner is a licensed massage therapist, there is no way in heck she is going to be able to work out the petrified forest of knots and unyielding, rock-like muscles in your neck and upper back without a sledgehammer. On the other hand, we here at The Spa have been working out the kinks in world-class athletes for over a decade. Your commuter-induced, road-rage fueled tension is no match for us. Trust this one to the professionals.
4. If It’s Good Enough for John Wayne…
This may be a step to the left out of your comfort zone, but now that you’re a seasoned spa-goer, it’s time to pony up and be bold. Try our herbal body scrub – a rub-down using an earthy blend of sandalwood and juniper and take a break from…well, pretty much everything. Also included are hot towel compresses for hands and feet and a full massage.
5. Just Like Caesar
Not convinced yet? Keep in mind, The Spa is also the home to the only steam room and cedar sauna at the resort. Access to these amenities is included with all spa services or you can gain a la carte entrance with the purchase of a day pass.
- Recommended: Spa Day Pass $35
So, after getting beaten up by No. 2 – it’s OK, you’re not the only one – allow us to help you relax, refresh and rejuvenate. After all, No. 4, or No. 8, or No. 7, are waiting.
So are we.
