While thought to primarily be a woman’s domain, spas are increasingly catering packages to suit the needs of men. More than ever before, spas are pampering their male guests by offering a variety of massage treatments, facials, and, yes, even pedicures.
Here is a list of treatments in Calgary spas that are geared especially for men.
