Still (too) few are these gentlemen who dare to allow themselves moments of well-being. And yet we know that they would not sulk their pleasure, if they were offered an afternoon at the spa, a relaxing massage, a facial treatment or even a hair treatment. The approaching Christmas holidays therefore sound like a perfect opportunity to treat the men in our lives to a gift placed under the sign of absolute relaxation, like an invitation to do good, to take care of oneself and to enjoy a well-deserved relaxing break.
Looking for a concept or an address, where you will be sure to live a more than pleasant experience? We tested five of them, which we can only warmly recommend.
5 wellness experiences to give a man for Christmas
Spa Terraké – Hotel Bowmann *****
For the most luxurious of well-being parentheses, head to the Bowmann Hotel, a five-star hotel located on Boulevard Haussmann which is home to the spa of the French cosmetics house Terraké, the first to have opened in Paris. We live a tailor-made sensory experience that gives pride of place to expert know-how and state-of-the-art treatments, all in a cozy and chic setting conducive to relaxation. Our favorite ? The Terra Magica muscle relaxant ritual, which acts on tensions and knots. For an hour, we abandon ourselves to the expert hands of the house practitioners, alone or in pairs, and we come out with our body as light as our mind, ready to take part in the tumult of the city, our nervous contractions in less.

At 34 rue des Tournelles, not far from the Place des Vosges, Spatiu has taken up residence in a former literary salon. “Suspended bubble”, in the heart of the city, this well-being space presents itself as the temple of letting go. Tudor, the host of places with an almost angelic gentleness, welcomes you there for private yoga sessions, or for 4 signature treatments, including a Japanese shiatsu massage focused on balance, a Californian massage that connects the body and the mind, a kobido facial massage and a mouth massage that works on the most hidden muscles, in order to reshape the face. On our side, it is for the first that we opted. Under the stone vault of the massage room with its refined and minimalist decoration, while our tensions dissipated as Tudor manipulated him and his hands charged with energy, we really had the feeling of living a moment out of time.

Ideal for people who are short on time or who simply do not want to travel, the Urban Massage application offers to bring the massage to you. All you have to do: book the treatment of your choice on the app and enjoy a moment of absolute relaxation. Depending on where you live, you can choose from dozens of experienced practitioners (masseurs or osteopaths), who travel from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. with their own equipment to transform your living room into a lair of zen. Thai, Swedish, Californian or even deep tissue massage, there is something for all desires and all needs. We loved the soothing CBD massage which was able to relieve our aches as much as the perfect lymphatic drainage to eliminate accumulated toxins.

Beer Spa Paris
Fans of experiences as new as they are unusual? So maybe you’ll be tempted to make an appointment at the very first beer spa in the capital, which has just opened its doors a stone’s throw from the Bon Marché. This concept, straight from Eastern Europe, invites you to take a seat in an oak whirlpool bath containing a mixture of hops, malt and brewer’s yeast, three ingredients with relaxing, antioxidant and energizing properties. All while tasting beers with or without alcohol, thanks to dispensers made available. The advantage is that you can enjoy it with several people, as a couple or with friends, thanks to the three double bathtubs of this resolutely unique place.
