just curious. i was given a GC as a present and the menu looks rather.. extravagant. i've been only a few times and while highly enjoyable, i'm completely lost beyond the mani/pedi/facial/massage. a vichy rain shower? hydrotherapy? ayurvedic indian scalp massage? body wraps? body exfoliation? wow.<br><br>
what do you like?<br><br>
eta: men, if you go, feel free to chime in as well! <img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif">

I'm a big fan of hot stone massages (either full massage or as a pedicure), and facials (add on a vitamin C mask if available).<br><br>
Enjoy!!!

I have never been to the spa so I think go nuts! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
However this thread is making me want to cut my hair again.

Another vote for hot stone massage.<br><br>
And if they have a pedicure that involves foot massage... that's pretty darn awesome.

Manicures, pedicures, and waxing regularly, and the occasional facial and massage. I have never done any of the fancy stuff. Although the facials I get are Ayurvedic facials, and as far as I can tell, that just means they use a special kind of essential oil with you and do maybe a bit more facial massage-y type stuff. It's perhaps a bit more soothing than a regular facial.<br><br>
There's something about the place I go for most spa stuff. . .this is going to sound kind of weird. . .but they way they touch with massage is just very loving. Not inappropriate or creepy. It feels different to me than other places.

I LOVE a good massage. I'd probably skip the fancier stuff and use the GC for more than one massage...

I can't do massage unless it's DT.<br><br>
My spa is great....<br>
that's my foo foo hair lady!<br>
If you get there at the right time of day.....say, when they're OPEN....they'll give you wine while they cut your hair.<br><br>
Facials are a new indulgence of mine.......every once in awhile.<br>
Manis are a waste of time on my hands...<br>
Pedis last a little longer, but I always forget to take flip flops so I don't get them all the time.

I'm pretty sure CoachT's mancard has been revoked for YEARS. Let him tell you about his skin care regime. <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif">

I'm a fan of the "happy ending"..........it's mancard friendly too.

Unfortunately I know what you mean. I tell people that I wear the pants in my family............... my wife picks them out for me, but at least I get to wear them.

<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> Mr. DC has the same problem. (but he's also very, very colorblind, so if I didn't pick out his clothes, he'd look really, really, really bad.)
