LEXINGTON, Ky., June 3 /PRNewswire/ — If previous Father's Day gifts have included a "My Dad Is #1" T-shirt, then it's time to start thinking outside of the box. You've heard him complain about his old football injury and stiff back for too long, so now is the time to help him out with a gift that he can benefit from all year. Dads are stressed out and they deserve a little R & R at the spa. Think your dad is too tough for the spa? Think again because 1/3 of spa-goers are men.

"Men account for 31 percent of spa-goers and the No. 1 reason they go to the spa is to relieve and reduce stress," said International SPA Association President Lynne McNees. "Make a small investment in your dad's well-being by introducing him to the health benefits of a spa experience."
