The Dads in Your Life Deserve Care
Secondly, because the special men in your life deserve some self-care time. So help Dad (or grandpa, uncle, godfather, etc.) invest in relaxation by booking him a massage this Father’s Day.
Thirdly, it’s a guaranteed gifting win he’ll rave about for years to come.
And don’t worry, we’ve made it easy for you. Listed below are four massage modalities to consider booking for Dad, along with a brief description.
4 Types of Massage Dad Will Love
- Deep Tissue Massage
Slow, short strokes combine with firm pressure (the therapist will use everything from her thumbs to her elbows) to release tension and break up knots in the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. (Note: Dad may feel sore the following day; if relaxation is strictly what you’re seeking for him, or if this is his first massage, deep-tissue is likely not the treatment for him.)
- Thai Massage
Think stretching with this full-body massage. Wearing loose-fitting clothing, Dad will undergo a series of yoga-like stretches and deep pressure point massage to stimulate the sen, or body’s energy pathways, and to free blocked chi, or energy.
- Sports Massage
Ideal for the Dad who’s into athletics. Like its name suggests, a sports massage is often performed before or after an athletic event in efforts to boost performance and/or help prevent injuries.
- Couples Massage: Yes, it’s Father’s Day, but heck, Mom deserves a massage, too! Schedule a couple’s massage (aka, a side-by-side treatment together). It’ll not only ease Dad into the spa-going experience, but mom and dad can revel in some quality time, just the two of them.

Or if skincare is more Dad’s preference than massage, a men’s facial is another option! Get started by ordering a Spafinder Gift Card here. When it arrives, sit (or Zoom) with dad while he books his spa treatment and you introduce him to the wonderful, relaxing world of massage.
