Society likes to put restrictions on men. He can’t wear a skirt. He can’t cry. He can’t indulge in a spot of grooming for his face. Here at AUGUSTMAN though, we’ve always believed that the modern man is defined not by his choice of clothing nor the activities he likes to do but by the values he believes in.

That’s why we’ve always advocated that a man should always strive to better himself. And one of the ways he can do that is to take time out for himself so that he’s better prepared to tackle life.

When it comes to treating ourselves, we’re big fans of the Hero treatment at Damai Spa at Grand Hyatt Singapore.

The treatment is the perfect remedy for today’s common maladies – aching back and shoulders, and the build-up of grime on your face.

Before the treatment starts, the therapist will sit down with you for a short consultation to discover what the problem areas on your body are. Rather common stuff but one of the key differentiators between Damai Spa and its competitors is that the private treatment room comes with its own en-suite bathroom and changing area. A bit like home, except this home has a therapist waiting for you to shower and get ready before she kneads your tired muscles.

The actual Hero treatment is exactly that, a thorough back exfoliation followed by a powerful deep tissue back massage accompanied by hot stones that’ll make you feel like a hero. It’s a rejuvenating experience.

The therapist I had was also incredibly meticulous. She realised that I had tighter latissimus dorsi muscles on my left side due to my scoliosis and paid extra attention to it without me having to point it out.

After the massage, I was treated to a facial that cleared the environmental grime off my face – cleansing, steaming to open the pores, slight extraction to remove the more obvious black and white heads, followed by a mask. During the mask, you’ll also be treated to a scalp massage.

I left the treatment room feeling like the burdens of the world had been lifted off my back, even if only for a few days. A hero’s pampering once a month? I think every man could do with one of those.
