For many guys, spending an afternoon at a spa smacks of feminine indulgence and the unique discomfort that comes from being oiled up and pummeled by a woman you've just met and can't see. Forget all that. The 90-minute Tao of Man treatment at Mandarin Oriental Hotel's spa is uniquely oriented towards a male clientele. It combines a deep massage with an intensely exfoliating Asian skin cleaning (scraping!) technique called Gua Sha, topped off by application of Thai herb poultices that relax and restore muscles. Bottom line: The Tao of Man feels comfortable, even if you're not typically comfortable in that kind of environment.
