Men Least Likely to Scream (as much) Getting Brazilian Wax at Dyanna Waxing Salon NYC

Male Brazilian waxing in Manhattan NYC

It’s long been held that women can tolerate pain better than men. (Even the TV show Myth Busters proved it to be true with several experiments.) So, when men and women come for a Brazilian Wax hair removal session at Dyanna Spa in New York, there is understandably more sound coming out the rooms where men are being treated.

In case you aren’t familiar with Brazilian Bikini Wax treatments for men, this hair removal procedure involves removing all of the hair surrounding the male genitalia. Hair on the butt and butt crack is part of the deal. The esthetician only removes as much hair as the man desires.

At Dyanna Spa in NY, our estheticians use one of two methods. One method involves applying warm wax to the appropriate areas, covering the wax with paper strips, and then quickly pulling off the strips. (That’s when one might hear a quick “YIKES!” coming from the treatment room.)

The other method involves Cirepil Blue Hard Wax. It is a method involving the application of wax to appropriate hairy places. When hardened, our esthetician simply peels off the wax. This treatment is for those with particularly sensitive skin. Sounds can, however, still be heard emanating from the treatment room ever so often.

To give men a fair shake, a Brazilian wax treatment is innately more painful for men than for women because the skin in a man’s genital area is looser and more sensitive. Removing the strips or peeling off the wax stretches a man’s skin more, and the pain is therefore greater.

Here’s the good news! The more times you get a Brazilian wax, the easier and less painful it is. After each hair removal treatment, the hairs grow back thinner and softer so its removal is faster and easier.

Last year we had the enjoyable company of Carlo Montagnino from the irreverent and funny website “Dog and Pony Show” whose readership voted that he should experience a Brazilian Wax treatment. He chose our Manhattan Dyanna Spa and Nail Salon for his waxing procedure.

The YouTube posting of his Brazilian bikini wax experience shows how impressed he was with our incredibly professional and discreet staff. He also didn’t scream a lot. In fact, he said it was much less painful than he imaged it would be. (The posting was so popular, that several well-known media people imitated the feat.)

Is it worth the pain? The answer for many is an absolute, “yes”. Gay and straight men alike prefer the clean look and feeling this waxing procedure provides, as do many of their spouses and significant others.

If you want to have the ultimate in Brazilian Wax treatments, our New York City spa is here to make your experience as painless and pleasant as possible.

To make an appointment, or to ask any questions, give us a call at (212) 995-2355.

Note: To ensure your health and safety, we strictly adhere to a “no double dipping” policy.  We never dip the wax application spatula into the wax more than once. Our NYC beauty salon and day spa always operates with your health and safety in mind.

Techniques used in the Swedish Massage release toxins from muscles in order to increase regular blood flow circulation and further sooth aching muscles.
  • Reflexology ($20-45): The Reflexology Massage offers relief to aching hands and feet through the effective use of targeting pressure or “reflex,” points in your hands and feet. These specific reflex points relate to certain organs and glands of the body and the simulation of those reflex points promotes health throughout the body via energetic pathways. This massage is extremely effective at relieving tension, aches and pains through techniques such as holds, finger pressure, kneading and rubbing.

Relax the Cold Away: Reflexology Made Easy With NYC’s Top Spa’s April Special!

A recent therapy gaining popularity in New York’s relaxation-and-mediation-oriented society, is that of Reflexology Massage Treatment, though the scientific and medicinal benefits of Reflexology began developing as early as 5,000 years ago.  At Manhattan’s Dyanna Spa, we recognize that the healing powers of reflexology are unique as a means of alleviating tension.  In an effort to ensure that all of our customers get the chance to benefit from Reflexology, even if they don’t have the time or necessarily the money to spend on extensive massage treatments, we have incorporated ten minutes of the treatment into our Black Currant Mani+Pedi April Special.  For just $50, you can receive both a spa manicure and pedicure, and ten minutes of the ultimate Reflexology healing treatment.

Reflexology Massage is based on the idea that a map of the entire body is located in one’s foot.  That is to say, that each muscle, sinew and organ contained in the body corresponds to an area on the sole of the foot.  Reflexologists can spend years studying this map, in order to know how to heal a person using the correct pressure points found on their feet.  When one comes to a reflexologist with a backache, stomach problems, a caught muscle or any other discomfort, the specialist can heal the pain by concentrating on the corresponding regions of the feet linked to the ailing body-part.  A true Master Reflexologist will be able to determine the situation of one’s physical weaknesses without being told, but rather through simply touching one’s feet and feeling for inconsistencies between the pained person’s feet, and the feet of a perfectly healthy person.

Reflexology is a non-invasive, enjoyable and essential means of controlling the effects of a stressful lifestyle on one’s overall health.  Worries that naturally plague a person due to work over-load, lack of sleep, familial and social strains, etc., can be easily alleviated by relying on a trained reflexologist’s gentle application of pressure to tension-laden body-parts via one’s foot.  And to top it all off, some doctors believe that Reflexology has the ability to reverse the aging process! Sounds like the perfect addition to your regular spa treatments, to say the least! Come on in today and give it a try. 🙂

De-Stress for Spring at New York’s Dyanna Spa with a Therapeutic Reiki Massage to Melt Winter Woes!

At Dyanna Spa, we do our work to ensure our busy and stressed Manhattan & New York City  clients  receive healing and optimum well being every time they walk through the doors of our Gramercy Park salon.  Whether you are visiting us for the first time, or have been a devoted customer for years, we want to know who you are, and how we can best temper our services to fit your needs.  Before you come in for a treatment, we would like you to please share with us any aches or pains you may be experiencing, because all of our trained professionals in massage therapy, facial treatments and skin-care want to find a way to ease your discomfort. With the newest addition of the Reiki Massage to our menu of massage therapy treatments, your deepest stresses from this past miserable winter can be cured with just a few sessions!

Specifically for those of you who have previously previously had or are currently experiencing feelings of anxiety or depression, we would like to introduce you to our Reiki Massage Treatment Special ($85 for 1 hour).  This therapy was specifically designed to relieve tension and feelings of sadness trapped deep within a person, by collecting the healing energies embedded in the universe and focusing them on irritated areas of the body.  Our qualified therapists have learned the art of concentrating heat on your back and neck, resulting in an incredible sensation of release of the tension in your muscles.

Our bodies are made up of many Chakras – this is originally a Hindu concept, which explains that there are spirals of fluid that flow within the human and maintain the balance of hormones, nutrients and energies within our system.  They are highly sensitive to receiving messages from the world around us, and internalizing them.  These spirals need to move in tandem in order for us to feel whole and content.  If one of these Chakras become blocked, or receive negative messages and vibes for any reason, whether due to stress, lack of sleep, bad diet, or a number of other possible factors, our entire system is disrupted.  Therefore, we could have some sort of internal or emotional injury in one part of our body that materializes as a pain in another part of our body entirely.

Reiki massage was created as a means to restore any imbalance in our Chakras.  This means that after a series of successful Reiki sessions, you should feel a very tangible difference in your overall health.

We warmly welcome you to come visit our spa whenever you feel that you need a little something extra to boost your mood.  Our hope is that you always leave Dyanna Spa completely satisfied, and feeling like you have a reason to smile at the world around you.

To schedule a consultation or appointment, simply call us at (212) 995-2355 or book online at DyannaSpa.com!

Natural Products Ensure Natural Beauty at New York’s Dyanna Spa

As a top New York spa, we know how important it is to keep up our reputation and continue to bring the best products and services for nail care, waxing, facials and massages to all of our clients. That’s why when we found out studies have shown that beauty products such as body oils, body waxes, face-wipes and the like frequently use chemicals and synthetic materials to add a pleasant fragrance to their products, we realized that’s something we won’t stand for at Dyanna.

More often than not, the exact chemical ingredients included in these non-natural beauty products are not listed in detail on the product casing.  Users thereby remain unaware of the harmful side-effects which these products could potentially have on their skin. The pores that make up every inch of our body need to have constant contact with clean air in order to breathe properly and thereby retain their natural glow.  However, the toxic materials added to supply odor to many non-organic substances can actually block our pores and obstruct that clean supply of air from entering our skin.

At Dyanna Spa, we recognize that natural products are of utmost importance when dealing with skin-care.  Our entire selection of creams, moisturizers, oils and the like are carefully chosen to ensure that any treatment which your body receives at Dyanna Spa will leave you feeling rejuvenated and cleansed in every way.  From face-masks to foot creams, your skin will encounter only top-of-the-line all-natural ingredients, including herb extracts, vitamins from plants and minerals and fragrances emanating from fruit peels – allowing you to experience maximum health benefits after each spa visit!

Do you ever wonder how flower and plant extracts are converted into essential oils safe to use on skin?  The process is a long and carefully crafted one in which the exact location in a plant which contains the most highly concentrated mineral content will be extracted and distilled, using advanced steam or water distillation techniques.  The raw healthy materials that remain are then inserted into the lotion or cleanser that you apply onto your skin – thus allowing you to nurture your skin with the same healthy ingredients you aim to give your body!
