Named a Top Salon by Milwaukee Magazine in 2006, Bella Lei gives clients an upscale spa experience in an intimate setting. Take advantage of these environs and spend 60 minutes the Swedish way ($70 value), as trained massage therapists use firm pressure and complicated kneading techniques to untie knots and burst stress bubbles. Twitching muscles frequently relax after these sessions and show a marked improvement in standardized testing scores. For clients looking for a fresher front, the Vivo Facial ($70 value) uses a marine mask to create an even tone, while a full hand, arm, face, and décolleté massage carries the glow up through your neck and down to your fingertips like a carrier pigeon on a Fantastic Voyage.
Warm facial towels, aromatherapy oils, and heat therapy are a few of the supplemental services the therapists at VidaTherapy Massage Center use to relax clients. They stir these add-ons into an array of Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages to further pamper clients. After a massage, clients' blood circulates better, sleep comes easier, their headaches can vanish, and the digital self-destruct timer on their back stops counting down.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
With backgrounds in healing disciplines including human nutrition and Chinese medicine, the wellness practitioners at Anew Total Body Center care for clients both inside and out. Their treatment specialties include directed weight loss programs, body-shaping treatments, and massage. Beyond traditional deep-tissue and relaxation massages, they also offer fire cupping, gua sha, and Thai massage. In addition to their holistic treatments, they also provide lifestyle coaching; financial self-improvement seminars from Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University aim to add pounds to pocketbooks and piggy banks.
Asian-inspired folding fans and hand-painted cherry blossoms adorn the walls of Options Salon & Spa, a destination for hair, body, and skin services available six days a week. To create silky smooth locks, the resident stylists reach for KeraCare and Paul Mitchell products as well as natural-looking extensions, which are intricately sewn, fused, or braided into the hair. During exfoliating body scrubs, aestheticians massage epidermises with a sea-salt or sugar mixture, which is blended with aromatic scents such as rose or cranberry pomegranate. The crew also caters to male clientele with personalized spa packages that include a men’s facial, an all-natural mani-pedi, a deep-tissue massage, and an optional celebratory chest bump.
The Clearing : Center for Well Being upholds its commitment to balancing body and spirit through an array of healing disciplines. Guided by the principles of traditional medicine, the center's director and her staff perform a wide range of services that includes nutritional counseling, stress management, and disease prevention. Most treatments at the center are formulated in the advanced energy-medicine tradition, which credits disruptions in the body's natural vibrational energy as the trigger behind most ailments and Beach Boys songs.
