East Town Spa?s aesthetic teams regularly trek around the country to hone their beautifying expertise and study with experienced Bumble and Bumble and Aveda educators. They then tote their refreshed skills back to Milwaukee, where they set to work inside a historic mansion painted in classic rose tones. The team's hair services range from simple trims for beards and mustaches all the way to smoothing treatments for 4-D strand textures. Facials improve complexions with Aveda techniques, and natural baking-soda crystals provide gentle microdermabrasion. A tangerine-tinged pedicure lounge features a cushioned chaise and footbaths, and waxing sessions leave skin surfaces smooth from head to toe.
The pampering starts as soon as you walk Studio D Day Spa's doors. Right away, guests have the opportunity to slip into a complimentary robe and slippers as they simultaneously shed their stress and tension, preparing themselves for a personalized treatment. With more than 20 years experience as a massage therapist and 14 as a licensed aesthetician, owner Dee Glenn intuitively caters to her clients' needs and turns every appointment into an indulgent escape from the everyday stress of thinking about work or trying to remember your birthday.
In addition to revitalizing appearances, Dee's treatments promote a sense of calm and balance in people's lives. Personalized facials help restore the skin's youthful radiance, indulgent nail treatments can incorporate heated lotions or steamed towels, and an exfoliating brown sugar scrub nourishes dry skin with a combination of omega oils and botanical extracts. Dee takes a similar approach when performing massages. She uses specialized Swedish, deep tissue, or acupressure techniques to alleviate aches, adding heated lava stones or aromatherapy oils to accentuate the treatments' therapeutic benefits.
A cold-press system is the key to Juiced! Mobile Juice Bar's vitality-boosting concoctions. Owner Jason Lannoch swears by the technique because it allows him to preserve fresh fruits' and vegetables' nutrients rather than breaking them down with a high-powered centrifugal juicer. Try signature blends such as the Hangover Destroyer with apples and organic beets, carrots, and lemons, or the Lean & Clean, which combines kale with cucumbers, apples, ginger, and limes. Customers can pick up individual bottles at Lannoch's North Farwell Avenue shop or opt for multi-juice power cleanses.
Throughout the treatment areas at Spa Refresh, the gentle bubbling of water features lulls guests into relaxation as candlelight flickers upon the walls. It's a fitting setting for the pampering services that take place inside. Massages in particular feel like journeys, as they begin with a consultation to identify especially achy areas, continue with Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone techniques, and conclude with complimentary showers. In private spa rooms, aestheticians perform five facials designed for sensitive, oily, and other skin types. Elsewhere, no-chip manicures and pedicures shield digits so clients don't have to wear concrete mittens.
The aestheticians at Skin 2 Envy Studio follow the three Rs of beauty: Refresh, Rejuvenate, and Revive. Those words inform all of their services, which range from pampering care to advanced med-spa treatments. Classic facials purge dirt, oil, and confetti from pores, while microdermabrasion treatments and peels exfoliate away dull skin with diamond-tipped tools or chemical solutions. More dramatic resurfacing can be provided with the Fraxel pen, a device that employs laser light to promote the growth of new, fresh cells.
As a personal trainer certified by the American Council on Exercise and a licensed massage therapist, Chris Aiello, Jr., has a thorough knowledge of the human body. He created Workout Boss as a facility where clients can tap into his expertise to address issues related to health, posture, and injury all in one place. He chats with patrons during personal-training sessions, encouraging them while blending cardio and a range of exercises in a gym with free weights, cable machines, kettlebells, and punching bags. On massage tables, therapists employ specialized techniques such as myofascial release and lymphatic drainage, which aim to straighten postural irregularities and detoxify muscles, and utilize deep-tissue massage to ease pain from sports or other injuries. The trainer also draws on a stock of recipes and nutritional advice to help clients augment workout plans and shed inches.
