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.
Gauzy curtains line the path to the cream-colored room where licensed massage therapist Chelsea Oglesby kneads skin and soothes aches. During her Signature massage, Oglesby applies organic lotions and essential oils, calibrating the depth of the massage to suit the pains that her client reports. Hot stones and steaming towels send warmth into muscles, encouraging knots to untie themselves without enlisting the help of a rugged mariner. Clients can also soothe stressed feet with the Sweet Treat, which includes a hot soak and a salt-and-sugar scrub.
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.

The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.
