The beauty technicians at Millie's Salon & Spa tend to muscles and skin with environmentally friendly products, releasing visitors back into the world with a clearer mind and dermis. Hands help relieve tension during an hour-long Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique that uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-m?ch?. Technicians treat above-shoulder areas to hour-long Aveda Outer Peace facials, which administer a gentle scrubbing with products formulated to fight blemishes and imperfections on the face. After aiming to exfoliate away bumps, grime, and post-it notes, aestheticians perform extractions to purge pores of toxins and build-up. The treatment, which aims to clear breakouts and protect against future flaws, works best in a three-week series.
