Milwaukee is one of the more stylish yet easy-going cities of the Midwest. When Milwaukeeans are looking to relax tired bodies after a long hike or work week, Milwaukee day spas offer a wide range of relaxation services to give tired skin and stiff shoulders the TLC they deserve.

Spas in Milwaukee include the WELL Spa at the Pfister, one of the more upscale spas, located downtown in the tony Pfister Hotel. Known for its great atmosphere, friendly massage therapists, and range of indulgent services to thoroughly pamper and refresh, its private suites and champagne enhance their world-class care. Also downtown is GLOW Salon and Spa, a destination for anyone looking for a manicure, pedicure, facial, or massage. Their Beach Babe Ready package combines a facial, mani, pedi, bikini wax, and airbrush tan for truth in advertising.

Most Milwaukee massage studios provide European-style professional massage with Midwestern comfort. For full-service or deep-tissue massage, Natural Touch Massage Therapy in the historic Montgomery House on the Lower East Side focuses on health rather than beauty benefits, specializing in pain management, myofascial release, and neuromuscular treatments. Also on the Lower East Side, Core Essence Yoga offers Thai massage to enhance flexibility, especially when combined with yoga classes. For one-stop hair and massage services, Neroli Salon and Spa on East Chicago Street in the Third Ward has deep-tissue, Aveda hydrotherm, shiatsu, Thai, and stone massage. Their comprehensive hair services specialize in formal dos for weddings.

Milwaukee hair salons like DiCarlo Salon & Spa and The Establishment in the Shorewood neighborhood are two of the highest-rated combination salons and have great eyelash and hair extension services. For the more budget minded, East Town Spa with two locations offers the same services but at junior-, senior-, and master-stylist rates. No matter what upscale services are sought, Milwaukee has plenty of five-star treatments at the city’s three-star prices.
