New! dtox Day Spa: A Ventura Boulevard Stay-cation

Print This Post Print This Post


How often have you said that you need a getaway but can’t take the time or spend the money? Feeling stressed, you might go for a massage at any one of the quick fix cookie cutter facilities that seem to pop up on every other block. But what if you need something more expansive and unlike any spa you’ve seen in the 818 (and you can receive  25% off for being an MDF reader)?

How about a “stay-vacation” where spa services wrap you in luxury, and where afterward, you can relax for as long as you wish on an outdoor shaded sundeck with pillowed lounge chairs and cozy pods, or in the open relaxation room sipping complimentary fruit infused water, fresh fruit and naturally baked goodies?

The couples room for massages can also be used for parties.

Enter the dtox Day Spa, which opened earlier this month in the Encino Courtyard  by co-owners Kenneth King and Cary Mock.  They opened their first location in Los Feliz four years ago.

“We think of it as a resort in the city,” said King, describing both facilities.

“We’re committed to making a visit here an experience as opposed to a treatment…it’s somewhere you can hang out all day,” added Mock, who is also responsible for the design.

There are separate dressing rooms for women and men with places to relax. Women's seen above.

Unlike the sterile in and out nature of many mass produced chain spas, Mock has designed a space that has a modern flair with Indo-Asian influences — bringing color, warmth and sophistication throughout the facility. Stone statues, waterfalls, modern furniture and creative light fixtures create a soothing and inspired environment.

There are ten rooms for spa services,  private steam and dressing rooms for men and women, plus one coed steam room that fits eight to ten people.  Interested in a more romantic occasion? There is also a couples room for massages (which can also be booked for parties, showers and corporate functions).

According to King and Mock, all the technicians go through intense training unique to dtox and have been working for at least five years.

Lounge in this open relaxation room after a treatment. Fruit infused water, fruit and baked treats await and are complimentary.

There’s a wide variety of unique  eco-friendly facials, massages, body treatments and tub treatments,  as well as packages for singles and couples. Products used and sold are all natural and organic without parabens, oils and metals.
