Encino just got more relaxing with the arrival of dtox day spa. The name may sound familiar to Eastsiders since the flagship haven is nestled in Los Feliz (3206 Los Feliz Blvd.), and the amenities have been taken up a notch in the Valley.

If you’re new to the dtox story, it began with two spa aficionados with in-the-know experience. Cary Mock, a reputable interior designer, and entrepreneur Kenneth King put their heads together to create the luxury a lot of spas seemed to lack. The duo set to create their spas with renewable and eco-friendly textiles and textures, as well as provide an experience that is not only inviting, but also memorable.

They did a great job of extending this vision into the Encino space. Located on busy Ventura Boulevard, if you blink you’ll miss it, so make sure you pay close attention. Once you arrive, the ambiance is light and airy, perfect for settling down after a long day.

It gets hotter in the Valley than anywhere else, except the Inland Empire, and dtox has you covered with a refreshing cucumber elixir to start your spa experience. Once you receive your locker, change into your robe and sandals and then head over to the lounge, or if you prefer to get really relaxed, the sauna or steam room. Treasures abound at dtox, be it a tub treatment of green algae, skin rejuvenating goat’s milk, an organic mud wrap or the always-needed massages, dtox provides almost anything you could want in a spa.

After you are done with your spa experience, go out and lounge in one of the cabanas in the outdoor patio. You will be treated with refreshments like hot tea and brownies, especially satisfying while watching the sunset over the San Fernando Valley.
