Spa Profile: EarthTonics Spa
Located in downtown Ojai, EarthTonics Spa was founded by Holistic Esthetician Daron Hope. The intimate spa offers nourishing rituals to cultivate bliss and relaxation through plant medicine, massage, and energetics. The products used are handmade in-house and custom-blended to fit each client’s unique needs. Committed to product purity, the EarthTonics product collection is made from sustainably-harvested botanicals and is free from toxic preservatives.
“These products are designed to bring you back to yourself—the most natural, radiant version of yourself,” says Hope. We caught up with the EarthTonics founder to find out what makes the spa a magical destination for the skin and spirit.
Why You’ll Love It: The EarthTonics Spa is a sanctuary for the skin care purist. Our clients love that they can trust our offerings to be both incredibly effective, but also thoughtfully supportive of whole-body health. We believe that the foundation of healing begins by creating a deeply relaxed, nurturing space where the nervous system can be brought into balance. Our clients often report profound levels of peace and deep meditation during their treatments, and awaken to not only rejuvenated skin, but also a new relationship to themselves and their self care.
Our clients also love that each and every product we use on their skin is hand-blended in house. We utilize local herbs sourced from organic farms, and botanicals that are ethically wild-harvested from the corners of the Earth where they thrive. Our potent treatments are customized to our clients’ unique constitutions and ever-changing needs. We combine this ancient plant wisdom with the latest discoveries in the field of skin health. Ultimately, our treatments are a blend of herbalism and state-of-the-art technology.
Key Features: Our spa is a small, private, humble space in the heart of downtown Ojai. Unlike a sprawling day spa, the magic of our space really happens in the treatment room, on the table. Our team of intuitive, sensitive practitioners takes great care preparing the room for each individual client by lighting candles, clearing energy with herbs and singing bowls, and fluffing our famously cloud-like treatment beds.
Bonus: Because the EarthTonics skincare line is made under the same roof, our spa is also home to a vast herbal apothecary. Our knowledgable practitioners draw from these botanicals to create custom formulations during treatments.
Spa Snacks: We offer complimentary herbal tea and fresh, local seasonal fruit like pixie tangerines.
Splurge Treatment: A favorite splurge treatment is definitely “The Works” Facial, which combines all of our facial rituals into a deluxe two-hour experience. "The Works" combines the blissful aromatics and herbal magic of our Botanical Facial with the ancient energetic balancing of Kansa Bronze—Ayurvedic massage tools that concentrate your innate life-force energy as they hypnotically massage the face and neck to increase blood flow, stimulate collagen, and drain the lymphatic system. The ritual is completed by amplifying the body’s healing potential with bio-frequency micro currents and color therapy. Woven with a grounding foot treatment, top-shelf apothecary formulas and aromatherapy, this treatment will transport you to another world and back.
Unique Treatments: Our Microcurrent and Light Bio-Frequency Facial (which is incorporated into “The Works”) is a profoundly effective and relaxing treatment. It’s built on our signature Botanical Facial, and enhanced with bio-identical microcurrent frequencies to lift, firm, clarify, and brighten. These barely perceptible frequencies gently move through the skin, attuning every cell to specific healing responses in the body.
These gentle, non-invasive vibrations (combined with color therapy) are even used around the delicate eye and lip area to support graceful aging. Internally-motivated issues, such as hormonal acne or rosacea, can be addressed by working holistically via acupressure points. This treatment awakens the unmistakable glow of wellness, with results continuing for days outside the treatment room as the body continues to vibrate in wavelengths correlating to collagen fibroblasts, wound repair, regeneration, and muscle toning.
We’re also excited to have acupuncturist Lyndsey Madden joining our team this summer. On Tuesdays, she will be offering Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, working with points to relax chronic tension, tone muscles, and work with the organ meridian map of the face to balance the energetic shrine of the body. Both of these treatments (and especially in combination) are incredible holistic alternatives to Botox, fillers, and other invasive approaches.
Featured Product Line: We exclusively use EarthTonics Botanical Skincare (made in-house) and custom-blended formulas from our Botanical Apothecary. Handcrafted in small batches from pure organic and wild-harvested ingredients, our robust whole-plant formulas deliver the essential elements for a radiant complexion in fresh, bio-available formulas that vibrate with healing life force energy.
