and I love The Tox
Grab your chlorophyll water, get comfy, and get ready to hear all about The Tox Walnut Creek!
I just left The Tox and I could not get home fast enough to this blog post.
What is The Tox?
The Tox Walnut Creek is the Bay Area’s first lymphatic drainage massage spa.
The Tox Technique is NOT your average lymphatic massage. It is a curation of the best modalities from all around the world. The Tox Method is a unique blend of Japanese ampuku, European and Brazilian cellulite massage, lymphatic drainage, and myofascial release that detoxifies the body and mind.
Before I break it down, you need to know that this is not a calming/relaxing massage treatment. Yes, there were some moments of relaxation but this is an aggressive treatment. I was wide awake the entire time…and I wouldn’t say that it was painful, but it was definitely uncomfortable at times.
Just as the Tox Technique is a unique blend of various massage modalities, outpatient addiction centers offer a range of treatment options that can be tailored to the individual’s specific needs. Outpatient addiction centers provide a less intensive treatment option for individuals who do not require 24-hour medical supervision or detoxification. These centers offer evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing, as well as medication-assisted treatment for individuals struggling with opioid addiction. Outpatient addiction centers also provide support groups and counseling services for individuals in recovery and their families. By offering a range of treatment options, outpatient addiction centers can help individuals achieve long-term sobriety and lead fulfilling lives in recovery.
I had the 105 minute The Master Tox + Facial treatment today.
The treatment starts with the sculpting facial -> this is NOT your typical facial. This facial gives you immediate results removing muscle tension and naturally sculpting your face while ridding your body of excess toxins and bloat. The facial includes the use of a Gua Sha stone and Tox Sculpting wand to assist in toning the muscles of the face. The facial was by far the most relaxing (and least painful) part of the treatment. The facial is completed with the custom TOX caffeinated mask and let me tell you -> my jawline is popping and I am READY for my date tonight!

Next up -> The Master Tox
The Master Tox is a drainage technique that helps improve health while working directly with your lymphatic system. The Tox proprietary method moves fluid towards lymph nodes while incorporating different techniques that increase your metabolic rate, giving you long-lasting results.
Not only does this treatment flush water retention and give you an overall leaner look, the lymphatic system is also directly associated with the whole-body function. Improvements are evident in the circulatory, respiratory, and endocrine systems.
For this part of the service, they really go to town on your body. Yes, you are on a massage table and you start on your back and flip to your tummy like a traditional massage…but this is nothing like a traditional massage. From tapping inside your armpits to suctioning your legs this is a TREATMENT, not a massage.
Did it hurt? YES
Did I enjoy every minute of it? YES YES YES

1st visit before and after photos ->
I can’t believe that I’m sharing these photos…
HOLY SHIT I lost all the bloat in my tummy and all the inches!
trust and believe I booked another appointment in two weeks
I had my second visit today and my mind was blown yet again. I had a different tech today and a bit of a different experience. Not only was this my second visit, but I ran 11 miles today and started the keto diet since my first visit.
I walked into The Tox Walnut Creek today exhausted from my run and with a raging headache from the keto flu and walked out a NEW PERSON. The treatment is excellent after long runs because it will help flush the lactic acid buildup from the run. It is also excellent to visit The Tox when you are on the keto diet because it helps with the metabolism. Here are some weight loss pills that actually work alongside with your diet for best results.

I came home with a lymphatic detox patch, face mask, and dry brush to use at home/

How do you get there?
If you are coming from San Francisco give yourself plenty of time! I had no trouble getting there from the city, but I did have a hard time locating The Tox in the shopping center.
Look for the Rite Aid and High Tech Burrito and The Tox is behind them!

The Tox Walnut Creek Q & A
I sent your questions to the team at The Tox.
Feel free to ask any additional questions in the comments.
Can you describe the body treatment more? Is there any traditional massage? Painful similar to a deep tissue? Do your muscles feel less tense after? Would you say this would help with digestive issues? Sorry, so many questions but I’m super interested!
The Tox Technique is a proprietary combination of Brazilian lymphatic massage and Japanese ampuku. There is no traditional massage as The Tox works on moving lymph fluid out of the tissues and back into the lymphatic system. It is focused on getting your lymphatic system super healthy which has so many health benefits. Rids your body of toxins, helps with digestion and gastrointestinal issues, helps with sleep, energy, chronic pain, mood and so much more! As far as pain is concerned.. it doesn’t really hurt, some things might feel slightly uncomfortable depending on the sensitivity of your skin and sometimes even the time of the month. Overall .. it is AMAZING!! definitely a MUST!
Do you have a discount code? How much does it cost?
The prices are as low as they will ever go for EVERYONE!! So take advantage of them NOW
How long do the results last? How long did the benefits last?
The goal is to get the body healthy from the inside out. Results vary depending upon the person and lifestyle. The first treatment or two is to really open up the lymph channels and get the toxins out. The subsequent times allow for better detox because the lymph nodes are not as clogged. NOTE: it’s not just about the water retention, the lymph system is responsible for flushing toxins out that cause: Fatigue, Sleeplessness, Abnormal Hormones, Digestion Issues, and Chronic Pain.
How often can/should you get this treatment done?
Zero injections or shots, right?
Correct. There are no injections or shots.
Curious if the second visit will fell less rough than the first?
Is it chill to do the day after a half marathon or should I wait?
Second Visit Questions
Did you lose weight/does it stay off?
It’s not a weight-loss treatment. It helps get rid of toxins that cause water retention and bloat. If you are trying to lose weight it helps with metabolism.
Curious if the second visit will fell less rough than the first?
The treatment shouldn’t really feel rough or painful. Some movements might hurt like on the stomach but overall should not be painful.
