Apotheque Lifestyle Spa resides in what long-time Oceansider’s call the “Bunker House” - an old brick building that built in 1886 located on Cleveland Street. The building itself has an incredible story to tell (if only walls could talk!), but what Michelle Bartok and her team at Apotheque have done with the business that resides within those walls is just as incredible.
Bartok started in the Spa Industry some 28 years ago when she began manufacturing specialized product for resorts and spas. The manufacturing company, Innovative Body Science, completely customizes each product sold to resorts and spas around the world. A product made for Hawaii would have a different makeup than a product made for Japan. After so much growth and experience in the manufacturing side of the spa industry, Michelle decided it was time to open what she called a “show room” for the best of the best of her product. Alas, Apotheque Lifestyle Spa in Oceanside was born.
