Taking full advantage of its postcard setting along PCH, Malibu’s CURE Wellness Center is a top-of-the-line medical facility, luxury day and med spa. Founded in 2007 by Dr. Lisa Benya and conveniently located next to her private Malibu Medical practice, CURE combines traditional internal medicine and ancient healing modalities like Reiki and reflexology with stellar cosmetic treatments. Here’s 10 reasons we’re saying, “Sign us up!”
1 | Members Only (Almost) CURE Wellness Center
For the cachet of a private club without the clique when it comes to integrative wellness, this health-focused hotspot is top of the line. While open to the public, CURE membership perks (priced at $1,000 a month) go way beyond that of a regular spa. If access to a private medical team, health-coaching sessions and a complimentary monthly service of your choice aren’t enticing enough, the ocean-facing deck, amenities more akin to a boutique hotel and members-only parties with like-minded wellness seekers should help sway you.

2 | Personalized & Professional
“We provide a highly personalized, one-on-one service at CURE with a team of professionals in every single field of health and wellness to support you,” explains Public Relations and Marketing Director Sabrina Canario. “On your first day as a Club member, you will meet with your health coach, who will sit down with you to assess your goals. Maybe you want longer hair or need to work on nutrition; she will help make a roadmap and then set up a monthly calendar, scheduling all of your appointments accordingly.”
3 | Around-the-Clock Access CURE Wellness Center
For members on the go, time is precious. With CURE’s 24/7 access to a medical team, it’s goodbye month-long waitlists and seeing a different doctor every visit. According to Canario, they love being able to build a trusting, one-on-one relationship with the same doctor. Need something last minute? Members can call or text CURE’s concierge service provider, who will coordinate everything.
4 | Never Wait on Hold Again…
Let the horror that is automated phone systems and “press one to continue” never darken your days or nights again. Club CURE’s concierge coordinator can schedule all member doctor appointments in addition to arranging house calls for the med spa, salon and beauty services. “Much the same as at Malibu Medical, CURE’s concierge provides direct access to the medical team,” says Canario.
5 | Not in Town? No Problem!
Being able to contact the CURE medical team at any time of the day from anywhere in the world is huge for the multiple-homeowner and celebrity members who travel often and aren’t always in Malibu. “Say you fall off of your Vespa in Italy or hurt yourself surfing in Mexico. Our concierge service provider will coordinate everything from making sure you get to the hospital, hiring a translator, FaceTiming Dr. Benya, connecting you with a specialist and organizing travel arrangements back to the States if required.”
6 | Virtual Visits CURE Wellness Center
Among other “2020 pandemic pivots,” minimizing the transmission risk of COVID-19 during healthcare appointments for CURE was crucial. In response, face-to-face visits can now be digital; think of it as the techy 2021 version of making a house call. Jet-setting members or those keen to maintain social distancing can not only direct queries to Dr. Benya via the Telehealth program, but can access mental health, fitness, nutrition and spa services as well. “No more self-diagnosing on WebMD,” Canario says. “Just hop on a Telehealth call—we’re here to answer any questions, no matter how big or how small.”
7 | Get Tested CURE Wellness Center
Testing over 30,000 patients at her practice since the outbreak began thanks to Dr. Benya, Club CURE members don’t have to face long lines at COVID-19 testing centers. “Whether it’s a family gathering or a CEO wants to get their staff tested at the office, we offer a drive-by service but can also make house calls for PCR and rapid antigen testing,” says Canario. Fun fact: CURE has also provided rapid coronavirus tests on the door for numerous A-list parties in and around Los Angeles.
8 | Stay Connected CURE Wellness Center
With its direct link back to Dr. Benya and her team, Canario says the CURE Health Ring has been a big hit among members since it launched. “Let’s say you get COVID or your symptoms are getting worse and your blood oxygen levels drop below 90; we get notified then check in with you daily to monitor vitals and provide treatment.” A helpful all-around tool, the ring also tracks daily steps, calorie intake and sleep patterns.
9 | Privileged Pricing on Services
Another major perk to the Club CURE membership is the special pricing on medical spa and salon treatments. From a subtle midweek lip plump to balayage and a blowout on the weekend, members receive 20% off services. Canario says IV therapy is one of their most popular—try the immune-boosting Malibu Myers Cocktail or NAD to rev up energy levels. “When you get an IV, you’re usually just sitting in the room; here, you can relax on our deck, take in the ocean views and order lunch from Nobu across the street.”
10 | Med-Grade Skincare Products
Members also receive an exclusive 20% off pricing on a range of products, including Dr. Benya’s medical-grade CURE Skincare line, which is formulated with potent ingredients that help keep your face looking fresh and hydrated. Standout players from the six-piece line include the MicroDERM Scrub (hello, radiant complexion) and Vita-CE with Ferulic Acid Serum, which helps correct hyperpigmentation.
