Zen Institute launches its Medical Spa

As the healthcare market become more mainstream, an interesting hybrid healthcare/cosmetic facility called medical spa blossomed. Medical spas emerged ten years ago and are now exploding in number.

People now are living longer lives and are conscious about prolonging their health. That is why Zen Institute came up with its Four Pillars of a TRUE Medical Spa.

Zen Institute's Chief Executive Officer and Founder Dr. Mary Jane Torres reveals that “The very essence, the foundation that makes a medical spa – truly a medical spa is if it is able to fuse, blend, integrate without cutting corners the four elements:

Facial contouring
Hair treatments

Fitness programs (Yoga/Zumba/Rip60)

I.V. Nutrition

She then enumerates and expounds. “The Aesthetic element which is non-invasive, include facial contouring, hair treatments, body sculpting, skin rejuvenation, whitening, fillers for lips, nose, cheeks, Botox, carbon laser, and lipo-cryo that use extreme cold temperature to melt body fats without pain. The Integrative element applies non-invasive yet protocol-based approaches for various medical treatments is always, always based on a patient’s individual needs. It offers colonics nutrition which is an intravenous procedure done in-clinic for health and wellness within the patient’s body system and combine detoxification, dietary supplements, prescribed medication for hormonal balance. The Lifestyle element include body and mind pampering such as nutritional and calorie-burning fitness regimen: Yoga, TRX, RIP 60 and Zumba workouts and counseling with qualified personal trainers to help those who want to stay active, stretch and tone their muscles even while undergoing various treatments, while the The Pampering element offers spa treatments and protocols for anti-ageing and weight management are also considered a therapeutic treatment.” Indeed, these essential elements are the very pillars and bedrock…the very foundation that define an authentic Medical Spa.

Attain your dream body with The Zen Institute’s Weight Management Program

Everyone hopes of having a long and healthy life ahead. However, not everyone has the strong will and mindset to achieve it, no thanks to their sedentary lifestyle and bad eating habits.

That's where Dr. Mary Jane Torres comes in your life. Dr.Torres offers various programs for those who want to shed off unwanted pounds safely. Zen Institute's weight management program includes a carefully monitored and supported nutritional counseling to clients.

In achieving that picture-perfect body she believes in opting for a non-invasive procedures which includes meal replacement, proper diet, a workout regimen and colon cleansing.

Meal Replacement

Eating six apples a day is one way to jumpstart your metabolism according to Dr. Torres.

“That’s all you’re going to eat, and drink around 10 to 12 glasses of water. Eat two apples for breakfast, two for lunch and two for dinner. That would really reset and jumpstart your weight management program.” 

Torres however stressed, doing this is a one-time activity and should not replace regular meals. After that, patients can then proceed to having meal replacements. "Sometimes, our patients cannot cook healthy meals anymore, so we offer them meal replacements along with nutritional counseling."

Non-invasive Treatments

Aside from nutritional counseling, The Zen Institute also promotes non-invasive procedures to sustain weight loss. Torres said, her clinic offersLipocryo, a new technology that combines vacuum and specifically controlled cooling technology which reduces fat bulges. With Lipocryo, results can be achieved with up to three sessions every 45 days. Another procedure which Torres also offers her patients is Ultralipo.

An alternative to liposuction,Ultralipo offers a way to reduce general and localized cellulite and body volume. It is also known to decrease the size of problem areas by up to two centimeters per session.

Mesotherapy and L-Carnitine

Another way to help you achieve the body that you dream of is getting L-carnitine injections. L-carnitine plays a major role in the transport of fatty acids and in other important metabolic processes. Aside from that, L-carnitine also fights visceral belly fats which may later on lead to fat gain within the organs such as the liver, heart or even in muscle.

Aside from fat loss, L-carnitine also improves your recovery from intense training, increases work capacity, prevents diabetes and improves insulin health.  Zen Institute offers patients L-carnitine Injections two to three times a week for six weeks to ensure that weight loss is continuous.

Another effective fat burning method Zen offers is Mesotherapy. Mesotherapyis composed of multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins and other ingredients into subcutaneous fat, specifically targeting adipose fat cells. It is a procedure used for weight loss and body sculpting to reduce, eliminate and contour undesired fat pockets. This method targets the receptors on fat cells that produce lipogenesis or fat production and lipolysis which means fat breakdown. Once injected into the skin, the mesotherapy formula slowly diffuses into the fat, and breaks it down. However, the number of weight loss and body sculpting treatments required varies from person to person.

Colon Cleansing

The Zen Institute offers a new addition into their weight management program. Dr. Torres said, they now offer colon cleansing or “colonics” to clients who are keen on disposing all the negative wastes in the body.

Colonics are the gentle rinsing of the colon with warm water, to remove encrusted fecal matter, gas & mucus. This allows vital nutrients to be absorbed & leaves you feeling healthy & light. Aside from that, colonics also help retone& reshape the colon which is beneficial especially to those who are constipated.

The Zen Institute also offers a coffee cocktail for colonics clients, which can enhance faster metabolism and improve better absorption of nutrients in the body. Clients can lose up to 20 pounds using this procedure at least twice a month.

Workout Regimen

Not only does it offer medical procedures to their clients who want to lose and manage their weight. The medispa now offers workout classes for those who want to stay active and have “zen” in their lives. Zen offers yoga, TRX and RIP 60 classes at their newly-renovated Scout Rallos, QC branch.

Dr. Torres said, she decided to offer the services to ensure that her clients still get to work out, stretch and tone their muscles while undergoing various treatments from the medispa.

The Zen Institute is located at Ground Floor, Bonifacio Technology Center, 31st St., Corner 2nd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig (02-856-2027),69 Scout Rallos St., Tomas Morato Quezon City (02-441-1712/02-412-2528) and at the St. Frances Cabrini Medical Center, Maharlika Highway, Bgy. 2, Sto.Tomas, Batangas (+43-778-4811).
