Last week, I was able to join a Blogger’s Sparty at Zen Institute.
The Zen Institute, owned and headed by Dr. Mary Jane “MJ” Torres, is the first and true medical spa in the country. It is a clinic, and yet it has a calming effect of a spa. Most of the treatments they do are non-surgical and non-invasive, which how Zen is known for- in the industry and the market.
I arrived there in the midst of heavy rain. Upon entering the lobby, the staff immediately welcomes and greeted me with a smile. And I was lead to the first floor receiving where I wad told I’d get a free treatment.
I was given a VIP card which telle me I’m entitled to 20% discount in some services and that I’d get any two free treatment. My choices were Resolift, Ultralipo, and Diamond Peel. I chose Diamond Peel because I was told it will take away dead skin cells and help in lightening my dark spots.
This is where I got my Diamond Peel treatment. It was a cool, quiet room. I was very relaxed and I was assisted with an approachable wellness consultant who answered all of my questions.
It was a relaxing 15 minute treatment. After such a short time, my skin felt lighter and it looks fresh.
Dr. Mary Jane “MJ” Torres met us in the lounge to tell us all about their new Weight Management Programs.
In addition to helping you feel and look better, achieving a healthier body weight is good for your overall health and well being. At Zen Institute, a particular science-based protocol is strictly in place. There are weight management programs and maintenance programs, overseen by doctors and wellness consultants. Zen’s Weight Management programs are scientifically-proven to be safe and effective.
Two of these programs are: Colonics and IV Micro Nutrition.
Colon Hydrotherapy aka Colonics is a way to clean the colon apart from the non-surgical way of flushing toxins out of the body.
Guided by the philosophy that holistic health is a harmonious combination of medical science, creativity and aesthetic sense, The Zen Institute employs a process that is done with the use of the top of the line hydrotherapy machine and licensed doctors. The therapy usually lasts from 50 up to 60 minutes. On a long term basis, Colonics, can reach an even deeper layer of body/mind connections, emotional/mental baggage and energetic re-patterning.
Part of the program is a coffee cocktail to enhance faster metabolism and improve better absorption of the nutrients needed by the body. Colonics should be employed at least four times a year to facilitate the accumulation of the toxins in the body, however, it can be done weekly specially by those who don’t eat much vegetables, drink alcohol a lot, and have unhealthy diet and lifestyle. A patient who has undergone colonics should maintain a good and healthy diet as this encourages the growth of good bacteria in the body.
Intravenuous (IV) Micronutrition is a procedure that delivers micronutrients straight to the veins—no need to pass through the gastrointestinal system and liver enzymes. Hence, it spares the liver and gastrointestinal tract from further exposure to drugs. And nothing is lost in the process; all the nutrients in the right amounts get absorbed directly and become ready for the body to use.
At the Zen Institute, they offer four types of IV micronutrients: Immune Booster (consists of vitamin B-complex and thymus extract , which work together to improve T-cells), Revitalize (Vitamin B-complex, electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids), Rejuvenate (vitamin B-complex, electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids to enhance cell regeneration from within), and Weight Management (amino acids, L-carnatine, electrolytes, and vitamin C, to speed up metabolism and fat mobilization).
Overall, weight management, to make it effective, safe and precise, should observe a strict science-based protocol, in a holistic approach. And only a true, medical spa, can professionally give you the results you aim for.
Dr. MJ Torres was very generous and gave away 10 free Colon Hydrotherapy to lucky bloggers. I was one of the lucky ones chosen via raffle!. I got intimidated though, and ask if I could change it to IV Micronutrition instead. I’m so glad they allowed it.
Will let you know how was the treatment once I avail it.

Wow what an interesting article! The ‘colonics’ part especially interested me, I’d never heard of it!
Franc Ramon says
Colonics is fast becoming popular now because of more people’s awareness on fitness.
Kath Rivera says
First time to hear colonics and micronutrient IV. Those look promising. I was invited by Zen but wasn’t able to attend the event. I should visit them one of these days.
Zen Institute has really stepped up! How was your diamond peel? Did they do pricking as well like a normal facial?
i must try this spa treatment after giving birth 😀
I’ve never heard of “colonics”, very interesting article. I bookmarked this so I can go back and read it again. I want to know more, so I will wait on the results of your treatment.:)
I have never really heard of colonics but this is a pretty interesting read. Cant wait to check back on the results though; mighty curious to try on the treatment <3
Intravenuous (IV) Micronutrition service is interesting…how much does it cost and how many sessions should one undergo to notice its effect?
