"A Medical SPA", Zen Institute is not just an ordinary SPA or a beauty clinic but more. Dr. MJ 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: 

Aesthetics -Facial contouring, Hair treatments, Body sculpting & Skin rejuvenation.
Lifestyle - Nutritional programs, Fitness programs (Yoga/Zumba/Rip60), Counselling
Pampering - Spa, Anti-ageing, Weight Management

To expound, 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. 

So if you notice, it's an overall program for the body, mind and soul. The Zen Institute offers various programs for those who want to shed off unwanted pounds safely. Their weight management program includes a carefully monitored and supported nutritional counseling to clients. Dr. Torres also stress that she believes in achieving that picture-perfect body in a non-invasive way, which includes meal replacement, proper diet, a workout regimen and colon cleansing.

I was able to go around the newly renovated/expanded branch in Tomas Morato and it was really nice! There were a lot of rooms with different equipments set up. The photo below is the area that will welcome you when you go up the second floor.

And here are the rooms...

The place was really big and spacious, it's not one of those places where you will feel that you are cramped up in one room. They also have an area for Zumba, Yoga and RIP 60! 

Meal Replacement
Drink around 10 to 12 glasses of water. Two apples for breakfast, two for lunch and two for dinner.  "That would really reset and jumpstart your weight management program,” Torres shared. 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", Torres added.

Non-invasive Treatments
The Zen Institute also promotes non-invasive procedures to sustain weight loss. Torres said, her clinic offers Lipocryo, 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
L-carnitine plays a major role in the transport of fatty acids and in other important metabolic processes it 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. It improves your recovery from intense training, increases work capacity, prevents diabetes and improves insulin health.

Mesotherapy is composed of multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins and other ingredients into subcutaneous fat, specifically targeting adipose fat cells.

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
Colonics (which is now available at Zen Institute), 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. 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. Using this procedure at least twice a month, clients can lose up to 20 pounds.

Workout Regimen
The Zen Institute does not only 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.

Here are photos during the event.

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.
