Holistic Weight Management by Zen Institute Medical Spa Review

by - Sunday, October 12, 2014

I was always curious to try out services on a medical spa. Ever since, I've always believed in holistic wellness. That beauty has to be holistic--both inside and out. At a young age, I was very lucky to be knowledgeable about this kind of stuff already, that's why you should be, too! 

The Zen Institute, known for being the first and the true medical spa in the country, introduces a new weight management service in line with their concept of holistic wellness--Colonics and IV Micro Nutrition.

Dr. Mary Jane "MJ" Torres reiterated that in addition to helping you look and feel better, achieving a healthy body is also good for your overall health and well being. 

Colon Hydrotherapy or Colonics, one of the scientifically-proven safe and effective weight management service, was introduced to us by Dra. MJ. This is the process of cleaning the colon apart from the non-surgical way of flushing toxins out of the body. 

Zen Institute uses a top of the line hydrotherapy machine to take out the toxins on your colon in a span of 50-60 minutes.  

Not a veggie eater like me? They suggest that we should have this service done on a weekly basis to maintain a good and healthy diet until we became disciplined with our lifestyle. This also applies to alcohol-drinkers and chain smokers, mind you. 

As we age, we tend to take more medications which helps us think, "How is my liver after all of this medications?" They have IV Micro Nutrition in this case. 

The Intravenuous (IV) Micro Nutrition is a procedure that delivers micronutritions straight to the veins. No need to pass through the gastrointestinal system and living enzymes. Meaning, this spares the liver and gastrointestinal tract from further exposure to drugs.

Take about cleaning your body inside and not just outside!

I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the bloggers to try out Colonics. I'm so excited because I wonder how much toxins has been stucked in my body in my twenty years of existence. 

Love the fact that even though it's a clinic, the vibe of the spa is still present there! It's kinda helpful for first-timers who will try their services to avoid daunting. (Including me!)

Before trying out Colonics, I first tried their Facial service. It was so good that it left my face smooth and dewy. The hand of the staff is also very gentle that's why my face feel so relaxed. Even though I got some of my pinples pricked, I've noticed that the spot of the pimples were gone after a few days.

Now, I'm gonna start my Colonics treatment. Below is my before and after drink.

Before: Mixed Fruits and Vegetables
After: Yakult

It's a must that a doctor will check your status before you undergo the treatment.
After that, I went to the actual room where I can do the Colonics. 

It was quite spacious and at the same time, very dainty. It was a plus factor on why my nervousness fade little by little.

There's also a tv beside the bed so that you can free your mind from all the stress of the toxin that's flushing out of your body.

Seated on the top-of-the-line hydrotherapy machine, this is what I saw.


The staff will use a not-so-hard, less than one inch, tube to be placed on your rectum to inject water straight to your colon. 

There were directions in front of me that's why I'm guided by the process. Also, the staff was very accomodating. Every time I call her from the doorbell, she immediately responds and asks me if I feel anything wrong.

It took me like 45 minutes to finish the process. After that, it's a little shocking that I don't feel tired or somewhat sleepy. I also can't help not touching my tummy because of the noticeable change in shape.

After the treatment, I was asked to be on a soft diet for the first 12 hours.

Say hello to my first ever bowl of caesar salad!
Got my first plate of Caesar salad! Even though I'm not a veggie-eater, Colonics changed the way I think, Caesar salad is surprisingly good! I hope this is the start of my good relationship with dark green leafy vegetables.
