MANILA, Philippines - The Philippines’ medical-spa industry earned another accolade through The Zen Institute, voted one of the top 10 medical spas or “medi-spas” in Asia by a leading luxury magazine.

In the most recent review of Asia’s top medical-spa institutes conducted by Singapore-based Asia Spa magazine, Asia’s top luxury and lifestyle magazine dedicated to health and wellness, it voted for The Zen Institute to be part of the top 10 choices primarily because of its “holistic approach to wellness.”

“I was really surprised but elated at this development because this is good for the country, in particular for our medical-tourism sector. We are happy that our local medical tourism destinations are getting recognition from prestigious organizations overseas and hope we can further attract more clients, not just foreign tourists but more importantly our fellow kababayans,” explains Dr. Mary Jane Valdecanas, owner of The Zen Institute.

To jumpstart everything, Dr. Valdecanas intimates that they recently introduced a balikbayan discount card in partnership with door-to-door courier service providers as a means of promoting The Zen Institute to Filipinos living or working abroad. She says that she hopes other medical spas also vigorously promote the Philippines as a medical destination in order to pump-prime the domestic economy in terms of bringing precious dollars to the national coffers.

With its embedded philosophy of taking care of one’s wellness needs, Asia Spa says that anyone who comes to The Zen Institute can expect to “receive advice and guidance on diet and lifestyle habits,” alongside the chosen treatment for skin rejuvenation, hair revitalizing or body and face contouring.

Promising the “art of body perfection,” the Zen Institute boasts a center for beauty that pampers the senses. The modern yet rustic design exudes a homey feeling that allows for a peaceful and relaxing mood.

The world-class medical team at The Zen Institute is comprised of several doctors and dermatologists headed by Dr. Valdecanas, a prime proponent in the area of body sculpting technology.

Dr. Valdecanas’ pioneering achievements include introducing to the local market the “Resonax” procedure in non-invasive body and face sculpting, the first of its kind in Asia and in Europe. Dr. Valdecanas is also known for being a top-notch teacher and trainer of doctors all around the Asian region about the latest techniques in aesthetic medicine.

Starting this month until the end of the year, The Zen Institute is offering special Christmas beauty and treatment packages and products that promise to soothe the soul and re-energize one’s sagging spirits amid the joyous Yuletide season.

The Zen Institute has branches at Unit C1 & C2, Bonifacio Stopover, Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City (865-2027-28/09175481117); 69-D Scout Rallos Street (inside Fanny Serrano Salon) near Tomas Morato Avenue, Quezon City (352-5013); 5th floor, The Podium, ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City (635-4708/634-2480); and at the Sofitel Philippines Plaza Manila, CCP Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City (832-6957/551-5555 local 1524 and 1542).
