The Zen Institute Voted among Top 10 Medi-Spas in Asia


The Philippines' medical-spa industry earned another accolade through The Zen Institute, voted as one of the Top 10 medical spas or "medi-spas" in Asia by Singapore-based "Asia Spa" magazine, Asia's top luxury and lifestyle magazine dedicated to health and wellness. It was voted for its "holistic approach to wellness.""I was really surprised but elated at this development because this is good for the country, particularly 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 kababayans," explains Dr. Mary Jane Valdecanas, owner of The Zen Institute.Dr. Valdecanas said 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 said 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 said that anyone who comes in 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.The Zen Institute is one of the country's leading medical spa institutions and one of the early establishments put up during the boom in the "medi-spa" trend in the early part of the decade. The Zen Institute presented itself as a timely answer to a growing demand for non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic beauty treatments while inside a luxury spa environment among discriminating Filipino clients who have learned to appreciate having their beauty treatments in glamorous yet comfortable surroundings.
