Dr. MJ Torres: A Woman Who Inspire

Dr. Mary Jane "MJ" Torres
When we do open talks about people who inspire people, a lot of popular names will definitely come out. In the local scene, particularly “women who inspire” in the genre of Aesthetic Medicine, one name cannot be missed out.

 Recently awarded by Solar Publishing as one of the “Women Who Inspire”, Dr. Mary Jane Torres, or Dra. “MJ” to her league of friends and clients, is one that exudes what true beauty is all about. The woman behind the continuous success of The Zen Institute continues to be an inspiration to many.
“The inspiration springs from my four children. They keep me going. And when I see my patients look and feel good about themselves, then that’s where I revved up!” shares Dra. MJ.

Since the entry of The Zen Institute, with such revolutionary, innovative changes being adapted in Aesthetic Medicine, women of this generation began to experience and realize what true beauty is all about.

According to Dra. MJ, true beauty goes beyond quick fixes. True beauty is a journey towards self-improvement, wellness, self-realization and transformation. “Achieving true beauty is an art and also therapy. You can’t have self-realization overnight. It takes time,” she said.

If she were to describe the concept of a beautiful woman, it is “beauty from within, positive outlook, cares about herself, healthy lifestyle, caring& loving.  All these radiates to the outside.”

Wellness is at the core of all programs at The Zen Institute. Using the latest medical beauty advances, and most up-to-the-minute technologies, clients are able to look, feel and live their best! – without surgery, pain, scars and downtime.

How does she keep up with the competitive and dynamic industry that she belongs to? “Constant research and development, aligning with the European countries. This way, we keep the edge.”

Among the services of Zen, their Non-Surgical Facelift and Contour (PRP & PCL) is the most in demand and most tested. While the latest breakthrough is Zen’s Power Cell Lift.

The Power Cell Lift is a new lifting technique which injects multiple threads for strong lifting effect, enhancing cell engraftment to the treatment areas.

These non-invasive aesthetic treatments at The Zen Institute are also opportunities for a deeper therapy for patients, such becoming part and parcel of their total wellness program. This is something you cannot achieve with surgical approaches. Dra. MJ adds, “even if your appearance is enhanced through surgery, but if you don’t know how to appreciate your true worth, you will still be an unhappy person.”

One that constitutes her greatest achievements in the beauty and wellness industry is having established the first “medical spa”- The Zen Institute -merging the concept of spa and medical facility. This underlines total wellness approach which is more than simply aesthetics, seen in most of their programs like weight management and detoxification, anti-aging with non-invasive facelift and body contouring.

Dra. MJ’s unique approach to total wellness is “further strengthen through Vietura and true concept of a medical spa thru the facilities of the Zen Institute, reaching out to the outskirts like Zen Institute Batangas branch.”

Vietura (Aesthetic Lifestyle) is about finding the interconnection between aesthetic procedures, integrative medicine and lifestyle coaching. The Zen Institute speaks of the true concept and commitment of a medical spa, non invasive and holistic in approach.

In terms of expansion, Zen Institute’s Scout Rallos branch in Quezon City will have a 500sq facility to provide a full spa service, aesthetic treatment, and wellness center. This is on top of their full line-up of exciting promos, signature programs and new endorsements.

The unique touch, “creative masterpiece” of Zen is seen in the likes of Ayen Laurel, Franco Laurel, Eula Valdez, Korina Sanchez, Giselle Sanchez, Chanda Romero, Gina Alajar, Cory Quirino, Rene Salud, Philip Abadicio, Ciara Sotto, Lyn Sherman, Vicky Rashton (Mutya ng Pilipinas 2011), Rizzini Alexis Gomez (Mutya ng Pilipinas 2012), to name a few.

A Diffrent High with Sante Barley Drink

Sole distributor of pure and organic wellness products in the Philippines, Santé International, Inc., proves it only takes a small capital and a determined initiative to sustain your health and improve one’s wealth.
Many of its successful distributors nationwide who just purchased the Santé Pure Barley Pack worth P3,998 are now all thinking of continuously increasing their monthly earnings or eyeing a well-off early retirement.

One high-flier who confessed growing up in difficult life, ran away from home at a young age of 14 and experienced severe hunger, danger and depression on the street recalls how Santé changed his points of view.

“Nagbago po ang lahat ng makilala ko ang Sante. Bumuti po ang aking paggawi, gumanda ang aking pananaw sa buhay at nagsimula po ulit akong mangarap. Katulad ng Santé gusto ko rin makatulong sa iba na nawawalan ng pag-asa. Salamat po talaga!” exclaims grateful Joel V. Luyong, a member of the company’s Executive Millionaires Circle (EMC).

“We believe that true leadership and accomplishment entail helping others achieve their own hopes and aspirations,” says Jesus Joey Marcelo, Chief Executive Officer of Santé International, Inc. 

The successful direct marketing company boosts its members’ entrepreneurial spirit through business development classes, leadership trainings and teamwork enhancement initiatives. Through these efforts, Santé is confident that its people are well-trained to use and market their products.

“Confidence comes from discipline and training. I gained mine from Sante,” declares Jonathan D. Ledesma, a proud member of EMC.

Start easy
To be part of Santé, one needs immersion by using its exceptional products and experience the health benefits it can give through the Pure Barley Pack. Next is to make a name list of those whom you want to share the goodness of barley with, either sick relatives or health-conscious friends.
“So far, these (Santé products) are the most saleable products that I have ever marketed,” exclaims Leonardo G. Atlas, Jr., a member of EMC who also serve as mentor for new stakeholders. “I am living my dreams and not just living my life, now that Im with Sante.”

Because of Santé’s strong business plan, future members will not worry attaining the similar success of the early starters.

There are at least 5 ways by which a Sante distributor can earn bonuses from their own purchases, their downlines, and their downlines’ purchases.

How do members get their commissions? “In three convenient ways: wire transfer, commission checks and e-money or League Wallet,” explains Paul Caluag, Director for Network Development of Santé International, Inc.

Once a distributor, members will have their personal business website to manage their dealings and transactions; AirLoad Distributorship to sell almost all kinds of load for mobile phones, online games and Internet usage; and various discounts for scholarship, training and hotel certificates.

On top of these, members who show dedication and excellence in marketing may avail of the car allowance program and an internal promo called “Byaheng Milyonaryo,” a free travel package to Asia, Europe or North America.  

Aspiring members who live outside Manila may visit any of the 89 Santé branches that are widely distributed in many areas nationwide.

Indeed, there are many competitive direct marketing companies in the country, but not all members can see the principle of security, effectiveness of product, compensation package and technology to do business and eventually succeed.

This is also the reason why “Kuya” Kim Atienza only chooses Santé to support his everyday life being a television host, weatherman and sportsman. “Santé is not only a network marketing company, the potency of its products care for its people and the community,” enounces Atienza.
