Wellness travel soars to new heights in Asia this week, we hear. Word on the street is the Sofitel Philippine Plaza is opening a health and aesthetic institute that is rarely seen inside a hotel.
Vietura, as the new facility is called, will offer an array of customizable programs designed to help travelers look and feel better. Services range from weight management tools such as Calloblock (which binds carbs and fats in the food you consume to speed up the calorie-burning process) to anti-aging procedures. Vietura will also have remedies for complexion problems and ingestive disorders.
The staff will consist of Dr. Mary Jane Torres, a Filipina who has spent years studying mesotheropy; 12 registered nurses; a dietician; and a lifestyle coach. There will be 20 treatment rooms, as well.
