As the first aesthetic institute of its kind in Asia, Vietura pioneers the country’s wellness tourism by introducing the Philippines to various internationally renowned best practices, innovations, and technology in aesthetic medicine. It is committed to providing the latest and most advanced aesthetic procedures. As it is located in a five-star hotel, it promotes wellness while in staycation mode.

Wellness and Natural Beauty: A Way of Life

Vietura’s name, coined from the French words “vie” and “natura,” which means “life” and “nature.” Guided by Zen Philosophy’s four pillars – aesthetic, integrative medicine, lifestyle, and pampering treatments – it considers wellness a journey, or a continuous experience.

Dr. MJ explains, “We believe that wellness is not a quick fix; otherwise, one will fail to create a natural look. Beauty created from within is achieved through a lifestyle shift and lasting effect through regenerative therapy at the cellular level.”

“We have synergized all our programs with non-invasive aesthetic procedures, integrative medicine, and one-on-one lifestyle coaching; hence, a combination of science, medicine, nature, and personal connection,” she adds.

Vie Great and Live Great!

True to its philosophy and core values, Vietura brings beauty and vigor to life through a combination of science, state-of-the-art medical technology, and natural methods.
