Mandala Spa and Resort Villas Boracay Detox Day
Going through detox is an efficient way to put our body back on track to total wellness. It gives our gut a rest from processed food, as well as flushes out toxins and excess fats, in place of liquefied whole foods to fuel our body with nourishing vitamins and minerals.
Detoxing usually takes five days to more, but at Mandala Spa and Resort Villas Boracay (check rates), this can actually be done for one whole day only, even while having fun on the beach.
This world-renowned, multi-awarded and pioneering spa in Boracay offers Detox Programs, including a one-day program wherein holidaymakers have the opportunity to experience the legendary Mandala Spa treatments and fulfill the rest of the program by consuming nutritious organic juices without interrupting their fun holiday on the island.
Mandala Spa’s Detox Day Programs consist of four meticulously planned programs customized for slimming and toning, strength and stamina, beauty and anti-ageing, and facial.
All of these programs involve signature Mandala Spa deep-tissue massages for the stomach and the whole body, yoga, colon irrigation, and liquid drinks from whole organic foods that are free from dairy, wheat and meat.
I actually went through Mandala Spa’s Detox Day Program, specifically the one for Strength and Stability because I wanted to give my digestive system a full cleanse and a boost of rich nutrients, considering my physically active lifestyle and my extended nursing to my five-year old daughter.
So for one whole day, I was committed to the schedule mapped out in the Strength and Stability Cleanse.
This began with a full morning spent inside a beautiful villa tucked within the lush sanctuary of Mandala Spa and Resort Villas.
Inside the villa’s regale interiors, I was led by a lovely therapist to a quaint sitting area by the window where my first couple of beverages were placed. These were a tall glass of lemon water and a fruit smoothie with spirulina to rejuvenate my digestive system.
With my glasses emptied, I went inside the Infrared Sauna to sweat off my toxins. I had an option to take the yoga class too, but since I preferred to sit and relax while sweating, I took the sauna.
Half an hour later, I came out of the sauna completely drenched and renewed.
I then met my therapist at the massage area where I surrendered to a good thirty minutes of her deep and tranquilizing stomach massage amid the calming nature sounds that were playing inside the villa.
With my stomach awakened, it was time to flush out what’s left in my digestive tract through the colema, which is Mandala Spa’s gentle and pleasant approach to colon irrigation, aided by coffee edema.
After the 5 gallons of coffee edema got successfully flushed out through my body, I took a shower and went back to the reception to consume my next set of beverages, which was a shot of fermented coconut vinegar and a delicious probiotic drink to feed my newly cleansed gut with good bacteria.
Soon, I left Mandala Spa with a portable ice cooler filled with my take-out detoxifying juices.
I took a swig of the coconut vinegar and a protein-rich green leafie smoothie an hour and a half later, a nutritiously sweet and filling smoothie after another hour and a half, a soft textured protein-rich smoothie two hours later, and a very filling sweet potato drink after a couple of hours more.
These juices and smoothies satisfied me like no other. They opened me up to stay on track on my detox program, allowing me to observe my food cravings without giving into them.
Actually, the juices did not give me any reason to go hungry, as each one was quite filling for the time interval that was allotted.
So at 630pm, I was back in Mandala Spa and Resort Villas for a two and a half hour treatment, which started with 30 minutes of sauna, an hour and 30 minutes long of the detoxifying Mandala Asian Signature Massage, and a relaxing Floral Bath to close up my pores.
I left Mandala Spa and Resort Villas (check availability) completely rejuvenated, restored and very excited to resume my usual vegetarian diet, which is a mix of solids and liquids.
Having undergone Mandala Spa’s Detox Programs thrice fruitfully, I can truly attest that people coming to Boracay should definitely take advantage of this one day detox program as a true and lasting treat for their mind body and soul.
