Their appointments are intended to strengthen the group’s research capabilities and drive innovation of Chenot’s unique Health Wellness Method.

Chenot combines Chinese medicine with the latest diagnostics, treatments and technologies to form a holistic view of the whole body as a system.

‘Successful ageing’ by Chenot

Built on the transformative method developed by founder, Henri Chenot, in the 1970s, Chenot has retreats in Switzerland, Azerbaijan, Montenegro and Morocco.

Chenot was one of the first to talk about ‘successful ageing’, believing the answer to a long and healthy life lies in the correct combination of genetics, lifestyle and environment.

Opened in 2020, the 5,000sqm spa at Chenot Palace Weggis is an integrated medical retreat. It offers a range of advanced medical screenings and bespoke treatments.

Facilities include a world class metabolic and sports laboratory, a whole body cryochamber at -110C, an altitude chamber, and a 21m indoor swimming pool.
