Activate self-healing powers: The Chenot Method makes it possible
At the Chenot Palace Weggis in Switzerland, body and mind are brought into harmony.
19 July 2021
Only in 2020 did the newest Chenot Health Wellness Retreat open in the venerable Belle Époquehouse "Park Weggis" on Lake Lucerne. Here, the most modern applications blend into a traditional setting and are emblematic of the Chenot Method.
This was developed by Henri Chenot and made famous in 1974 when he opened his first centre in Cannes. Preventive health care, based on the idea that a certain lifestyle causes toxins to accumulate in the body, causing degenerative diseases, was a novelty at the time - with Chenot integrating many principles of traditional Chinese healing. Today this is referred to as "alternative medicine", at that time it was virtually unknown in Europe.
"To stay in good health, you must live in harmony with yourself" is the guiding principle of Henri Chenot. In order to achieve this state, the Chenot Method® activates self-healing powers. These strengthen the defense mechanisms and, as a result, prevent illnesses - an approach that is more in demand today than ever before! Strengthening the immune system, but also reducing chronic stress, is one of the standard wishes of guests and is offered in tailor-made programmes. Detoxing, to regenerate body and mind and gain new vitality, is another pillar. Because, today health does not only mean the absence of illness, but also a surplus in vitality and energy. This includes a special (mostly vegetarian) diet that is personalized and consistently followed through - including afternoon tea!
You quickly notice: The house is not a hotel with wellness offers, it is a health philosophy in hotel form, which performs seamlessly. The best example is the sleep technology. Based on scientific research results, in four rooms, this was optimised in such a way that longer deep sleep phases are achieved during the night. It includes natural sounds and daylight when waking up.
