Optimum health

Chenot Palace Weggis, Switzerland’s luxury wellness retreat, has announced the debut of The Chenot Molecular Lab for Optimal Living. This is a revolutionary new approach designed to combat pre-mature ageing at the molecular level. The Chenot Molecular Lab for Optimal Living utilises ground-breaking epigenetic technology to analyse gene activity. This also determines the biological ageing status and prescribe a personalized treatment plan.

“At Chenot, our focus is not on lifespan, but rather healthspan. It is the concept of remaining healthy for as long as possible as we age,” said Dr George Gaitanos, Chief Operating and Scientific Officer of Chenot. “The Chenot Molecular Lab for Optimal Living was born from our desire to empower guests to make meaningful changes that secure their optimal health. Our epigenetic profile is the most precise barometer of our future health.

The Chenot Molecular Lab for Optimal Living uses novel mRNA-based molecular tests. These analyse the expression levels of certain genes associated with silent inflammation, oxidative stress, hormonal imbalance and the structural integrity of connective tissue and ageing.

Through a simple blood test performed at Chenot’s state-of-the-art molecular laboratory, the Medical Team conducts a comprehensive gene expression analysis. This determines an individual’s genes activity and is an invaluable predictor of health and susceptibility to disease. This highly precise and reliable epigenetic profile identifies undesirable gene activity. It also pinpoints the root cause of current or oncoming health issues years before their onset.

Equipped with an accurate picture of an individual’s gene activity, the Chenot Medical Team creates an individualized treatment plan to target and build resilience against the potential onset of maladaptive symptoms. This innovative approach to health and wellness empowers individuals to take preventative measures. This then leads to recommended lifestyle changes that are proven to slow biological ageing on an individual basis. 

Based in Switzerland, The Chenot Group has developed medical spa programmes, treatments, cosmetic products, and food supplements that promote healthy living, wellness, and successful ageing for over 50 years. For more information on the Chenot Molecular Lab  or The Chenot Group, please visit
