The internationally renowned “Chenot Method” has finally arrived in Switzerland. In summer 2020 Chenot Palace Weggis has opened its doors on the shores of beautiful lake Lucerne. A holistic and luxurious wellness retreat based on years of research, combining the best practices of Western and Chinese medicine and cutting-edge technology of the future.

The Chenot Method

The Chenot Method’s aim is to unlock your true potential by detoxing and re-energizing your body, mind and spirit, for you to perform as the best version of your self. “The Chenot Method® is a powerful, effective and personalized array of protocols, treatments and diet plans developed by team of experts in almost fifty years of research and professional experience. The Chenot Method® activates the body’s almost endless ability and power to heal itself, to strengthen its defence mechanism and prevent disease. It renews and rejuvenates the body and mind, for a life full of wellness and vitality. The Chenot Method® combines the principles of traditional Chinese healing with the latest scientific advances in Western medicine. It is unique in its application in that, it integrates and transmits energetic, physical and emotional signals to the body. The body, in turn, responds by building up its own internal medicine and by regaining energy, functional capacity, inner harmony and preserves them over a long period of time.” explains Chenot Method’s founder, the late Henri Chenot.

My Chenot Journey

That our health is the greatest luxury we have, I already knew, when I started my detox week and energizing program at Chenot Palace Weggis. But what I’ve learned during my Chenot journey is, to re-descover myself from an energetic perspective. It’s actually not our health, but our energy which is the greater and most important luxury of life – because that determines everything we do, think, and who we are – and ultimately how our lives evolve.

Our energy batteries have to be full and regularly re-charged in order for us to function, to thrive and to be well, no matter the circumstances. This is a holistic process, that involves our mind, our body and our soul. All these have to be in harmony for us to live a happy, healthy and successful life.

It is very special, what aha-moments you encounter during your week with Chenot, by going through several processes of introspection, seeing situations and yourself from different perspectives and letting your body and mind detach from the everyday pressure and stress. Realizing what is giving you positive energy in life and what is draining it, how to re-direct and protect your energy. How to re-charge.

A combination of treatments (such as bio-energetic massages, binaural hypnosis, cryotherapy at -110°C, laser acupunctures, infrared cabins, mud wraps and hydrojet baths) wisdom, well-being and energy, which is simply unique and brings out the best in you, and leaves a lasting change in your thinking, habits and lifestyle. You’ll leave with knowing yourself – better.

The View

Clear views are not only important as an outlook on life in order to be successful and happy, but also for our well-being in general.

This is a beautiful symbolic aspect that Chenot Palace Weggis implements into its picturesque design, architecture and location. Its rooms, suites, the spa as well as restaurant and gardens are overlooking the beautiful Lake Lucerne and the Swiss Alps. Its treatment rooms offer a beautiful view into the resorts zen gardens.

The Programmes

The body has an amazing ability to improve its functionality and performance at any age, mentally and physically, when provided with the right amount and type of healthy signals. These 3 amazing programs can be booked at Chenot Palace Weggis and upon arrival customized to your individual needs together with your doctor The treatments are designed for a one-week stay.

Advanced Detox: Unleash the self-healing power of your body

This is the pillar programme of Henri Chenot and it aims to induce a deep purification and detoxification of the body. It supports the natural processes to excrete metabolic waste and toxins, to repair defective tissues and to restore hormonal balance. The programme includes medical consultations, advanced diagnostic tests, a low-calorie plant-based nutritional plan and targeted treatments. Working in synergy, effective detoxifying action is achieved. The treatments and the diet are carried out under strict medical supervision.

Recover & Energise: Relax your brain & Revitalise your body

This programme aims to reduce stress, recharge the body’s all-natural energy and restore its vitality. Starting from the pillar detox treatments of Henri Chenot, the programme is enriched with specialised clinically-proven and patented neuroscience technology. This technology provides stress relief and energises the deeper structures of the body. As a result, the body restores its natural rhythms, reduces chronic stress, improves restorative sleep and mood, regains optimal energy levels and achieves full potential and overall wellness. This one-week programme is beneficial to those who are constantly bombarded by various life-stressors, feeling fatigued from a demanding daily life.

Prevention & Ageing Well: Self-optimization always begins in the future

This programme aims to strengthen the body and improve its resilience to lifestyle challenges with a proactive approach and not from the reactive perspective of today’s standards and metrics of “sickness and repair”. The programme is built on the pillar detox treatments of Henri Chenot and thereafter is customised with the addition of clinically-proven treatments, that strengthen the body’s internal medicine, promote healing and support the tissues and organ systems in the long run. This one-week programme is designed for health-conscious individuals who want to maintain a healthy and physically active lifestyle at any given age.

The Diet

The Chenot diet plan is one of the integral components of the Chenot Method®. The (mostly plant-based) diet has been carefully designed to work in synergy with the other medical treatments to support the detoxification, stimulation and reset of the body


Chenot has incorporated a significant amount of scientific research into the formulated diet; from the selection, processing and cooking techniques of the foods, to creating unique detox recipes that combine a variety of the finest ingredients without compromising taste, flavour and presentation. The low-density calories, acidity, low temperatures and moisture are all taken into significant consideration.

(And for the detox insiders, let me tell you the best thing about the diet: you do not suffer from sugar cravings or hunger, as you would during a regular detox. Chenot Palace incorporates just the right amount of calories and fruits (natural fruit sugar) to avoid that typical detox-headache and cravings at day 3 or 4 of a detox week.)

A Personal Note On Well-Being

I feel like 2021 is the year in which more and more people will realize that well-being and “me-time” are not just once-in-a-while luxuries to spoil themselves, but necessary habits to incorporate into their lives regularly. The old fashioned way of hustling for success and working to exhaustion with a side of being busy and distracted –  will be replaced by taking care of our energy and health first, which leads us to work smoother by making decisions and taking actions from a healthier more focused place. The pandemic and the challenges of 2020 have shown many of us what truly matters and how life and business can still go on without extensive traveling and superficial business. Quality over quantity. The same goes for our health – and our energy. My stay at Chenot Palace in November 2020 was the perfect timing to learning and experiencing an upgrade to everything I knew about well-being. Thank you! I can highly recommend a stay to everyone reading this! And I will come back for sure too.
