With an extensive array of effective and science-based technology, including equipment used by NASA, Chenot Palace Weggis, is at the forefront of the wellness industry.
With a fully integrated, science-based approach to health and wellbeing, when a guest checks into Chenot Palace Weggis, a medical screening and state-of-the-art diagnostic is carried out to determine which of the programmes is right for the guest. Through the use of Chenot Lifestyle Biomarkers® the Chenot medical professionals will tailor each programme to the guest’s exact needs.
Technological diagnostics and treatments at Chenot Palace Weggis include:
- Bone Density DXA Scan
This technology involves a low- dose of ionising radiation for measuring bone mineral density. It is most often performed on the lower spine and hips and it is considered today’s gold standard to diagnose bone loss and osteoporosis and assess an individual’s risk for developing fractures.
- Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging
Medical DITI is a non-invasive, radiation-free diagnostic technique that allows the examiner to visualize and quantify the subjective feeling of a number of health conditions and soft tissue physical injuries through a graphical display of changes of the skin surface temperature. This visual image graphically maps the body temperature, and the spectrum of colours indicates an increase or decrease in the amount of infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface. Since there is a high degree of thermal symmetry in the normal body, subtle abnormal temperature asymmetry’s can be easily identified. This visual image has important applications in the pathology of the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems and as such can contribute to the pathogenesis and diagnosis made by the doctor.
- Bio-energetic check-up
This involves a state-of-the art hi-tech bio-energetic screening of the body’s vital functions through Resonance Analysis Technology. It provides information about the energetic state of the internal organs and body functions in relation to defined parameters of health. Gaining insight and information into the guest’s needs, an effective personalised treatment plan is prescribed to restore the energy balance of the body.
- Hypoxic Exercise Training in an Altitude Room
Exercising in hypoxia in a chamber improves the body’s aerobic metabolism allowing for more efficient use of oxygen for energy production, improve endurance, speed, power and fitness levels and optimise metabolism for weight loss.
- Anti-Gravity Exercise Training
This equipment acts as both a wellness and rehabilitation tool that unweighs comfortably the person by reducing his body weight. It allows to exercise with less pain and to achieve greater metabolic stimulation while reducing the risk of injury. It is used for weight loss programmes, strengthening and conditioning in a fall-safe environment, brain stimulation and for physical therapy following an injury or surgery on a lower extremity.
- Intermittent Vacuum Therapy
This applies negative pressure (vacuum) and positive pressure to the lower extremities. This physiologically causes the rhythmic vascular dilation and compression and naturally provokes a flow in a purely physical way that improves blood circulation and lymphatic reflux.
- Neuro-Acoustic Deep Relaxation Treatment
A neuroscience technology that present the brain with the chemistry, signalling and patterns that the brain typically interprets as triggers to deep relaxation and recovery. It uses neurochemistry and auditory signals to take the autonomic nervous system out of fight or flight mode and put it into parasympathetic system dominance that brings deep relaxation and calmness into the body.
