Chenot’s new service assesses premature ageing

The Chenot Molecular Lab for Optimal Living is a new programme developed to help resolve issues associated with premature ageing.

Available as an additional service to Chenot’s classic Detox retreats, participants are given blood tests that yield results based on novel mRNA-based molecular testing, using epigenetic technology to analyse gene activity and determine biological ageing status.

These tests then enable scientists to analyse the expression levels of certain genes associated with silent inflammation, oxidative stress, hormonal imbalance and the structural integrity of connective tissue.

Results are used to prescribe personalised interventions via the prescription of supplements and the creation of a lifestyle-based treatment plan designed to build resilience and maintain wellbeing.

• Location: Chenot Palace Weggis, Switzerland
• Duration: One hour
• Price: 1,500 CHF (€1,423, US$1,630, £1,215)

Silvotherapy promotes healing through touching trees / photo: shutterstock/Jinga

Grand Hotel Tremezzo has introduced a new retreat to demonstrate how guests can harness nature to boost wellbeing.

The experience is anchored by 45-minutes of silvotherapy – a practice using nature to heal the mind and body that traditionally includes touching, stroking, leaning on or hugging trees.

During the session, a therapist leads guests through breathing and visualisation techniques to help them release anxieties, while they make direct contact with trees in private gardens. It’s believed this process of physically reconnecting with nature helps guests reap healing mental and physical health benefits.

The offering is completed with a two-hour mindfulness ritual and a light, healthy breakfast.

• Location: Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Tremezzina, Italy
• Duration: Three hours
• Cost: €500 (US$578, £424)
