For centuries, people have been obsessed with ways to keep their bodies from aging and appearing to look old. As 2010 begins, seekers of the fountain of youth might want to turn their attention to Clinique La Prairie in Montreux for the ultimate youth revitalization experience. Back in 1931, this charming resort town on the shores of Lake Geneva and nestled between the Alps, became the acknowledged centre for anti-aging research that influenced today’s medical advancements in this field. Back then, Clinique La Prairie’s Dr. Paul Niehans made a major breakthrough in cellular therapy using live cell injections in patients to heal their deficient organs and help slow the aging process of their immune system.More than 75 years later, and with a nod from Pope Pius XII in 1953 who made a remarkable recovery after his treatment, patients come to the clinic for the CLP Revitalization Treatment that has a revitalizing effect on normal aging cells. The answer to a total body tune-up, CLP Revitalization Treatment makes patients feel noticeably stronger, with renewed energy levels and a reduction of fatigue, and with more resistance to stress and infection.Patients who come for the week-long CLP Revitalization Program meet with a senior physician before undergoing full diagnostic check-up during first two days, followed by 2 oral doses of CLP cellular Extract. During their stay, patients can speak with the clinic’s medical specialists who cover all medical disciplines. Besides enjoying cordon bleu gourmet diet menus in an elegant restaurant, patients are encouraged to visit the fitness center for a personalized training program and the medical spa facility where à la carte Swiss Perfection face and full body beauty treatments and massages are available.
“There is an exceptionally high level of individual attention that begins when we first meet a patient,” explained Dr. Waelli, Medical Director of the clinic. “We discuss any ailments and objectives before coordinating specialized consultations and tests with our medical staff, then analyze the test results with the patient and prescribe relevant treatments to improve their quality of life,” he concluded.The one week Revitalization treatment includes: -Six nights full board -Medical check-up: laboratory tests, chest X-ray, abdominal ultrasound, electrocardiogram -Dental check-up: full mouth X-rays, complete dental report -Revitalization treatment -Consultation and follow up with attending physician, nurse care, dietician session -One consultation with Beautymed aesthetician -One discovery session with sports coach -Two group fitness sessions -Access to fitness center, swimming pool, hammam, Jacuzzi, sauna. www.laprairie.ch
