Spa Dominique Chenot, Barvikha Hotel & Spa, Moscow
Written by Oryx
Located within a luxury village in the Moscow region, Barvikha Hotel & Spa is home to the exclusive Spa Dominique Chenot, offering a holistic and bespoke approach to wellbeing.
Dominique and Henri Chenot are cult icons in the world of holistic healing and anti-ageing research. For more than four decades, Dr Henri Chenot has undertaken in-depth research into the factors behind ageing, and he was the first scholar to mention the impact that stress, pollution, and unbalanced eating can have on health and good looks, while his wife Dominique is a professor of aesthetics.
Spa Dominique Chenot uses the method invented by Dr Chenot, combining cutting-edge European science with ancient traditions of Chinese medicine.
Every spa client begins their visit with a bioenergy test and a health evaluation. Based on the results, they are given a personalised healthcare programme aimed at improving general wellbeing and restoring psycho-physical health, which includes Dr Chenot’s hydroenergetic, aesthetic, and bioenergetic treatments such as balneotherapy, Caracalla baths with chromo- and aromatherapy, bioenergy massage, modelling massage, or tonic massage, all using Henri Chenot products.
The spa restaurant provides a nutritional menu using fresh organic produce and, using Dr Chenot’s methods combined with the spa diet principles by Dominique Chenot, problems such as extra weight, stress, and premature ageing can be addressed in wellness programmes and spa packages from one to seven days.
