A world-renowned Swiss medical and revitalisation centre marks 75 years this year and looks forward to welcoming guests from the Middle East in this anniversary year, according to owner-president Armin Mattli, who has spent 30 years at the helm of the clinic.
Clinique La Prairie, nestled between the shores of Lake Geneva and the mountains of Montreux, has built a reputation for Swiss excellence in medical care, and a unique anti-ageing treatment, attracting a growing Middle East clientele, including royalty and senior dignitaries.
The clinic opened in 1931 when its founder, Paul Niehans, first administered cellular therapy, which involves injections of a sheep’s foetal liver cells to strengthen the immune system and slow down the signs of ageing. The product became known as CLP Extract, which is used in the clinic’s signature Revitalisation injections today.
The infrastructure at the clinic is equivalent to that of a luxury hotel, with seven rooms and two suites decorated to the highest standards, a healthy yet gastronomic restaurant, interpreters for even the rarest languages, and several other add-ons. Most units are air-conditioned and all open onto balconies overlooking the lake and the Alps.
Services offered by the clinic range from the full Revitalisation package with two CLP Extract injections, to a Relaxation package with massages, reflexology, yoga and body wraps.
