85 years of leadership

Pioneer in the field of longevity

The secret of how to live a longer, healthier and fuller life may be a mystery to many, but not to us.

Since Dr.Paul Niehans developed a cellular therapy with spectacular results to slow down the aging process, Clinique La Prairie has been a pioneer in the field of longevity. The focus on preventative medicine lies at the foundation of the clinic: by nurturing aging cells, the natural protective system is enhanced and becomes better equipped to manage diseases or injuries. Longevity is the promise of our signature Revitalisation program, and unequivocally of all health, well-being and beauty programs that have been carefully crafted for our guests.

Today, Clinique La Prairie's assembly of experts is essential to this achievement. Day 1 of all our programs is devoted to a medical consultation and a variety of tests that will enable our doctors and specialists to analyze what’s going wrong and create a personalized program. Medical care and Wellness are the cornerstones of health: they work together to build our bodies from our cells up. Throughout the stay, the SPA therapies contribute to renewing energy and body. Eventually, tests, doctors’ advice and well-being learning become the blueprints for our guests’ lives.

Since 1931, our exclusive clientele has come to Montreux to experience this pioneering fusion of science and holistic wellness, combined with luxury Swiss hospitality.
