Some travelers will go to any length for the type of rest and relaxation that makes them feel 10 years younger.
But for those with limited time to do so, a new program from La Réserve Genève Hotel and Spa in Switzerland promises a rejuvenating experience in seven days or less.
La Réserve, which describes itself as a "cleverly concealed reserve of happiness" on Lake Geneva, is now offering a new spa program developed and supervised by Nescens, a company that specializes in anti-aging products and programs, designed with the help of specialists at Genolier, one of Switzerland's largest networks of medical clinics.
The four- or seven-day programs begin with a full medical assessment, including a blood test and other queries into diet, lifestyle and exercise.
The result is a custom treatment program for each guest, created and supervised by a Nescens team, including osteopaths, dieticians, doctors to advise on anti-aging medications, and fitness and lifestyle coaches.
Next comes the best part: the actual treatments, which can include massages, body contouring (a massage performed by an osteopath that focuses on knees, ankles and shoulders), therapeutic baths, wraps, scrubs and three organic meals a day.
Most treatments take place in the spa's 22,000-square-foot facility and are available to locals and hotel guests at a price of 3,200 Swiss francs (about $3,750) for the four-day program and 4,900 francs ($5,740) for seven days, not including accommodations. Average room rates at the hotel start at 445 francs ($520), double occupancy.
Extra days can be added for those who might want to try to erase a bit more of their past.
