CHECK-UPS AND ANALYSES
The treatment regime is constantly monitored by the medical team at Espace Chenot, who make a careful assessment of the state of health of each guest on arrival, which involves the following:
Assessment of the degree of toxicemia
A questionnaire and a specific medical examination determine the degree of intoxination of the body, the main cause of overweight and numerous other disorders and diseases.
Assessment of body composition
The subject’s physical structure is examined in terms of lean and fat body mass, body water and basal metabolism, allowing the team to develop a personal diet regime to follow after treatment.
Specific instruments are used to determine the efficiency of the body’s vital functions and energy flows along the channels which, according to the principles of Chinese medicine, traverse the body.
