A comprehensive review of our client's resting and sleep habits is key in restoring our mental and emotional well-being. This wellness pillar is a CBT & psycho-educational program that increases NREM and REM sleep states which elevates good mood and improves work-life performance.Detail
Second wellness pillar provides insight for our client how work/life habits create unhealthy stress that impacts their time, energy and behavior management. A key goal for our clients is learning how to have a healthy work-life integration with the least amount of toxic stress.Read More

"It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it." Lou Holtz
Stress is not "just in your head," the short and long-term effects of unhealthy stress can impact almost every part of your physical body and your cognitive - emotional state. Yet, stress is an essential element of the human body that has allowed our species to survive and thrive, what we call eustress (e.g. the stress we happily go through to build a more fuel efficient car). However, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), stress is the major cause for over 75% of doctor visits, healthcare treatments, relationship strain, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, sick days from work and school, emotional illness, various medical ailments and unhealthy lifestyles. Stress that becomes unhealthy and chronic can cause our physical and mental well-being to become ill (poor health), directly impacting a person's longevity (how short or long is our lifespan) and influencing our overall quality of life and well-being (how well we live each day).
Our integrated lifestyle medicine and positive psychology wellness approach empowers our clients to better understand "what they are with" such as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, family - marriage discord, or a sleep disorder and how that presenting issue is caused by stress and how stress keeps that issue in their lives. This ensures our healthcare approach explores and better understands the root cause of our client's concerns, not just the symptoms. We sincerely believe that when you invest your time with us in Hong Kong or Thailand, you will "gain better insight on who you are and what you are with, accept what are your opportunities and challenges, and remain mindful of your well-being life skills to sustain and enhance your overall wellness." We trust you will find your wellness journey with us affordable, understandable, believable and actionable for a more happier and healthier work - life experience.Read More
