How our story began

Our philosophy originates from Dr. Aki Hintsa. As a missionary doctor in Africa to working with Olympic athletes and Formula 1, he found two things. That performance is built on a foundation of wellbeing. And that wellbeing is holistic. Two decades later, his methods continue to inspire leaders in sports and business to great achievement.
