The tool offers its users services such as individual sessions, group therapeutic rooms, wellness kits and special memberships for families and companies. It is already active in Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, the United States, Peru, Chile and the Caribbean.
“Group rooms are a very innovative alternative for those who want to work on emotional issues together with other people. It is a product that includes 8 group rooms per week where users can learn and obtain tools from all our areas. You can choose the topics that the user is interested in and can participate live or watch it recorded at any time and from anywhere”, adds Sureda.
Another of the star services are the wellness kits that include sessions and classes to work on specific objectives such as parental ties, healthy eating or life purpose, and can be given as gifts. Memberships for families, on the other hand, are presented as an interesting option for family groups where each member has their own user and can work individually or in groups on issues related to parenting, grief, sexuality, anxiety, food or other issues.

“According to various current studies, 80% of workers feel stress at work. Unlike other everyday stressors that can be counteracted by adopting healthy behaviors, chronic stress, left untreated, can have serious health consequences. Among them, anxiety, insomnia, muscle pain, high blood pressure and weakening of the immune system in general. Our platform seeks to provide containment and support spaces for collaborators, so that they find a way out of stress and can feel motivated in their workplaces”, concludes the executive director.
