We believe that biology is the missing ingredient to sustainable personal growth.
Recess Labs Inc is a remote-first neurotechnology company . Founded by a collective of idealistic global experts in psychology, neuroscience and technology.
Kelz, Lisanne and Matt all had similar stories! High achievers with an insatiable desire to be their best self! Like so many they read all personal development books, listened to the latest podcasts, had therapy or coaching.
Life long learners, with a lot of knowledge. But yet there was still something missing.... They all seem to grow but at some point hit a brick wall....
This wall is our actual biology! After thorough scientific research, the team learnt one important fact .... without regulating the nervous system you will inevitably hit what we call the personal growth wall.
Our journey started as a commitment to make it quick and easy for anyone to re-wire their brain and nervous system with nothing more than a cell phone in the comfort of their home. Just like us we want you to join us in breaking through your own walls.
