As a health scientist, I have learned not only to take into account the system in which we live, but also the individual itself and the system in which we live, but also the individual himself holistically. In medicine, too, it is important not only to recognize the diagnoses, but also to recognize the person behind them.

My heart beats for holistic health and it is my passion to take care of my own well-being as well as the well-beining of those around me. In a world that presents us with challenges on a daily basis, building mental strength is crucial. By understanding how our brain works and how we can direct it, we gain the ability to better withstand stress and successfully master difficult situations.


Jessica Merkl

Corporate Health
Health Science (B.Sc.)

Mental health and fitness are becoming increasingly important in everyday working life. Neurofeedback can be used, for example, as part of a health day to reduce stress. Through the training, employees can learn to regulate their brain activity independently and thus deal better with stressful situations. I try to spread this possibility among companies and employees and actively support them in the implementation.


Lena Nickles

Partnering and Education
Health Science (B.Sc.)

Due to the increasing demands on our society and the resulting mental stress of the population, as a health scientist I see it as my duty to advocate for alternative and holistic treatment methods. For this reason, I am happy to actively support the brainboost team during my internship and to be able to drive change in this field.

From personal experience, I know how important mental strength is in addition to athletic performance. We should start from a young age and work constantly on ourselves and develop further.
