Join Our Team

To scientifically validate our method of perception modification, it requires bright innovative scientists in the mental and medical fields AND people willing to be test subjects.

We are all driven by and often limited by our belief systems, our “programming.”  This is the goal of Adaptive Therapy, to free those that apply it.  You no longer need to conform to the programming you recorded as a result of life’s events, your DNA or how your parent’s raised you.

Participating in our research, you will provide results anonymously, which will then be used to scientifically quantify the data to measure positive results.  Why?  Because this alternative method of applying affirmations needs to enter mainstream to give people a self-help method to safely and for low cost, change belief systems that are detrimental to one’s life.  Body and mind are truly connected.  Our stress, our emotions cause disease and this method, we expect, to be the breakthrough for positive mental attitude leading to a better, more healthy life.
