How many hotels can say they have a neuroscientist in residence? Perhaps not unsurprisingly, it’s just the one – the Corinthia Hotel London.
The hotel has recently welcomed a neuroscientist, Dr Tara Swart, for a year long residency. Dr Swart will spend her time at the hotel researching the mental resilience of people in various business sectors. She will monitor both staff and guests at the hotel to analyse how they manage stress.
Dr Swart is a leadership coach and Senior Lecturer at MIT. As well as having a PhD in neuroscience, she also has a career as a psychiatrist.
She has been an advisor to leaders of some of the world’s most successful companies, helping them to reach peak brain performance. Her study will consist of advisory sessions and in-depth studies for individuals. At the end of her residency, she will publish a Brain Power Mental Resilience Study.
The new residency is accompanied by some special hotel packages, as well as some brain food menus. The packages will be available between November 2016 and December 2017. There is a residential package, a spa package, and dining experiences. If you stay at the hotel, you’ll get a Superior King Room for a good night’s sleep, dinner and breakfast from the Brain Power menu, a two-hour mindful massage and yoga session, plus access to the ESPA Life gym and spa facilities.
If you prefer the spa package, you get a two-hour Brain Power Ritual, lunch from the Brain Power menu and unlimited access to the facilities.
ESPA Life includes a Thermal Floor, plus unique Sleep Pods so you can have a power nap during your day at the spa.
On the Brain Power menu, you can discover brain-boosting foods, from raw kale salad to walnut-crusted baked mackerel. You can enjoy menus for The Northall, the hotel’s spa lounge, and in-room dining. You can also go to Bassoon Bar for brain power mocktails, which are sure to be ideal for a booze-free January, as well as boosting your brain.
Head to Corinthia Hotel London to focus on you and your brain, and to learn more about their new Neuroscientist in Residency programme.
