Therapy Can Change Lives
1. Emerging from "Digital Depression"
The story of Nikki is a story many face. With the demand to stay constantly-connected, anyone can fall victim to loosing their true-self. Lost in a maze of social media, bombarded by advertisements, or stuck in a pattern of digital isolation: we loose track of our own health and wellness.
Therapy on Demand believes that through the correct use of technology, one can become re-engaged in life through easy access to coaching support alongside evidence-based digital tools and resources for improving well-being.
Nikki started to feel better the moment they started working with Therapy on Demand. By taking the Wellness Survey, they learned their Wellness Score, and a simple breathing meditation to use to manage their symptoms. Although they had some struggles along the way, Therapy on Demand was right by Nikki's side.
Everyone can benefit from improving their health and wellness. By helping clients focus on what is most important, users can refocus on the things like nature, family, and building sustaining happiness for a meaningful life, well-lived.
“I was feeling burnt out. I needed a way to keep track of my health, as a priority. Therapy on Demand was there for me every step of the way.”

2. From "Drugged-up" to "Active and Well"
From Therapy Coaches to Wellness Coaches - all of the Therapy on Demand team emphasize physical activity and movement as a means toward improved health. Regular exercise, apart from keeping your body in good shape, also conditions the muscles and helps to improve blood circulation.
A Penn State University study found that people who exercised, whether it was a mild, moderate or vigorous workout, had more pleasant feelings than those who didn’t. These same people were also happier on days when they were more physically active than usual, meaning that upping the ante on workouts can provide even more of a happiness boost. The takeaway? Engagement with our on-demand coaches can contribute to your long term happiness.
Another experiment used a smart phone app to have participants track their activity, location, and happiness levels throughout the day. It received more than 3 million responses a year — and users were at their second-happiest post-workout.
Further evidence suggests that none of the currently used tranquilizer, pain killer, and narcotic drugs can be used without risking side effects and/or addiction. Many people have contended that physical exercise relieves anxiety, but until recently no experimental evidence has supported this subjective conclusion. Dr. deVries examined this hypothesis by reviewing available data and surveys of expert opinion and controlled psychological and physiological experiments. He found that by varying type, intensity and duration of exercise, a significant tranquilizer effect can be produced. Rhythmic exercise such as walking, jogging, cycling, and bench stepping for 5 to 30 minutes at 30% to 60% of maximum intensity was most effective.
At Therapy on Demand, we believe a varied workout routine is the best. That's why you can visit different coaches from yoga to personal training to find what works best for you. Remember, our helpful support team of trained wellness specialists can work with you to help you better understand your options.
3. Intelligent Wellness Sidekick
Wouldn't it be nice to have a sidekick that cared about your health by your side at all times? One scientific experiment used a smart phone app to have participants track their activity, location and happiness levels throughout the day. It received more than 3 million responses a year — and users were at their second-happiest post-workout.
Would your wellness sidekick find you to be your healthiest after a workout? How about after a nutritious meal?
The Therapy on Demand team knows having a proper diet rich in all nutrients is an absolute prerequisite for a healthy body. Vitamins and minerals in the diet are vital to boost immunity and healthy development; a healthy diet can protect the human body against certain types of diseases, in particular non-communicable diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, some types of cancer and skeletal conditions.
Our team is hard at work developing a wellness mobile app that knows what it takes to motivate all sorts of people toward better health. The best thing is, everything we do is backed by quality clinical research in order to deliver the best outcomes.
Still wondering more about the evidence that supports our approach? Yet another study from the University of California showed that sedentary people would increase their physical activity when engaging with mobile-based intervention, and this change would remain over a long period of time. The investigators found that one of their groups got greater results by just being reminded to access the information and tutorials weekly, and the most probable cause is a higher self-motivation that led them to change their lifestyles (Patrick, 2013). With a higher engagement and motivation, this type of programs is very likely to modify behaviors and have even better results (Hebden, 2014).
