A London hotel has appointed world’s first ever ‘neuroscientist in residence’ to help boost and maximise the brain power of the guests.
Corinthia Hotel, located at the heart of London, appointed Dr Tara Swart, a trained doctor, psychiatrist, leadership coach and author, on a one-year term as ‘neuroscientist in residence’ - a global first in the hotel industry, the Telegraph newspaper reported.
This a new offering to the guest in addition to its already available opulence of services a posh hotel can offer.
Courtesy to Dr Swart, the new offering is designed to enhance the workings of the brain of the guests.
“These include black-out blinds and sleep-inducing lavender sprays in the bedroom, mindfulness messages in the ward-winning spa and a ‘brain power menu’ that get the mind moving more effectively,” the London Daily reported in its travel section.
The food in ‘brain power menu’ included something like ‘raw kale salad with beetroot, green tea veal paillard with spinash and cognition-boosting coconut oil.
As a trained neuroscientist, the Telegraph added, Dr Swart has spent more years in extremely successful business leaders to make the most of their mental powers by devising for them relevant exercise, dietary routine and sleep programmes.
But the techniques she has developed for the Corinthia guest have far wider applications, according to the doctor.
“The lifestyle patterns I am promoting are not just for business leaders,” she says. “They can be applied to how you lead your life much more broadly and how you are at home with your family. The aim is to help people maximise their potential both at work and at play.”
During the course of her residency, Dr Swart will also be giving a series of talks, holding one-to-one taster sessions with some of the hotels most highly valued VIP guests, offering specific advice on how to minimise the disruptive effects of travel.
And, perhaps most radically, she will be conducting an in-depth study of the mental resilience of 40 selected members of staff. At the end of the year she will be publishing the findings of her studies.
