The tools from “Happy Today?” are based on the latest neurobiological and psychological findings in human learning and action.

The app “Happy Today?” is specialized in working with the placebo effect. This means also that’s highly important to help athletes avoid any kind of nocebo effects in their training.

In addition to rational aspects, emotional and physical elements are also included numerous digital tools to help athletes to train positive expectations every minute in their daily rehab.

The e-learning tools and the app are based on the theory and practice of the Zurich Resource Model (ZRM®) by Dr. Maja Storch and Dr. Frank Krause, the practice-oriented application of somatic markers (body signals) by Professor Antonio Damasio, and the theory of Personality System Interactions (PSI theory) by Professor Dr. Julius Kuhl.
