Hi I'm Tom!
I'm the founder of NeuroArkitect, a company focused on personal growth, health and wellness, life coaching and spiritual development.
I've chosen (and can certainly say that life has also helped choose FOR me) to dedicate myself wholly to helping others truly learn to optimize their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health by learning to self regulate: to regulate their nervous systems, create emotional balance, resilience, flexibility, and live with true freedom and joy.
A healthy, strong body that can focus on growth, healing, and repair requires a healthy nervous system. As does a healthy mind and spirit.
Given that most illness and disease is related to chronic stress, unaddressed trauma and emotional pain, inflammation, poor habits, lifestyles, and a disruption in the body’s natural rhythms, unless these are addressed, you can't live your most optimal life.
I'm taking the past 12 years of my life, everything I've learned, and continue to learn (eternal student and geek I am) and combining it to create a process I call NeuroPhysio Engineering, using the mind and body to heal, grow, and create the health and life YOU'RE looking to create.
Together we're going to support your nervous system, create greater emotional balance, and address lifestyle, nutrition, fitness, sleep, movement, hydration, limiting thoughts and beliefs, and all other things health related.
Your dreams, goals and aspirations. Your social relationships. Careers.
We'll lay down the foundations for physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and energetic balance and flow.
And we'll recreate the architecture of mind and body and lay a blueprint for more optimal ways of thinking, feeling, and most importantly, being.
It’s all about optimizing our environment (internal and external) to facilitate the greatest degree of health and performance possible using the mind, body, and breath.
I’m pulling on all my experience working with and as a:
- Fitness Instructor
- Certified Nutrition and Holistic Lifestyle Coach
- Self-Proclaimed Biohacker
- Neurofeedback Technician With Training in Integrative Medicine for Mental Health and Additional Training in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
- Mindfulness Instructor
- Breathwork Practitioner
- With Training From the HeartMath Institute, Hakomi Institute, Neuro Meditation Institute, CHEK Institute, Access Bars, the Eden Method and many additional modalities, methods, and techniques
But how and why did this all start?
My own dark night of the soul.
My health journey, and that of my family’s, has led me down many paths towards achieving health and wellness, towards balance and integration of mind, body, and spirit.
I didn’t simply learn and study these things for the sake of it… it was a necessity. Arthritis, obesity, diabetes, anxiety, depression, suicide, schizophrenia, cancer, ADD/ADHD, eating disorders, and all manner of chronic health disorders. These, and so much more, have touched my life and those of loved ones.
A 6-ft male, when my health was at its worst, I weighed in at 118 lbs. with deteriorating kidney and liver functions alongside gastrointestinal issues and hormonal imbalances; depression, burnout, body dysmorphia, and an eating disorder. I had addictive tendencies, a lifetime of compulsive perfectionism, and a complete lack of self-worth.
I exercised 7 days a week without rest. I fasted multiple times a week. Weighed all my food.
All for the sake of "health."
There was a complete and total lack of connection between myself, my body, and total lack of balance in my life driven by unconscious wounds, pain, and trauma.
Finally, my body gave in and shut down, prompting a journey of deep self-reflection, discovery, healing of the mind, spirit, and physical body.
Safe to say, my 20s were a rough time. Much of what I’ve learned and experimented with over the years, following this completely dark night of the soul, was to both help myself and my family in bringing the body and mind back into alignment.
After many rounds of going to doctors, getting bloodwork, running many tests… with no answers or help (the final doctor I visited was a gastrointestinal specialist whose solution was that I simply work on bringing my weight back up by eating cheeseburgers and milkshakes every night!), I really had no choice but to take my life into my own hands.
And, this now is what I teach and do.
Once we lay the groundwork (addressing diet, movement, sleep), lower stress and inflammation, work on the mind, address subconscious patterns, and create new sustainable lifestyle changes, my aim is to provide you the tools and knowledge you need to live your greatest life. Full of meaning, passion, joy, and vibrant vitality.
95% of our lives is determined by our subconscious programming. If your life isn’t how you want it to be, it’s not your fault.
It is, however, your responsibility to create awareness and change that.
But not alone.
