Our Mission


Reform labor conditions, Health management, Stress check system ... In recent years, the problem of health and stress of organization members has been linked with productivity, becoming a management element indispensable for the development of enterprises. It is said that stress is the source of all kinds of sickness in Japan. And, People's way of thinking becomes negative, critical, passive, and it decreases members' motivation and productivity when stress is high.


However, stress is an issue that heavily involves individual personality tendencies. Therefore, various experts and human support such as doctors, counselors, coaches, mentors, and advisors were indispensable for solving. However, there is a limit in human support by person-to-person. How can we deal with systematic problem-solving?


We combine brain science counseling and therapy technology with IT to provide solutions that enhance the ability of organization members to help themselves. The self-mental training system MOODSWITCH, which we have collaborated with the University of Tsukuba, is a self-training tool. Training such as awareness of the cause of stress problems, stress relief, stress tolerance improvement, personality and behavior change etc. can be carried out in "self", which was previously difficult with expert assistance. The training program using MOODSWITCH aims to increase the ability to help myself against the stress of organization members, to revitalize human resources and organizations, and to improve productivity.

Training Tool

We provide a mental training system "MOODSWITCH" that can self-conduct "stress care", "stress tolerance improvement", "communication", "personality and behavior change" based on brain science counseling and therapy technology. We are researching and developing this in collaboration with the University of Tsukuba. MOODSWITCH is provided through the network as a cloud service. Three types of applications, WEB, VR, and Chat Bot, are offered to users according to the purpose and environment of use.

It lets users do self-training for reducing stress and improving stress tolerance which is able to access anytime and anywhere they would like to do.

This is an app for doing self-therapy with using the technology of Virtual Reality. It has the highest beneficial effect of reducing stress with using an immersive video that maximizes the effect of image functions. It is able to be joined users with low-cost VR headsets that are able to be attached to smartphones.

Chat Bot app using AI

CareBot is an app that induces self-therapy with AI Chatbot that is able to use the LINE app. A virtual therapist that is on the LINE indicates the time when users need to do self-therapy automatically without they operate app proactively or consciously. This is a useful app for users who do not have enough motivation for this app or the situations when a large number of people use it at the same time.

We analyze possible problems within the organization and propose solutions for organizational productivity improvement, team management improvement, mental health environment improvement, etc. based on the psychology and stress characteristics of the organization members.
