Hi, I’m Alvin Brown, the founder and CEO of The Centre for Healing and Peak Performance. Thank you for visiting our website. I would like to take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself and share with you my vision for why I launched this centre that continues to drive me and my team forward and how we can help you.
If I had to use one word to sum up my vision, it’s ‘curiosity’. I am fascinated with knowing why we do the things we do and how we work. I have spent the past 20 or so years trying to answer those questions.
I truly believe we are more than our physical selves. You can’t separate your physiology from your psychology. I am curious about how we can put everything together – mind, body and soul. For example, if you have a skin condition or a joint problem, it’s not just those physical issues that are to blame. That’s why at The Centre for Healing and Peak Performance, we focus on treating you - the whole person to find out what else is going on in your life that is causing this physical problem. But, we take a holistic approach rather than focusing on treating only one aspect of it. The goal is to help people live at their peak level of health. From this, I developed the integrated peak performance program.
My curiosity was sparked early in life. Growing up, I was interested in and had a talent for sports and dance. But, when I was diagnosed with a rare skin condition, I sought ways to deal with this through health and wellness instead of just creams or other medications to treat that skin condition. I wondered what else could be behind this? I put myself on a strict diet, nutrition and exercise regimen which helped to lessen this condition. A lightbulb went off for me because I realized there were other factors that helped to heal that condition and that I could do more with the knowledge I had gained from this experience in my life. I committed to learning everything I could and went on to earn two university degrees in addition to certifications in a number of health and wellness disciplines including massage therapy, acupuncture and Chinese medicine, personal training and holistic nutrition.
I have also written a book, Journey to Personal Greatness, Mind, Body & Soul: A Blueprint for LIfe Balance & Self-Mastery, which provides readers with their own blueprint for achieving life balance. I use this same philosophy with clients and have trained my team on this integrated peak performance program – connecting the mind, body and soul.
As well, I regularly write for Sweat Equity Magazine, aimed at readers committed to the same ideals I believe in: Healthy living, peak performance and personal greatness.
All this has led me to create a comprehensive health centre that is the embodiment of my vision. Our name symbolizes this connection between ‘healing’ the whole person and restoring balance so a person can achieve his or her ‘peak performance’ in both personal and professional life.
