M2Sentient is a space where sensory therapy and mental wellness meet. Using the 5 Senses to Promote Mental Wellness. Touch, Sight, Hearing, Smell and Taste. 

Sentience refers to the capacity to experience sensations and feelings, to be conscious, and to perceive and respond to stimuli in the environment. It is often used to describe the property of being able to experience sensations such as pleasure, pain, and emotions.

Claudia was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa to German-South African parents and speaks both fluent German and English. 

Claudia has experience in both the fashion, retail and social media field, having been the head of Social Media for M2bio Sciences before stepping into her role as Sensory Therapy Assistant to Jade. 

Having been raised in such a cosmopolitan city surrounded by oceans, mountains and forests has allowed her to appreciate the power of connecting with nature in harmonising and balancing the mind.

Claudia Maschke - Sensory Therapy Asisstant

Sensation: the process by which our brains receive information from our five senses, which the brain can then experience and comprehend.

 

The five senses are the main ways in which we perceive the world around us. Therefore, our sentience has a significant impact on our mental and physical health. Unfortunately, many of us take this extraordinary power for granted. Rather than taking a moment to recognise and appreciate the present, we often find ourselves quickly moving through life seeking the next task or thing. By using our senses, we are able to gather information about our environment, and this information helps us make decisions, form beliefs, and regulate our emotions and behaviors.

 

Our senses have a profound impact on us, both consciously and unconsciously. In order to increase our quality of life and mental wellbeing, we can make better informed decisions about the sensory information we let into our lives by becoming more aware of how our senses affect us.

 

“The senses are the pathways to the soul.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Our goal at M2Sentient is to educate and promote mental wellness through the senses.

Sight

Approximately 80% of all the information we perceive comes through our sense of sight. The human eye can distinguish about 10 million different colors.

Hearing

The average range of human hearing is between 20 Hz and 20,000 Hz. However, as we age, our ability to hear higher frequencies diminishes. Roughly 15% of adults aged 20 to 69 have high-frequency hearing loss due to exposure to loud noises.

Touch

The skin is the largest organ of the human body and contains millions of sensory receptors. It is estimated that the human hand alone has about 17,000 touch receptors. Additionally, our sense of touch can discriminate between different textures with great sensitivity, down to differences of a few micrometers.

Smell

The human nose can distinguish between thousands of different odors. Women generally have a better sense of smell compared to men. It is estimated that women have, on average, 50% more olfactory cells, which are responsible for detecting smells.

Taste

There are five primary tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami (savory). However, recent research suggests the existence of additional tastes, such as fat and metallic. Contrary to popular belief, different regions of the tongue are not exclusively responsible for detecting specific tastes.

Our Partners.

M2bio also supports and is highly engaged in sport, fitness, and entertainment. In collaboration with MMA, the sport is used to educate and inspire the general public on positive health practices and provide athletes with sponsorship opportunities. The M2Bio vision is expansive and they understand the many areas in which health outcomes can be improved. As someone who is seriously passionate about health, psychology, and helping people improve their quality of life, together with my background in the combat sports industry I am very excited and truly honored to be a part of the m2bio team and to help M2Bio Sciences Thailand come to life.” – Jade Sirisompan, Managing Director of M2Bio Sciences Thailand.
