Synergy helps you find
Your Way to Wellness

Explore. Reconnect. Empower

Many of us spend a lot of time stuck in the past. Or maybe repeatedly attract the same type of situations or people in our lives.

Many of us spend a lot of time in the future. Worrying about what could happen.  Becoming overwhelmed with too many "what ifs"!

Imagine what it would be like to step into the present and feel relief from these stresses.

Joan Small - Synergy For Health

Our body is so wise.

It is the most sensitive recording device that was ever created. It remembers and records all of our experiences, both emotional and physical.

When we get hurt emotionally or physically, it is very good at protecting us.  But an overextension of that strength can create a weakness in the body. And it creates symptoms such as headaches, back pains, weight issues, or anxieties and fears that can even make it hard to get our breath. Often these weaknesses can develop into chronic illnesses. 

So in order to heal we need to look at the whole person, mind, body, spirit and emotions.

Many practitioners effectively work with the body and many instrumentally work with the mind. Fewer know how to integrate the two.

Synergy is very integrative.  It is the simultaneous use of listening touch and verbal dialogue that makes the Synergy Method unique and powerful.

Synergy is based on the Rubenfeld Synergy Method; a somatic approach to a "dynamic integration of the body mind emotions and spirit.®"
She created a safe place for the client to connect her inner and outer self in such a synergistic way. This is what I had been looking for!

Since 2002 I have been a Certified Rubenfeld Synergist and healing the “whole person” is my passion. I aspire to help clients connect with their personal power; to be able to experience less pain and anxiety; to gain more confidence and clarity; and feel the successes of harmonious relationships in their lives.

To add to my passion of personal wellness, I also teach a variety of Wellness topics to businesses in the community and facilitate Laughter Yoga workshops.
I started my career path as a Registered Nurse, followed by 20+ years in a family owned business, along with the amazing opportunity to raise 4 daughters. 

After selling the company, I had a strong desire to return to Health and Wellness.

I felt there had to be a healing modality that encompassed the whole person.

Then I discovered the Rubenfeld Synergy Method. It was a huge “inspiration” for me when I observed Ilana Rubenfeld conduct a session with such skill and compassion.
What Others Are Saying
"My journey into the benefits of Rubenfeld Synergy began on the recommendation from a medical professional.  I was struggling with a long-standing stress-related illness and could not understand why I could not heal my body.  Joan provided a “safety zone” of professional experience, expertise and confidentiality to explore my most difficult personal issues.  Rubenfeld Synergy will be a permanent feature of my personal “tool box” to support me in achieving full potential in life." L.H.
“My husband told me it is so nice to see me more comfortable in my own skin!” V.S.
"Trying something new and having to be vulnerable in the process can feel uncomfortable, though, with Joan the space held from the beginning felt open and compassionate allowing me to speak and feel freely. 

With every session parts of my inner self come back alive helping me feel like me again and for that I am so grateful. Thank you for being you!" C.D.
“Experiencing both talk and touch at the same time allows me to understand so much faster than just talking.” C.O.
"The benefits of working with Joan have been most remarkable.  The emotional aspect of intense grief and loss had become unbearable.  I was emotionally toxic!!  And all that stored in my body.  I had become disconnected with my body. 

After a few weeks of therapy, I now sleep through the night, something I haven’t done in 20 years.  Tensions and fears are disappearing.  I am learning to listen and to understand my body.  This has been a gift to me." G.P.
“You get it! You hear me; this is THE place that I feel safe.” J.L.
"It's very unique how you let us guide you in a session, how you listen to what we say we're feeling, then you literally take that feeling & move it on an energy level.

I don't know of anyone else that does what you do. You are very easy to talk to & non-judgmental." L.L.
