A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Health

A New Start, A New You

The health team at Synergy Medical &  Weight Loss Centre offer comprehensive lifestyle modification assistance for sustainable weight loss and maintenance.

Our business evolved after evaluation of clients from various health professionals showed many needed an extra level of service when it came to their diet, mental health and physical activity.  A multi-disciplinary approach to weight loss has been scientifically shown to be the most effective way to not only lose weight but keep it off for the long term.

Our goal as health practitioners is to see people living happy and healthy lives well into their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and beyond. Being a weight that’s healthy for you will help lower your risk of lifestyle-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer – and importantly, helps you to feel your best and live life to the full. A major key to achieving this is through support, education and knowledge.

The team at Synergy are comprised of Accredited Practising Dietitians, Psychologists and Personal Trainers; AKA your Healthy Lifestyle Practitioners.  We can also work closely with your GP, surgeon and specialists for full medical support.

With the support, knowledge and guidance from a highly experienced multi-disciplinary health team you can be assured of the best possible chance of success and finally getting off the round-about of yo-yo dieting.
