Wellness Spotlight: The Guyer Institute

Time for Yourself — You Deserve It!

Let’s face it. We all lead crazy busy lives, with jam-packed schedules, demanding careers, and active home lives that ultimately take a toll on our health and appearance. The one thing you never have enough time for is well, you.

At Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, you are our first priority.

Nestled in a serene outdoor healing garden of exotic conifers and soothing waters, Synergy Spa is a world-class medical spa that offers a full range of rejuvenation and skin care services to keep you feeling and looking your best. Under the leadership of Dale Guyer, M.D, and CEO Denise Kaler, Synergy Spa — celebrating its 3rd anniversary in November — is always on the cutting edge to bring you the best, most innovative new treatments.

Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute was the first in Indiana to launch Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection (ALMI or “All Me”) therapy — a revolutionary, all-natural procedure that markedly improves volume, texture, and tone, especially on the face and hands. “ALMI is the most exciting treatment to come to the aesthetic industry since platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy,” says Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa. During the ALMI procedure, a small sample of blood and adipose tissue (fat) are extracted from your body, spun in a centrifuge to isolate regenerative stem cells and growth factors, and then injected into specific area (face, neck, hands). “The beauty of the ALMI stem cell facelift is that a person can turn back the clock in 90 minutes, with no down-time.” says Dr. Guyer.

Synergy Spa is also one of only four locations in Indiana offering Vampire ProceduresVampire FaceLift®, P-Shot®, O-shot®, and Vampire Hair Regrowth® — utilizing PRP therapy. Whether you desire to add natural-looking firmness to your face or breast, minimize scars, stimulate hair restoration, or enhance sexual experience, the non-surgical Vampire procedures could be your answer. These procedures are done by Bridget Williamson, PA-C who has also mastered the science and art of administering all injectables — neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and dermal fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero) — to restore a more youthful look.

            Synergy Spa continues to be a leader in delivering phenomenal results with the addition of CoolAdvantage™, the next generation of CoolSculpting™. CoolAdvantage™ reduces stubborn, unwanted fat in multiple areas of the body — belly, arms, thighs, neck, and under the chin — in less time. “We already knew CoolSculpting®, which is FDA cleared, could change bodies for the better,” says Synergy Spa’s Kaler, “but CoolAdvantage™ refines the possibilities, and allows patients to get the treatment faster and more effectively.” Certified technician Jessica Loesch, who attended CoolSculpting University, uses her extensive technical training to deliver phenomenal results.                        

Licensed aesthetician Jelena Strauser — with training in LA, the Netherlands, Barcelona, and the Czech Republic — brings experience, expertise, and exceptional care to clients at Synergy Spa, which offers a complete menu of aesthetic services — from permanent make-up and facials, to microblading, chemical peels, and much more.

            As you relax and rejuvenate at Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, take advantage of the unique walk-in Vitamin IV therapy, the only place in Indy where you can receive IV Vitamin therapy with no appointment needed, 5 days/week, and leave feeling totally refreshed from the inside out.

            Take time for you at the Synergy Spa – where beauty meets wellness.

Carol the Coach: Practice Saying "I Choose Not To"

Words hold power  .“ So often women speak tentatively about their needs and desires. One of the easiest ways to reinforce your sense of power and capabilities is to choose words that reflect a sense of assuredness. When I talk to women about formulating their goals they tell me that they feel timid about the projected outcome. As a result, they find themselves thinking or saying the phrase “I can’t.” 

The words that you choose help to reinforce your sense of power. Therefore, it is imperative to change your dialogue both externally and internally. Your assignment is to replace the word “can’t” with “I choose not to.”  This too will be a powerful tool in making your life different.  “Getting what you need” requires that you either change or fine-tune your internal dialogue so that you will feel differently about your choices.    I want you to shift your negative dialogue into powerful thoughts.  When people listen to their own internal negative dialogue it keeps them from reaching their goals.  In therapy, we call this “critical thinking” or “the critical parent”.  Your parents were typically well meaning in their attempts to protect you, yet they instilled the “what could go wrong” approach.  Do you remember your parents warning you not to trust people or to stay away from something?  This conditioned you to look at negatives first.  

When you find yourself saying or thinking the word “I can’t”, stop yourself and change the word to, “I choose not to”.  This gives you power.  Let’s look at some typical examples:
•    “I can’t get over him.”  Replace it with “I choose not to get over him.”  
•    “I can’t lose weight.”  Replace it with “I choose not to lose weight right now.”  
•    “I can’t get up early.”  Replace it with “I choose not to get up early today.”
•    “I can’t find time to read or exercise or get away.”  Replace it with “I choose not to find time…”

You may be wondering how the words “I choose not to” empowers.  The word “can’t” infers inadequacy.  “I choose not to” presupposes that you can, but you choose not to today.  The mind is a very powerful tool and your thinking is constantly feeding into your sense of confidence.  When you say that you choose not to then you open up the possibility of saying at a later date “I am ready to get over him, or lose weight, or get up early.
Homework Assignment
Let’s start out with the basics.  For the next month I want you to: 
•    Stop yourself when you hear the word “can’t”.
•    Replace it with “I choose not to”.
•    Notice how different it feels consciously to make the choice not to do it.
•    Tell a girlfriend or co-worker about your assignment so that they can remind you if they hear the terminology “I can’t.”   

By working on this assignment, you will be primed for the next step, which is to figure out how you will accomplish getting up earlier, losing weight, moving on to another relationship or finding time for yourself.  In the months to come, you will be learning how to use thought stopping to bypass your negative thinking and reconstruct your critical thoughts into self-affirming ones.  Your power to change your life comes from changing your thinking and your speech!

Just remember I have never, in my thirty-plus years of psychotherapy, met a client who could not achieve their goals.  I have only met clients who choose not to.
