Visit & Learn About The Latest Rejuvenation Treatments At Our Garden Party on June 1

It’s time for a garden party, a chance to get to know Dale Guyer, MD, our founder, physician…and master gardener! The event will be catered, with delicious hors d’oeuvres and wine for our guests. And of course, our staff, as well, will be there to mingle with.

Mark your calendars for June 1, a Thursday evening…starting at 5:30 p.m., going until 8. The healing garden welcomes you!

The garden at The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa is a place of serenity, warmth, and sharing. That evening the 1st, patients and their guests will share stories, experiences, and laughter. Hopes, obstacles, and dreams in a quiet corner, perhaps.

And, of course: you’ll be able to ask questions, learn about what we’re doing these days in with our rejuvenation treatments to help you be healthier, look better, relax more, reach excellence.

For example, we’ll be happy to tell you about the new ALMI stem cell procedures for skin rejuvenation. The Synergy Spa is the first and only facility in Indiana to be selected, approved and now offering the procedure.

The all-natural injections use your own cells and tissues to restore a more youthful appearance to many parts of your body.

“This advanced rejuvenation treatment is drawing raves,” says Denise Kaler, CEO of the Synergy Spa. “The radiant results we see occur again and again, all in just 90 minutes.”

The healing garden is not just for information and special events, either. For years, patients have spent time in the garden before and after procedures. It is meditative for many, a location to take some deep breaths and let some stress release.

“It is great to see patients – current and former – in such an comfortable setting,” Dr. Guyer says. “Here, meaningful conversation matters.”

Dr. Guyer happens to love conifers. At the garden gathering at the Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, you will see them, enjoy them, and take in their lovely scents.

Our founder spends a lot of time in the garden: it’s a refuge and a respite – and a way to feel nature up close.

What’s more, the healing garden, which is behind the Institute and in front of the Spa, has a beautiful pond and waterfall. It’s really the perfect place to devote an hour or two to good friends, family, and new people you may meet.

“I really encourage women and men who have not visited us to come see us that night,” Dr. Guyer says. “It’s a calm setting to learn about what we offer.

The garden party will also give our team a chance to offer insights and experiences on our lines of the much talked about IS Clinical skin care products.

The Synergy Spa staff will also be pleased to discuss interest in any of the exclusive, rejuvenating Vampire® treatments. They include the facial, facelift, breast lift, hair regrowth procedures, along with the popular Vampire O-Shot® and P-Shot® to help increase sexual desire and satisfaction.

Our event will be informative, informal, fun, and refreshing. We always appreciate your trust, and the opportunity to play a positive role with for patients with our caring, the latest procedures, and our stellar products.

June 1, 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Institute. Can’t wait to see you.

Doing Battle With Serious Digestive Problems

Serious digestion problems are widespread. We have some very beneficial treatments available to help.

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we recognize that Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS) and constipation can be major issues affecting your way of life.

They need focused and knowledgeable attention, often using natural therapies. That’s how your body becomes healthier. They are a weapon used to fight the underlying causes.

“Digestive troubles and the pain and discomfort associated with them are pronounced in 10-15 percent of the population,” says Dale Guyer, M.D, and founder of The Guyer Institute. “We see many patients suffering…who want expertise and treatment.” Enter the integrative approach.

IV Vitamin Therapy is a primary and highly effective approach to battling and reducing the impact of digestive problems. Often, additional magnesium is helpful for patients facing these challenges.

IV Vitamin Therapy allows the ingredients to enter to enter the bloodstream directly. This increases the speed and leads to a better reduction in digestive distress wrought by IBS and constipation.

Magnesium plays a key role in 300 different enzymatic reactions linked to digestive health or the lack of it.

IV Therapy at The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa also typically includes Vitamin C, Vitamin B12 and B Complex. The mix that is right for a given patient’s digestive symptoms can be completely customized.

“I’ve seen amazing results,” Dr. Guyer says. “We hear from patient after patient that they feel better and their lives have improved.”

Specialized oral supplements can also have a strong impact. The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa carries some of the most sought-after supplements. Our team also provides information and counseling on their use.

  • Fiber Pro
  • MagE
  • Choline Citrate
  • Probiotics

Fiber is the indigestible part of plant foods that makes stool soft and thus enables smooth bowel movements. It also prevents occasional constipation, and promotes healthy gastrointestinal (GI) microflora balance.

We carry FiberPro, a natural fiber supplement. It contains a balanced ratio of soluble and insoluble fiber to help with occasional constipation. This allows you to maintain long-term bowel regularity and health.

MagE is a highly absorbent powder which is gentle on the GI tract. It contains Inositol, which maximizes the effects and is also helpful for anxiety.

Choline Citrate helps ensure a more relaxed and elastic GI tract. It assists with detoxification when taken with Vitamin C.

Peppermint EC helps with GI upset, especially cramping. It soothes and relaxes the digestive tract.

Our proprietary probiotic product lines in house and at includeEco-Biotic powder and Ultra Biotic capsules. They are potent and effective for persistent digestive problems. In turn, they assist the intestines in  maintaining the right balance and types of bacteria.

These issues should be treated with care and expertise. IBS and constipation can be debilitating.

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we are ready to make a significant difference for you and your health.

Your Neck Will Love The NeckPerfect Treatment

NeckPerfect by IS Clinical is the perfect product for a vibrant, beautiful neckline.

Three questions to consider, and you’ll know if it’s right for you.

To improve the appearance of your neck, would you like to:

  • Help the skin appear more lifted, tightened and sculpted?
  • Restore firmness and elasticity?
  • Smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles?

If you’re still reading, the answers are yes. Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute is proud to announce that we carry NeckPerfect Complex. It’s a powerful, soothing, regenerative product for the neck, jawline and décollete. It’s been called “revolutionary and age-defying.”

NeckPerfect can dramatically improve skin tone and texture. With continued use, it makes these areas visibly smoother, contoured, and sculpted for a more radiant, youthful appearance.

Synergy Spa of the Guyer Institute is so interested in the benefits of NeckPerfect that we sent two staff members to an IS Clinical Advanced Education Seminar on May 4th.

Grace McDonald and Deanna McAllister of our expert team attended to further their insight and knowledge about the science of NeckPerfect, the extended line of IS products, and the most effective ways to use them.

Grace says, “This was a great experience. I wanted to be able to assess the advantages of NeckPerfect by hearing from the makers. They really illuminated how it works, why it works, and why women and men across the country are raving about it.”

Deanna adds, “I really enjoyed meeting and interacting with so many other peers in my industry. We had informal question and answer sessions that captured the essence of why NeckPerfect works so well, and how best to help our clients benefit from it.”

And here: some of that science behind NeckPerfect at Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute. These components work harmoniously to maximize the health of your skin and boost its appearance.

  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids: lightens dark spots and stimulates cell turnover, restoring your skin back to natural radiance
  • Antioxidants: helps signs of aging fade and stops environmental stressors from doing more damage
  • Hyaluronic Acid: moisturizes and protects your skin
  • Salicylic Acid: fights acne-causing bacteria to help keep your skin clear of blemishes

Specific ingredients that comprise the NeckPerfect success story include: hydrolyzed Rhizobian gum, hydrolyzed rice protein, mixed fruit extracts, sweet almond seed extract, vitamin B5, and white willow bark extract.

At Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, we are constantly working to give our clients the most natural and beneficial products and procedures to invigorate your body and your outlook. NeckPerfect adds to that energy and commitment.

The neck is a difficult place to keep looking young. NeckPerfect is showing the most exciting results out there. Come see us, and we’ll show you.

See How The O-Shot® Can Improve Your Sex Life

The O-Shot® has come to the rescue – right where it’s needed most. It’s part of the popular Vampire® family of treatments.

Let’s face it, ladies: we like orgasms. In turn, we don’t like it when our sexual pleasure or desire is reduced. Often, we cope in relative silence.

But these days at Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, there is something you can do. For patients of all ages and with different underlying causes, the O-Shot® can rejuvenate the cells of the vagina – and other female areas – and lead to increased blood flow.

That stimulation and regeneration – using the PRP approach, which stands for platelet-rich plasma – has been shown time and again to boost sexual fulfillment, and libido. The result: women are more satisfied with their sex lives…and relationships.

At the Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we want to help all our patients reach ideal health and enjoyment. Our highly trained PRP team has been able to deliver the kind of results with the O-Shot® that some women only dream about.

“We have seen women’s interest in sex elevate dramatically after the O-Shot® procedure,” says Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute. “Sexual pleasure is a fundamental part of life, and we want our patients to have every opportunity to enjoy that in a natural, enduring way.”

With the help of topical numbing, the injections are all but painless, and involve little or no downtime, and often lead to better sexual experiences right away.

Research shows that a third or more of women do not experience satisfactory orgasms or any orgasm at all. The O-Shot® can help women who are getting older, who may not have the proper blood flow, or who’ve seen their desire plummet after pregnancy and childbirth.


Overall, the O-Shot® treatment in many cases is able to:

  • increase blood flow
  • improve lubrication
  • strengthen the vaginal opening
  • boost sexual desire
  • heighten sensitivity

At the Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, the O-Shot® has also shown significant progress in helping to decrease urinary incontinence in women.

PRP is the art and science of using a bit of your own blood plasma, with its concentration of platelets and other growth factors. A small vial of blood is taken from a patient and then spun in a centrifuge to separate blood components. The next step: the platelets are retrieved and re-injected into the selected areas of the patient.

At Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, the O-Shot® makes a real and recognizable difference. Many women are fine with only one O-Shot® a year – some need one or two more. It’s time to call us today for a consult, 317-580-1SPA (1772).

No question: the O-Shot® is worth exploring. More enjoyable sex is something we all wish for…and deserve.

Vitamin C Supplements Improve Your Health

Many think the main benefit of supplemental Vitamin C supplements is to help ward off the common cold. But there are other more important benefits that are well-known and established.

Long-term studies and experience show Vitamin C supplements can have significant health advantages in an array of other areas.

The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa offers select Vitamin C supplements in The Supplement Store (, counsels patients on their use, and for years has offered IV Vitamin C Therapy.

“We have provided this therapy to countless patients,” said Dale Guyer, M.D., founder and medical director of the Institute. “The number of ways this nutrient can protect and advance your health is rather amazing. I have seen it work time and again.”

IV Vitamin C Therapy, which can be done over a lunch break, for example, keeps disease-fighting tools primed and operating at high efficiency.

The calibrated mineral infusion we create for our patients is like a secret weapon. The relatively painless and no downtime IV treatment provides supplemental Vitamin C, which bypasses the digestive tract. The effects can take hold faster by achieving elevated levels in the blood.

The list of benefits from this potent antioxidant will surprise you, and help persuade you that supplemental Vitamin C at The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa is smart, effective, and valuable.

They include these 10:

 •     Cardiovascular health advances

•     Enhancing some cancer drugs or reducing growth

•     Decreasing stroke risk

•     Promoting eye health

•     Skin and nail improvements

•     General immunity factors

•     Anti-aging effects

•     Helps regulates sugar levels in diabetics

•     Lower physical impact of stress

•     Aid in digestion and stomach pain

To achieve some of these benefits, Vitamin C oral supplements are often recommended at 500-1000 milligrams a day, and even higher for some patients. There are no scientifically reported side effects of taking supplemental Vitamin C.

Our expert team at The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa carries the products we believe work best and most efficiently. We work with patients to find the right dosage for each individual patient.  

Dr. Guyer points out, though, that “Reaching ideal therapeutic levels through oral supplementation may take a long time.  In that context, IV Vitamin C Therapy can provide a much more helpful and accelerated cellular rejuvenation and response.”

Patients, of course, are encouraged to raise their Vitamin C intake in their diets, as well. The dilemma: most people don’t manage to achieve the amounts necessary to maximize potential health benefits.

Still, the following foods are always strongly advised to be part of your diet: broccoli, cabbage, peas, red peppers, brussel sprouts, kale, cauliflower, cantaloupe, and strawberries.

If you have certain medical conditions – and we will discuss them with you – strong supplemental Vitamin C may not be recommended.

There is just no disputing the concept that supplemental Vitamin C can be a godsend to your health, in oral form or IV Therapy.

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we can get you started on the path to your best health ever, and Vitamin C supplements can be a crucial building block in that journey.

CoolSculpting® Can Make Your Spring Shine

Our CoolSculpting® skills and expertise just got stronger! One of our wonderful technicians at the Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute has returned from Coolsculpting® University.

Grace McDonald has refined her ability to use this extraordinary fat targeting technology to help you look better, feel better, and fit perfectly in your new clothes.

“I am so excited,” Grace said. “I feel equipped to do these CoolSculpting® procedures more creatively, in just the right places at just the right time. I know patients – and their bodies – will respond positively and enthusiastically.”

Providers are not required to send their staff members to these expert training and education programs for CoolSculpting® – or any of the services we offer. The Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute chooses to do that.

“It is a long tradition, said Denise Kaler, CEO of The Synergy Spa. “We are full believers in ongoing training in the latest techniques, as well as having and using the best equipment on the market for our patients.

Grace McDonald

“It is your body and your life. We want to be as prepared and knowledgeable as possible.”

Fat-freezing is not a fad; it is a fact. The FDA-cleared CoolSculpting® procedure we do can lead to an amazing 25% percent less fat on eight areas of the body where unwanted fat often occurs.

They include: your abdomen, thighs, arms, love handles, buttocks, even under your chin around your neck.

Men and women both can have CoolSculpting® done. It is effective and often exhilarating when patients see their improvements.

Here’s how it works: A CoolSculpting® practitioner uses an engineered device with vacuum technology to isolate the bulging. They then apply freezing effects.

Each treatment takes about an hour. There is no downtime afterward.

CoolSculpting® freezes the fat, and within one to three months the affected fat cells can be eliminated through the normal metabolic process.

You can certainly go through the procedure more than once. Our experts will discuss all the options with you.

CoolSculpting® at The Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute does not hurt. There is some increased sensation to temperature. The sensation is a firm but mild pull and pressure: enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled efficiently.

Synergy Spa is a CoolSculpting® certified practice, utilize advanced training protocols to deliver the best possible results. You can see and measure the outcomes.

There is no accompanying dieting involved. The positive results of the procedure, however, typically encourage patients to exercise more and eat better. It is part of improving your overall health and wellness.

For a complimentary consultation, call 317-580-1SPA (1772). It’s time to do what you have long wanted to do in those tough spots. Let us help you!

An Exciting Addition To Skin Care – The Anti-Aging Facial

Our new Anti-Aging Facial helps you wage your own war on wrinkles, and maximize the youthfulness of your skin. The Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute is your top destination for Anti-Aging Facials.

Our expertise, experience, savvy and collaborative effort to treat your skin with anti-aging facials means we have more satisfied clients.

The Anti-Aging Facial is a progressive skincare treatment. It slows the aging process, brightens skin, and reduces wrinkles.

At Synergy Spa, the treatment includes an enzyme peel, an ultrasound peel, extractions, and ultrasound skin-lifts to increase a visible result for smoother and tighter appearing skin.

Jelena Strauser, a licensed aesthetician, performs the procedure with advanced skills, great care, and fantastic focus. “We become partners in the effort to improve the condition and appearance of your skin,” Jelena says.

“It is wonderful to see so many clients more radiant, and radiant about the results of the Anti-Aging Facial, too.”

This special treatment at Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute costs $95,00, and takes about 60 minutes. It is ideal to get one monthly, but we recommend at least four times a year.

Anti-Aging Facials respond to your desire for younger-looking skin. They typically utilize vitamin-infused serums, collagen creams, and rejuvenating facial massage techniques.

They are an outstanding preventative measure in addressing the aging process, and are smart and effective options if you want to avoid surgery and take less invasive steps for your face.

At Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, Anti-Aging Facials are designed to rejuvenate skin through exfoliation, which involves clearing away dead, skin-dulling cells.

We also use high-end moisturizing creams, along with facial massage to improve circulation and muscle health. Together, they serve to smooth and elevate the skin’s texture.

Collagen gives skin its plump appearance – elastin helps it snap back quickly. As we age, our faces naturally get thinner and dryer, and the skin loses collagen. As well, sun exposure and consistent facial expressions can create lines and grooves.

Over time, it takes longer for healthy young cells to move to the top layer of the face. This is called cell turnover. The Anti-Aging Facial stimulates those cells, clears out the pathways for them to emerge, and brings better health to your skin.

Anti-Aging Facials at Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute are especially valuable for women and men in their 40s on up. But it is wise to start in your twenties and thirties, because the skin is already maturing.

Our Anti-Aging Facials include skin analysis and a detailed review with Jelena of how you care, or don’t care properly for your skin.

For afterward and between these advanced Anti-Aging Facials, we carry IS Clinical skin health and treatment products to maintain your skin’s vitality. They include toners, serums, and protective creams.

Our team at Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute also provides additional knowledge and specialized advice on routine home skin care.

Take care of your face, and look as youthful as you can with the Anti-Aging Facial. You and your face deserve it.








Improve Your Health – Hit The HIIT Workout Program

Our team here at The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa seeks to help you achieve the wellness and look you want and need. But there is a special type of physical training called HIIT you could also try. 

HITT, which stands for high intensity interval training, can make a real difference in your ability to burn fat and calories. In turn, you will improve your heart health and overall endurance.

HITT takes less time with as much or more benefit than a typical steady hour of cardio.

With this program, for example, you could run hard for one minute, and walk for two or three. And keep doing those intervals for 15 or 20 minutes – or longer.

The faster, more taxing part of the HITT workout gets your body into an anaerobic zone. Anaerobic literally means “without oxygen.” The anaerobic energy system is what provides energy in all out efforts of up to 1 minute. 

For the first 10-15 seconds, the phosphate pool is used up. After that, glucose breakdown and lactic acid are involved naturally in the effort. That’s where the remarkable effects kick in.

HITT can be used in running, biking, swimming, squatting, leg pumps, Pilates, and so on. It’s the repetitive increase, then slowdown that does the trick. 

Many studies support the HITT approach as the best way to keep in shape and burn calories efficiently. Especially for  the everyday person who is pressed for time but also motivated to find her or his way toward better conditioning.

At the Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we make it our business to examine and counsel the whole you, and make you aware of the many ways you can stay on top of your health naturally. We want to help you reach satisfaction with the way you look and live.

Consider this insight on HITT from one of the authors of a study and article on intensity-interval training and article published in the journal, Cell Metabolism.

“Based on everything we know, there’s no substitute for these exercise programs when it comes to delaying the aging process,” said senior study author Sreekumaran Nair, a medical doctor and diabetes researcher at the Mayo Clinic.

”These things we are seeing cannot be done by any medicine.”

Not only do you burn more calories during a HIIT workout, but the  intense exertions serve to boost your body’s repair and recovery mechanisms dramatically. You can burn significantly more fat and calories in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout than a long, steady run.

HITT workouts usually do not involve strength training, but you could do that on a day off from the program. 

Another great advantage of HITT: it can be done almost anywhere and anytime.

Here at the Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we strongly recommend you look into high-intensity interval training workouts. They could make a world of difference for your health…before you know it!

Plant-Based Proteins Dramatically Improve Overall Health

The benefits and opportunities for plant-based proteins to help you stay healthy are ever-present. And it’s never too late to pick up the pace!

Plant-based proteins – vegetables, beans, nuts and more – have been shown to improve energy and lower the risk of heart disease. They can also elevate mood and reduce stress.

The list goes on. Plant-based proteins can ease the effects of rheumatoid arthritis, help you lose weight, lower cholesterol, and help fight off diabetes.

At The Supplement Store of the Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, we carry our proprietary product called SynerG PRO. It is a concentrated powder supplement that can quickly raise your intake of plant-based proteins.

Patients who use it  often comment they can’t believe how much better they feel within weeks.

The opportunities are there if you want to live longer, live healthier, look better, and feel better. At home, at work, and at play. Our team at The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa works closely with you to reach for and achieve these improvements.

Some studies also show that that plant-based nutrition may lower the risk of breast cancer in women who began increasing their intake as teen-agers and young adults.

That is eye-opening news, indeed.

You don’t have to go vegan, but any move in that direction can be beneficial to your health.

Plant-based protein supplements at The Supplement Store mean changes in your diet, of course, but there are many choices so you can find what tastes good to you – and still has the desired results.

People who reside where plant-based proteins are more accepted and enjoy just live longer and with more fulfillment.

One study in the U.S. looked at a controlled corporate setting, an environment where people work hard, deal with stress, and are always busy.

In some important research, 10 corporate sites were selected from across the country – California to Georgia. A select group of employees put on a plant-based nutrition was carefully studied and compared with the control group participants who had no diet restrictions. How’d they do?

The results, according to “significant improvements in depression, anxiety, fatigue, emotional well-being, and daily functioning.”

One reason: plant-based proteins have more of the key amino acids that have been shown to reduce blood pressure and improve mental clarity.

The time is now to increase the amount of plant-based proteins you consume or take. There is no substitute…to advance your quality of life and sustain it.

The Vampire Facial® Can Be A Best Friend To Your Face

Rejuvenate your face with a Vampire Facial®. Sound too good to be true? Well, you can believe it.

The Vampire Facial® at the Synergy Spa of the Guyer Institute is non-surgical, with little downtime, and best of all: it helps restore the glow to your face.

Denise Kaler, the CEO of the Synergy Spa says, “I can’t believe how much more youthful my face looked after the Vampire Facial®. I felt radiant. It took around an hour to do my face, neck and décolletage. With the topical numbing that was applied prior to the treatment, there was minimal discomfort.”

The Vampire Facial® utilizes the amazing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, combined with micro-needling. This combination can help transform the health of your cells and the appearance of your skin.

The plasma therapy involves extracting a small amount of blood from the body, and then using an advanced centrifuge isolate the all-important platelets.


The Vampire Facial® not only helps reduce the effects of aging, but also can significantly improve facial health and improvement after sun damage or injury.

At the Synergy Spa of the Guyer Institute, our Vampire Facial® leader is Jelena Strauser, a certified medical aesthetician, who has 16 years of experience re-energizing the face.

“I get so much pleasure out of what I am able to achieve with the Vampire Facial®,” Jelena says. “It is wonderful to use science, medicine, and the body’s cellular chemistry. On top of that, my experience and precision-based skill to help our clients maximize the vibrancy of their faces.”

Jelena said she sees satisfied patients leave her room and walk out the door again and again, women and men both.

One client at the Synergy Spa of the Guyer Institute says she is a believer through and through. “I had micro-needling done in the past with a serum,” she said. “Then I went to the Institute.

“I now realize my body’s own strengths and healing powers – using PRP therapy – are by far the best way to help my face looks amazing!”

It’s recommended that patients who want the Vampire Facial® have the procedure done three times, 8-12 weeks apart. This maximizes the positive impact; however, just one single treatment can make a big difference!

 At Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, your face can glow again. Call us at 317-580-1SPA (1772) for a consultation to see how we can help you look your best.
