Our Mission at Synaptic Travels & Wellness

Our mission is to provide evidence-based knowledge and skills to help women manage their brain health and general health outcomes.

Traditional medicine has neglected women’s brain health despite an increasing body of evidence that shows female hormones influence women’s brain health and impact their overall health.

Our unique expertise aims to fill the gap in services available to help women’s cognitive functioning focused on a mind-body approach.

Passionate About Serving Others

We’re passionate about our work and grateful that we have the expertise to help women improve their health. After a combined 50+ years of specializing in neuropsychology, we still find our work exceedingly rewarding.

Extensive Expertise in Women' Brain and General Health

Few professionals have the degree of unique qualifications needed to address women’s brain health in the context of neuroscience, lifestyle, and preventative complementary interventions.

Compassionate Customized Services

We’re empathic and sensitive to each client’s individual needs and develop customized plans to manage their brain health.

We establish strong connections with our clients—this is critical as many are in distress when they come to us.

We both have a good sense of humour and are adaptable, resilient, and optimistic—qualities we bring to our work.

We commit to follow up with our clients to ensure each individual has support for initiating and maintaining their brain health plan.
