Jimmy Scaringi

Jimmy founded Synergy Nutrition & Wellness in January of 2019 after years of focusing on his health in the form of athletics and aesthetics. After ten years of training others and realizing the damage he was doing to his body he had a wake up call. Jimmy finally realized there was more to health than lean muscle mass. He realized that internal health and healing was the true path.

Jimmy was fortunate enough to study under Dr. Stephen Dubuc to learn a life changing modality called Nutrition Response Testing beginning in 2010. Jimmy became an official graduate of Ulan Nutritional Systems in 2017 and shortly thereafter was inducted into their hall of fame for having such a profound impact on his community.

Jimmy and his wife Tara now own the largest holistic wellness facility in WNY, Synergy Nutrition & Wellness as well as be moved fitness. The two have provided a space where people can utilize many natural modalities and amazing providers ranging from clinical nutrition, holistic wellness, massage therapy, doulas, mental health counselors, physical therapists, a functional movement gym, chiropractic care, infrared sauna, and more to come!

May God always bless you with happiness and health.
