Dr. Jean-Rafael R. Heiz-Neri

Jean Rafael was born in Chicago to a French father and Venezuelan mother. His diverse cultural background has given him the opportunity to apply a number of healing techniques from various cultures. At the tender age of ten, JR began to study Reiki. From there he was inspired to study other forms of energy work including Qigong, Reconnection and Manos. By 2008, these studies lead him to find a way of life and medical system called Sintergetica.

Sintergetica is a unique diagnostic method which combines Chinese, Tibetan, Ayurvedic, South American, Shamanistic and Western Medicines. The method is based upon Vascular Automatic Response (VAS). VAS considers the whole self including: gross and microscopic anatomy; metabolism; circulation; energy patterns and flow; temperament; emotions; psychic factors; and ancestral energy.

JR no longer approaches medicine from a traditional or alternative view, rather his approach is complementary. He believes that health is a state of balance and disease, derived from two words, dis-ease, is a lack of harmony in your body. Therefore, the use of medicine should be a balance of approaches which complement one another. In this state of balance, there is no longer a place for dis-ease.


He also believes healing comes from within yourself, but finding the source may be difficult at times. This is why the most important aspect of his work is to teach as he heals. This is one of the most rewarding aspects of Sintergetica. JR smiles when he witnesses his patients get better as a result of their own ability to acknowledge, feel and heal on their own. He would love to teach you the art of healing yourself and in the future he hopes to continue to bring Sintergetica to the public through his continued one-on-one work, as well as with seminars and meditation sessions.
