While Dr. Heyman focuses on weight management and lifestyle changes, she has expanded her area of expertise to habits that affect the body, mind, and spirit. A Registered Nurse whose first specialization was Obstetrics, she went on to head the Open Heart Surgery Unit at the prestigious St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, NY. She then earned degrees as a Doctor of Chiropractic and in Acupuncture and served 12 years as a member of the Board of Trustees of the New York Chiropractic College.

In addition, she has incorporated health coaching in all her careers. Dr. Heyman lives in New York City.
In all the years that Dr. Sylvie Heyman has practiced nursing, chiropractic, and acupuncture she was aware that many of her patients were victims of unhealthy habits. Many of her patients needed to lose weight, learn to eat healthy, exercise more, get quality sleep, and reduce stress in their lives. As she worked with these patients she noticed that unless they changed their habits, most of them needed to be treated for longer periods of time and many of them returned for treatment for the same conditions again and again. Dr. Sylvie wanted to help more people recognize the habits that kept them from reaching their goals, and learn ways to create new habits and change the old ones that no longer served them well.
