Jennifer Hruz Weight Loss VIVA Wellness


We'll Help You Reach Your Goals


At VIVA Wellness our mission is to help you create the best version of yourself by taking an integrative and functional approach to health and wellness. We strive to get to the root cause of your health challenges instead of symptom management alone. We also believe that the best version of you is not something that anyone other than you can determine—we believe a solution exists for every BODY and we pride ourselves in finding creative, compassionate solutions to find the wellness you desire with the quality of life you deserve.

The VIVA Wellness Story


Our owner and founder, Jennifer Hruz, Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, went through her own personal wellness journey by losing over 100 lbs herself and keeping it off for 15 years as she navigated life changes including the birth of her first child, as well as multiple physical and mental health challenges! Read more about Jennifer's story here and here. As such, VIVA Wellness began offering wellness services with a highlight on custom weight loss programs, but we offer so much more to help our clients achieve the best in health and wellness. Jennifer is a dreamer, personally enlivened by working 1:1 with her clients to move them to an empowered place with their body and their life. This mission extends to each service and provider at VIVA — how can we honor the story and goals of each individual who walks through the door with compassion and creatively determine the right solution to move them towards the wellness they envision for themselves.

Weight Loss

Through her own journey, Jennifer realized that the biggest struggle in losing weight is not always a physical struggle, rather a holistic one — very rarely is weight loss independent of some sort of mental, emotional, or other physical challenge. Perhaps it’s blood sugar related. Maybe it’s a digestive or gut brain health situation. Maybe the lymphatic system is not moving. Perhaps the body is overtaxed with toxins. We have solutions and protocols for each of these independently or in combination with other services. No goal is too lofty. No past scenario is too far gone to talk through. We are inclusive, creative, and empathetic. We are honored to help you write the desired ending to your weight loss story.

Because weight loss and healing overall generally involves both physical and mental interventions, what we do offer in-house we have created a robust network of trusted mental health, emotional health, and alternative and energetic providers (such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, reiki, etc.) that we refer with great confidence.

Expanded Wellness Services

In 2020 we added to our staff and brought on exciting new wellness services, including Colon Hydrotherapy, Lymphatic Drainage Treatment, and Body Contouring. We also expanded our IV Vitamin Infusions and IM Vitamin Injections packages and installed a brand new Infrared Sauna. In 2022, we added Manual Lymphatic Drainage & Post-Surgical Manual Lymphatic Drainage, as well as upgraded our Colonic offering to more closely align with the International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy standard which facilitates a smooth, and safe, effective treatment. Our Colon Hydrotherapists are I-ACT Certified. In 2023, we are renewing our commitment to holistic, root-cause healing by adding in a number of services that focus on the gut-brain axis and mental wellness as a key component to most healing goals.

No matter what your wellness goal is, you can start with a one-on-one consultation with one of our nurse practitioners, including founder Jennifer Hruz FNP-BC, APNP. Our team will discuss your main concerns, medical history, and any medications or physical limitations you may have., as well as understand the quality of life you seek and lifestyle preferences to keep in mind as we develop and plan your wellness journey.

Casual, Approachable, Effective Wellness Solutions

You’ll find that there’s nothing sterile about VIVA Wellness other than the actual tools that come in contact with your body. We pride ourselves on our calm, welcoming atmosphere and vibes that help your system feel safe. Not a lot of great healing happens from a stress state, and we keep that in mind at every touch point. Comfy couches in the rooms, cozy blankets on treatment tables, music, essential oils diffusing, etc.

If you have any special requests or medical anxiety, simply let our team know how we can best support you at time of booking — we honor all you’ve been through and ensure you that we’ll do our best to accommodate.

If you would like to get started on your path to wellness success, schedule a consultation today.
