Our Wellness Philosophy
No matter what brought you to VIVA Wellness—weight loss, digestive health, nutrition support, lymphatic treatments, or simply wanting to optimize your health—we’re honored to connect with you and we’re excited to help co-create your path toward healing.
We're Here for Your Health
Even if you are not engaging in our medical weight loss programs, all of our services are truly health promoting, and while our specialty is weight care, our belief is that weight is a symptom of how your system is functioning as a whole. The services we offer are carefully curated based on this belief and we know them to be truly beneficial to all individuals who would like to improve their health on a deep level. From health newbies to experienced biohackers and everyone in between—you belong here.
We Can Empathize with Our Clients Because We've Been There
We know that for many, the journey to this moment may have been painful, if not excruciating, and we want to assure you that we truly, genuinely understand. Read more about our Founder Jennifer’s story to get the full picture of just how authentic this sentiment truly is to her. But know that many on our team also share personal stories that inspired their choice to support others on similar journeys.
We also know that you may have previously faced shame among your family or peers, gaslighting from medical providers, and a lot of confusion about why you are struggling with the physical issues you face. We are very clear in our stance that these things only make you human, and we LEAN ON your story to truly access the root cause so that we can offer you the right solutions.
We want you to know:
- You can achieve your goals. No matter what you’ve been told in the past, your challenges and imperfections do not mean that you will never achieve your goals.
- Your imperfections are merely clues. Dead ends of the past, or things that haven’t worked for you, help guide us toward what may be the best solution for you. Your imperfections also give us insight into what’s lurking unseen.
- Don't let regret limit your future. Your past, your decisions, and your current state do not have to be limitations. We are dedicated to open minds, research, exploring and taking smart risks.
- There is almost always a new approach available. All you need is an open mind and the right resources to help you connect the dots. We are confident that if we are not that exact resource you need, we know someone who is.
- Listening is one of the most important aspects of our jobs. The more open you can be, in a way that feels safe for you, the more opportunities we have to address the root cause of your challenges.
The depth and breadth of healing that is available when setting out on this journey is rarely talked about, yet it is something we are incredibly passionate about. Weight loss and wellness goals are NOT just aesthetic-inspired. We want our clients to know that it’s okay to care about your health, and it’s okay to have goals around your weight.
It’s okay to want to take “feeling good” to “feeling incredible”—you are worthy of radiant health and wellness—in whatever way that means to you.
Our Wellness Services: We Offer More Than Weight Management
We are the guides, you are the driver in your experience navigating your health.
You are the driver of your VIVA Wellness experience. You can also pick and choose which of our services you want to take advantage of, you decide what feels best for you. But we're always here to help, if you’d like guidance in creating a wellness plan for any service area, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation.
Sometimes people think you must have a weight issue to use any of our services or that you must have a consultation before beginning with us. (With the exception of our medical weight loss services, when we do require an initial consultation for safety purposes, as we may prescribe medications, etc.) If you would like to get started with any other services: IV, colon hydrotherapy, lymphatic drainage, infrared sauna, etc.), please go for it. You can schedule your services online right now.
If at any point you have a question or are seeking insight, always remember we are here for you.
Your Journey to Wellness is Holistic
At VIVA Wellness we believe in an integrative and holistic approach to wellness, meaning that all parts of the system are connected, and so when you are able to create healing in any one area, the whole system benefits.
We welcome and encourage you to discuss any health challenges with our team, even if you think they aren't exactly related. The more you share with our team, the better we’re able to recommend the right wellness protocols for you. Wellness is holistic and we may suggest complementary treatments to increase the effectiveness and improve your results. In addition to the wellness services we offer, we have an extensive network of compassionate, vetted providers. These providers offer a wide variety of modalities including traditional medicine, counselors and therapists, traditional Chinese medicine, reiki, shamans and energy workers, and more, that we are confident in referring to our clients.
