During a discussion of sports-performance psychology on Fox 29 News, Todd Stofka, founder of Philly Hypnosis, paraphrased self-help pioneer Napoleon Hill in saying, "What you believe, you can achieve." This mantra captures the mission of Todd and his business partner and former protégé, Pat Donohue, as they use hypnotherapy's power of suggestion to help clients remodel their thoughts in the areas of sports, smoking, and eating. The pair of certified hypnotherapists conducts hypnosis using Todd's signature technique, the Stofka method, which combines his firsthand insight as a competitive athlete with neurolinguistic psychology and traditional hypnosis.

Sara Naomi has seen the effects of holistic care firsthand. Growing frustrated going from doctor to doctor after being diagnosed with Lyme disease, Sara turned to complementary healthcare methods that addressed her spiritual and emotional well-being in addition to her physical state. The strides she made with this holistic approach inspired her to learn more about other therapeutic techniques and eventually found her own practice.
Sara melds a variety of therapies such as reflexology, aromatherapy, and acupressure to help patients attain optimal well-being with her signature service, HK: BioEnergetic Acupuressure. She first attempts to identify the root cause of issues such as pain and phobias, then she works to relieve them by applying gentle, bare-handed pressure at key points on the body’s energy pathways. As a result, clients may enjoy a decrease in stress, allowing them to relax without the metaphorical fog and literal foghorns that can often impede mental clarity.

Today, treatments at Viva Healthy Life include those disciplines and more, and complimentary consultations help clients decide which treatments are right for them.
