Our weight loss journey began in June, 2013 when a weight loss division was started within the medical practice of Twin Hills Health Center in Muncy, PA. We were passionate about helping our community lead healthier and happier lives. In 2018, we expanded our offices throughout NorthCentral Pennsylvania and separated weight loss into its own entity. In 2020, we found we could expand beyond our geographic boundaries and serve our clients both in person and virtually. With that vision – our new program inStriv was born!

Our mission continues to help our clients lose weight quickly, naturally, and in a healthy sustainable way.
