What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous “within vein” therapy is a safe, fast, and effective way to administer vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream. Receiving high quality nutrients intravenously allows for higher doses of nutrients with optimal absorption. This method bypasses the gut allowing for direct delivery of nutrients at the cellular level.
What are the benefits of IV Vitamin Infusions?
Just to name a few:
- Increase energy levels
- Strengthen your immune system
- Faster recovery from an illness
- Fewer illnesses
- Promote anti-aging
- Faster recovery time after strenuous workouts or sports competitions
- Helps cure that dreaded hangover
Who can get IV Infusions?
Almost anyone can receive IV Infusions. We do not treat minors under the age of 18 years old, patients with certain medical conditions, and women who are pregnant/nursing.
Does it hurt?
It is very similar to having your blood drawn. You will feel a slight pinch, after the IV is inserted it is painless. We can also apply a topical numbing agent to help ease the pain if you are afraid of needles. We try to make the process as comfortable as possible for every client.
Who will administer my IV Vitamin Infusion?
Our highly trained, fully accredited, licensed Registered Nurses (RN) administer all of our IV Vitamin Infusions.
How long does the IV Vitamin Infusion take?
In general, for most patients it takes about 45 minutes from start to finish. Depending on the amount of fluids you receive or any special treatments, your visit with us may take longer.
How soon will I feel the effects?
Everyone is different. The factors will depend on your nutritional and hydration status. The more deficient and unbalanced your system is, the greater and more immediate an effect you will feel. People who get regular IV Vitamin Infusions will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance.
How long do the beneficial effects last?
This will vary on the individual and the physical health status. The noticeable effects typically last 2-4 days; however, the underlying clinical benefits can continue beyond that.
How often can I receive IV Vitamin Infusions?
Everyone is different and has unique needs. Some people respond best to a weekly treatment while others may only require a single session per month. Our nursing staff will discuss what options are best for you.
Factors that determine IV Therapy frequency:
- Physical activity
- Quality of sleep
Is it better to receive an IV Vitamin Infusion before or after a workout or a night of partying?
For optimal wellness and hydration, infusing before and after a strenuous workout or big night of drinking is ideal. Infusing/hydrating before your big event will help to prevent dehydration and infusing/hydrating after will help treat dehydration.
Is it an expensive treatment?
IV Therapy is a premium service that improves your body’s performance enormously. It is an investment, so if you compare the price against the benefits you receive from it, you’ll find it’s worth it. Using preventative medicine, such as IV Therapy, strengthens your immune system, which then in turn helps you avoid expensive doctor or hospital visits and prescription medications. Our treatments are hundreds of dollars cheaper than the same treatments at the hospital. The emergency room charges most people with insurance $250 to walk in the door, not to mention the cost of the IV fluids and other medical supplies that are needed for an IV treatment.
