What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is intravenous therapy. A tiny needle is used to enter a vein on your arm or hand. When the needle is withdrawn, a plastic catheter remains in place to infuse fluid and nutrients. IV therapy is a quick, effective, and relatively safe way to administer high doses of nutrients. Infusion times vary depending on your specific cocktail of nutrients. Pushes take roughly 20 minutes while drips can take 1-2 hours. You can sit back and read or watch TV while it infuses.

Why would I need IV Therapy?

IV therapy is safe for almost anyone. IV therapy bypasses the gastrointestinal system, which may have inflammation or malabsorption issues. Also, oral nutrients from food or supplements may not be absorbed well. The nutrients in an IV are delivered right where they are needed: the cells of your body. Anything administered is absorbed 100% into the bloodstream.

Below are common reasons to receive IV nutrient therapy:

  • Chronic digestive issues (IBS, Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis)
  • Stressful lifestyle
  • Detoxification
  • Weak immune system
  • Anti-aging
  • Cancer
  • Chronic infections
  • Sports medicine
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Neurological conditions
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Mood Disorders
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Lyme disease
  • Asthma
  • Colds/Flu
  • Migraines
  • Chronic Inflammation
  • Autoimmune diseases

What are the risks to IV therapy?

Side effects are mostly related to the needle insertion. There may be pain at insertion, bruise at the site of the IV, or a warm sensation as the IV infuses. Our IVs are inserted by licensed health care professionals who have been trained properly, greatly reducing these side effects. We also offer a numbing spray to ease the pain of needle insertion.
