IV Nutrient Therapy
What is IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a method used to administer fluids, nutrients, and/or medications into your body. This is one of the fastest ways to administer these substances. It's often used in hospitals and is increasingly being used for health optimization outside of the hospital setting.
What can I expect from an IV therapy session?
Nutrients and fluids are usually administered over the course of 30-60 minutes. Our experienced nurse, Kathy Palchik, will walk you through each step and ensure that you're comfortable and relaxed throughout the duration of treatment. Some people notice that they feel brighter or more energetic after a treatment, whereas others may experience improved sleep, depending on what nutrients were administered.
What IV Therapy infusions do you offer?
Our IV therapy service is uniquely tailored to your specific, individual needs. We calculate the doses of each nutrient based on any current conditions that you have, your current activity level, and your optimal nutrition status.
We do have pre-made formulas, but we emphasize individualized nutrient therapies based on the following categories:
Immunity: a blend of vitamin C, B vitamins, and zinc to support optimal immune function and resilience to illness
Athletic Repair/Recovery: this blend supports the athletic recovery process, energy production, and muscular repair
Weight Loss: when diet and exercise aren't enough, try a LipoStat injection! It's a combination of nutrients that facilitate weight loss
Hydration: feeling dehydrated? IV delivery of normal saline is one of the fastest ways to hydrate your body
Energy: contains various nutrients that support energy production! These include B vitamins, glutamine, arginine, citrulline, and more
Is IV therapy safe?
Like most medical treatments, IV therapy does have some risks. If there is any negative reaction to a treatment, it's usually localized redness, inflammation, bruising or swelling. There are more serious risks that our nurse will discuss with you before your visit.
How often do I need IV therapy?
The number of sessions typically varies from patient to patient. It depends on the reason you're receiving IV treatment and also how you respond to the treatment.
What is IV therapy used for?
IV therapy is often used to support recovery and wellbeing in chronic disease, to improve sports performance, to improve sports recovery, and to temporarily bridge nutrient gaps. It can help boost your nutrition and hydration status, helping you feel and move better.
