What is IV Therapy?
IV Therapy, also known as Intravenous Therapy, is the infusion of vitamins, nutrients, minerals, amino acids and fluids directly into the bloodstream using a minimally invasive approach. By using IV hydration, 100% of the administered dose of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and fluids is immediately absorbed and provides fast relief from a number of ailments.
What should I do to prepare?
It is always wise to drink plenty of water. The more water you drink, the plumper your veins become and the easier it’ll be to locate your veins to administer and increase hydration and venous volume leading to the best results. Be sure to bring a good book or headphones with you as you sit and relax and enjoy the treatment.
How long does it take?
IV bags can take anywhere between 15 minutes to 1 hour to administer. The time of the drip will depend on the amount recommended by your healthcare provider. Most drips average up to or less than 30 minutes.
How frequently should I do my IV therapy?
Your healthcare provider will recommend weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly treatment depending on symptoms or desired effects.
Does It Hurt?
Everyone varies on their fear of needles and we understand that. Most people barely feel the IV placement, and many don’t feel it at all. Our certified medical staff is highly experienced and thoroughly trained. We utilize a topical numbing agent and great care to make any discomfort barely noticeable.
What should I worry about?
IV therapy poses low risk for side effects. These could include irritation, inflammation, or bruising of the puncture site. More serious symptoms would include systemic reactions such as allergies but these are very rare despite its possibility of occurrence. You should always share with your provider any and all pertinent information regarding previous allergic reactions to medications or therapies in the past and/ or medications or supplements you are currently taking.
Your healthcare provider will consult you prior to any administration and will discuss your condition and desires to achieve fantastic results.
