IV Therapy

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy involves intravenous infusions of fluids, vitamins, and minerals directly into your bloodstream to improve your hydration levels and boost nutrient absorption. IV therapy is commonly used in hospitals for people undergoing surgery or recovering from an illness, though it can also be used outside of hospitals to help you recover when you’re feeling run down.


What are the benefits of IV therapy?

Since IV infusions are administered directly into your bloodstream, they can be absorbed and utilized faster than supplements taken orally. When you take vitamins or minerals orally, they must first be processed by your digestive system before they reach your blood. This can slow down absorption speed, meaning your cells get the essential nutrients they need more slowly than with an IV.

In some cases, it’s also difficult to take higher levels of vitamins and minerals orally because they can upset your stomach or cause other digestive issues, like cramping or bloating. Administering nutrients through an IV prevents the risk of adverse reactions so you can take higher doses of vitamins safely.  


What conditions can IV therapy help with?

IV therapy can be beneficial for healthy adults and may help with:

  • Immune system issues
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Feeling run down
  • Dehydration, especially after a sporting event or drinking alcohol
  • Recovery after travel
  • Memory enhancement
  • Migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune conditions

While IV therapy doesn’t cure any conditions, it can provide fluids, vitamins, and minerals that your body needs to function optimally.


What happens during an IV therapy visit?

During your IV therapy visit, you’ll first meet with the team to discuss your symptoms and overall health. They then recommend an appropriate type of IV infusion for you based on your consultation.

Before placing the IV in your arm, a nurse cleans your arm with rubbing alcohol and may apply numbing cream to reduce your discomfort. You’ll feel a small prick or pinch as the sterile needle is inserted. The needle is taped in place for the duration of your session.

Sessions generally last one hour and you’ll be able to relax and rest during the visit. Afterward, you should feel more energized and alert.* You can return to your regular routine immediately after your visit.
