IV Therapy feeds your body the essential nutrients it needs for optimal health right where those nutrient go directly to work. No more counting vitamins, IV therapy infuses you with exactly what you need!The absence of toxins is a prerequisite for health, but so is the presence of nutrients.Most people who participate in IV Therapy usually fall into one of the following categories:

desire to maintain or improve their current state of good health
desire to prevent or minimize effects of colds or the flu or other viral illness
desire to either prepare for, or recover from, a surgical procedure
desire to improve athletic performance
desire to slow the effects of aging and the aging process
desire to better manage stress and its effects on the body
desire to enhance the appearance of hair, nails and skin

Where do you fit in? You deserve good health. Make sure you’re getting everything you need. Before any IV Therapy treatment begins, every patient will have a baseline blood test to ensure tolerances to all vitamins and minerals, meet with wellness Doctor to go over general health questions and have vitals taken to determine the best course of IV treatment. For patients wanting to fully integrate IV Therapy into their personal wellness plan, adding an in depth blood test will provide a complete nutritional analysis and reveal any exposure to toxins for a more detailed analysis of each patient’s current state of health. Using this data, an individualized plan for IV Therapy or adjunctive treatments can be created and implemented.IV Therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that is well tolerated by most people. There is a low risk of serious adverse side effects which may include a slight after-taste of supplements shortly after the infusion. Urine may also have a strong odor or color shortly after completion. Some patients may also experience a sensation of warmth and flushing or feel a cooling sensation as the IV is administered.Intravenous supplements are very safe, beneficial and easy in application. They use a very small ‘butterfly’ needle or a micro-catheter to infuse the prescribed supplements. Soothing music, computer access, massage chair and current reading materials are all available.
