Frequently Asked Questions

Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a safe and effective method for delivering vitamins and minerals directly to your bloodstream.  This method bypasses the digestive tract which allows for 100% absorption of all nutrients, making them immediately available for cellular use. 

After consenting to treatment and taking a brief medical history, you can select an IV from our menu. Intramuscular shots are also available. Once the paperwork is complete we will take you back to any of our seats while we prepare the IV. Your arm will be prepped in a sterile fashion, and an IV will be placed and secured. A normal IV bag takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. Once completed we will remove the catheter tube and cover the IV site, it's that simple. 

There are many benefits, which include but are not limited to:

  • Most efficient method of delivering vital nutrients to the body
  • Bypasses the digestive tract for 100% absorption
  • Nutrients are immediately available for cellular use
  • Boosts immune system to help prevent or treat illness
  • Increases energy

Yes, we only use reputable and accredited compounding pharmacies for our ingredients. These infusions are only administered and monitored by a licensed Registered Nurse with skilled IV experience.

Side effects rarely happen if at all. If they do they are usually minor and short lived such as bruising or bleeding at IV site, warming or cooling sensation in arm during your infusion, tasting or smelling vitamins throughout your infusion. Having a vitamin smell in your urine 24 - 48 hours after infusion administration. Our staff are trained to manage all side effects that you may experience.

We use only skilled Registered Nurses for IV placement to ensure the least amount of pain is felt if any at all. Once the IV is in place only a very small, flexible straw (catheter) will be left in the vein ensuring a comfortable session.

Most of our IV infusions take anywhere between 20 - 40 minutes. Anatomy, IV placement, and client movement after the IV is placed are the biggest factors affecting flow rates. During this time you can relax, power nap, recline, read, listen to music on your headphones, and just take time for you.

This depends on each individual’s needs and and/or ailment to be treated. For best results we recommend monthly infusions, with an additional infusion in that month if you may be feeling run down, under the weather, preparing for travel or a marathon, etc. Some of the treatments can be a quick fix and are only needed when the ailment is active ie: migraine, illness, post-workout or travel fatigue, etc. We suggest speaking to the Registered Nurse on site to collaborate what would be best to meet your needs.

Yes, vitamins and nutrients taken orally are only partially absorbed. Getting vitamins through the IV or IM process is a direct route to your system and your cells for maximum absorption. Some vitamins, such as B12, we would recommend that you take a break from your 'at home' supplement for 48 hours after that booster or if it is included in your infusion and then return to your daily vitamin regimen.

IV hydration goes straight to your blood stream bypassing the GI tract and absorbing 100% of the nutrients. Typically you will feel the effects same day of treatment. Full absorption or the vitamins administered can take up to 24 hours. Some of our infusions are designed for long term benefits and may not give you the immediate boost, but will support your system and nutrient needs over time.

There are a few medications that can interact with IV therapy. Our Registered Nurse on staff will conduct a thorough client history to ensure the drip of your choice is safe and effective, and not interacting with your current medication regimen or current health diagnosis.
