Frequently Asked Questions
Why IV Hydration?
IV Therapy is the most popular trend in the health and wellness industry because it is easy, quick, and the results are almost immediate. Whether you are looking for more natural energy, a regulated sleep cycle, or even headache relief, IV Therapy will get you there. We use this treatment to target a variety of wellness needs through rehydration such as aiding recovery from illness or jet lag, providing hangover relief, restoring vitamin and nutrient levels, refreshing cosmetic appearance, prepping your body for fitness competitions, and giving you mental focus. If you are looking for any of these things, then IV Therapy is definitely a wellness trend you should get on board with. If you are already taking daily vitamins (or wanting to start), then you’re definitely in the right place, as the absorption rate is much better, and quicker, than getting those same vitamins and nutrients in pill form (100% absorption rate vs only 20% absorption rate).
How long does IV Therapy Last?
IV therapies are the clinical gold standard in “flushing” out the body of unwanted toxins and helping achieve balance. Again, this will vary on the individual and the physical health status. The noticeable effects typically last 2-4 days; however, the underlying clinical benefits can continue beyond that.
What’s The Most Popular Drip and Why?
Our most popular drip is our Executive Drip. It’s true that we have developed a multitude of amazing drips and booster shots to address specific needs of our clients, but the facts are, sometimes our bodies have a group of decencies that keep us from feeling our best. Instead of spending countless hours on multiple drips, we utilize our Executive drip to meet your needs by tailoring every ingredient to you at the moment of your appointment. This is so effective because we can address anxiety, immunity, and performance needs in one visit to get you to 100% and keep you feeling like a million bucks. If we had to recommend one drip, the Executive Drip is the one and our clients agree!
Who is administering my IV?
Every one of our employees is a registered nurse or Doctor with years of experience that ensures a comfortable, relaxing, and pain free experience.
What’s The Difference Between An IV Drip & A Booster Shot?
IV is an abbreviation for “intravenous”. To administer an IV Drip, a small plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein using a needle that is quickly removed once the plastic tube is advanced into the vein. IV Drips consist of 250-1000 ml of fluid with a mixture of vitamins and antioxidants. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and vitamins throughout the body with 100 % absorption into the bloodstream. IV Drips usually take 30-45 min to infuse.
A Vitamin Booster Shot is a quick 10-second injection that delivers a few vitamins intramuscularly, directly into the gluteal or deltoid muscle. There is no IV access required with vitamin boosters. The dosages of vitamins also differ due to smaller volumes can be injected into the muscle. The booster shot muscle absorption is surprisingly nearly equal to that of IV going directly into the bloodstream.
Can anyone receive an IV?
We recommend that individuals over the age of 18 receive IV Therapy & Booster Shots. If you have a specific need, please reach out to us directly.
Does it hurt?
Our registered nurses are highly trained and have years of experience that guarantee our precision and an ability to create a pain-free process. On top of highly skilled registered nurses, we use pediatric size needles so they are as small as can be.
Do you accept health insurance?
At the moment we do not accept health insurance, but we do accept HSA and FSA.
