What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous Therapy (IV therapy) is the slow infusion of a liquid directly into the bloodstream through a vein. IV therapy is the fastest and most effective way to deliver essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids to the body. IV vitamin drips boost the body’s vitamins and immune system and can be used to counteract a range of health problems including hangovers, muscle aches, colds and flu, dehydration, vitamin deficiencies, fatigue, migraine and even jet lag. When incorporated into an existing healthy lifestyle, IV Therapy can greatly assist you to live your life to the fullest.
Why Should You Consider IV Therapy?
If you feel that your body isn’t functioning as well as you’d like it to be, it’s time to incorporate IV Therapy into your health routine. IV Therapy is much more effective than taking pills or oral vitamin supplements, as most of the contents of these pills end up getting lost in the digestion process. When we inject nutrients intravenously, we bypass the liver and the digestive system, and this increases absorption and allows the vitamins to reach the cells of the body much faster.
Although IV Therapy can be used as a quick solution to recovering from hangovers, jet lag or a stressful week, we recommend you use it as a regular fixture of your health routine. IV Therapy can help to offset a range of mental and physical problems that can arise due to stress, fatigue, dehydration and malnourishment. Our range of specially formulated IV Therapies includes Simple Hydration, Hydro Detox, Energy Boost, Vitamin C Therapy and Vitamin B12 Shots. It is very important that you have a consultation with a health professional (like one of our IV nurses) before commencing your IV Therapy, as IV treatment is not suitable for people with certain medical conditions.
The Benefits of IV Therapy
There are numerous benefits of IV Therapy. Depending on which IV Therapy solution you choose, these benefits will differ. Some general benefits of IV Therapy include:
- Increased energy
- Better mental clarity
- Improved sleep
- Improved sense of health and wellbeing
- Improvement of general bodily ailments
Does IV Therapy Hurt?
Besides the very mild prick of the needle, IV Therapy is actually quite comfortable and a great excuse to sit, relax and read the paper or a magazine. Our IV nurses are experienced and trained to insert the (very thin) needle in an efficient and painless manner.
How Often do People Have IV Therapy?
The frequency of IV therapy is dependent on the individual. Our nurses will create a customised IV Therapy health plan for you after your initial consultation. This health plan will outline the ideal timing, frequency and vitamin inclusions for your treatment. For best results, IV Therapy should be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle (of regular exercise and healthy eating).
