The Science behind IV Treatments

About IV Science

Unlike oral medication, intravenous therapy, or IV therapy, bypasses the digestive tract and delivers hydration, vitamins, and nutrients straight into your blood vessels.

Many celebrities have posted about their neighborhood’s new drip lounge. You’ve seen the popularity grow on Instagram and heard about it from friends. But what is an IV drip? It’s the most efficient way to administer vitamins, minerals, and or medication and bring you relief and revitalized health! 

IV therapy used to be reserved for patient’s recovery in the hospitals but it has grown in popularity as Hollywood elites discover the amazing benefits. Having your treatments delivered directly into your bloodstream, your body will begin to absorb over 99% of the medication, almost immediately, versus oral supplements. Aside from the ease of administered vitamins and nutrients, IV therapy will increase your wellness, help prevent illnesses, provide instant relief from toxins, contribute to tissue enhancement, and maximize performance.

  • Does insurance pay for treatments?
    Most of the time no, but there have been circumstances where a patient's health problems demands regular IV infusions. In these specific instances, the treatment may be covered by insurance. Your insurance may require a medical reason to justify the payment.

  • Do you do IV's for children/ kids?
    Yes we have done IV's for kids as young as 5 years old. It honestly comes down to the child themselves and how comfortable they are. If they will allow us to place an IV we are happy to do so. We of course, will not force an IV on anyone. We also employ a painless needle stick technique which also helps very much. Anyone under the age of 18 would need parental consent and presence during the IV.
