IV stands for intravenous, which means within a vein. A small needle is inserted into a vein in your arm; the needle is then removed, leaving only a small plastic tube in which we administer fluids, vitamins, and minerals directly into the bloodstream.
IV therapy allows for administration directly into the bloodstream. Within just 8 minutes of starting the infusion, cells begin using the vitamins and minerals. Being able to bypass the stomach and liver allows for lower dosing, fewer side effects, quicker and better results.
Upon arrival, any questions will be answered; you’ll sign the consent form, and your blood pressure and heart rate will be checked. If there are no contraindications, we will proceed with starting the IV. Once the IV is started, we will add your vitamins to an IV bag and begin your infusion. During the infusion, your arm may feel cold; this is from the liquid entering your bloodstream. You are free to sit back and relax, be up and moving around if you’d like, or even take a nap. When the infusion is complete, we will remove the IV and place a band-aid. That’s it!
All infusions are administered by our highly experienced and trained Nurse Practitioner or Registered Nurse.
Yes! We require every new patient to fill out an in depth client intake form to ensure safety. This form is reviewed by our licensed Nurse Practitioner prior to any services being rendered. If there are any further questions or concerns, we have a medical director on staff available for consultation.
Your health and safety are our number one priority!
We order all of our vitamins from licensed 503b compounding pharmacies. 503b compounding pharmacies are FDA-approved pharmacies capable of producing and directly distributing sterile vitamins without patient-specific prescriptions.
On average most infusions take 30-45 minutes. The entire process takes approx—1 hour.
There is a small amount of discomfort during the insertion of the IV catheter. Once the catheter is placed, the infusion is painless.
We do NOT accept any forms of insurance. We do accept any major credit card, Venmo, FSA & HSA cards.
Although we are administering vitamins, we require all our pregnant and breastfeeding women to consult with their current provider prior to receiving our services.
