How does IV therapy work?

If you’ve ever been to a hospital or emergency room, you’ve probably seen IV therapy in action. The process uses a needle to place thin medical tubing directly into a vein. The other end of the tubing connects to a bag of saline solution, and practitioners can add medication to the bag. 

This same approach allows health practitioners to deliver a powerful nutrient boost directly into your bloodstream. This bypasses your digestive system entirely, ensuring a known quantity of micronutrients is received. 

You can get all of the nutrients you need through food sources. Doing so, however, requires considerable time spent planning, shopping for, and preparing healthful meals each day. IV nutrition therapy offers a way to get a full dose of nutrients safely and effectively. 

What are some of the potential benefits of IV therapy?

IV therapy is a highly customizable process. Amanda can create a personalized experience that includes the micronutrients that best align with your needs. 

Some of the potential benefits of IV therapy include:

  • Workout recovery
  • Fatigue fighter
  • Immune boost
  • Weight loss
  • Enhanced cognitive function
  • Reduced headache pain
  • Hangover recovery

Many people use IV therapy as a means of establishing and maintaining optimal nutrition at the most basic level. Others come in periodically to address specific health concerns. 

Is IV therapy a painful experience?

In the hands of a highly skilled practitioner like Amanda, IV therapy is a safe and painless process. You might feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your skin, but it takes just seconds to place the IV line and secure it in place using a small piece of surgical tape. 

At that point, you just rest and relax while the solution enters your bloodstream one slow drip at a time. You can read, listen to music, or just take some time for yourself during your visit, which lasts around an hour from start to finish. 

Many people report feeling immediate improvements, even before their session is complete. That’s likely because most Americans move through each day in a state of mild dehydration. IV therapy delivers an instant hydration correction, giving your system what it needs to thrive.
