IM Therapy

WHAT IS IV & IM NUTRITONAL THERAPY?

If you’ve recently wondered, “What is vitamin IV therapy anyway?” Vitamin IV therapy (a.k.a. IV therapy, IV nutritional therapy, IV nutrient therapy, IV nutrition, and intravenous therapy) is a popular type of therapy used for various health benefits. It is commonly used to deliver vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients to the body either for patients striving for improved health, whether to help boost energy and immunity, detox, or for age management.

Nutritional therapy can also be delivered via a single intramuscular (IM) injection. Shots may be given for a quick boost as part of a course to achieve specific goals.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

There are many factors to consider when developing a treatment plan, so how often you should undergo IV/ IM therapy will vary from person to person. Because your treatment plan will be customized for you as an individual, it is difficult to put a schedule on sessions. However, most people will benefit from treatments spaced about 1-2 weeks apart initially

HOW MUCH DOES IV OR IM NUTRITIONAL THERAPY COST?

The cost starts at $125 and up per treatment. (There are a variety of factors that determine the overall price). To ensure that your Nutritional Therapy is affordable, we accept a variety of payment methods including special financing plans.

WHAT TO EXPECT BEFORE AND AFTER TREATMENT?

We are excited to hear that you are coming in for IV/ IM nutritional therapy as part of your treatment plan. Below is a list of suggestions you can do before your IV/ IM to make it an even better experience!

  •  Hydrate.   You are asking yourself why – won’t the IV rehydrate me?  The minerals and vitamins infused via IV are dehydrating at the cellular level and your body will be more responsive if you are hydrated prior to starting the IV.  Also, if you are low on fluids the veins in your arms will be smaller and they tend to hide on us when we are looking for the best site to start your IV.  Your response to the IV and finding a vein will be improved by drinking a few glasses of water before your appointment.

  •  Eat. Some of the vitamins and minerals can cause nausea if given on an empty stomach.

  • Relax and breathe.  

During the IV infusion, vitamins and nutrients will slowly drip from the IV line and enter your bloodstream. Depending on the type of infusion, this may take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. You won’t feel the infusion as it is happening, and you should be able to sit back and relax until the confusion is completed.

IS IT SAFE?

IV Therapy  It’s believed to be completely safe, effective and restorative. In a perfect world, we’d all drink enough fluids and get the appropriate nutrients we need every day. However, that’s not always an attainable goal to achieve. Because of this, many people depend on a solution that can help complement a good diet and proper hydration for living as our healthiest selves.
