What does an IV Therapy visit entail?
IV therapy is carefully administered by a primary care doctor that has been specifically trained in advanced IV therapy techniques. The treatment is performed in our relaxing IV lounge, where you will be able to relax comfortably and kick you feet up in a reclining chair.

The specific nutrients that are chosen for you, are delivered intravenously either through a “push” (small volume of solution) or “drip” (a larger “bag” of nutrients).

The process is typically painless and generally relaxing. Treatment times can range from 20 minutes for smaller pushes to 45 minutes for larger drip solutions.

Patients are welcome to rest, meditate, read, listen to music, surf the web, sleep, or play with their favorite personal electronic device during appointments to pass the time. Our IV lounge is a "quiet zone" and no cellular phone conversations are allowed.
