What is Intravenous Therapy (IV Therapy) and Nutrient Shot Therapy (IM Therapy)?

Intravenous Therapy (IV Therapy) and Nutrient Shot Therapy (IM Therapy) are methods that deliver concentrated levels of vital nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream by using an intravenous bag or indirectly into the blood stream by injection through muscle tissue.

What is the benefit of delivering nutrients by IV and IM Shot Therapy?

They ensure that the nutrition is obtained by the body, unlike oral supplementation where nutrients often pass right through us. Even with taking the highest quality supplements and best food choices, there can be issues with absorption.

With IV and IM shots, our cells are bathed with nutrients, achieving up to 10 times the concentration levels.

Cells are effectively able to metabolize the nutrients they require for optimal function and healing.

When your cells function properly energy and focus improve, tissue can recover more rapidly from workouts and injuries and the immune system can fight off illnesses such as colds and flu symptoms faster. That means we remain in peak mental and physical shape.

How many IV or IM Shot treatments will you need?

Well, that depends on the person and the desired effect.

Our patients we often get 1-2 infusions or nutrient injections per week IV Nutrients can take 20 minutes to 45 minutes for our more common infusions and possibly longer for our more complex infusions.

Nutrient Shots take less than 5-10 minutes and are great pick-me-ups.
