IV Therapy

IV Vitamin therapy is used to address specific health concerns as well as enhance overall well-being. Often referred to as ‘nutrient therapy’, the solutions injected are combinations of various vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or plant extracts.

By injecting these core nutrients directly into the bloodstream you receive 100% absorption into tissues and organs. The outcome? Clinical results are much more powerful, predictable and are seen sooner.
