The IV Ambassadors
Alyssa started her fitness journey in 2004 while studying classical ballet at the Quinte Ballet School of Canada. Since then, she has competed at provincial level in fitness competitions and played an active role in the Cross-fit community in her hometown of Victoria. Alyssa played an integral role in the opening of Equinox Vancouver, joining the team in 2016. Equinox, a leader in the fitness and lifestyle industry, offers a balanced approach by incorporating movement, nutrition and regeneration to get the best results for its’ members. Meeting Heidi and Robin gave Alyssa the opportunity to not only find resources for regeneration for herself, but to share them with the Equinox community as well!
When I began my journey at Equinox in Vancouver, we started to learn what the company stands for: balance for those who work hard, play hard and train hard! I truly believe movement, nutrition and regeneration are the key components for success. I had the movement and nutrition aspects down, even if that meant an extra treat (or two!) here and there, but the regeneration was a component I was definitely missing. My body wasn’t always getting everything it needed to perform at it’s best. I felt a major difference in my body, after my initial treatment with Robin and Heidi from the IV Clinic. I knew I had found the missing piece to my balance my lifestyle. I find myself excited to visit the IV Clinic regularly because I always leave feeling refreshed and energized.

Gabriel’s yoga journey began in 2003. With a background in sports, dancing, and martial arts, he was intuitively drawn to the harmony of movement and breath that yoga techniques require. Yoga practice, he soon realized, is a consistently effective tool for physical health, mental well-being, and cross training, but what soon resonated with him the most were the meditative states that could be achieved. It didn’t take long before Gabriel developed a thirst for knowledge and a desire to expand and deepen his practice. Gabriel has since travelled extensively in the US, Europe, South America and Canada teaching and practicing. He is now certified in various methods, with a focus on yin, vinyasa, and Bikram/Ghosh method yoga. He is sincerely grateful to his teachers, his students, his partners such as the IV clinic and is honoured to share the teachings, to hold space for others, and serve in the spirit of yoga.
My experience with IV vitamin therapy and the staff at the IV has been wonderful. As a full-time yoga teacher IV vitamin therapy helps me on so many levels. The way in which the doctors cater each treatment specifically to my needs and goals each visit is instrumental. With regular IV vitamin therapy I find my body heals faster, I’m sharper mentally, I feel stronger and more focused and I rarely get sick. My yoga practice, career and lifestyle are exponentially better since I started working with IV vitamin therapy at the IV wellness boutique.

This past year I experience my first bout of seasonal allergies in my life, I was desperately searching for a quick fix to alleviate my symptoms and get back to the grind as fast as I could. I walked into the IV therapy clinic hoping that they could help me out. They did much much more. They identified that my seasonal allergies were much more than just allergies. It was the final straw after red lining it for so long. My body began to shut down. After one treatment I felt amazing but they explained to me that if I didn’t make other changes in my life, this would just be a temporary result. I have so much love and respect for everyone that works here because not only do they help you at that moment in time, but they also will tell you truth in what needs to be done. If it wasn’t for the IV I wouldn’t be able to perform my job to best of my ability as a Strength and Conditioning coach and a Brazilian jiu jitsu athlete. Having their support has been such blessing and not a day goes by that I am not grateful for their treatment.
