IV Therapy – Top 5 FAQ’s

What Is IV Therapy?

Intravenous therapy is the infusion of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids directly into the blood stream providing 100% absorption.  The benefit of this treatment method is the delivery of therapeutic doses of the nutrients,  immediately available for your body to use.

At The IV Wellness Boutique we have specifically formulated IV’s to optimize your well-being and address specific health concerns.

Is It Safe?

Yes! All of our IV’s are prepared and administered by licensed Naturopathic doctors to ensure patient safety.  IV therapy has been used for over 50 years, and was first developed by Dr. John Myers (“the Myers Cocktail”).

Does It Hurt?

Our Naturopathic doctors are all board certified with years of experience in IV vitamin therapy.  Most patients find the treatment quite comfortable and relaxing.  Some patients experience mild aching during the treatment or minor pain sensation during the needle insertion.  Heat packs can often alleviate discomfort.

Do I Need To Do Anything Before Coming In?

For best results, make sure you drink plenty of water and eat prior to coming in for your treatment.
