IV Therapy: Everything You Need to Know
Have you considered trying IV therapy?
If so, you’re not alone. IV therapyhas gained serious traction in the past couple of years, praised for its power to rejuvenate and reinforce bodies of all ages.
A-list celebrities like Adele and Chrissy Teigen (to name a few) have helped bring it into the mainstream, sparking discussions on news websites and social media.
But how does IV therapy work? And why should you think about trying it for yourself?
What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous therapy is a well-known procedure in hospitals and clinics worldwide. You might have been attached to a drip yourself, or at least seen them in movies and television shows.
Doctors and nurses use IV drips so often because they’re the fastest, most direct way to deliver fluids into patients’ bloodstreams. The body absorbs far more nutrients administered through an IV than in a pill or capsule, as the fluid bypasses the gastrointestinal system completely.
But it’s not just a medical solution anymore — a growing number of spas (including ours) offer IV therapy as a cutting-edge health and beauty treatment.
A convenient solution for modern lives
Our IV therapy involves introducing a specific formula of nutrients to the bloodstream, tailored to suit clients’ personal needs or goals. This is a convenient, effective option for busy lifestyles — we all know just how hard trying to get the good stuff your body needs through food, drink and supplements is. And the costs can mount up faster than you realize too.
Common additions to IV therapy formulas include vitamins A, C, and D, Glutathione and more along with amino acids and essential minerals. Your therapist will discuss your physical requirements and help you choose the right IV therapy for best results.
Why is it So Popular?
We’re more concerned with health and wellbeing than ever today. Research shows the global market for it will reach $815 billion by 2021, mainly driven by health-conscious millennials.
But millions of us also lead busy lives and find staying on top of health, fitness and nutritional-intake a real challenge. We work long shifts. We raise families. We try to fit as much into each day as we can.
Fortunately, IV therapy fits neatly into any schedule and offers one of the most practical, simplest ways to boost the body’s immune system, help yourself feel better and get the nutrition you need. People tend to feel noticeably energized and better overall after each IV therapy session.
You’ll cut down on the amount of money and time you usually spend picking up multiple supplements at the store too. You can stay hydrated and reduce your risk of feeling rundown due to vitamin-deficiencies with a single treatment (helpful if you’ve been drinking alcohol ahead of a big day, such as on the eve of a wedding).
But remember: a good diet and regular exercise remain fundamental to a healthy lifestyle. IV therapy is an excellent addition to both, but not a replacement.
How Does IV Therapy Combat the Ageing Process?
We all age. We all notice differences in the way we look and feel. We all wish we could stay young for a little bit longer.
But IV therapy can help slow the ageing process by giving your system so many of the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids it craves. Your skin will look and feel better; you may have more energy and agility too.
Good, nutritious IV therapy helps to boost the body’s healing capabilities, encouraging tissue to recover faster. The extra hydration prevents the skin becoming dry.
Collagen-boosting and anti-inflammatory treatments can reduce the visibility of wrinkles, sagging skin and acne for smoother, more youthful.

Am I a Good Candidate for IV Therapy?
IV therapy is a terrific treatment for most people.
At its most basic, it works well for anyone experiencing jet lag or feeling rundown after a hectic few weeks. One session can leave looking revitalized and in a better state of mind.
IV therapy is also a fantastic way to kickstart a healthier lifestyle. If you’ve followed a ‘bad’ diet, drank too much alcohol on a regular basis and been sedentary, this treatment can flush toxins from your body in preparation for more sensible habits.
It’s also a good option if you’re particularly lacking in vitamins C, D or other beneficial nutrients included in our range of IV therapy options.
Our experts are happy to discuss your thoughts and offer advice before you commit to any one of our treatments, so don’t be afraid to ask for additional information or help.
