IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a treatment that gets vitamins, minerals, and other necessary nutrients into your bloodstream quickly. Depending on your current symptoms, the Kaizen Medispa team formulates a nutrient-rich solution with everything you need. It might include vitamins B or C, magnesium, calcium, or amino acids. This solution goes into your blood through an IV drip, much like the kind you see in a hospital beside your bed, connected to your arm with a tube.

When you consume nutrients through ingestion, you absorb 10-90% of the nutrients and lose the rest. With an IV drip, you absorb 100% of the nutrients and feel their effect almost instantly.

When do I need IV therapy?

IV therapy can benefit you if you’re vitamin or nutrient deficient. You may also benefit from IV therapy if you have certain conditions, diseases, or even states of mind. Patients often come to Kaizen Medispa for IV therapy to treat:

  • Memory and concentration problems
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Dehydration
  • Hangovers
  • Headaches
  • Jet lag
  • Allergies
  • Migraines
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Lyme disease
  • Mold exposure
  • Heavy metal toxicity
  • Neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease
  • Autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus

You might also benefit from IV therapy if you’ve recently had a strenuous workout and want your muscles to heal quickly. After your IV therapy session, you’ll feel energized, relaxed, awake, optimistic, and ready to take on the day.

What can I expect at my IV therapy appointment?

When you arrive at Kaizen Medispa for IV therapy, the team assesses your state of health and decides which nutrients will benefit you the most. They clean and disinfect the skin on your arm or another injection site before locating a substantial vein and inserting the catheter. 

You might feel a pinch when the needle is inserted and the fluids slowly entering your bloodstream, but the process isn’t painful or overly uncomfortable. You’ll sit comfortably for 20 minutes to an hour as the nutrients flow. During this time, you can read, play a game, or otherwise entertain yourself to pass the time.
