What is IV vitamin therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a staple of emergency medical care and treatment for a wide range of health conditions. IV therapy, also called IV vitamin therapy, delivers a powerful surge of nutrients directly into your bloodstream.
The process uses a sterile needle to place a piece of thin medical tubing into a vein on your hand or wrist. The other end of that tubing connects to a bag of custom-blended nutrients suspended in saline. As you relax and lay back, the solution slowly enters your bloodstream one drip at a time.
What are the benefits of IV vitamin therapy?
You should always strive to get the bulk of your nutrients from high quality food sources. But meeting your daily needs through food alone may be challenging at times. You might not have the time or resources to complete meal planning, shopping, and food preparation necessary to take in sufficient vitamins and minerals.
Supplements can help, but choosing the right supplementation among thousands of available options isn’t easy. Significant research shows that a large portion of pills and tablets pass through your digestive system intact, meaning you might not absorb the nutrients.
IV vitamin therapy offers a way to deliver essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream, without having to pass through your digestive tract. This means your cells are nourished within moments of your IV therapy session (at their full strength and in a known concentration).
Is IV vitamin therapy painful?
IV vitamin therapy shouldn’t be painful. At Sure Success Wellness Center, placing an IV is a simple, swift, and painless experience. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your vein, but there is no significant discomfort.
In fact, many people report feeling immediately refreshed and invigorated during and after their treatment sessions.
You’re encouraged to relax during your session. Some people choose to read, listen to music, or play a game on their phone. Others simply close their eyes and take a few moments to recenter and recharge.
