IV Therapy

Also known as intravenous micronutrient therapy, IV Therapy delivers a potent mix of vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream. 

Unlike the slow pace of traditional nutrient absorption, this method ensures your body gets these essential nutrients quickly and in higher doses, helping you change your feeling in less time!

What Is IV Therapy?

IV Therapy is a powerful way to deliver essential nutrients and hydration straight to your bloodstream, ensuring immediate absorption by your body.

It stands out as the quickest method to nourish your body, boasting an impressive 90-100% absorption rate, much higher than oral methods. 

Originating as a lifesaver during World War I, it gained prominence in the 1960s with Dr. John Myers' vitamin and mineral cocktail (available here!), marking the beginning of modern vitamin IV therapy.

Key Benefits of IV Therapy

This versatile treatment offers numerous benefits, from hangover relief and athletic recovery to bolstering immunity and easing digestion issues. It hydrates your body effectively, which is key to why many feel revitalized after treatment. 

Additionally, for those with digestive challenges that hinder nutrient absorption from food, IV Therapy provides a direct way to supplement essential vitamins, ensuring your body gets the nourishment it needs to thrive.

What to Expect During an IV Therapy Session

At Modern Acupuncture, you'll experience medically supervised Nutritional IV Therapy tailored to your health needs. Our customized IVs, packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, offer a direct route to optimal health. 

Within about 45 minutes, these nutrients are delivered intravenously, ensuring maximum absorption and hydration while maintaining your body’s electrolyte balance. It’s a smooth and efficient process designed to quickly and effectively change your feelings of tiredness, drowsiness, dehydration, and more.

 Is IV Therapy safe?

Absolutely! IV Therapy is a safe procedure when performed by a qualified healthcare professional. Before your treatment, you'll typically undergo a health assessment to ensure IV Therapy is suitable for you. The solutions used in IV Therapy are generally well-tolerated, and the process is carried out under sterile conditions to minimize any risk of infection. However, as with any medical procedure, there are minor risks, such as bruising or discomfort at the injection site.

How long does an IV Therapy session take?

The session should take about 45 minutes and can also be combined with acupuncture in the same time frame.

How frequently should I do IV Therapy?

None of our vitamins contain toxins you might find in medication, so you won’t experience an overdose on anything. Theoretically, if you are healthy, our IV Therapy is safe for daily use. However, most people don’t put that type of demand on their body to need it daily. Most people will benefit from treatments spaced 2 weeks apart.

What should I do after the treatment?

There are no restrictions after your treatment. We recommend the same behaviors as after acupuncture treatment: eat healthy, stay hydrated and get enough rest.

How soon should I feel the effects of IV Therapy?

Depending on your nutritional and hydration status you may see dramatic effects right away. If you get IVs regularly the results will feel less dramatic as you achieve optimal hydration and nutrition.

 If I take a supplement or it’s in my daily multi-vitamin, why would I get a shot or IV?

Many people have trouble with nutrient absorption due to the presence of intestinal inflammation, first-pass absorption, or poor gut health. Injecting nutrients intramuscularly or by IV sidesteps this issue by delivering nutrients directly to the cells, allowing your body to immediately use the nutrients.

Why would I do Acupuncture and IV Therapy together?

By adding Vitamin IV’s to your Acupuncture treatment, the blood is immediately enriched and aiding the body’s ability to deliver pure vitamins, minerals, and amino acids for the most systemic effect. Combined with your Acupuncture treatment, IV therapy supports increased immunity, rehydration, and overall health and wellness, in addition to addressing your pain and stress.

Is IV Therapy suitable for everyone?

IV Therapy can offer numerous health benefits, but it may not be suitable for everyone. Certain medical conditions, medications, or allergies might affect your suitability for specific types of IV Therapy. That's why we conduct a health assessment before any treatment to ensure that IV Therapy is safe and beneficial for you. 

As a patient, what can I do to make my treatment more effective?

To make your treatment as effective as possible, consider these tips:

  • Complete patient forms online before your appointment to save time.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to allow your licensed acupuncturist easy access to acupuncture points.
  • Arrive at least 5 minutes early to settle in, choose your tea, and silence your phone.
  • Openly share your wellness concerns and goals with your acupuncturist.
  • Relax during your session; it's perfectly fine to fall asleep!
  • Take your acupuncturist's lifestyle advice seriously and incorporate it into your daily routine.
  • Remember, acupuncture benefits are cumulative and optimal results require time and consistency!
