What makes IV Therapy beneficial?

IV therapy is the fastest and most effective way to deliver fluids, vitamins, and medicines throughout the body.

IV therapy bypasses the digestive system when you can’t keep fluids down, and takes everything direct to the bloodstream for immediate absorption.

IV therapy is perfect for:

  • Good Health
  • General fatigue
  • Hangovers
  • Athletes recovering or preparing for an event/competition
  • Flu/viral illness symptoms
  • Rejuvenate and hydrate your skin
  • Migraines
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Headaches
  • B12 Deficiency
  • Food poisoning
  • E Coli
  • Immune Boost
  • Cancer Patients

What is your IV Yellow? Is this a Banana Bag?

The B Complex (yellow) or B12 (red) that is added to IV changes the color of the Saline. Drinking alcohol depletes both fluids and Vitamin B1; we replace this to help you recover faster.

The Myers Cocktail is the same thing as a banana bag!
