What is IV therapy?
You might be familiar with intravenous (IV) therapy for its use in hospital settings. The approach involves using a piece of thin medical tubing to deliver fluids directly into a vein.
IV therapy allows medical staff to deliver a controlled volume of medication directly into your bloodstream without navigating your digestive tract. This approach works the same in nutrition and wellness applications.
At Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy, IV therapy helps boost your nutrition safely and reliably.
What are some IV therapy benefits?
One of the benefits of IV therapy is the immediate hydration boost you achieve during your sessions. Most people go through their daily lives in a state of mild dehydration. IV therapy provides instant hydration improvements that you can feel right away.
IV therapy is also a highly customized option. Your practitioner can administer many different combinations of nutrients during your session, so each treatment is designed to suit your specific needs.
Some of the benefits of IV therapy include:
- Weight loss support
- Skin improvements
- Energy boost
- Immune system enhancement
- Improved athletic or fitness performance
- Hangover recovery
- Enhanced cognitive function
Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy offers B-complex and glutathione IV therapy. Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) infusion helps boost metabolic function, and the PlenishIV™ nutrient cocktail includes numerous B-complex vitamins and other nutrients to support energy production and enhance wellness.
Is IV therapy a painful process?
In the hands of a highly skilled practitioner, IV therapy is not a painful experience. Your provider cleanses your skin before using a thin needle to place the medical tubing directly within a vein on your hand or wrist.
A small piece of medical tape holds the tubing in place, and the other end connects to a bag filled with your customized IV solution. This solution enters your bloodstream one drip at a time while you rest. Many people report feeling refreshed and renewed even before the treatment ends.
Removing the tubing takes just a couple of seconds. There is no need for any recovery, and you can resume normal activities immediately after your visit. Call or click to schedule a visit when you’re ready to learn more.
