What is IV therapy?
An intravenous administration of solution in the body. Generally, the IV solution is composed of a combination of minerals such as sodium, chloride, potassium, and a high-dose of vitamins.
What can I expect during an IV therapy service?
Intravenous of fluids is directly administered by a Registered Nurse through a catheter with a needle via a vein in your arm for the most effective absorption into the bloodstream. The flow of the fluid during the IV therapy is regulated. The intravenous technique bypasses the digestive system allowing faster and more effective absorption.
Pick a spot in your home or office where you are comfortable. You can sit, lie down, watch tv, catch up on your IG stories, or whatever makes you happy!
Is IV therapy safe?
IV therapy entails minimum risks. The most an individual can experience is a slight sting in the area where the needle is inserted.
What are the benefits of IV therapy?
Our body is composed largely of water. Around 55 percent body weight in adults is composed of water. When the amount of water decreases in the body, you will experience fatigue, lightheadedness, and weakness.
Getting an IV therapy can provide lots of benefits since it involves administering the essential fluids directly into the body through the veins.
A. FAST AND EFFECTIVE ACTION: IV therapy can quickly restore fluid imbalance inside the body. You can get quick and effective relief from dehydration, flu symptoms, loss of energy or a hangover. With an IV therapy, the fluids go directly to the blood bypassing the digestive system. Since the fluids go directly where they are needed and required, it results in quick recovery. You will feel REfreshed and REjuvenated within a matter of minutes.
B. HI-DOSE OF NUTRIENTS: Our bodies need a consistent amount or vitamins and minerals for optimal homeostasis and functioning. Antioxidants are vital for detoxifying the body and removing free radicals that are generated in our system. This helps in many ways including cleansing your body, boosting the immune system and overall energy, improving complexion and enhancing brain function as well
C. PREVENTIVE: Helps avoid wreaking havoc that would otherwise occur if the fluids were administered orally. IV therapy bypasses the gastrointestinal (digestive) system allowing a large amount of fluids to pump into the body without any complications. Your body gets what it needs quickly, and more effectively!
D. BEST CURE: Hangovers can result in severe dehydration. An IV therapy is the best REhydration cure for hangovers as it can quickly REstore the fluid imbalance.

What should I do after my service?
After rating your service in the app, it’s essential that you hydrate. If you received a massage, you should shower to clean any oils or lotions used on your body.
Is it normal for skin to become irritated after a massage?
Massage is known for releasing muscle tension and relieving stress, but sometimes people have reactions. This can stem from any of the following:
Sensitivity to massage oils, lotions, or even the detergent used on the massage table sheets can cause skin irritation. Again, a good shower is usually all it takes to alleviate this. If irritations persist, consult with your doctor.
Slight itching, tingling, or numbing feelings are common and normal when circulation is increased throughout the body. Throughout your massage, blood vessels and capillaries become enlarged and can cause these sensations. This typically fades within an hour.
Sometimes prescriptions heighten the nerve sensitivity and circulation in the body.
