IV TherapyIn Palo Alto

Vitamin Therapy

Even when eating right and exercising, our bodies can become depleted of vital nutrients we need to remain at peak performance.

Our Palo Alto IV therapy, or vitamin therapy, can help supply you with ample antioxidants, amino acids, electrolytes and other valuable nourishments needed for optimal mood and constitution. Our treatments are personalized to ensure you get the most benefit from your session.

What is IV therapy and how does it work?

Vitamin drips work by intravenously replacing your body's fluids, electrolytes, and vitamins lost due to heavy sweating, overheating of the body, heavy alcohol consumption, and more. A vitamin infusion can also help with weight management by increasing energy levels and boosting your metabolism. Our custom IV blends can be added to nearly any Total Glow treatment without adding any additional time to the length of your treatment.

What vitamins and fluids does IV Therapy include?

The exact combination of nutrients, fluids, and minerals each client receives is personalized to their needs and varies not only between each client but even between an individual client’s visits as their needs may change. For example, some clients may want an extra boost to their immune system during flu season or before traveling. Clients training for a marathon may shift their treatment to prioritize muscle recovery. Or, clients who are pregnant may use IV Therapy to alleviate symptoms like morning sickness. While the exact combination varies, the most common components of IV Therapy include saline, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, and antioxidants.

Am I a good candidate for IV therapy?

A complement to an already healthy lifestyle

Most clients who are in good physical and mental health can benefit from vitamin infusions, although IV therapy is not a substitute for eating well and taking care of your body on a regular basis. It can only act as a complement to an already healthy lifestyle. Once you undergo a private consultation with our Bay Area team, you will be able to decide whether this procedure is right for your goals. Nutritional testing may help to determine your unique needs.

What can I expect during the treatment?

We will consult with you to determine the best vitamin infusion to meet your needs. Then, an IV line will be inserted into your arm (you may feel a slight pinch). During the treatment, vitamins and nutrients will slowly drip from the IV line into your bloodstream to help the body begin healing itself. This may take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour depending on the type of infusion. Our Palo Alto IV treatment is very comfortable, so sit back and relax until it’s complete!
