What if you could revitalize your body from the inside out with a 30 minute minimally invasive treatment? We are bombarded with the latest and greatest fad diets and meal plans to look and feel our best but often the basics are overlooked. Vitamins and minerals are essential for our bodies to function at their optimal level. The fastest way to get vitamins and minerals in the body is with IV Therapy. It is a treatment that will infuse your body with those essential vitamins and minerals to allow you to reach your peak.
What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous Therapy is a treatment where a combination of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are directly infused into your system through an IV. This treatment has been around for over fifty years. Oral ingestion only allows for 10-25% of absorption of these vitamins versus almost 100% absorption when administered through an IV. It is important for the body to have and maintain the proper level of these vitamins especially after high stress events like surgery and illness. IV Therapy in Northern Virginia is one of the fastest growing procedures due to the search for a quick preventative method against Jet Lag.
What Can IV Therapy Treat?

We suggest IV Therapy in Northern Virginia because in today’s fast paced society, fatigue can be a major inhibitor to success. Fatigue can be due to a number of causes such as poor diet or infection.

Recovery after Surgery
It is imperative for your body to have the proper level of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to enable recovery and healing after surgery. IV Therapy is an excellent way to ensure your body has those essential nutrients. Combinations to speed up overall recovery and increase immunity can include Lactated Ringers, high doses of Vitamin C, and a combination of Vitamin B.
Enhanced Athletic Performance
IV Therapy can improve the way the body performs by enhancing overall hydration and ensuring the proper vitamins and minerals are available for optimum metabolism function. It can also reduce post work-out recovery time by flushing out lactic acid and decreasing muscle soreness. Common preparations include high dose Vitamin C and B complex.
Slowing the Aging Process
As we age, our collagen stores decrease rapidly. Collagen is necessary for healthy appearing skin and the reduction of skin aging. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant that helps to eliminate toxins in the body, protects the collagen fibers and elasticity of the skin. It can also decrease melanin that is responsible for sun/age spots. Intravenous Therapy to fight the inevitable signs of aging can include a combination of Glutathione, vitamin B complex, vitamin C and normal saline.
Revitalizing After Long Travel, Jet Lag and Hang Over
The body typically suffers significant dehydration and a weakened immune system after long travel and alcohol consumption. IV Therapy can replenish that lost hydration and replace those vitamins and minerals that have diminished leaving you feeling refreshed and energized.
What is your IV Therapy Menu?
Our IV Therapy treatments start with a base of 500-1000ml of normal saline or Ringer’s lactate. This is a great hydrating option. Before adding any other nutrients, the base solution will give you a boost of fluids and minerals. Your IV Therapy may include one or more vitamins. From our a la carte menu, both you and your provider can choose the right combination for your infusion to improve health and wellness as efficiently as possible. We customize a combination of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants that can be added to the base for your unique and individual needs. These include:
