Why Hydration Therapy?
Hydration therapy is the infusion of fluids supplemented with vitamins and nutrients administered directly into the bloodstream via a minimally invasive procedure. The entire process from start to finish takes just 45 minutes.
IV hydration is the fastest method to alleviate dehydration and has been used successfully for decades to bring rapid relief. Many people think of hydration therapy most commonly as a treatment for hangovers. But our clients seek relief from a wide array of cumulative dehydration symptoms including:
- Athletic exertion
- Fatigue and stress
- Jet lag
- Headaches and migraines
- Cold and flu symptoms
Our goal is to make sure our clients can take full advantage of the health benefits of hydration therapy in a serene, spa-like setting. Our licensed medical staff members complete infusions quickly so you can get back to your day with minimal down time. But we also want you to enjoy the experience. Your session is the perfect excuse to sit back and relax. If there are ways you feel we can better serve you, please let us know.
