IV therapy delivers a combination of vitamins and minerals through an intravenous (IV) drip into your bloodstream. Administering nutrients directly into a vein bypasses your digestive system, allowing for greater absorption by your cells. Your body reaps more benefits, and you don’t have to swallow abnormally large or bad-tasting supplements.
Desert Moon Wellness uses IV therapy to treat various health problems, including:
Some people use IV therapy to promote recovery after long trips or to prevent the uncomfortable side effects of hangovers.
Desert Moon Wellness offers several types of IV therapy, including:
Desert Moon Wellness tailors IV therapy to each individual’s needs. After an exam and a discussion of your goals, your provider makes personalized drip recommendations to get you back to feeling your best.
IV therapy is an outpatient procedure that takes 60-90 minutes. You sit or lie down during treatment.
Your Desert Moon Wellness provider carefully inserts a needle into a vein in your arm. The needle is attached to a catheter connected to an intravenous drip bag. The drip contains vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that slowly enter your bloodstream.
When the drip enters your body, it bypasses your stomach and digestive system and is quickly absorbed by your cells. During IV therapy, you can read, nap, or watch TV. Once you’re finished, your provider removes the needle, bandages your arm, and provides recovery instructions.
IV therapy is safe and usually well-tolerated. Most people say they feel more energized and refreshed after treatment. Your arm can be slightly sore or red where the needle was inserted, but this discomfort should go away within a day or two.
