What is IV therapy, and how does it work?

IV therapy offers a direct method to deliver essential fluids, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients into your body.

While oral delivery—eating food, drinking fluids, taking supplements—passes nutrients through your digestive tract, this method can be inefficient. The nutrients can take several hours to reach your bloodstream and lose their potency through the digestive process.

Individuals with gastrointestinal sensitivities may also experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and other digestive symptoms.

IV therapy bypasses the digestive system and delivers nutrients directly into your bloodstream, allowing for 100% absorption. You feel their effects immediately without the uncomfortable side effects of oral delivery.

How can IV therapy benefit me?

IV therapy has many benefits depending on the nutrients included in your treatment. Popular benefits of IV therapy include:

  • Improved immune function
  • Increased energy
  • Boosted metabolism
  • Fewer headaches and migraines
  • Improved allergy symptoms
  • Mental clarity
  • Enhanced athletic performance

With IV therapy, the team at Aloha Integrative Health can replenish your vital vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients while delivering maximum hydration.

What can I expect from IV therapy?

IV therapy is a comfortable and therapeutic experience. Once you’re ready, the team inserts a catheter into a vein in your arm while you sit and relax. Each session takes about 30-90 minutes, depending on the specific fluids used. Since there’s no downtime, you can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment.

How will I feel right after IV therapy?

Individual experiences immediately after IV therapy can vary. While some people feel calm and relaxed, others feel energetic and recharged. Your health status, the reason for visiting, and the type of IV treatment you choose can affect how you feel after your session.

How long do the effects of IV therapy last?

The effects of IV therapy typically last a few days, and many people experience noticeable results for up to one week. You can return to Aloha Integrative Health for additional treatments to continue improving your health and wellness. Some people benefit from multiple sessions a week, while others may visit weekly, biweekly, or monthly.
