Intravenous vitamin therapy (IV therapy)
Intravenous vitamin therapy (IV therapy) is becoming extremely popular, as everyone from Hollywood celebrities to professional athletes swear by its health benefits. IV therapy has been used in hospitals for many years, but naturopathic doctors and nurse practitioners are now enlisting various high-dosage vitamin therapies to strengthen immunity, improve energy, and even stave off the effects of aging.
Today, many people are under perpetual stress, don’t get enough sleep or adequate nutrients, and constantly feel tired, run-down or in pain. IV therapies are an excellent way to address many deficiencies in vitamins and minerals, while simultaneously reaching optimal nutrient levels and providing adequate hydration. Most people take vitamins and supplements orally, but even at optimal digestion, most nutrients aren’t absorbed at more than a rate of 50-60%. By introducing vitamins and minerals intravenously, your body is able to absorb 100% of these nutrients.
IV therapy replenishes fluids and electrolytes as well. Once your infusion begins, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and other vital nutrients flood your body and begin to nourish at the cellular level. Because digestion is bypassed, your body is nourished and repaired at a faster and more effective rate.
Many people can benefit from IV therapies. It can be used to treat a variety of ailments from migraines, headaches, colds and seasonal allergies to fatigue, hangovers and even some chronic diseases. Let’s look at a few of the IV therapies available at Sound Shapes Spa.

Detox / Anti-Aging Therapies
Premature aging is due to a number of factors, often showing up in the form of skin elasticity, weight gain, depression, skin problems, and fatigue. You can slow down the aging process through proper sleep, exercise and a healthy diet. However, these are not always adequate to fight the aging battle. Even if you eat well, your body might not be absorbing the vitamins and minerals needed to slow down aging.
