What is IV therapy?
Instead of relying on absorption through digestion, as with pills, IV therapy delivers vitamins, antioxidant compounds, minerals, and hydration directly to your bloodstream. This can greatly increase the bioavailability (absorption) of the nutrients within your system.
Pre-treatment testing can be used to determine the exact combination of nutrients that you need to address your concerns, conditions, and goals for treatment. If you are looking to boost your immune system, for example, you might receive a different therapeutic combination than if you want to elevate sports performance or increase your energy levels.
What are IVs?
IVs are typically associated with visits to the hospital. They are intravenous treatments used to get fluids introduced to the system for a variety of reasons. In hospitals, this is usually to administer medication and maintain hydration.
During this treatment, the professional inserts a thin tube directly into a vein and secures it into place which allows the treatment fluids to be delivered into the body.
What are the advantages of IVs?
IVs are a fantastic way to rapidly deliver fluids into your body. By being injected directly into the bloodstream, 100% of the target ingredients get introduced into the system rather than only the 50-60% that gets absorbed during the digestion process when taking an oral supplement. An IV drip can be completed in less than an hour, with effects being felt almost immediately.
Who performs the IV service?
A trained and licensed medical professional – namely a nurse or even a physician – will administer the IV therapy as agreed during your consultation.
What conditions does IV therapy treat?
Since it can be used for so many purposes, IV therapy has become more common. The most common uses include fatigue, jet lag, hangovers, muscle soreness, dehydration from illness, or headaches or migraines.
Different IVs are given for different maladies. For example, hangovers are only partially due to dehydration. There are other chemical disruptions occurring in the body due to the introduction of alcohol to the system, and the IV used to treat a hangover will address those particular issues.

What are IV bars?
Much like oxygen bars, IV bars (often called “drip bars”) are like a bar you’d go to with friends for cocktails or a coffee bar. You go to those places and order what you like. Same with an IV bar – you go and get the IV therapy you want, similar to a spa service. The Hub IV Bar, however, comes to YOU, usually within an hour or two depending your proximity. It’s easy and fast.
How often do I need treatments?
Many people choose to have IV treatments as needed. If you are feeling a little worn out or partied a bit too hard the night before, you might choose to take advantage of a treatment. If you are looking at easing symptoms of a chronic condition, you might instead choose to schedule regular sessions. Results vary and each treatment plan can be customized to suit your specific needs. Whether you want to receive treatment every once in a while or regularly, we have packages to suit your needs.
Who should get IV treatments?
There is no hard and fast answer to who could benefit from IV therapy. Because it is used for a wide range of conditions, it is best to talk to a professional to determine if it can help you. We do not accept all clients and will give you an honest answer as to whether you are a suitable candidate.
