IV Nutrition

Book Now

Intravenous nutrition, commonly known as IV nutrition, is an innovative medical procedure that nourishes your body from the inside out. It works by delivering essential vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients directly into your bloodstream via an intravenous drip.

Patients from throughout Rochester, Victor, Syracuse, Pittsford, Canandaigua, and surrounding New York communities visit Q the Medical Spa to discover the many benefits of IV therapy. By bypassing the digestive system, we help patients receive a higher concentration of nutrients, with the goal of improving overall health and well-being and alleviating daily symptoms such as fatigue and brain fog.

How Does IV Nutrition Work?

When we ingest food and supplements, our bodies do not receive their full nutrient value due to the digestion process. IV nutrition works by infusing a sterile solution of nutrients into your bloodstream through a small catheter inserted into your arm or the top of your hand. IV therapy allows for precise, optimized dosages and ensures that nutrients are distributed rapidly throughout your body.

The specific nutrient combination administered during an IV nutrition session can be tailored to your individual needs, addressing deficiencies, dehydration, or health goals such as immune support, energy enhancement, or recovery from illness.

What To Expect During an IV Nutrition Session

During an IV nutrition session, you will be comfortably seated. Our nurse will insert a small needle into a vein in your arm or the top of your hand to insert the IV catheter. No needle will remain in the vein during treatment. Once the IV drip is started, the process is generally painless, and patients can expect to be in the office for at least an hour.

While undergoing IV nutrition, you can relax, read, or catch up on work. Some people even take a nap during their session. Our nurse provider will ensure your comfort throughout the process. Afterward, you may experience an immediate boost in energy, but the full effects may take a few hours to become apparent.

What Is Recovery After IV Nutrition Like?

There is no recovery after an IV nutrition treatment. Regular activities can be resumed immediately.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from IV Nutrition?

After IV therapy, most patients feel refreshed and more energetic. Some report the disappearance of headaches or other symptoms if they were present before treatment.

Who Is a Candidate for IV Nutrition?

IV nutrition can be a valuable addition to your wellness routine, particularly if you suffer from nutrient deficiencies or are looking for a quick and effective way to boost your well-being. It is important to note that IV nutrition can help with symptom management, but it is not meant for disease treatment. Treatments are not recommended for those who have severe health concerns.
