What Is IV Therapy?

Definition, Benefits, Types

IV Therapy, also known as intravenous therapy, is the administration of delivering nutrients and hydration directly into the bloodstream for immediate absorption and use by the body.

IV Therapy is the fastest way to deliver nutrients throughout the body, because it bypasses the digestive system and goes directly into the organs, resulting in a 90-100% absorption rate (as opposed to only 10-30% possible orally).

One-third of UK workers experiencing anxiety, depression or stress (according to a PwC survey), it’s not a coincidence there is a growing need for preventative and therapeutic IV vitamin clinics, that help to boost energy levels and stimulate the immune system.

Nowadays, pretty healthy people can boost their wellness and energy levels from IV Vitamin Therapy.

The stress of modern living can lower your immune system and general wellbeing: IV Therapy can give that much-needed boost, making it a realistic and practical option.

While stress alone doesn’t cause us to catch a cold or a flu virus, it definitely weakens the immune system’s ability to respond to viruses, leaving us more vulnerable to infection and illness.

So, if you want to boost your immunity, replace lost fluids and electrolytes after a boozy night out or support recovery from high-performance athletics – IV Vitamin Therapy can help to restore your body’s nutrient levels to their optimal state.

Stress is the most common reason people come to us for the treatment. The majority of our clients choose the Energiser Drip and Ultimate Immunity System Drip treatments to help them feel energised and boost their immunity.

Even though the process of IV therapy involves placing a needle into the arm or elsewhere on the body, the slight discomfort is only felt when the skin is first punctured.

The rate and quantity of intravenous fluid given depends on each client’s medical condition, weight and age.

A qualified person will then disinfect the skin over the injection area, which is often on your arm, locate a vein and insert an IV catheter.

Once the catheter is in place, the procedure will take between 30-120 minutes depending on the type of the treatment IV DRIP.

During this time the only thing you need to do is relax. You can watch TV, read a magazine or even nap.

An IV Drip is a type of intravenous treatment that is slowly infused into the bloodstream via a plastic catheter inserted into the vein.

To administer an IV Drip, a small plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein using a needle that is then quickly removed once the plastic tube is advanced into the vein.

IV Drips are performed for 30-120 minutes and an average of 250-1000 ml of fluids are injected per session.

During a drip, clients can read, work or relax.

Seeing as an IV drip is the quickest way to deliver fluids and medications into the bloodstream they are usually made up of the following:

Saline solution: A sterile solution of water and salt that is used to provide hydration and maintain electrolyte balance in the body.

Glucose solution: A sterile solution of water and glucose (sugar) that provides energy to the body.

Nutrients: IV drips can also contain a variety of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are required for the body to function properly.

One of the main benefits of IV Therapy is fast, more effective results without gastrointestinal side effects, absorption issues or loss of potency.

The process allows the nutrients to go right into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and allowing you to have more energy, think more clearly, and enjoy a better mood.

The benefits will differ depending on the overall health of the client, and how many treatments are done. Some reported benefits include:


  • Stronger immunity (warding off a cold or flu)
  • Enhanced mood
  • Increased sports recovery time
  • More energy
  • Improved concentration and mental focus
  • Increased calmness and relaxation
  • Balanced blood sugar
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Improved jet lag
  • Improved hangover
  • Reduced instances of migraines
  • Boosted fertility and hormonal imbalance
  • Improved complexion
  • Reduced signs of ageing

Typically, the effects become fully noticeable after the 12 – 24 hours after infusion, although, many people report feeling better right after treatment.

The effects last for 8 days to 3 weeks depending on the condition, cocktail and type of IV Therapy.

The IV Therapy cost varies between £40-£450 per session depending on the cocktail. However, the majority of treatments are between £150-£250.

Today, the administration of intravenous fluids via IV infusion is common and generally safe, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing, which can increase the risk of adverse effects.

If you have any medical condition, it is always advised to consult with your doctor prior to treatment to avoid any complications.

Also, because of the puncture of your skin – there’s a risk of infection. Although the risk of skin or blood infection is unlikely, it’s important to only consult with a qualified person, who ensures a safe and healthy vitamin infusion.
