In a perfect world, we would all get our nutritional needs met by food, but this world isn't perfect and we all know how hard it can be to consume highly nutrient-dense foods. In fact, when our bodies are requiring higher volumes of those nutrients (like when you're a new parent, juggling a busy job and personal life, planning a wedding or flying somewhere every other week), even if we could absorb 100% of the nutrients we're consuming, we just go through them too quickly. This high demand on our nutrient supplies depletes us, and can lead to trouble sleeping, muscle twitches, more wrinkles than we should have, migraines and sometimes even trouble getting pregnant.
Enter Intravenous Nutrition (IV Therapy) and our medical team to help you thrive in your busy life - not just get by.
Why You Should Consider IV Therapy
Revitalization and Destressing
In the world of fast-paced careers, busy lives and soial commitments it can be hard to keep your energy, mood and quality of life high. Our Intravenous Nutrition (IV Therapy) delivers powerful formulas designed to specifically support your “stress” glands (known as your adrenals). These powerhouse glands are responsible for creating and secreting adrenaline, cortisol, DHEA and noreadrenaline that work to get us through the day – but these glands are also highly dependent on specific nutrients. If you’re burning the candle at both ends than you require these nutrients at a much higher level and in an easily absorbed form.
Your skin can always use an extra boost. Our Rejuvenation IV Therapy Drips help to repair and support the health of your skin cells. For benefits like healthier pigmentation, less acne, a healthier complexion and better healing this IV is definitely for you.
If you’re operating (or you need to operate) at the highest level mentally, physically and emotionally our Performance IV Therapy Drip is designed to replenish the biochemical needs of your body. Because health should be individualized, not generic, we work with you to understand your nutritional demands before formulating the perfect drip for your unique needs. Our goals involve more energy, a more robust immune system and better mental clarity.
Fatigue, anxiety, depression and post-concussion syndrome can all wreck havoc on our mood. If you experience these mental diagnoses, our formulations included added amino acids to help improve the creation of the neurotransmitters required to keep you stable. If you're suffering from panic attacks, specific amino acids like glycine are used in the moment to promote calmness. If you experience depression, NAD IV Therapy is a new treatment yielding impressive results in a short amount of time, especially when combined with targeted vitamins, minerals and amino acids to help support the body’s natural production of mood-lifting neurotransmitters.
To achieve your peak athletic performance your body requires fluids, vitamins, minerals and amino acids; all which are carefully formulated for your sport, biochemistry and genetics. If you're a serious athlete or a weekend warrior ask us about how IV Therapy could improve your time, reflexes and recovery. If you are a professional athlete, ask us about how we stay compliant with all major regulatory bodies. Read about our favourite nutrient and molecule to improve your athletic performance here.
NAD IV Therapy (nicotinamide adenosine dinucleotide)
The nicotinamide adenosine dinucleotide (NAD) molecule is a powerhouse of mitochondrial health. For improved energy, mental clarity, recovery from chronic fatigue symptoms, anti-aging benefits and performance optimization, NAD is a key factor in ensuring your body is working how it should be working.

IV Vitamin C
Intravenous Vitamin C is the administration of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) into the system through a vein. This allows us to achieve a concentration of Vitamin C in the blood, which is unobtainable through conventional oral ingestion. Vitamin C has been found to be extremely safe and the risk of side effects are low.
Often used in integrative cancer treatment, has been shown to increase quality of life for cancer patients, while also decreasing side effects of conventional treatments. We also use IV Vitamin C to treat seasonal allergies and hayfever symptoms. For more information, visit our dedicated page on Vitamin C Infusions.
The Myers' Cocktail
The Myers’ Cocktail is a combination of Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, Vitamin C, magnesium and calcium administered intravenously. Our formulations are based off the original research on the Myers' Cocktail, but we believe that you should get the most out of your IV Therapy session, so we specialize in individual treatments - not just giving you the same formula that everyone else gets.
