If you walked past the IV Wellness Boutique in Yaletown you would probably do a double take. It might be a little strange to see people sitting in big comfy massage chairs with IV 's in their arms in the front window but this therapy is becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. IV therapy is no longer used just in hospitals and can be a beneficial preventative treatment to keep you in tip top shape.
IV Therapy is high dose vitamin, mineral and amino acids that go straight into the bloodstream for optimal absorption.
Benefits of IV Therapy
Hydration (good for athletes or hangovers!!)
Boosts immunity to help fight colds and flus
Increases energy and boosts mood
Aids in weight loss
Helps to balance hormones
My favourite IV was one called "Eternal Youth" which has glutathione in it. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that helps to detoxify the liver. I always felt recharged after an IV and the relaxing environment made you feel so comfortable and cozy. It's like going to a spa!
Chilling in the private theatre room! So relaxing.
A couple other of my favourite boosters were the b12 or one for weight loss that contained MIC, which stands for methionine, inositol and choline, a powerful combo that helps with fat burning.
I had the pleasure of working in the beautiful wellness boutique over the last 7 months along side some wonderful ladies who are so passionate about wellness. They have the best naturopaths, an acupuncturist and osteopath so get in and book an appointment with the team. They are having an open house this weekend so pop in and check it out. You can check out all their services here. They usually have cake too, so bonus!
