We use a tiny 24-gauge needle, so starting the IV just involves a quick poke. When the needle is withdrawn, a soft catheter remains in place for the remainder of the treatment. The infusion is more comfortable than an ordinary blood draw.
Depending on the infusion formula and the desired result, you may experience localized warmth and either an increase in energy or a relaxation effect. An improved sense of calm and well-being accompanies many infusions, especially those with a Vitamin C or Magnesium boost. Many of our patients report subsequently improved sleep.
The length of treatment depends on the nutrient mix and concentration being infused, and ranges from 20 minutes to an hour.
