Don’t you wish you could do something concrete to boost your health and wellness? If that’s the case, you may have considered getting IV therapy; a way of delivering vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial substances directly into the bloodstream. But just how often can you get this sort of treatment, and what is the process like? At Optimal Health and Wellness in Pasadena, CA, we want to give answers to these questions and others so that you can make the best choices for your health.
The frequency of IV therapy depends on individual health needs and the specific treatment plan prescribed by a healthcare professional. Generally, for conditions like dehydration or nutrient deficiencies, IV therapy may be administered as needed until the desired health outcomes are achieved.
In some cases, individuals undergoing more specialized treatments, such as certain medical or wellness protocols, may receive IV therapy on a regular schedule, which can range from weekly to monthly. When you consult with us, we will be able to determine the appropriate frequency based on your own individual health goals and medical considerations.
The experience of getting IV treatment can vary depending on the type of therapy, individual tolerance, and the specific health condition being addressed. Here’s a general overview of what it feels like:
The process typically begins with the insertion of a small needle into a vein, usually in the arm. Some people may feel a brief, mild pinch during this step.
As the fluids or medications start flowing through the IV line, you may feel a cool sensation traveling up the arm. The rate at which the solution is administered can affect this sensation. Certain IV therapies, especially those containing vitamins or minerals, may cause a tingling sensation or warmth as the nutrients enter the bloodstream. This is often temporary and not uncomfortable for most individuals.
In many cases, individuals report feeling no particular sensations during the IV treatment, and the process is generally well-tolerated. It’s essential to communicate any discomfort or unusual sensations to the member of our staff administering the IV treatment, as they are there to ensure your comfort.
Some patients experience an overall sense of relaxation and rejuvenation during and after the IV session, especially with therapies targeting fatigue, immune support, or hydration.
The duration of the IV treatment varies depending on the therapy. Sessions can last from 30 minutes to a few hours. During this time, it’s common for patients to feel calm and at ease. We encourage patients to take this time to relax, whether that’s by reading, napping, or watching Netflix on the television provided.
After the IV session, individuals often report increased energy levels, improved hydration, and, in some cases, relief from symptoms associated with specific health conditions. Overall, many individuals find the experience of getting IV treatment to be well-tolerated, with the potential for positive health outcomes.
