Frequently Asked Questions
IV (intravenous) therapy is reliable for delivering nutrition and fluids directly into the bloodstream. Our IV vitamin infusions address nutrient deficiencies or physical conditions. Our wellness IV therapies are effective and contain the necessary minerals to address a variety of concerns, like fatigue, brain fog, or hydration.
IV therapy is 100% safe! Our skilled nurses here at the IV Garden will keep you safe and monitor you during your IV infusion. The concept underlying both IV hydration therapy and IV vitamin therapy revolves around administering customized cocktails of nutrients, vitamins, electrolytes, and antioxidants intravenously. The aim is to expedite the process of replenishing, rejuvenating, and detoxifying the body compared to traditional methods such as ingestion of water, maintaining a healthy diet, or taking medication orally.
A session at the IV Garden can take 30 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on how many infusions you are planning on getting. Before your visit, our nurses will let you know how long your visit will be. Our IV therapy treatments last a few days after the infusion, so we recommend you come in every one to two weeks to make sure your body is getting all of the nutrients it needs.
We recommend coming into our office for IV infusion therapy weekly. This is unique to every client, so we will come up with a comprehensive plan to ensure you are getting the most out of your treatments.
There is no downtime after your IV session! You can expect to feel hydrated, refreshed, and rejuvenated. There may be slight bruising around the injection site, but that is it. The benefits from your IV treatment should be felt in the days and weeks following.
Our IV vitamin infusions are focused on delivering essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These do not require prior authorization from a doctor or basic bloodwork. They are designed to address nutritional deficiencies, boost energy levels, enhance skin health, or aid in fatigue or hangovers. Our specialty IV infusions go beyond basic nutrient supplementation. They target particular symptoms and promote specific therapeutic outcomes. Some of our specialty IV infusions include intralipid infusions for fertility treatment, iron infusions, and NAD+ therapy. These services must be booked by calling (781) 652-0076.
Our home base is located in Lexington, MA. We can travel within a 20-mile radius, but if you live outside of that, we may be able to accommodate you. However, we can not travel outside of Massachusetts. If you want to book a mobile IV treatment in the Greater Boston area, call us at (781) 652-0076.
We always recommend IV infusions over oral vitamin supplements. This is because our IV treatments contain a higher concentration of nutrients and minerals than an oral tablet. These essential vitamins get absorbed faster through an IV versus those ingested orally.
The main differences between IV infusions and IM injections lie in the route of administration and absorption rate of the nutrients/substances being delivered. IV infusions involve administering fluids, medications, or nutrients directly into a vein using a needle and tubing connected to an IV bag or syringe. This allows substances to enter the bloodstream quickly and efficiently. IM injections involve injecting medication directly into a muscle using a syringe and needle. The medication is absorbed into the bloodstream through the muscle tissue. IV infusions are used for administering fluids, electrolytes, medications, or nutrients in cases where rapid absorption or precise dosing is required.
IM injections are used for administering medications that are formulated for intramuscular use, such as Vitamin B12, Toradol, Zofran, L-Carnitine, Biotin, our Amino blend, and more. This method ensures rapid absorption, promoting efficient therapeutic effects and quicker relief for various health conditions.
