IV Drip Therapy

IV Therapy in Melbourne, FL

Here at Essentials Medispa and Salon, we offer customized IV drop therapy, designed to optimize your health and wellness. Our IV nutrient therapy has helped a range of patients with concerns from asthma to immune disorders to heavy metal toxicity and cancer.

IV Nutrient Therapy is the fastest, most effective way to optimize your vitamin, nutrient, and mineral levels to replenish your health and revitalize your entire body rapidly. IV nutrient therapy offers a new path to treatment for many patients, whether they have difficulty with oral dosing or suffer from malabsorption of vitamins and minerals. Or they need a quick and large dose of vitamins and nutrients to boost immunity and increase levels of energy. IV nutrient therapy offers improved absorption and bioavailability by increasing nutrient absorption rates from 18% (when taken orally) to 100% (when taken intravenously). This type of treatment has been shown to improve the quality of life and elevate most symptoms in patients struggling with inflammatory responses to allergies, food intolerances, gastric bypass, and gastritis. 

Benefits of IV Therapy

Chances are, if you think about an IV drip, your first thought is probably not about detoxing or boosting your energy. But that’s exactly what you can get from today’s IV therapy.

Yes, IV drips are still used in the hospital to replenish fluids or provide nutrients and medications to patients, but IV therapy serves a completely different, often unexpected, purpose.

IV therapies like the ones offered at Essentials Medispa & Salon are administered in a private room (when available) while you relax and listen to music. Lay back in comfort with a pillow and cover up with a blanket while the infusion specialist sets you up with customized IV vitamin cocktails and intramuscular nutrient shots to help you reach your goals.

Maximize your health, boost your energy, prevent an illness or reverse a disease you’re battling – these are just a few of the benefits you can receive from an IV therapy session.

How IV Therapy Nourishes Your Body

The traditional way of nourishing your body is by eating healthy foods and taking vitamin supplements. Unfortunately, pulling vitamin and mineral nutrients from the foods we eat is a very complicated process. It involves multiple steps and there are many issues that can get in the way and interrupt the natural flow.

In order for the nutrients in the food to get to your blood so it can be circulated throughout the body, the food must be digested first and absorbed into your system. This requires proper gut health, which many people are simply unable to maintain. Add to that the fact our foods today don’t contain the same amount of nutrients they did in years past, so even eating clean and healthy food is not enough to ensure proper nutrition and nourishment.

That is why IV therapy is a great way to nourish your body and get the nutrients you may be missing. IV vitamin therapy completely bypasses the digestive system and deposits vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients directly into the bloodstream where they can be 100% absorbed. This allows your body to be flooded with critical nutrients in much larger doses than you could take orally and allows for nourishment at the cellular level. This gives you overall improvement in your nutritional status and can provide relief for many symptoms of acute and chronic illnesses.

Who Can Benefit from IV Therapy?

Just about everyone can benefit from the efficient, increased nourishment of IV vitamin therapy. In today’s hectic, fast paced life, almost everyone is suffering from something. It may be a lack of sleep, chronic stress, physical pain, inadequate nutrition or just constantly feeling tired and rundown.

IV therapy addresses all these issues and more. There are therapies designed specifically for nutritional deficiencies, while others work to reduce stress or combat illness or fatigue.

Taking IV therapy can be administered proactively if you’re trying to maintain an optimal level of wellness, with proper nourishment and increased stamina and energy. It can also be used in the treatment of chronic conditions, such as asthma, cancer, depression, drug addiction, lupus, as well as acute conditions, such as headaches, fatigue, colds/flus, allergies, morning sickness… the list goes on.

Additional Benefits of IV Therapy

Comparing IV infusions to other forms of nutritional therapy, IV drips come out on top. They are convenient and fast acting, gentle on the digestive system and more effective than oral solutions.

IV therapies also provide a wide range of overall general health benefits, including:

  • Reduced anxiety and stress
  • Fewer symptoms of allergies, diabetes, erectile dysfunction and PMS
  • Weight loss
  • Improved hydration and skin quality
  • Improved mood, energy, stamina and metabolic functions
  • Shortened recovery time and optimal performance for athletes
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Support for healthier sleep patterns

From hangover relief to anti-aging skin boosts to the world-renowned Myers Cocktail, IV therapy is worth looking into for maximizing your overall wellness. To learn more about how IV therapy may benefit you, contact Essentials Medispa & Salon today.

The Spa – Not Just for Women Anymore

A trip to the spa is one of the best ways to have a great time, but boys, you can get in on the fun, too. The spa, once thought of as a women’s retreat, is starting to see quite the diversified guest list. From women of all ages, teens, couples, and men. Yes, men. Men taking a trip to the spa is the new norm. According to the International Spa Association, 47 percent of spa clientele are men, compared to 31 percent just a decade ago. Nothing to do with men getting in touch with their feminine side or the return of Queer Eye on Netflix, men simply deserve a little pampering too. Below are five med spa services that every man should try.

  1. Manicure

In a professional setting, it’s important to keep a neat appearance. No need for the fancy stuff; a quick manicure provides necessary filing, a flash massage, and a nail buff. Soar through presentations and shake everyone’s hand with confidence. Chronic nail-biter? Keeping well-manicured nails can help you quit that habit.

  1. Pedicure

It isn’t about soaking in bubbles and picking out a colorful polish. Pedicures have a lot of therapeutic qualities that can be particularly beneficial for men. If you work on your feet or are athletic, your feet can be quite sore. They may also develop calluses, skin rashes, athlete’s foot or just hurt. Keeping an eye on them is essential. Regularly taking care of your piggies is a great way to do that.

  1. Facial

A facial is a specialized cleaning and restoring treatment that deep-cleanses and conditions your skin to restore smoothness and suppleness. Facials can help enhance the skin’s moisture and elasticity, giving you a smooth and healthy complexion. Don’t consider it high maintenance, just maintenance. A professional can clean your face much better than you can. Men generally have coarser skin, larger pores and more oil on their faces, leaving them with an extra need for some skin TLC. Getting regular facials can also help you achieve that perfect shave!

  1. Massage Therapy

Nothing relaxes the body as thoroughly as a professional massage. It can help reduce knots, relieve stress, chronic pain and lower blood pressure. If you are lucky enough to not need help with any of these issues, don’t worry, massages still feel amazing. When performed regularly, they can help reduce the chance of developing these problems. There are a wide variety of techniques used; some can even restore circulation of oxygen to alleviate repetitive head and neck pain.

  1. IV Drip Therapy

IV drip therapy isn’t just for celebrities anymore. Anyone can utilize this life-altering experience with just a little drip. It’s a great way to maintain optimum health. The list of health benefits is endless. There are a variety of cocktails that each have their own strengths. IV drips can improve mental clarity, fatigue, immunity and the best hangover cure you will ever try.

Whether you’re a businessman or construction worker, there is something for everyone at a medical spa. So, put your “I’m too manly” mentality behind you, and make a date at the spa. You won’t regret it!
