IV Therapy

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is one of the wellness services Dr. Masterson offers at her practice. With IV therapy, she administers essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream through an IV line. 

The direct infusion of vital nutrients ensures your cells, organs, and tissues get the nutrients they need for optimal health and wellness. She uses IV therapy to restore nutrient balance, improve health, and boost your energy. 

Dr. Masterson takes an integrative and holistic approach to health and wellness. She combines traditional medical treatments with alternative therapies so you get all the care and tools your mind and body need to look and feel your best. 

Dr. Masterson also offers individual vitamin shots to address specific nutrient deficiencies, such as vitamin B12.  

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

Dr. Masterson’s nutrient-rich IV therapy offers many benefits. With IV therapy, Dr. Masterson can infuse high doses of essential nutrients without causing the stomach pain or gastrointestinal issues you may experience when taken by mouth. 

The IV therapy also rehydrates your body and helps you feel recharged, relaxed, and revitalized.

IV therapy may also fix nutrient deficiencies, improve recovery after an intense workout, or boost your immune health. 

Am I a candidate for IV therapy?

Dr. Masterson takes an individual approach to patient health. She may consider you a candidate for IV therapy if she has concerns about your nutritional health and risks of nutrient deficiencies.

You may also be a candidate for IV therapy if you’re searching for a natural therapy to optimize health and boost energy. 

What happens during IV therapy?

Dr. Masterson provides your IV therapy in a serene and relaxing environment. While you relax in the treatment area, she places an IV line in your arm, attaches the IV therapy bag, and starts your infusion.

IV therapy may take up to an hour depending on the type of nutrients and amount of fluids your body needs. Dr. Masterson reviews the details of your IV therapy during your consultation so you know what to expect.

Dr. Masterson’s vitamin shots are quick injections that take only a few minutes to administer.  There’s no downtime following IV therapy and you can resume your usual activities after your infusion.
