Frequently Asked Questions

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a treatment whereby nutrients and vitamins are delivered to your bloodstream through an IV needle. It’s more effective than taking vitamins and nutritional supplements orally or injecting them into your muscles.

Island Lotus Health & Wellness offers Vitamindrip IV therapy. Vitamindrip has several options of IV drip available depending on your needs, including hydrating vitamins, energy-supplying vitamins, and cosmetic vitamin blends. The benefits of Vitamindrip’s many IV options are enjoyed by professional athletes, students, senior citizens, and business professionals.


What should I expect at my IV therapy appointment?

After assessing your medical history and desired results, your provider at Island Lotus Health & Wellness chooses the best Vitamindrip blend for you. Then, your provider inserts the needle into a vein in your arm. The needle is attached by a tube to the Vitamindrip bag, and the solution inside the bag flows into your vein slowly with gravity.

Your IV therapy appointment lasts for about an hour. Because the nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream, none are lost during digestion or absorption through your muscles. You’ll feel an improvement to your mood and/or health immediately.
