About IV Therapy
IV therapy is when nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, are administered directly a patient's the bloodstream via IV (intravenous) drip. This wellness procedure at Hebe Medical Spa in Fishkill, NY is an innovative, powerful therapy that can help to treat a number of health problems. One of the primary benefits of IV therapy is the direct infusion of nutrients into the bloodstream. This make the treatment extremely effective, bypassing the issues that can accompany oral treatment, including upset stomach and lack of proper absorption. Lastly, the direct bloodstream incorporation means larger doses of nutrients can be delivered simultaneously without the fear of negative side effects. Hebe Medical Spa medical director, Dr. Zainab Mogul-Ashraf, will meet with you during a brief consultation to determine which nutrients would best deliver the results you seek.
