What are the benefits of IV therapy?

So you’re thinking about having IV therapy? Well, you’ve come to the right place, we’re letting you know all the benefits of IV therapy.

IV therapy is becoming increasingly popular as people notice the physical and mental benefits. Most people can have IV therapy, although there are some health conditions where it may not be suitable.

You should always choose to have the treatment administered by a professional. They will complete a thorough consultation with you to ensure it is safe. In addition, they will know how to safely give you the IV vitamins and monitor you during the process.

Our practitioner, Dawn Attewell, is fully qualified and has years of experience in the beauty industry. Her medical background means you can be confident that you’re always in safe hands at Therapy House.

What is IV vitamin therapy?

IV therapy means intravenous micronutrient therapy. During a treatment, a cannula is inserted into the body – usually into the hand or arm. This cannula is inserted carefully into a vein so that vitamins travel directly into the bloodstream.

A trained professional should always insert a cannula for you. They will take the correct precautions to reduce the risks of infection. An IV vitamin treatment usually only lasts for about 30 – 60 minutes. All you need to do is sit back and relax.

How does vitamin therapy work?

IV vitamin therapy works by bypassing the skin so that vitamins can be added straight into the bloodstream. Adding vitamins directly into the bloodstream means the body can absorb much more than it would when using a chewable method.

When using oral vitamins, the nutrients take time to travel through the digestive system and into the stomach. Using an IV method means that the nutrients enter your body much faster. It also allows you to absorb more nutrients.

Vitamin IV therapy cost

Your vitamin IV therapy cost will vary based on the vitamins you choose to have and the location you visit. Our Intravenous Drip Therapy start at £200 and vary based on the vitamins used.

We only use high-quality vitamins to ensure that you can experience the full benefits and leave feeling energised.

IV therapy benefits

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

These are some of the general benefits of IV therapy. The actual benefits will depend on the vitamins used. You can discuss your health goals with the practitioner, and they can advise you on the most appropriate IV therapy to suit you.

Give you more energy

If you’re feeling more tired than usual, you might be looking for ways to boost your energy levels, and amino acids may help. Amino acids work by turning fatty acids found in the body into energy. These vitamins can work well with a good sleep routine and a healthy diet.

Supports weight loss

Starting a fitness journey can be a challenge, but some IV fluids may help to support you with weight loss. Several acids used in IV therapy can help to boost your metabolism, burn fat and ensure your body is receiving enough of some essential nutrients.

Your fitness journey starts with you, and if you’ve not got the energy levels to perform how you want to, some booster may be recommended. A boosted mood may also help you to lose weight.


Dehydration can affect the body in many surprising ways. For example, it can contribute to lower energy levels and a lower mood. To combat this, we can use quality IV vitamins to boost your hydration and leave you feeling better.


Maybe you’re not feeling overly low in an aspect of your health but you fancy cleansing the system. These cleansing IVs include both vitamins and acids. These vitamin drips help to remove toxins in the body that can cause problems and promote ageing.

Some vitamins can also promote a fresher complexion, such as Vitamin C, which is known for its ability to make skin glow.

IV therapy advantages

Reduce illness and boost the immune system

By ensuring that you have the optimum levels of vitamins in your body, you can reduce general illnesses and improve your immune response. If you manage to catch an illness, you may find that your body helps you get over it much faster than it would normally with IV hydration therapy.

Can relieve symptoms quickly

Some people report changes immediately after IV drip therapy. For others, it may take a little longer before you notice a difference. This may be because you felt more tired or lower before receiving the essential vitamins.

How long do the results of IV therapies last?

The results will depend on your reason for having the IV drip. Some people find they require a course of IV drips to feel the benefit. Dawn will discuss this with you before you have the vitamin infusion.

There are plenty of health benefits to using IV therapy. An IV treatment can also benefit your cardiovascular health and help blood vessels to relax. It’s very important to use a qualified practitioner for the treatment. Using someone who is not qualified or experienced could lead to a higher risk of infection and other complications.
