IV Infusion Therapy. This is the newest health trend to hit the market in major metropolitan cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and now South Beach. You ask, what exactly is this therapy, and so did I! IV Infusion Therapy is just as it sounds, it is an IV therapy that takes place at a med spa under the supervision of a Board Certified Physician, and provides IV infusions that rapidly counter the stress and free radicals on your body, fatigue, dehydration and the effects of a hard partying or exhausting lifestyle.
There are several different kinds of IV infusions, such as the dehydration infusion, the hangover infusion, the sunburn infusion, the vitamin infusion and the hard partying infusion. The cost ranges from $125.00 – $200.00, and the people I have talked to that have tried these therapies swear by them. Had this trend been released a decade ago, I am confident I would have been one of their best clients. However, in the days of going to bed at 10:00 pm, and a wild night consisting of a few drinks with friends, I wonder if I am the ideal customer. With that being said, I am still very intrigued. I have thoroughly researched the pros and cons of Infusion Therapy, and have to admit, there doesn’t seem to be any cons.
Recently, I was invited to the opening party for South Beach’s new Infusion Therapy Med Spa. As I scanned over the menu at Reviv, I noticed they offer a variety of services in addition to the IV Infusions, such as B12 and Lipotropic injections. Boy, how things have changed in the last decade. No longer are the days of vitamin water and hangover pills. Now, you can get a quick fix in a matter of minutes.
So, is IV Infusion Therapy another passing fad? Or is this therapy that Rhianna, Jay Z and Simon Cowell partake in here to stay? Would you fork over an hour of your time, and $150.00 to quickly cure that horrible hangover, or have you already? Before I guinea pig myself for this new trend, like I have for so many others, I would love some quality feedback.
