IV therapy is becoming increasingly popular as an undeniable and simple way to boost wellness. It involves the administering of an IV bag full of just the right amount of vitamins and nutrients to help address a variety of concerns including fatigue, lingering symptoms of recent illness, and even the effects of hangovers. The mixture is infused right into the bloodstream, meaning you get all the benefits available in a fraction of the time it takes to supplement orally and without the reliance on intestinal absorption.
“The process is easy. Clients can come in, have the lights turned down, relax in the lounge chair, and within an hour most move on with their day feeling refreshed and restored,” says Meghan Hanna, operator of Prim Aesthetics, located in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
Previously a registered ER nurse for seven years and a current family nurse practitioner, Meghan Hanna began offering IV therapy in August of 2022. As a medical professional, it is she who mixes the bags and administers the IVs. “I noticed in my line of work how many patients would feel so much better just from the increased hydration from an IV.”
IV therapy can be enjoyed about once a month for wellness and maintenance or more often for specific health needs. “All vitamin mixtures are water soluble so there’s very little concern for excess supplementation or the need for labwork prior,” says Meghan, “I will take your vitals and review your health history to ensure you’re a good candidate and help advise which recipe is the best choice.”
Prim Aesthetics aims to make IV therapy as affordable as possible, with most mixes being under the $200 price range.
There are also wellness shots available, including the Methyl B12 priced at only $25. “It’s a methylated version of B12,” says Meghan, “30-40% of the population have a mutation of the MTHFR gene, making it difficult to metabolize synthetic folic acid or B12. Consuming synthetic versions can make various symptoms worse and lead to other health issues. So we use the most bioavailable version, as many people don't know they have this gene mutation.”
