An Expert's Guide to IV Therapy
When thinking of IVs, visions of hangovers loom. But, the ladies of Restore + Revive assure us, IV Therapy is for more than hangovers or hospital stays – much more, in fact. Bypassing your body’s digestion + absorption functions, IV Therapy ensures vitamins + minerals target your body at a cellular level. And, with specially designed and custom cocktails, Restore + Revive IV Therapies can be tailored to your specific needs, like improving performance, boosting immunity, rehydrating and recovering.
Whether you’re heading into Restore + Revive’s ultra-relaxing treatment rooms or opting for their new, direct-to-you Mobile IV offerings, the experts at Restore + Revive dish their tips for maximizing the benefits of your IV Therapy as a part of their prescription for sustainable, holistic life-long wellness.
The dream of Restore + Revive began in 2016 when a Certified Nutritionist and a Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in Functional Medicine envisioned a place to offer personalized, professional and prolonged health + healing in the heart of Fort Worth – all under one roof. Founders – Taylor Dukes, MSN, FNP-BC and Dabney Poorter, CN, RN – maintain that IV Therapy is an important part of holistic wellness. And so, they’ve devised an IV Therapy + Shot Bar with 14 different fully customized IVs.
From the Energy Drip to Vitamin C Drip (and yes, even the Hair of the Dog Drip!), Restore + Revive offers combinations specially designed to meet client’s most requested goals + needs. The combinations, however, are fully customizable. Meaning their team of talented nurses can adjust the cocktail based on your system’s tolerances and needs.
Whether you’re opting for an Immune Boost Drip with a Booster or the Myers Drip Plus straight-up, here’s how to ensure you’ll maximize the benefits of your treatment at Restore + Revive…
Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
To maximize your body’s ability to detox and/or receive and metabolize vitamins and minerals in the infusion, arrive fully hydrated for your IV therapy session. Wondering what exactly qualifies as “hydrated?” Restore + Revive recommends your body weight in ounces of filtered water every day.
Know the Order
The ladies of Restore + Revive advise using the infrared sauna to open up your detox pathways, followed by an ionic foot soak that will gently pull toxins from the body. These two steps prime and prep your body effectively creating a clean slate for IV Therapy to do its best work.
Hit Happy Hour
Restore + Revive means the kind of happy hour that will leave you feeling your best, physically. Their fabulous Vitamin Shot Bar Happy Hour takes place every Thursday from 4pm to 7pm, with all Vitamin Shots 50% off.
Get It On the Go
While a visit to Restore + Revive’s ultra-soothing office is always a treat, don’t miss out on the wellness simply because you’re too busy. With mobile IV Therapy, you can get the full benefits of IV Therapy from the comfort of your own home. This, we hear, is perfect for wedding day prep!
The ladies of Restore + Revive need not remind us that the best investments – with the best payoff – is those we make in our health. And so, Restore + Revive has designed membership options to empower you to heal, optimize and thrive.
