Vail iV Wellness and Recovery
Erik from VVP sits down with husband and wife team Andrew and Kristin Pilecki from Vail iV Wellness and Recovery to get the skinnny on IV therapy for visitors, athletes or just someone that needs a boost!
Intravenous therapy is a safe and efficient way to deliver essential fluids, nutrients, and minerals directly into the bloodstream. By bypassing the digestive system, a full therapeutic dose is immediately active in your bloodstream. Because of this, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients are better absorbed resulting in faster and more effective results. IV therapy has long existed in hospital settings but its use in an at-home setting has recently become more well known through its regular usage by business professionals, professional athletes, and celebrities. You may have heard of IV therapy referred to as vitamin infusion therapy, a hydration drip, or IV bar.
