IM Vitamin Therapy (also known as Booster Shots) are Vitamin Injections administered directly to your body. We offer B12, B-Complex, Biotin, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Glutathione. These super vitamins provide (within seconds) key nutrients that your body thrives on, in order to optimize your wellness.
So IM Vitamin Therapy provides your body with up to 100% absorption rate instead of oral tablets which offer anywhere up to 25%. So IM vitamins are much more effective than oral tablets at giving the body what it needs to function at higher levels.
IM Vitamin Therapy is a safe and effective method to replenish vitamin deficiencies and nutrients in the body! All of our products are sourced from MHRA approved medical suppliers and highly regulated pharmaceutical companies. Our formulas are also regulated by GMC medical professionals and NMC Registered nurse prescribers to ensure proper dosing.
Most people can benefit from IM Vitamin Therapy. We do not treat anyone under the age of 18, or anyone who is currently pregnant or breastfeeding. Certain medical conditions such as heart, liver, or kidney problems can also disqualify you from receiving IM Vitamin Therapy. Patients undergoing chemotherapy are also not eligible to receive IM Vitamin Therapy unless authorized by your Medical Consultant. We will conduct an assessment of your medical history prior to beginning treatment at the Vita Lounge to ensure you are a candidate for IM VItamin Therapy.
Your visit starts off with a medical assessment and history obtained by the nurse. Your medical history will be reviewed. The nurse will then determine if you are a candidate for IM Vitamin Therapy and which vitamins will be good for you based on your feedback. If you are, IM vitamin therapy will be started and you can choose which add-ons you want from our menu. You will be in a private area with relaxing music. You will be sitting in a reclining massage chair. The nurse will then ask you where you would like your injection, you can either have it in the top of your arm (deltoid muscle) or in your glute, (at the top of your hip).
Most of our IM Vitamin Injections take around 15 minutes depending on which injection site you want to use and a consultation regarding your health history. After your initial consultation, the injections can be administered in minutes if you don’t have much time or just want a quick boost!
The frequency of treatments will depend on your individual health. For medically confirmed vitamin deficiencies to enhance your health and wellness, most clients begin with 1 treatment per week for 4 weeks to help balance vitamin and nutrient levels. Then they go to 1 treatment every 4 weeks. This is called a loading dose.
For those who just want a wellness boost, without a medically confirmed deficiency, once a month is sufficient.
However for Glutathione, we offer a course of 10 treatments, spread over a 5 weeks period. You would receive two treatments a week with at least a three day gap. If you really want to see amazing results, we recommend you complete the full course.
There is a quick sharp scratch during IM Vitamin Injections. It is so quick and over in seconds. Some of the vitamins may give you a little mild sting as the vitamin enters your body. But it settles down very quickly and is not long lasting.
Yes and no. It all depends on which vitamin you want. B-Complex already contains a smaller dose of Biotin and B12, so you wouldn’t be able to get them all together. However you could get a Biotin and a B12 individually, and they would offer a higher dose individually.
Glutathione works really well with Vitamin C and D.
