When I came across this iv treatment on social media, I had to look twice.
Then I had to research, then I contacted them because, what the? This is something truly new to the Australian market in concept and health. But this is real and it is here, recently opened iv health clinic in South Yarra, I caught up with Shadi to find out more.
This is a totally new concept that is being introduced to the Australian market. Can you tell a little about how it will work?
Yes iv treatments are a very new concept being introduced into the Australian market. Intravenous vitamin therapy is huge overseas in countries like the US, Europe, and Middle East. In a nut shell, we administer vitamins and fluids into our patients via the intravenous route for purpose of improving wellness, boosting the immune system, improving skin elasticity, building collagen, and rehydrating the body. All our treatments are conducted under the supervision of a medical practitioner and administered by a registered nurse.
What happens in a typical iv treatment?
The client arrives at the clinic and has a consult- we go through their medical history to make sure that they are suitable for this type of treatment- then we work out what they want to achieve and choose the appropriate treatment for them. They then sit back and relax on our comfortable beds and our nurse inserts the cannula into their arm and connects the infusion- the client relaxes and we usually leave the room and dim the lights so they feel more comfortable and then we come back 30 minutes later when it ends, disconnect them and then they are off!
Where did you come up with the idea?
I had several infusions done in LA while i was on holiday last year- i was quite run down at the start of my trip and during it too with all the sightseeing. A friend recommended it, and i went and had it done and i felt amazing. When i came home i didnt have jet lag or anything! A while later i couldn’t stop thinking about it, and i knew it didnt exist in Australia. So i started doing my research and about 3 months later decided i would go ahead with it and make it available here! Here we are …
Will you get referrals from doctors or other practitioners?
Oh yes definitely. I have already had quite a few referrals from medical doctors treating patients with chronic fatigue, glandular fever and depression.
Do you think it’ll be popular with the public?
Yes. It has already been very busy for us and we’ve only been open a short time. We had a long and nasty winter this year with quite a bad flu season, and allot of people are just exhausted! They want to get their health back and get back outside doing the things they love- so our energy boosting infusions have been really popular. In addition to this, we have had allot of athletes and people training for marathons whose body’s become totally dehydrated- so they use the fluids to rehydrate and replenish themselves. Then we have the anti-aging infusions which detoxify you, leaving you with glowing skin! This has been very popular amongst both our male and female clients
