IV infusion therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, and/or other nutrients directly into the bloodstream, which allows your body to effectively absorb almost all of what was administered. Vitamins and minerals that are obtained orally must be digested in order to be absorbed and used by the body. Unfortunately, only a fraction of the nutrients end up being absorbed by the body. However, IV infusion therapy bypasses the digestive process in order to ensure that the maximum amount of nutrients are able to be absorbed. Not only that, but delivering these nutrients directly to the bloodstream means that their effects can be felt almost immediately.

Myers’ Cocktail IV Therapy
We offer the Myers’ Cocktail, one of the most popular intravenous injections available today. This is a vitamin infusion that is designed to:
- boost your immune system
- eliminate fatigue and reenergize you
- reduce the symptoms associated with seasonal allergies
- alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia, asthma, menopause and PMS
The Myers’ Cocktail is named after Dr. John Myers. He was an American physician who is known as the first person to use IV therapy (he started administering them back in the 1970s).
The Myers’ Cocktail is formulated with vitamin B, vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium. These are combined with sterile water for easy injection into the bloodstream, where they are more easily absorbed by the cells (and more specifically, the mitochondria). Once absorbed, our patients enjoy a super energy boost that generally lasts for days to weeks.
Frequently Asked Questions:
You may be a candidate for IV therapy if you are looking for a fast and effective way to boost your immune system or energy levels. However, individuals with certain health conditions or who are taking certain medications may not be ideal candidates. To determine if IV therapy is the right choice for you, schedule an appointment with one of our skin care professionals at any of our three Therapeutic Aesthetics locations: Toronto, Burlington, or Pickering.
At Therapeutic Aesthetics, our IVs are identical to those used in hospitals, however our experience is far more relaxing and rejuvenating. During your treatment, you will be able to relax in our calming medical spa setting and will have our attentive staff available for the duration of your treatment. Once the IV has been administered, treatments tend to last about 30-45 minutes.
How often you receive IV therapy varies on your individual needs. Some patients may benefit from weekly infusions, while others may not. In most cases, nutrient levels remain elevated for about 2-3 weeks after IV therapy, meaning that most patients can receive IV therapy approximately once every 2-3 weeks. However, you will need to discuss this with your provider to determine a treatment plan that is appropriate for you.
