Injecting nutrients intramuscularly sidesteps this issue by delivering nutrients directly to the cells, feeding your body instantaneously for immediate utilization and last longer than orally ingested. Consider a vitamin injection a boost in your nutrition state and feeling the benefits often serves as a great motivator to make healthy changes in your diet and lifestyle to help you continue to feel better, move better and enhance your life performance.
Our shots are intramuscular injections, meaning the fluid gets injected into your muscle. The injections are administered in the upper outer quadrant of the gluteal muscle, just above the buttocks, don’t worry, no need to reveal too much skin.
Pain? Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, a shot typically causes little to no pain. It has a lot to do with how relaxed you are during the injection (mind + body), if you have just exercised (causing tense muscles) + how hydrated you are. We will instruct you on how to stand + breathe for relaxation for the most comfortable experience. Being well-hydrated (+ nourished) is beneficial. If you come in wearing heels, it may be beneficial to kick them off.
Come in Monday 11-4, Tuesdays 11-4, Thursdays 9-4, no appointment needed, just stop on by. You are also welcome to call ahead if you can’t make it during our regular injection hours so that we can accommodate your schedule.
