IV Hydration for Summerfest Performers and Fans, powered by IVme
IVme is hydrating Summerfest performers, production crews, sound + lighting technicians and hospitality staff again this year in the IVme Backstage IV Recovery Lounge at the Briggs & Stratton stage. PLUS we’re helping concert-goers avoid festival fatigue and dehydration with specials at our Historic Third Ward IVme Milwaukee center just a few blocks from the festival grounds.
Why IV Hydration Therapy?
Music tours and festivals are demanding, both physically and mentally. If you’re working long days and nights, it’s only natural you’re going to experience exhaustion. And if you’re not sipping enough water throughout the day, dehydration brings more symptoms – fatigue, headache, muscle aches, dry mouth, dizziness, lack of mental clarity and concentration.
When you reach even mild levels of dehydration, productivity is reduced by 50% to 75%.
IV therapy—or hydration therapy—is an easy way to ensure you’re consuming enough fluids to keep you hydrated and operating at optimum health. Our therapy treatments intravenously deliver fluids, medications, vitamins and other nutritional supplements directly into your bloodstream. Your IV solution is ultimately tailored to your symptoms and health goals and could include one or a combination of these: B12, B complex, Glutathione, Vitamin C, plus meds such as Zofran for pain or Toradol for nausea.
IV hydration is the fastest way to recover from dehydration and restore your natural baseline of vitamins. As far as, “how does it work”, IV hydration delivers fluids and vitamins directly to your bloodstream, which means you’re able to almost immediately absorb 100% of the fluids and nutrients and take larger quantities of them. For example, with Vitamin C, you can only take 5 grams by mouth because it needs to break down in your stomach and liver. But, through an IV, we can administer 50-75 grams of vitamin C. This high dosage gets to work in your system right away, immediately alleviating the symptoms of dehydration and leaving you feeling energized and focused.
You’ll feel the benefits of the IV for 1 to 2 days, but it can also reboot your system which means your immune system is stronger and will prevent illnesses that could keep you down for weeks.
All of our therapies are administered by experienced, board-certified physicians, registered nurses and certified medics. And if you’re someone who’s afraid of needles, not to worry! Our nurses and medics are highly experienced and very gentle. We also have a spray that we use to ensure your comfort.
Why would I get an IV instead of drinking water?
You could guzzle water if you have the time and don’t mind water sloshing around in your stomach for hours. Many of our IV patients opt for an IV instead of guzzling water because they don’t have hours or days to rest and recover; they need to be at their best immediately to keep pace with their demanding schedules.
If you’re The best plan is to take care of yourself. Sip water or a low-sugar sports drink throughout the day, at least the recommended amount (divide your weight in half, drink that amount in ounces; if your 200 lbs, you should drink about 100 ounces a day) and a little more if it’s hot or you’re physically active.
- If you fall behind on your fluid intake and start to experience mild symptoms of dehydration – lack of focus, headache, tiredness – come in for an IV.
- If you’re in the middle of an exceptionally demanding event like Summerfest, you could get one IV a day for a few days in a row to help your body recover and maintain its natural levels of fluids, vitamins and nutrients.
