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 can be 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 for pain or 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 one to two 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?
The best plan is to take care of yourself, including sipping the recommended amount of water throughout the day. Unfortunately we’ve seen too many people who who fall behind on their fluid intake and experience mild symptoms of dehydration such as lack of focus, headaches, and fatigue. This is when IV hydration can help. Many of our patients opt for an IV when they are gearing up for or recovering from high-stress and physically demanding events and need to be at their best immediately.
Needles Don’t Have to be Scary
