Our lounge is equipped with heated massage recliners so can truly relax during your drip. We are also happy to offer you beverages and snacks as well. You can catch up on work, take a nap, or add on a skin treatment during your time in our lounge.
A Vitamin Drip is a great way to deliver all the vitamins and nutrients your body craves. You can expect improvements in your mood, energy level, and even skin.

We are pleased to offer LIGHTSTIM professional LED therapy at ZL. LED therapy, which stands for light emitting diode, is comprised of different wavelengths of light energy. This is UV-free and safe for all skin types. Benefits include increased circulation, improved healing, pain reduction, and anti-aging improvements such as decreased fine lines and wrinkles.

While you are hydrating from within, why not improve the appearance and texture of your hands in a relaxing manner? An exfoliating polish is then followed by a heated, hydrating mask which is then massaged into the skin for lasting hydration.
An IV “vitamin cocktail” is carefully blended to suit your needs. A mixture of vitamins is added to a liter or half liter of IV fluid. A very small IV catheter is placed in a vein, and then the solution full of vitamins will flow easily through the vein and be readily and quickly absorbed by your body. The process can be as quick as 20 minutes to an hour. During the drip you can relax in one of our massage recliners, catch up on emails, or bring a friend to share in the experience. At the end of the drip the catheter is removed and a small bandaid is placed on the site. You can expect to feel better and more energized over the next several hours to weeks.
Vitamin drips have been used since the 1950’s. The Myer’s Cocktail was created by a naturopathic physician to treat fatigue and fibromylagia. Our current drips are a modern version of this original Myer’s Cocktail. Today in hospitals, we are using B12 and Vitamin C, among others to improve nutrition and wound healing in some of our sickest patients. When vitamins are introduced through the venous system, your body is able to absorb more of the vitamins than if you were to consume them by mouth. We are just beginning to see some of the amazing benefits IV Vitamin Therapy can do, and we anticipate this therapy to become even more mainstream.
IV drips are very safe when administered by licensed and trained clinicians. We worked closely with a pharmacist in developing our recipes to ensure pH and osmolarity are safe and comfortable to the patient. Nurse Practitioner, Laura Zimmerman, has over 14 years nursing experience, which includes some of the most acute inpatient settings. She personally assesses all patients prior to receiving drips.
The base of all our drips is normal saline, in either 500ml or 1000ml. Your body needs be to hydrated to be efficient and healthy. All of our drips include some of these key ingredients:
All of our Vitamin drips contain antioxidants. These vitamins are the tools your body needs to fight inflammation, prevent disease, and even improve your skin. Antioxidants work by removing free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can harm cellular structures, cause cell and DNA mutations, and accelerate the aging process.
A key player in the body’s ability to heal. Prevents oxidative stress. Aids in collagen production. Improves energy. We are only able to obtain Vitamin C through supplementation and diet, our body does not produce this.
Many consider Glutathione to be the master antioxidant. Benefits include increased strength and endurance, detoxification of liver, strengthened immune system, reduced muscle and joint discomfort, improved mental focus, improved male fertility, and improved skin. As we age, we produce less Glutathione. Studies have shown IV Glutathione to be the most effective route for supplementation.
a trace mineral which aids in wound healing, collagen production, boosts reproductive health, boosts immunity, and can shorten the duration of symptoms during illness.
An amino acid which helps turn fat into energy. This can be helpful in improving athletic performance, losing weight, and even improving male infertility.
Improves energy, promotes for efficient metabolism, improves mood and concentration.
A combination of B1, B2, B3, B5, B6: aid in healing, energy, improve metabolism, improve brain function.
Absolutely. We administer B12 shots (in the arm or butt) frequently for those who are deficient. Typically we start with once a week, and taper to once a month injections. We can also add B12 to an IV drip as well.
Yes, but we will not add in any vitamins. Many pregnant women suffer from morning sickness which leaves them dehydrated. We do offer IV’s consisting of just fluid for $75. There is not enough clinical data to establish the safety of IV vitamins, so we stick to just saline for safety reasons. A thorough medical history review is conducted first. If you have any special conditions associated with your pregnancy, we recommend calling ahead to discuss if you are a candidate.
Most likely not. We are pro’s at getting IV’s on the first try, in fact over 90% of the time! Just in case your veins like to hide or roll, we have a vein finder light which makes the job even easier. We also aren’t in the business of making the process painful, so in the very unlikely event we can’t get an IV after 3 attempts we may offer you a vitamin shot and won’t charge you for the IV.
No, we do not accept insurance. You may pay with cash or credit/debit card. In some cases our patients have used HSA/FSA cards as payment. We cannot guarantee eligibility.
On occasion we are able to accommodate customized requests. First, you will need to schedule a consultation with our nurse practitioner (there will likely be a charge for this). She will review your requests and medical history. If you have any lab work documenting vitamin deficiencies you should bring it. Typically, if your request is for high dosages of vitamins, without supporting lab work, we will not be able to accommodate you due to the unknown safety profile of certain vitamins in high dosages. A minimum $250 fee is charged for customized drips.
You may think you can’t possibly have enough vitamins because of their health benefits, but in some rare instances an overabundance of certain vitamins may cause some temporary side effects. All of our drips are carefully combined to keep your dosage in a safe range. It is very important to let us know what vitamins and supplements you are currently taking. The most common side effects of higher than normal serum levels are gastrointestinal in nature.
No, we do not. We currently offer the drip choices listed here and B12 shots with or without a MIC complex.
We firmly believe that you should obtain the majority of vitamins, antioxidants, and hydration through a balanced diet. Our vitamin drips are meant to be just an adjunct to your healthy lifestyle, not a replacement. Typically we recommend once per month for this purpose. During times of wound healing and recovery we may recommend increasing the frequency.
