Nutritional Therapy is the bespoke prescribing and administration of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids, tailored specifically for you and your treatment goals. Nutritional therapy can be provided via a quick, simple intramuscular injection (a "shot") or a relaxing IV infusion (a "cocktail"), dripped directly into your bloodstream for fast, maximum results!
IV and IM Nutritional Therapy can have many benefits, including:
Starting at just £20, whether you have specific nutritional deficiencies to supplement, have a particular goal or objective in mind, or are just looking for a valuable boost, Skin&Spirit's Registered Nurse led IV Nutritional Therapy service can help. Once the right treatment has been determined for you based on clinical suitability, our intramuscular injection shots require just a quick 10-minute visit to clinic. Whereas our IV cocktail infusions take between 20 and 60 minutes; lie back, relax and enjoy your surroundings in our beautiful clinic while we deliver vital nutrients directly into your cells!!
A medical consultation with our Registered Nurse Prescriber is required prior to receiving your nutritional therapy to establish treatment goals and suitability. In addition to a standard selection of shots, we have developed our own range of Skin&Spirit cocktails for you to choose from (see below), based on your presenting symptoms or desired goal. Alternatively, we can prescribe a regime which is much more bespoke for you - just ask! Treatments can be taken individually or as part of a course.
Maximise your results through the power of light while receiving your Skin&Spirit intravenous nutritional therapy cocktail, by adding on a no touch facial with our medically certified Dermalux LED Phototherapy machine!!
LED Phototherapy is the controlled application of Red, Blue and Near Infrared light wavelengths into the skin's deepest layers to energise our cells with clinically proven rejuvenating results. It is a natural response similar to that of plant photosynthesis, through a process known as photobiomodulation. Skin cells that are energised function better and can regenerate up to 200% faster, which in turn leads to a more youthful, healthy and radiant complexion.
Add on a 20-minute standalone Dermalux LED Phototherapy anti-ageing/skin rejuvenation facial treatment to any IVNT cocktail for just £25!!
Nutritional shots are delivered via a single intramuscular injection (typically in the upper arm). Shots may be taken as individual treatments for a quick boost, or as part of a course to achieve more specific goals.
Individual shot of vitamin B12 (hydroxocobalamin). Treats vitamin B12 deficiency. May also improve energy, brain function, sleep, lethargy, mood, muscle and limb weakness, memory problems, fertility and help with weight loss. Vitally beneficial when following a plant based, vegan or vegetarian diet, as vitamin B12 is particularly found in animal based food sources.
An individual high potency shot of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) with a chaser shot of vitamin B complex, including B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (nicotinamide) and B6 (pyridoxine). This duo shot is beneficial for brain and cognitive function, skin and bone health, strengthening the immune system and is a powerful antioxidant.
Individual shot of vitamin D (ergocalciferol). Treats vitamin D deficiency, which can lead to obesity, weight gain, eye and sight problems and metabolic syndrome. Known as the 'sunshine vitamin', vitamin D can also improve eye, skin, bone, teeth and muscle health, strengthen the immune system and help defend against viruses.
Vitamin B7 (biotin), also known as vitamin H, is essential for the metabolisation of fats, carbohydrates and protein and converting these nutrients into energy. A deficiency in vitamin B7 may cause hair loss and skin and nail problems, therefore, supplementing with biotin can improve hair, skin and nail health.
Individual shot of glutathione. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant naturally found in our cells that is anti ageing, neutralises free radicals, boosts our immune systems, improves muscle strength, boosts the production of testosterone and detoxifies the body. It can also cause skin lightening by converting melanin to a lighter colour and deactivating the enzyme tyrosinase, which helps produce the pigment.
An individual shot of cysteine; an essential amino acid, usually found in most high-protein foods, such as chicken, turkey, yogurt, cheese, eggs, sunflower seeds and legumes. Cysteine has a plethora of benefits - it promotes production of the powerful antioxidant glutathione, plays a significant role in supporting kidney and liver function and detoxification, it can help with respiratory problems by acting as an expectorant and decreasing inflammation and may help stabilise blood sugar.
Nutritional cocktails are delivered via an intravenous infusion (drip) taken in our relaxing clinic lasting between 20 and 60 minutes. Cocktails may be taken as individual treatments for a super quick boost, or as part of a course to achieve more specific goals.
A high potency IV infusion of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) - strength to be determined at consultation. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, critical for the growth, support and repair of all human tissues and cells. Clinically proven, vitamin C helps us absorb iron, supports our immune systems, protects our cells from free radicals (reducing oxidative stress), reduces blood pressure, lowers the risk of heart disease and other chronic conditions and helps protect our brain function and memory.
A high potency intravenous cocktail infusion of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) combined with vitamin B complex, including B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (nicotinamide) and B6 (pyridoxine). This cocktail of vitamin B complex and vitamin C is beneficial for brain and cognitive function, skin and bone health, strengthening the immune system and is a powerful antioxidant (refer to above description for vitamin C).
