Where to Get IV Vitamin Therapy in and Around Philadelphia
For when you're dehydrated or hungover, or need that extra boost of nutrients.

In recent years, getting intravenous (IV) therapy in a boutique wellness space has become a thing. It’s a way to alleviate symptoms you experience when you’re not feeling so great — whether from being hungover, feeling flu-ish, experiencing menstrual cramps, or being jet-lagged — by pumping vitamins and nutrients directly into your bloodstream. (One of our own tried it after a rambunctious holiday bar crawl through South Philly, and it worked wonders.)
It’s worth noting that the effectiveness and safety of the wellness trend has been debated among medical experts, who encourage folks to use caution when considering a drip bar (i.e. consult your primary care doctor before visiting one, especially if you have an underlying condition; make sure the administrator is medically trained and certified; know what exactly is going into your body).
If you’ve done your due diligence and you’re ready to try IV therapy, consult our list (below) of where you can get vitamin- and nutrient-enriched infusions in and around Philadelphia.
