What is it?

IM (intramuscular) nutrient therapy is a therapeutic approach we specialize in. IM nutrient therapy is a technique used to deliver nutrients into the muscle tissue for increased absorption that would otherwise be difficult by supplementation. Crafted with specific goals in mind, our nutrient shots are customized to fit your unique needs and concerns. These shots make getting vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients quick and easy. Make an appointment to schedule your nutrient shot, or stop in during happy hour (see below). For a more customized and targeted approach, make an appointment with a doctor to determine what protocol and supportive IM may be best for you.
