The holidays are a whirlwind that can leave you depleted. If you’re a nap devotee, you’ll be interested to learn that I — City Editor Brook here — recently found a more effective treatment for what ails your tired spirits than a few quick winks: an IV Hydration Drip at Hydrate Medical. Read along to find out how you can Try This.
What we tried (with pricing):
On a bustling December day, I arrived at the new Hydration Medical Asheville (190 Hendersonville Rd.). The staff set me up comfortably in a private room while I perused the 13 IV options designed to deliver fluids directly into the bloodstream for rapid hydration. I opted for the Hydrate Wellness/Immune Boosting drip ($129).
I barely felt any discomfort, and noticed after about 10 minutes, I started to feel incredibly relaxed. As the day progressed, I didn’t feel my typical afternoon slump, and I was pleasantly surprised to wake up the following day feeling energized.
What not to miss:
The convenience factor. A treatment takes ~1 hour from the time you walk in and out of the door. (Read: you can schedule a drip during your lunch break.)
Can’t make it to the med spa? For an additional fee, the Hydrate Medical team will come to you for a treatment. This is a great option for anyone with a party or wedding where you need a boost beforehand or a drip to help you combat a hangover.
What we’re still talking about:
The experience was very relaxing (and totally manageable even for someone who isn’t the biggest fan of needles). Each room at Hydrate Medical was designed to feel like a soothing, spa-like experience.
Bonus: Some rooms feature TVs or speakers for music, so you can choose the environment that makes you feel the most comfortable during a treatment.
How you can experience this:
While walk-ins are welcome, Hydrate Medical recommends making an appointment. You can call (828) 365-6044 book an appointment online.
