What are they & why are they important?

After Water and Oxygen, Vitamins are the next essential micronutrient molecule vital for health – they are crucial for many body systems to function correctly.

Vitamin Injections allow your body to utilize 100% of nutrients as they are administered directly into your bloodstream, whereas oral vitamins must be digested before your body receives any benefits from them. Even then, a significant portion of the nutrients are lost during the digestive process meaning a higher daily vitamin intake is required to produce results.

An intramuscular injection is a technique used to deliver a medication into the muscles – this method allows faster absorption into the bloodstream giving immediate effects.

Vitamin deficiency is very common, can manifest at any age and is largely unrecognised as it is not always detectable through blood tests.

  • Depression / Low Mood
  • Hair loss

Does the procedure hurt?

We take all necessary precautions to ensure the treatment is as pain free as possible – the needle used is extremely fine and we offer FREE local anaesthetic cream (available on request) although most clients report injections cause very little discomfort and can be well tolerated with no anaesthetic.

Are there any side-effects?

Common side effects occur immediately after treatment and consist of redness and bruising at the site of injection and some clients have reported an aching/heavy feeling in the injected arm which subsided within 24 hours.

More serious side effects are exceptionally rare – treatment will only be carried out following a thorough medical consultation with our Advanced Nurse Practitioner/Independent Prescriber. This allows for more serious side effects to be discussed in detail before treatment is commenced.

How many treatments will I need?
