Las Vegas IV Therapy
Copious amounts of booze is one of the many vices available in Las Vegas. Between complimentary drinks in the casino to bottle service in the clubs, it’s easy to have a bit too much to drink. Extreme heat over 110 degrees during the summer makes visitors in Las Vegas weaker and dehydrated quicker. This makes it more difficult for drinkers to remain sober.
Hangover cures a dime a dozen. Sometimes a hair of the dog Bloody Mary will do the trick. Maybe a greasy burger for lunch will help. During the weekend in Las Vegas, many will combine food and booze and brunch might help move the body beyond its weak intoxicated stage.
While rest and relaxation might be the best hangover cure, not everyone visiting Las Vegas has time for that. About five years ago, IV hydration therapy was introduced to the world. This technique provides hydration and vitamins to help cure weakness from dehydration, headaches, nausea, and other hangover symptoms.
The controversial IV therapy services provide solutions that aren’t approved by the FDA. However, re-hydration services do work for many people. The best way to recover is not to drink too much. That’s not always possible when visiting Las Vegas.
In Las Vegas, you can find IV hydration therapy at retail locations. There are also services that will come right to your hotel room. The mobile option is useful for a couple of reasons. Sometimes a hangover is so severe that you might not be in the condition to deal with the massive amount of people milling through the casinos.
If walking down to the casino floor is too much to handle then hopping in a taxi or rideshare to visit a retail location outside of the casino-resort is probably out of the question too. As you’d imagine, Las Vegas has plenty of retail and mobile options if you think IV hydration therapy is right for you.

Mobile IV therapy services in Las Vegas
Mobile IV therapy will come to your Las Vegas hotel room and give you a boost to help get your day started. This can be a great option for a few reasons.
First, sometimes the hangover is too much that leaving a hotel room isn’t possible. Second, not every hotel offers IV therapy even if you can leave the room. Lastly, the convenience of mobile IV therapy is more important than the cost.
Mobile IV therapy in Las Vegas is sometimes more expensive than visiting a retail location. In general, that’s not the case. However, a more expensive price can be offset by the cost to get to an IV therapy location. Paying a taxi or rideshare to take you two and from a location might just negate the savings the retail outlet may offer.
