Welcome to The IV Lounge, the first of its kind in Newcastle. The IV Lounge is the brainchild of one lazy afternoon, and two hungover women. From a simple conversation shared over Monday morning coffees came the idea for a business, and within the month the wheels were set in motion.
What started as a one stop hangover shop quickly blossomed into so much more. The more we researched intravenous therapy and its benefits, the more we wanted to explore what we could offer the people of Newcastle. So, with that in mind we developed our menu and started to focus on athletes, beauty and wellness, as well as a myriad of health issues like chronic illnesses and, yes, the occasional hangover.
We had a chat with Ed and Gia for 'Sunday Sesh' on Hit 106.9. We spoke a bit about our business, and what you can expect from the IV Lounge, plus what the business has been like so far in its first week! Have a listen to the interview below.
The first hydration bar has opened in the Newcastle region.
The IV Lounge is an intravenous therapy service that opened its doors in the inner city suburb of Wickham on 16 August.
The organisation is managed by a qualified and experienced team of professional medical and administration staff.
Its services appeal to athletes and sportspeople, people recovering from exhaustive activity, have been unwell or who have travelled, particularly on long-haul flights, are dehydrated or undergoing detoxification, or people with malabsorption issues including Crohn’s Disease. The use of IV fluids can also assist in weight loss and there are a number of wellness and beauty treatments available.
