IV Hydration Therapy Comes to West Bend | Washington Co. Business News
WEST BEND — Abby Fabian is bringing intravenous hydration, a service she says “will help the community take action to make you better, whatever that looks like to each person,” in West Bend. Revitalize IV Lounge, owned by Fabian, opened late last month. Located inside Vivid Studios at 865 S. Main St., Studio One, his company is the first of its kind in Washington County. Currently, Fabian offers 10 distinct infusions, including Anything But Basic, Fountain of Youth, The Hangover Cure, The Fat Burner, Immunity Boost, Energize Me!, Athlete Recovery, Myer’s Mixture, The Perfect Pregnancy, and Migraine Mix. Each infusion can target specific areas of the body to reduce stress, increase metabolism, lower blood pressure, and more.
IV hydration therapy is a practice that sends essential vitamins, minerals, fluids, and sometimes medications directly into the circulatory system. Unlike an oral supplement, the IV bypasses the digestive system and its components are immediately absorbed. Without delay, the body can start using these benefits immediately, making a person feel better faster.
Fabian, a registered nurse with 13 years of experience, was inspired by her time in the intensive care unit (ICU) to start this business.
“After working on the medical side of healthcare, I wanted to see how I could help people improve their health before they got to the hospital,” Fabian said. “I tried an Energize infusion a while ago and I knew that was what I wanted to do to help people live better. I wanted to help people improve their lives, and maybe even decrease the amount of medication they might need to take each day.
In addition to his own medical background, Fabian partners with a physician who oversees infusions. Each is around 45-60 minutes long and includes Fabian’s full attention, as she only allows one person at a time in her studio (she will allow two people if they know each other). The supervision of a medical director also gives them the ability to personalize infusions, allowing clients to maximize their benefits.
A longtime resident of West Bend, Fabian plans to keep her roots in her hometown and grow with the community.
“In five years, I hope to be able to expand the studio into a larger space and be able to do five or more infusions per hour,” she said. “I see myself staying here in the West Bend community for as long as they have me!”
Revitalize IV Salon hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Evening hours are available from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays. Weekends are available for parties upon request.
