We can treat most anyone. The minimum age is 16 years old, with a signed parental consent/release and adults up to the age of 65.
Occasionally, patients with certain medical conditions (IE: Heart failure, acute or chronic kidney failure) may not be appropriate for our IV vitamin therapy. After scheduling an appointment, a qualified Revive medical professional will review all relevant medical history with you to ensure you meet the guidelines for safety & benefits from the infusion treatment.
Yes. Receiving fluids through an IV carries an extremely low rate of medical complications. IV’s are also safe for pregnant and breastfeeding patients; however, some medications and vitamins could have contraindications, so be sure to tell you Registered Nurse or Revive medical professional about any and all medications you are taking before treatment. We prefer to be in contact with your OBGYN or primary health care provider before treating you.
Our team is awesome! All treatments are administered by Arizona Board Certified health care professionals that include: Paramedics, Registered Nurses (most common), Nurse Practitioners, and Medical Physicians/Doctors. Most of Revive’s mobile/in-home health service medical professionals are Registered Nurses who work in Tucson area hospitals as their primary career, making their IV insertion skills the best around. You won’t feel a thing.
The base IV fluid is usually normal saline solution with electrolytes (sodium chloride). This type of fluid is the closest approximate to the normal fluid composition in your body. You can then add selected medicines, vitamin boosters and nutrient supplements. Your Revive medical professional will guide & advise you through the best selection of products to help you create a custom ‘IV-Cocktail’ to relieve your symptoms and get you feeling your best!
We source our medicines and supplies from a variety of reputable, FDA licensed & approved medical suppliers. We pride ourselves on using only the best and safest medicines. A complete list of products can be found on our Services page.
We’re mobile, we come to you! Currently, we only offer in-home, office, or hotel mobile services. Our ‘home base’ is located in Downtown Tucson. We will also be providing services at many upcoming events throughout the Tucson area, & hosting weekly pops-ups near the University of Arizona – follow us on social media for updates. We are happy to schedule group bookings in advance, as well as provide same-day treatments. Give us a ring!
UPDATE: Revive will be opening 2 retail locations in Tucson in the fall of 2018! You will be able to drop-in anytime and relax, rehydrate and Revive in our comfortable and fun infusion lounge.
Honestly... Water is essential to the healthy functioning of your body. Adequate hydration is critical before (Pre-gaming) so you party like a rockstar OR after drinking all night to cure that Hangover. Also, participating in an athletic event; when you are feeling sick, vomiting or nauseated; and when you simply want a pick me up. It is strictly at your convenience and discretion, but you should always hydrate, sooner than later in any situation.

A Revive medical professional will conduct an assessment of your condition including pulse oximetry, blood pressure, and medical history; and discuss your symptoms with you. They will mix your IV bag and begin the IV infusion treatment via a soft flexible catheter inserted either into your hand or your arm. We have you sign a consent for treatment. The vitamins, minerals and medications are all added to the IV fluid bag and will drip into your veins over the next 20-40 minutes. After you are done and feeling revived, the IV will be removed and we will have you apply pressure to the bandaid for a few minutes to prevent any skin blemishes.
Fluids, electrolytes, & vitamins are rapidly replenished when administered by IV. Unlike drinking water or taking a pill, IV administration delivers 100% of the fluids, medications, and vitamins directly into the bloodstream at the cellular level. This bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, which both slows water absorption and diminishes the potency of the ingredients. Most people feel an immediate ‘bump’ in their overall wellbeing, with full benefits lasting all day (sometimes longer).
Typically, no. If you have a high sensitivity to pain or are afraid of a small poke, we can apply a topical numbing medicine, OR use a special pain-free, needleless air injection that completely numbs the area, so you don’t feel a thing! Note: May have an additional charge.
We can’t accept private health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. We do accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Flexible Healthcare Spending Accounts and Health Spending Accounts. Our Services are substantially less expensive than most co-pays of an urgent care facility or an emergency room visit
Yes, we accept both Health Spending Accounts (HSA) and Flexible ‘health” Spending Accounts (FSA). Please complete the check out process using your HSA/FSA card.
Revive is a value. These are high-grade medical treatments of the same quality you would receive in the hospital or urgent care, but at a fraction of the price. Hospitals and Urgent Care Centers charge $400 to $1,000+ dollars just for the IV bag, not including the IV start, nurse, or vitamins and supplements. The emergency room charges most people with insurance $250 to walk in the door and it goes up from there.
Revive offers packages as low as $75. All-and-all Revive is tremendous value. Please see our services menu for a complete list of packages and prices.

Yes, we do. You can simply schedule regular services, by calling us.
Alternatively, see our Membership page for membership pricing and special perks and discounts. After receiving IV therapy, some clients feel immediate and long lasting improvements, seeking IV treatment as needed. Other patients need regular injections and fluid treatment.
We treat symptoms, not diseases; however, some chronic conditions produce symptoms such as dehydration and nausea and regular IV nutritional support can significantly benefit patients with these chronic symptoms.
While it is safe to get daily treatments, we generally limit our clients to one drip every other day.
Occasional side effects are generally limited to minor bruising or soreness near the insertion site. These are easily avoided by holding direct pressure after removal of the IV. Very rare are risks of infection and anaphylaxis, a very rare allergic reaction. Our highly trained medical professionals are well versed in diagnosing and treating any and all possible side effects.
Simply put, it’s all about the science of absorption and symptom treatment. The human body is only able to digest and process a small amount of water at a time. The excess water & fluid will be expelled from your body in your urine. IV fluids are the fastest medical treatment that currently exists to rehydrate your body. Additionally, we can offer direct infusion of medical grade drugs to treat any-and-all hangover symptoms you may be experiencing.
It depends on the treatment you choose, but Revive Mobile IV Therapy will increase rehydration and energy, and limit or stop cramping, nausea, vomiting, and migraines. Overall, it will make you feel better.
Results vary. The effects of an IV treatment generally last for about five days.
Revived! We have clients report they went from zero-to-hero immediately after receiving IV our services. Everyone is different and proper vitamin levels are necessary for your metabolism, cortisol levels, medication use and sleep patterns. Vitamin infusions can also support the immune system. Clients regularly report feeling relieved and cured of the typical symptoms associated with hangovers; stomach pain, headaches, muscle cramping and general discomfort after Revive treatment.
The average treatment time ranges from 20-40 minutes. Clients mention feelings of being balanced, rejuvenated, energized like they “just finished a work out,” and general feelings of happiness & comfort after IV treatments. Some clients experience the benefits slower, but over a longer period of time.
Your body needs it. Drinking alcohol, smoking (of all kinds), and general drug use rapidly depletes the Vitamin B12 from your body. When taken orally, Vitamin B12 is poorly absorbed through the stomach, especially if you are taking antacids, diabetes medications, or birth control pills. With Vitamin B12 injections, you bypass the absorption issues leaving so much more Vitamin available for your body to use.
Glutathione is the antioxidants and it’s ‘kind of a big deal’! It’s naturally produced in our liver cells, Glutathione helps detoxify and is found in every cell in our body. The benefits of glutathione are extraordinary it flushes our body of toxins and heavy metals, that pose threats to your health and wellbeing.
IV vitamin therapy is not a trend, clinics have existed since the 1980s in US. Mobile IV is the next evolution in the on-demand economy. Our mobile home health services are an advancement in healthcare availability, convenience and expense! Hospitals have been using IV treatments for more than a century, but it was never offered to the general public...until now. There is an entire medical field dedicated to IV infusion treatments, and we’re continuing to find better ways to treat a multitude of conditions.
IV treatments WILL NOT cure cancer. However, IV Vitamin Therapy with high doses of vitamin C have been shown to have positive impacts for patients being treated with chemotherapy and radiation. We always recommend using IV vitamin therapy as an adjunct to your oncological therapy, and with the involvement of your healthcare treatment team.
As fast as a cheetah! Which ya know, is pretty fast. You can resume your normal day, work, play or party, right after your IV treatment.
