Intramuscular (IM) Shots

Intramuscular (IM) Shots

The Vessel’s IM shots are a great way to achieve a burst of micronutrients as part of a coordinated vitality plan. Shot services do not require placement of an IV and are intended to provide vitamins, amino acids and co-enzymes without additional fluids. A shot service can be completed in fewer than 10 minutes and is an ideal way to maintain nutrient balance between IV services. With shot options designed to enhance energy, muscle performance and athletic recovery, detox, or metabolism, you can stop in for a quick pick-me-up today to keep you working and playing hard.
