An emergency-medicine physician and advanced nurse practitioner are the brains behind Activate Hydration, which promotes wellness through intravenous and muscular injections of vitamin and mineral supplements.
“Our main target is trying to keep people healthy, especially coming into this time of year,” said Dr. Anthony Jones, a co-owner of the business with Stephen Clare.
Jones and Clare work with Dr. Michael Magoon at The Emergency Clinic Alamo Heights.
Activate Hydration held a summer grand opening at 1860 Nacogdoches Road in the Carousel Court shopping center.
“I’m very upfront: We’re not trying to treat medical issues or conditions. This is more of a preventative and proactive response. I’m more than comfortable talking with any person that comes in,” Jones said.
There are four types of IVs offered — energy, health, immune and “max,” along with B-12 shots.
“Our products are pretty straightforward. It’s not anything that is excessively complex,” Jones said. “It’s divided up well enough that (customers) can decide what they prefer to have.”
Energy combats fatigue with caffeine, vitamin B-12 and dextrose, while health promotes general wellness with a mixture of vitamins, B-12 and a combination of B complex vitamins to promote “whole-body enhancement.”
Immune is for the health-conscious with a mixture of vitamins, including B-12, and micronutrients to help boost the immune system. Max contains a mixture of vitamins and micronutrients along with B complex vitamins to “supercharge” the mind and body.
Every customer must undergo a medical screening before starting a session, which typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes.
Activate Hydration offers a relaxed atmosphere similar to a medical spa, without the sterility of a doctor’s office, Jones added.
