MUNCY — Welcome to Lycoming County’s only wellness bar, and it’s located right here in Muncy. The Infinity Hydration & Wellness Bar held a ribbon cutting ceremony and recently held an open house with the Lycoming Chamber of Commerce.
Services for this alternative health option are conveniently located at 75 Chad Road in Muncy Township. Owner Desiree Losell and her staff offer standard and custom vitamin drip infusions and electromagnetic therapy.
“Super immunity teas are a good choice for cold and flu season” Losell said. These infusions deliver fluids rich in vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes into your bloodstream to keep you well hydrated. According to Losell, who is a registered nurse with critical care experience, vitamin drip therapy is more effective than taking oral supplements.
“It does not filter in the intestine”, She answered.
The therapy has grown in popularity, and last fall, Losell decided to explore more options in alternative health. In May, he left his full-time position at a hospital and investigated vitamin therapy by offering both infusions and injections. After attending a conference in Kentucky and visiting other infusion centers in Pennsylvania, Losell hired another nurse to work with her and open her own hydration bar near her hometown of Unityville. “Location in Muncy was ideal and close to Geisinger,” she said. A soft opening took place on September 19.
“IV vitamin infusions are good for general well-being and symptom control.” A good example is the “Myers cocktail”. The sterile formula consists of high doses of B vitamins, vitamin C, and minerals such as magnesium and calcium. Other options include “Epic Hangover” Y “Super woman”. More descriptions and lists of beneficial vitamins can be found on their Facebook page. Some claim that they help slow the signs of aging, maintain a healthy body weight, and supply natural energy to our bodies.
Standard drops are available for allergies, athletic performance, the brain, more energy, and basic hydration. Custom droppers can be made for wound healing and regeneration, arthritis aches and pains, gut health, and thyroid support.
Vitamin injections are also available, and members of the medical staff administered complimentary B12 injections during the open house. Sheila Gush of Muncy said this was her best opportunity. “It didn’t even hurt. I did not feel anything”, she said. According to Losell, vitamin therapies are good for inflammation, weight loss, leaky gut, allergy relief, migraines, and dehydration.
The appeal of a quick boost has become popular in recent years, especially since the pandemic. Infusions can last between 45 and 60 minutes and are administered by professional registered nurses. These are general wellness therapies to support stronger immune systems and do not treat diseases such as cancer or heart-related problems.
Another popular service offered at Infinity Hydration & Wellness Bar is pulsed electromagnetic therapy. This helps “recharge diseased cells”. While relaxing in a recliner, it is delivered through a coil placed in the body that uses frequency to enhance cellular uptake of oxygen and nutrients. According to Losell’s research, the process is simple. She claims that this type of alternative therapy can help decrease pain, flush out toxins, reduce stiffness, fight inflammation, reduce stress, heal bruises, and increase metabolism.
