Treatment Pick: Cure Your Hangover With a Drip & Chill

20 January 2012

Whilst some of you lot might be doing your January detox and abstaining from all things naughty, we can't say we've been doing the same. With launches, suppers out and drinks parties a plenty, January appears to be the new December. So, trying desperately to dodge the common cold and any of those nasty New Year lurgies, we called upon the heroes at the EF Medispa to get us in top top condition before Fashion Week (or Month in our case) commences. Let's hear it for the Drip & Chill...

Treatment Pick: Cure Your Hangover With a Drip & Chill

What exactly is Drip and Chill? Well it does what it says on the tin really – they hook you up to a drip and you just chill for half an hour. It’s not for the faint-hearted though; to begin with a needle is inserted into your upper arm and you are connected to the intravenous drip. Then the concoction of vitamins trickles into you very gradually – for us this included lots of magnesium and iron, zinc to keep colds at bay and B vitamins for general good health. Esther Fieldgrass, owner of the EF Medispa and genius on all things health and beauty, talked us through the treatment and promised good results. “I have been having vitamin infusions for several years, since I realised that this was the most efficient way to supplement the body’s deficiencies in vitamins and minerals.” Not only does the treatment help with low energy, stress, weight issues and all those other niggling ailments, but it’s a winner at this time of year when viruses seem to be spreading like wildfire.

Strangely we experienced a weird taste in our mouth which the therapist explained was the vitamin C entering the blood stream. And the area around where the drip was inserted became quite red from the Vitamin C being in contact with the skin, but this disappeared post-treatment. Apart from that, it was, well, really rather nice and we can see this becoming our speed-dial hangover cure. Our feet were even given a mini dose of reflexology (you can always rely on these guys to go the extra mile) to pass the time and before we knew it, we were right as rain. 24 hours later and we are feeling full of energy and clear-headed, and strangely our vision seems to be brighter. Let the partying begin…
