Feeling Good from the Inside Out

Tina Talbert’s Hydreight mobile IV bar brings the benefits of IV therapy to Shallotte and beyond.

You know that hydration is good for your body, but sometimes it can be difficult to hydrate as much as you need to. Did you know that you can replenish your body’s hydration through an IV session — and that the IV session will come to you?

Hydreight, a new mobile IV bar, is the latest service offered by Tina Talbert, owner of Yard Time Body Correction Facility, which also houses her in-house IV Bar. This IV vitamin therapy is a newer trend in wellness, health and energy.

Talbert, a registered nurse since 2004, wanted to exit the hospital scene about two years ago when COVID-19 plagued her workplace (and hospitals across the country).

“I wound up going down to Key West, and I had the first hangover I’ve ever had in my whole 53-year-old life,” she says. “I saw the IV bars down there, but I didn’t get one and ended up wasting five hours of my day because I didn’t feel well.”

That was the inspiration for Talbert’s career change — to do something on her own terms outside of the traditional medical field and hospital doors.

Her IV fluids replenish the body with vitamins, electrolytes, antioxidants and minerals that can boost energy, increase your metabolism and reduce pain and stress. Besides hydration, the IV therapies can give you the vitamins and minerals needed immediately if you feel a cold or flu coming on, if you’re experiencing headaches or migraines, if you’re expecting a hangover or if you’re suffering from mild chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, depression or fibromyalgia. In addition to the IV drips, Hydreight also offers a B12 and D3 shot.

The specific list of IV services includes: The Energizer, The Libido Shot, The Skinny Shot, Basic Hydration (Normal Saline), Fat Burner (Normal Saline, MIC, B12 and L Carnitine), Immunity Support (Normal Saline, Zinc, Vitamin C and B6), Hangover Helper (Normal Saline with minerals, Zofran and Vitamin C), Sunburn Relief (Normal Saline, Vitamin C, Glutathione, B Complex and Magnesium), Youthful Beauty (Normal Saline, Mineral Blend, Vitamin C and biotin), Athlete Recovery (Normal Saline, Amino Blend and B12), Migraine (Normal Saline, B6, Zofran and Toradol), Prenatal (B12, B6, Folic Acid, Zofran, B complex) and Myer’s Cocktail (Normal Saline chocked full of vitamins/minerals).

“Clients come in waves,” Talbert says. “I have some people who want to get the immunity IV. I also have something called Glutathione that’s been researched for helping people recover after COVID. And a lot of people started finding out that I had the skinny shot, so they’re coming on their lunch breaks and getting it once a week for only $35.”

If you’re concerned about the safety of Talbert’s IV therapy, it may ease your mind to learn that she was known as the “IV Queen” during her days working in the hospital.

“I had patients who, when they came to the hospital, would ask for me by name, saying I’m the only one they trust,” she says.

The entire IV process is quick and painless. You download the Hydreight app or book your service via her Facebook page beforehand to fill out medical information. If clients are unsure about booking online, Talbert will walk them through it, but it will just take longer.

Before the IV session she will check your vitals, and if all is clear, she will proceed. During a visit to Talbert’s Body Correctional Facility IV Bar within her Yard Time gym, clients can expect a relaxing, spa-like lounge area, complete with heated massage chairs, blackout curtains (for hangover or migraine clients), soft blankets and cold water. Clients of the mobile Hydreight IV service can expect Talbert to service most of Brunswick County every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm. Talbert and another nurse on staff split their time between the facility and the mobile service.

As Talbert says, IV therapy is a great way to feel better from the inside out.

“It’s mostly just vitamins and minerals,” she says. “The cool thing about it is that it’s going straight into your bloodstream. It’s not like taking a pill and only being able to absorb about 30 percent of that pill. It affects you right away.”
