Kilkenny Services was developed in 2013 by a passionate professional athlete and fitness expert alongside a "Motivated Nurse"(Regulated Nurse), educator, and health advocate. Starting off in the Wellness business the initial footprint of Kilkenny Services was proven in the workplace by developing recreation, leisure, fitness and health programs and services for individuals working long shift work, proven to have a positive and rewarding environment to unwind, have fun, and blow of the daily steam.
Gaining expert training in Caregiver Support & Treatment, Tai Chi, Breathwork, Natural Health and Essential Oils we have grown a passion to focus on sharing programs and services in our local communities. Providing 1:1 athletic coaching for adults and youth, treatments for natural health through essential oil massage, breathwork, creative therapy, oxygen therapy as well as group and mobile programs and treatments.

That same year, Kilkenny Services opened its first Wellness Studio in Lethbridge, providing the same great recreation, leisure, fitness, education & health programs to gather and grow as a community in an environment where everyone is not only welcome but cherished in the programs they choose. In 2019 we grew to Medicine Hat and are so excited to join the downtown businesses to grow and revitalize the core of the old gas city.
In 2020 we PIVOT with the effects of the global pandemic resulting in the close of our storefront and the immediate halt of gathering and all things sociable..... we began a strong focus on our roots and the Natural health side of our business and Local Handmade offerings. After years of learning and experience, educating and coaching groups, and running trade fairs, markets, and school canteens we developed our Online Platform and have grown our mobile services!

In Spring of 2022, we partnered with FARSK Canada to begin offering Vitamin Infusions to truly elevate our Wellness offerings while complementing clinical training. This was a HUGE step for us! This means partnering with a Medical Director and building a clinical element to our current holistic health model. Patients can be reassured that they are being seen by a regulated health professional and follow a clinical intake, treatment, and discharge plan when receiving Infusion, clinical or injectable services.
Why IV Therapy?
Prevention of dis-ease.
We hope to support patients BEFORE they end up in a medical center or emergency room.
The use of IV therapy in hospitals and emergency settings is a well-known, widespread practice since the 1930s. It wasn’t until the 1960s that Dr. John Myers started injecting patients with what he called a “cocktail” of vitamins and minerals that the medical field realized the potential of IV therapy to optimize health. How is IV therapy different from taking a supplement?
Well, with IV drips, the body receives the vitamins and minerals by injecting the solution directly into the bloodstream; a process that bypasses the digestive system and allows clients to feel the positive effects instantly.
The most common benefits of IV therapy are:
• Improve hydration
• Nourish the body through vitamins, minerals and electrolytes
• Strengthen the immune system
• Enhance energy
• Boost the metabolism
• Protect against free radicals
• Regenerate cells, and improve skin conditions
