The people behind New York City’s Standard Hotel always seem to deliver exactly what customers want, before they even realize they want it. A rooftop pool inside a nightclub? Done. An ice skating rink complete with a hot chocolate stand in the middle of Manhattan? They did that too. And now, for the month of April, they’re bringing together three innovative wellness therapies to create the ultimate detox spa in their East Village location.

At Future Spa: Drip, Chill, and Shine, which debuts April 9 and runs every Saturday for the rest of the month, you can get intravenous nutrient therapy from NutriDrip, indulge in a cryotherapy session (reputed to reduce inflammation) with CryoSphere, and sweat it out with HigherDose infrared treatments.

Each of these therapies would be a rare item on any spa menu, and together they make up a cutting-edge combination—useful for everything from “recovering quickly from a cold or detoxifying after a night of over-indulgence,” NutriDrip founder Asa Kitfield explains. For example, NutriDrip uses an antioxidant called L-Glutathione in many of its IV drips because of its reputed ability to pull toxins, heavy metals, and free radicals out of the body to be metabolized or sweat out.

“Combining IV Glutathione with infrared heat therapy, which by itself allows you to sweat out six times more toxins than a standard sauna, produces a comprehensive purifying treatment,” says Kitfield. “So if you combined that IV with a three-minute cryotherapy session, you are able to create an integrative therapy for muscle recovery or inflammation reduction.”

Prices start at $20 for a cryofacial and go up to $149 for the full “Chill, Drip, Shine” experience. All the treatments will be overseen by on-site registered nurses, and guests who book an appointment will have access to hotel amenities like showers and a cold-pressed juice bar.

Appointments are limited and (no surprise here) are already filling up, so book now to reserve your spot. Think of it as the perfect pre- (or post-) brunch detox. Your liver (and skin, hair, nails, and joints) will thank you.
