Ketamine Infusion Therapy has revolutionized the way we view mental health treatment options. Treatment resistant depression, anxiety and a variety of mood disorders can benefit from this cutting-edge approach to care.

Ketamine assisted psychotherapy and infusion therapy combines the best aspects of both traditional and complementary treatments for maximum benefit. Quick-acting results are just the beginning for those who embark on a course of ketamine infusion therapy – long term healing is possible due to its many ability to help reduce or eliminate symptoms associated with these disorders.


Treatment of Depression with Ketamine

Depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide, but sadly, many individuals affected by it do not seek assistance due to feelings of isolation and shame. Although depression itself may not be curable, its symptoms can be managed with the right treatment approach.

Ketamine, a groundbreaking treatment option for depression, has emerged as a significant advancement in recent years. Experts are increasingly recognizing the potential of ketamine therapy in addressing depression and alleviating its debilitating symptoms. Research shows that low-dose ketamine infusions can provide relief from depression symptoms in up to 75% of cases, highlighting the power of ketamine in transforming the lives of those suffering from depression.

The unique mechanism of action of ketamine sets it apart from traditional antidepressants. While most antidepressants work by modulating the levels of serotonin, norepinephrine, or dopamine in the brain, ketamine targets the NMDA receptors and influences the release of glutamate. This action promotes the growth and repair of neural connections, ultimately leading to improvements in mood and overall mental health. Ketamine infusion therapy is typically administered in a controlled clinical setting under the supervision of qualified healthcare professionals. While the treatment protocol varies depending on the individual’s needs and response, it commonly consists of multiple infusions over a two-to-three-week period.

Treatment of Anxiety with Ketamine

Anxiety disorders are prevalent, impacting up to 40 million adults each year, but only 40% of these cases receive appropriate treatment. Though not curable, anxiety symptoms can be managed effectively with the right therapeutic approach.

Ketamine is emerging as a potential game-changer in the treatment of anxiety disorders, offering relief and improved quality of life for those affected. The exact mechanism by which ketamine alleviates anxiety is not yet fully understood; however, some researchers theorize that it may work by repairing damaged neural pathways in the brain. This restoration leads to enhanced mood and energy levels, reducing the debilitating effects of anxiety.

Recent studies have demonstrated the efficacy of ketamine therapy for various anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. Ketamine has been particularly beneficial for those who have not experienced significant improvements with traditional treatments such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or benzodiazepines.

Ketamine infusion therapy is typically administered in a controlled clinical setting under the supervision of qualified healthcare professionals. The treatment protocol is tailored to the individual’s needs and response, with an initial series of infusions followed by maintenance infusions if necessary.

Treatment of PTSD with Ketamine

PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop following a traumatic event, often leading to difficulties in performing daily activities and feelings of isolation. Identifying the right treatment is essential in regaining control and alleviating symptoms.

Ketamine infusion therapy has emerged as an effective treatment for PTSD, offering rapid relief within hours or minutes compared to traditional medications, which can take weeks or months to produce noticeable results. Our clinic has witnessed remarkable improvements in patients who undergo ketamine treatment for PTSD, with many individuals reporting significant progress even after their first infusion. By harnessing the therapeutic potential of ketamine, individuals struggling with PTSD can find relief and regain control of their lives.

Ketamine’s mechanism of action is different from that of traditional medications used for treating PTSD. While most common treatments target neurotransmitters such as serotonin or norepinephrine, ketamine interacts with NMDA receptors in the brain, which play a crucial role in mood regulation and the formation of new neural connections. This unique approach can lead to a rapid reduction of PTSD symptoms and has the potential to help those who have not responded well to other treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ketamine infusion therapy has shown promise in treating a range of mental health conditions, including treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, anxiety disorders, and certain chronic pain conditions.

Yes, ketamine assisted psychotherapy combines low-dose ketamine administration with traditional psychotherapy sessions. The ketamine can enhance the therapeutic process by promoting mental flexibility and allowing patients to explore difficult emotions and memories more openly.

Ketamine infusion therapy is considered safe when administered by qualified healthcare professionals in a controlled clinical setting. However, like any medical treatment, there can be potential risks and side effects, which should be discussed with a healthcare provider.

Many patients report noticing improvements in their symptoms within hours or days of their first infusion. However, the full therapeutic effect may require multiple infusions and can vary from person to person.

The number of infusions required depends on the individual’s response to treatment, but a common initial course involves six infusions over two to three weeks. Ongoing maintenance infusions may also be recommended, depending on the patient’s progress.

Yes, ketamine infusion therapy can be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as medication and psychotherapy. A comprehensive treatment plan tailored to the individual’s specific needs is crucial for achieving the best possible outcomes.

Our Ketamine Infusion Therapy protocol is structured with two infusion sessions each week, over a period of three weeks, totaling six sessions.

Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes, during which ketamine is administered intravenously. Beyond just the infusion, our approach involves integrated psychotherapy throughout the entire process – before, during, and after the treatment.

On average, post-treatment conversations with your therapist take around 30 minutes, but individual responses to the therapy can vary. Some patients might require additional time to fully recover from the effects of the infusion. In such instances, our dedicated nursing staff will be available to provide the necessary care and assistance.

Your safety and comfort are our utmost priority. That’s why we ensure a healthcare professional is always present during your ketamine treatment. We strive to create a nurturing environment where you feel supported and informed at every step of your Ketamine Infusion Therapy journey.

Remember, this schedule may be tailored according to individual needs and responses to the therapy. For a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your specific needs, please consult with our healthcare professionals.

We recommend keeping your schedule clear on the days of your treatment sessions, and if possible, the day following each session as well. During the initial sessions, as your body is adjusting to the therapy, you may experience fatigue. However, there are several activities that can assist in the healing process, such as yoga, breath work, meditation, and journaling. Please remember to give your body the rest it needs during this time.

We encourage you to continue with any ongoing therapies throughout the course of your ketamine-assisted therapy (KAT) only if you feel the need for additional support during these three weeks. However, you may prefer to concentrate solely on the KAT treatment during this time and resume your existing treatment plan once the KAT course concludes. There are no conflicts of interest, so the decision is entirely up to you. Also, please note that you have the option to schedule extra sessions with Lucy during the three-week period, as she is a specialist in psychedelic-assisted therapies.

Predicting the exact nature of the experience can be challenging, as it varies for each individual and depends on what personal issues may surface during the session. However, with the starting dosage we administer, it’s unlikely that you’ll feel ‘out of control’. With the support of our therapists, you will be well taken care of and made to feel secure throughout the process. It’s important to note that sometimes, experiences perceived as difficult can also lead to profound realizations and growth. This has been observed in our work with patients to date. Of course, you always have the option to discontinue the treatment if it becomes too distressing for you. However, rest assured that you will be fully supported through any ‘scary’ experiences, which can often prove to be the most effective in facilitating healing.

Ketamine, as a psychedelic medicine, often induces experiences such as visual phenomena and profound insights, which are typically not associated with medications like pethidine. However, you might experience a similar sensation of feeling ‘spaced out’ yet still very conscious of your surroundings, particularly during the initial doses. As a dissociative substance, ketamine may occasionally cause you to lose track of time or require reassurances about your location. These experiences are more likely to occur at higher doses and will always be closely managed by your supporting therapist to ensure your comfort and safety.

Yes, you will likely remember most, if not all, of your experience. However, some aspects might initially seem unclear or nonsensical, as your psyche often presents information in metaphorical forms during these sessions. This is why post-session integration work is vitally important. It provides an opportunity to make sense of your experience and process the insights gained, allowing you to integrate the experience effectively and ultimately use the treatment to bring about improvements in your life.
