Experience Relief with Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Ketamine for Mood Disorders

Ketamine is a medication that has been found to be effective in treating mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. It works by acting on a specific receptor in the brain called the NMDA receptor, which is involved in the regulation of mood and emotions. 

When ketamine binds to this receptor, it causes a cascade of changes in the brain that lead to an increase in the levels of certain neurotransmitters, such as glutamate and GABA, which are thought to play a role in regulating mood. This can lead to a rapid improvement in symptoms of depression and anxiety, sometimes within hours of receiving the medication

Ketamine for Chronic Pain Conditions

Ketamine works by acting on a specific receptor in the brain and spinal cord called the NMDA receptor, which is involved in the perception of pain. When ketamine binds to this receptor, it blocks the transmission of pain signals in the nervous system, which can reduce the sensation of pain. 

Ketamine is also known for its ability to modulate the activity of the spinal cord and the brainstem, which are important regions in the processing of pain. It can also lead to the formation of new connections in the brain, which can help to rewire the brain and reduce chronic pain.

Conditions We Treat

The Ketamine Experience

Getting a ketamine infusion typically involves sitting or lying down in a comfortable chair or bed while a healthcare provider administers the medication through an IV. The infusion itself typically takes around 40-60 minutes, during which time you may feel a sense of relaxation or even euphoria. Some people report a mild dissociative experience, such as feeling detached from one’s surroundings or experiencing hallucinations. However, these effects are usually short-lived and are well-tolerated by most people
