Ketamine Infusion Therapy Q&A

What is ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine infusion therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses an FDA-approved anesthetic called ketamine to block receptors in your brain, reduce pain, and improve your mood. Because it’s an infusion, your provider administers the medicine directly into your bloodstream for fast, highly effective absorption and exceptional results.

What conditions can ketamine infusion therapy treat?

Ketamine infusion therapy is a noninvasive, relaxing treatment that can dramatically improve pain levels and mental health. Your Healing Ketamine specialist might recommend ketamine infusion therapy to treat:

  • Migraines
  • Chronic pain
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Substance abuse disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 
  • Eating Disorders
  • Suicidality

Along with ketamine infusions, your specialist recommends psychotherapy to enhance your results and further improve your mood.

Is ketamine infusion therapy right for me?

After reviewing your medical history, lifestyle habits, and symptoms, the Healing Ketamine team lets you know if you’re a candidate for ketamine infusion therapy. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and offer a psychiatric assessment. You may need blood tests or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out additional medical problems.

What should I expect during my treatment?

During ketamine therapy at Healing Ketamine, you relax in a comfortable, reclining chair. You may want to bring something to read or watch to pass the time. Or, you can simply rest during the procedure.

Your specialist inserts a tiny needle into a vein in your arm and infuses ketamine into your bloodstream. Each infusion takes about 45 minutes or so, and you may start feeling better within a few hours of your first infusion. 

While there’s no downtime afterward, ketamine is an anesthetic, so plan to take the rest of the day off from work and have a friend or family member drive you home. 

How many ketamine infusions do I need?

Ketamine infusion therapy works best when given as a series of six treatments over several weeks, booster infusions when needed, and psychotherapy to keep you symptom-free. Your provider personalizes each ketamine treatment to give you the best outcome and long-lasting results.
