Ketamine Infusion Therapy Q & A

How does Ketamine infusion therapy work?

Ketamine is an anesthetic, which means it can reduce your pain. However, because of the way Ketamine works in the central nervous system, Ketamine can also improve emotional symptoms and others in addition to pain and discomfort. 

Ketamine works by altering the activity in your brain and central nervous system. It blocks certain neurotransmitters, causing your brain to develop new neural pathways and alleviate pain and other symptoms. 

You feel relaxed during infusions, but the benefits outlast the infusions themselves. With ongoing Ketamine infusion therapy, you can experience long-term improvements in treatment-resistant conditions. 

Which conditions can Ketamine infusion therapy treat?

Ketamine infusion therapy can treat a wide variety of conditions, including mood disorders and conditions that cause or amplify pain. It’s especially beneficial for cases in which standard treatments haven’t resulted in significant improvement. 

Ki_Ketamine can personalize your Ketamine infusions to treat or manage:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuropathy
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)

You may get the best results from Ketamine infusion therapy if you continue other treatments alongside the service, including psychotherapy or counseling for mental health conditions. 

What should I expect during Ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine infusions take around 40 minutes per session. The team ensures you’re comfortable before the infusion and proceeds to monitor your pulse, blood pressure, and oxygen for the duration of the infusion. 

Ketamine enters your system through an IV drip. As this happens, you begin to feel relaxed and content. Some people report feeling warmth during a Ketamine infusion. Since Ketamine is dissociative, you might feel separated from your thoughts, emotions, and pain. 

Once treatment is complete, you stay in the office for another 30-45 minutes so the team can monitor you. Ki_Ketamine has a therapy dog in the office to enhance your therapeutic experience. 

The results you experience from an infusion can last for weeks. Most people benefit from regular Ketamine infusions to manage their symptoms long-term.
