Before we can describe how infusion therapy could help you, let’s break down exactly what it is first. Ketamine infusion therapy is the slow infusion of a light dose of ketamine. The amount is not enough to put you to sleep, but enough for you to feel the effects on your body. The medication enters your body and has a positive effect on the neurotransmitters in your brain.
To get more technical, an essential neurotransmitter in the brain is glutamate, which is an amino acid. Glutamate, in conjunction with another neurotransmitter GABA, works together to keep a balanced nervous system. When there is an imbalance or a failure happening between those two neurotransmitters, your body will start to undergo unneeded stress and problems. There is evidence to suggest that ketamine can help bridge these connections and help your neurological system balance itself.
Many studies have been done that show ketamine as being able to “rebalance” the chemicals in your brain and can help some of the mental troubles’ patients are going through. This therapy has also been found to treat chronic of pain suffers as well. What can Ketamine Infusion Therapy Treat?

Depending on what you are targeting with your ketamine infusion therapy, the appointment can be anywhere from one hour to several hours. As the infusion can leave patients feeling woozy or having mild hallucinations, we do recommend waiting at least 30 minutes after treatment for monitoring by our staff. It is also important to rest for the remainder of the day, so don’t book too many other engagements right after your appointment!
