Testimonial: Ketamine Therapy Experience

This is a fragment of a more extensive testimonial shared by the patient:

“I’ve been struggling with my eating disorder since I was a teenager. Dating is hard, working is hard, being around myself is so difficult. It’s consumed my identity and I no longer know who I really am. I really need more than hope at this point in my life. During the ketamine treatment sessions, I felt weirdly held and safe in a way I haven’t felt even in my own body. The ketamine helped to break down some of the barriers that I had put up, or the barriers my eating disorder put up against my will. I am starting to feel a separation from my eating disorder. Thank you so much Shakti Therapy for showing me my eating disorder and not hating it anymore.”

Ketamine is an anesthetic medication that’s been FDA-approved for use in surgery since the 1970s. But pain relief is far from its only advantage. An ever-growing body of scientific research has proven that low-dose intravenous (IV) ketamine infusions can also have transformative effects on the brain that effectively “reboot” it to treat various mental health conditions including treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, and more.

Ketamine experiences can vary from person to person and day to day. During the infusion, you won’t lose awareness of your surroundings, but you may feel like you’ve entered a dream or that things seem unreal. An out of body experience is common, and it may feel like you’re watching your mind and body from outside yourself. You could get a little drowsy or confused. You might notice changes in your energy level, vision, speech, or perception of time. Feeling off-balance or a little dizzy is common, but you’ll be relaxing in our cushy zero-gravity chair until that goes away. Cyclical thoughts, anxieties, or narratives you tell yourself can shift or temporarily dissolve. Your world may suddenly feel lighter. You may be overcome with feelings of euphoria, peace, or mysticism.

After the infusion, you could start feeling like yourself again in as little as 20 minutes. We will monitor you in the office until your vital signs return to baseline. For several hours, you may feel a little tired or foggy-headed. You may also experience headaches, nausea, and dizziness for one to three hours after the infusion. Plan for some downtime after your treatment. This may also be a good reason to schedule your infusion in the afternoon so that you can rest and rejuvenate from the evening onward.

A single infusion's effects might last up to two weeks. Some patients may be symptom-free for several months after a series of six treatments. We also provide booster infusions, which can be administered regularly or a few times per year as needed.

Yes, ketamine infusions are an outpatient treatment that does not need a hospital stay.
