Our Approach

Ketamine can be administered in a number of ways including intravenous infusion (IV), intramuscular injection (IM), intranasally, orally, and sublingually (as a dissolving troche or lozenge). Each route varies in the onset of action (time), bioavailability (absorption), and clearing time and also varies for each person. Although a response is generally predictable based on past administration, it is possible that a patient may experience different physiological, psychological, and emotional effects with the same dose.

We firmly believe that multiple ketamine sessions are needed in order to facilitate the cumulative anti-depressant or other mood-altering effects of the medication. Typically, a patient will go through 1-2 sublingual treatments prior to an intramuscular treatment. This is necessary to assess how the patient reacts to the medicine, to allow the new neural pathways to form, and to reorganize synaptic connections.

Sublingual

The purpose of the sublingual ketamine lozenge sessions is twofold. First, it allows our staff to assess your response to the medication and gives us a baseline to work with. For some individuals, only sublingual administration will be utilized. Second, it generates a cumulative anti-depressant or other (anxiety, pain, PTSD, etc.) benefit that often occurs over time with repeated sessions.

IM (intramuscular)

After a patient has experienced 2-4 sublingual ketamine treatments, he/she may benefit from one or more intramuscular treatments. The purpose of the IM ketamine treatment is to create a non-ordinary or altered state of consciousness in order to facilitate a profound transpersonal (transcendental, mystical, or spiritual) peak experience.

IV (intravenous)

Much research has done with the IV administration of ketamine, and although it also yields the same cumulative effect, it may not produce a profound experience which can play a vital role in the healing process. However, it has been found that patients who suffer from chronic pain can benefit immensely from IV ketamine treatments.

How Does Ketamine Treatment Help With Mood Disorders?

What distinguishes ketamine in comparison to various other antidepressants is how it functions to have an effect on the human brain. Antidepressants generally concentrate on boosting chemicals in the brain like serotonin as well as dopamine.

Using ketamine for clinical depression, nevertheless, can in fact assist in repairing neuron synapses that commonly do not operate correctly in the brains of depressed individuals. Ketamine prompts a reaction in the brain, and it’s the adjustment to that provocation–the regrowth of synaptic networks–that is accountable for the quick progress in the mood it produces.

How Does Ketamine Treatment Help With Chronic Pain?

Ketamine therapy is a practical treatment alternative for dealing with chronic pain symptoms, and may be particularly efficient for individuals who have come to be resistant to narcotics and various other pain-relieving treatment methods.

Ketamine treatment delivers encouraging results for pain patients and may be a worthwhile alternative to most conventional treatments for CRPS. Ketamine functions by means of resetting the central nervous system’s sensitization to pain, thereby providing relief.

Unlike opiates that make patients more hypersensitive to pain in time, ketamine serves to help quiet the brain during the course of treatment and brings back regular handling of pain in the brain to supply long-lasting pain reduction.

The Process

Book a Consultation

To find out if ketamine therapy is an appropriate treatment option for you, we invite you to book a consultation. Within 24 hours of the assessment, you will be contacted by a wellness professional to help you schedule and prepare for your initial ketamine evaluation with our psychiatrist.

Complete the Forms

Prior to your first visit you must fill out the required forms. A link will be emailed to you after you book your appointment of you can fill them out here.

Psychiatric Evaluation

Your first appointment will be with our psychiatrist, Dr. Andrew Ferber. During the 30 minute visit you will discuss your mental and physical health, both past and current as well as the reasons you are seeking ketamine treatments. If approved you will meet with one of our wellness professionals to go over your ketamine wellness plan. This is determined by a number of factors including current mood, mental health history, tolerance to medications and psychedelics, your assessment scores, and overall health. Your wellness journey is unique to you and, because of that, we custom tailor your ketamine treatment and any supplemental services to meet your exact needs. This can include psychotherapy sessions, integration sessions or groups, dietary planning assistance, yoga classes, meditation groups, healing circles, workout activities, and more.

Before Your First Treatment

Please carefully read the pre-treatment instructions concerning guidelines for your experience to be successful.

Setting Your Intentions

In order to facilitate a positive experience, both set and setting have to be taken into consideration. We have taken great care to ensure that the setting is relaxed and comfortable and we offer music, soft lighting, blankets, sleep masks, etc. in order for you to allow yourself to let go. But how do you prepare your mindset for an experience? The best way to do this is through setting intentions. An intention is a guiding principle for how you want to live and a way to bring heart and mind into alignment.

Your First Treatment

It is not uncommon to feel a little nervous or apprehensive prior to a session, especially the first one. You will work with our staff to find an appropriate dose during your treatment. Generally you will titrate up to larger doses in subsequent sessions which can lead to more profound experiences. No two experiences are the same and no one can tell you what you may experience. Learn about “Trust – Let Go – Be Open”.

Integrating Your Experience

Ketamine can do a lot of amazing things, but it cannot change your diet, habits, environment, or who you associate with. All of these things have to come from the individual and it takes courage and bravery to facilitate these changes. In the days and weeks that follow an experience, it may become easier to allow these changes to become a part of your usual lifestyle. However, it is important that if these changes are resisted the will to make these changes may fade. That is why it is imperative to reflect, integrate, and make changes directly following a session.

Some patients may notice a difference after 1-2 sessions and usually notice a substantial difference after 6+ treatments. After the initial loading dose of 6-12 treatments some patients may need an occasional booster.

Yes, we are currently accepting new patients. Appointments for new patient intakes can typically be scheduled within one to two weeks. At times there can be a await of up to two weeks after intake before treatment sessions begin. We will let you know the current wait times when you schedule your intake appointment.
Many clinics around the state and around the country only do lower dose IV treatments. Although this method is acceptable, we feel that larger doses via sublingual lozenge or intramuscular injection can yield more profound and lasting results. Also, many clinics provide the patient with the treatment, a psychiatric consultation, a lesson in meditating, and maybe an integration session or group. We feel that ketamine is much more beneficial when it is coupled with lifestyle changes as well. Because of this approach to healing mind, body, and soul, MY self Wellness offers a variety of products and services to encourage you in your health and wellness journey.
Your first appointment will be the psychiatric evaluation. Before your appointment we will email you a link to several forms that must be completed prior to the appointment. Also, please bring any appropriate medical records, if applicable (e.g., lab results, diagnoses, hospital discharge summaries, etc.).
On the day of treatment, please refrain from taking any stimulants that may raise blood pressure and benzodiazepines which will lessen the effects of the ketamine. You may take your anti-hypertension medication and insulin/diabetic medications (be aware of fasting).
