Ketamine Therapy Q & A

What is ketamine?

Ketamine is an FDA-approved general anesthetic. It works by blocking certain neurotransmitters in the brain, causing sedation, and stopping the transmission of pain signals.

More recently, researchers have found that low-dose infusion of ketamine benefits people struggling with psychiatric conditions. 

What is ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine infusion therapy is a treatment for psychiatric conditions and chronic pain and one of the house call services available through Valhalla Vitality. 

Researchers are still investigating how ketamine eases psychiatric symptoms but theorize it works by blocking certain neurotransmitters, helping the brain create new neural pathways. These new neural pathways may then alleviate the psychiatric symptoms.

You gain more benefits when combining ketamine infusion therapy with psychotherapy — talk therapy.

Am I a candidate for ketamine infusion therapy?

The team at Valhalla Vitality determines if you’re a candidate for ketamine infusion therapy after a general health screening and consultation. The team’s psychiatric practitioner reviews the health screening to determine if you would benefit from ketamine infusion therapy.

The wellness center provides ketamine infusion therapy to help those struggling with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Addiction
  • PTSD
  • Bipolar disorder

Though ketamine infusion therapy has shown promising results, it’s not the first course of treatment for these mental health conditions. The psychiatric practitioner at Valhalla Vitality may consider you a candidate for this innovative treatment if traditional therapies fail to improve your symptoms.

What happens during ketamine infusion therapy?

Valhalla Vitality provides ketamine infusion therapy at your home or any other place you feel comfortable receiving treatment. The specifics of your infusion may depend on your health needs and goals

During ketamine infusion therapy, your provider either inserts an intravenous (IV) line in your arm or administers 2 intramuscular shots depending on the patients preffered method. Both methods of administration have a treatment duration of 35 to 45 minutes and total appointment times are about 60 minutes.

The health professional at Valhalla Vitality closely monitors you during and after your treatment. The team recommends you take it easy the rest of the day following your treatment. 

Though results vary, you might experience relief from your symptoms immediately, with results lasting up to one month.
