Ketamine Therapy
Salt Lake City

Live Healthier, live Happier

Ketamine is an old medicine that’s been used for anesthetic purposes for over 20 years. However, recent research has shown that ketamine is incredibly effective against depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, bipolar disorder, and other mental health conditions. 22 Spa MD now provides ketamine therapy in Salt Lake City and Cottonwood Heights to alleviate your anxieties and improve mental health.

What Is Ketamine Therapy?

Ketamine therapy is a procedure wherein a highly-calibrated infusion of the ketamine medication can treat severe depression, anxieties, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD, and chronic pain.

The ketamine particles bind to the receptors in the brain to promote natural regeneration and connection, thereby regulating the patient’s mood and mental health.

Longer infusions can also reset the nerves and decrease chronic pain caused by injuries to the spinal nerves.

Advantages of Ketamine Therapy:

• Safe treatment for depression and chronic pain
• Approved by the FDA
• Quick onset of results
• The results last longer than other drugs
• No harsh side effects or complications
• No downtime

What To Expect

At 22 Spa MD, your ketamine therapy in Salt Lake City and Cottonwood Heights will start with a thorough evaluation and consultation. Our specialized ketamine infusion providers will discuss your symptoms and concerns, review your medical history. And go over the treatment plan. After curating the treatment plan, our providers will attach the ketamine IV drip to your arms while you sit back and relax. Most patients need IV infusions for 45 minutes, but patients with chronic pain may need up to 3 hours of IV infusions.

The first two weeks of ketamine therapy are usually the most intense because you may need 3 infusions per week for a total of 6 infusions in two weeks. It’s important to stick to the treatment schedule for optimal results — studies have shown that 6 infusions in two weeks provide the maximum chance of success. After each session, you can have someone drive you back home since driving under the influence is dangerous and illegal.

Are There Side Effects?

During your ketamine therapy, you may feel a sense of dissociation from the physical world, entering a dream-like state that makes you feel calm. Some patients report changes in colors and shapes, but most people have different experiences. The most common side effects of the treatment include nausea and fatigue, but we counter that with a preventative anti-nausea medicine before your treatment. Most patients should take the rest of the day off work and other activities.
