Discover a New Horizon in Mental Health: Ketamine Therapy

Transforming Lives Beyond Traditional Treatment

In the quest for mental wellness, traditional therapies have been the cornerstone for managing depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. However, for many, these methods fall short. That’s where ketamine therapy steps in, offering a revolutionary approach to mental health care. At Flow Wellness, we understand the complexities of mental health. Our ketamine therapy program is designed to offer more than just symptom relief; it aims to open doors to a more fulfilling and joyful life.

Ketamine Therapy: A Beacon of Hope

Ketamine, once known primarily for its use in anesthesia, is now at the forefront of mental health treatment. Its unique ability to rapidly alleviate symptoms of depression, ease anxiety, and reduce chronic pain is changing lives. Ketamine promotes neuroplasticity which refers to the brain’s ability to change and adapt by forming new neural connections throughout life, which is crucial for learning, memory, and recovery from brain injuries. In the appropriate setting, ketamine can help disrupt the brains “default network” and promote new connections to form – replacing anxiety and negative thoughts.

Rapid Relief When It Matters Most

One of the most remarkable aspects of ketamine therapy is its speed. Unlike traditional antidepressants that take weeks or even months to show effects, ketamine can provide relief within hours. This rapid response can be a lifeline for those struggling with severe depression or anxiety. Ketamine supplements traditional mental health treatment such as anti-depressants and anxiety medication as well as counseling and psychotherapy.

Multiple Methods of Treatment

Ketamine is most effective administered intravenously (IV) in a clinic setting. The infusions lasts 40 mins and the entire visit is about two hours. Relaxing in our dedicated infusion room which is calming and safe environment. We will be your guide for your experience and you will be monitored by a registered nurse and treating clinician during your entire stay. Intramuscular (IM) ketamine treatments are also available. This treatment does not require an IV in your arm and is less expensive.

Benefits for Depression

Rapid Symptom Relief:

Traditional antidepressants often take weeks to show their effects, partly because they rely on gradually changing neurotransmitter levels. In contrast, ketamine’s ability to rapidly induce neuroplastic changes can lead to quick improvements in mood and cognitive function, sometimes within hours or days.

Resilience to Stress:

By enhancing neuroplasticity, ketamine may help the brain become more resilient to stress. This is crucial in depression treatment, as stress and an inability to adapt to it can be a significant factor in depressive disorders.

Circuitry Rebalancing:

Depression is often linked with dysfunctional neural circuitry in the brain, particularly in areas related to mood and emotion regulation. Ketamine’s promotion of neuroplasticity can help rebalance these neural circuits, effectively ‘resetting’ them, which may alleviate depressive symptoms.

Cognitive Benefits:

Enhanced neuroplasticity can also lead to improvements in cognitive functions such as memory and executive function, which are often impaired in individuals with depression.

Benefits for Anxiety

Enhanced Neuroplasticity:

As with its effect on depression, ketamine promotes neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to form new neural connections. This increased plasticity can help the brain ‘rewire’ itself, potentially creating new, healthier patterns of thought and behavior that are less dominated by anxiety.

Reduction in Overactive Brain Areas:

Anxiety disorders often involve overactivity in certain brain areas, such as the amygdala, which is associated with fear and emotional responses. Ketamine can help dampen this overactivity, leading to a reduction in anxiety symptoms. Ketamine also blocks NMDA receptor which can lead to a reduction in anxiety symptoms.

Psychological Effects:

Ketamine can produce dissociative effects, which some patients report as helping them gain new perspectives on their anxiety and stressors. This altered state of consciousness can sometimes facilitate therapeutic breakthroughs.

Benefits for PTSD

Disruption of Fear Memories:

Ketamine may disrupt the reconsolidation of fear memories, a key aspect of PTSD. When traumatic memories are recalled, they become ‘labile’ or malleable. Ketamine, given during this labile phase, may interfere with the re-strengthening of these memories, thus diminishing their emotional impact over time.

Emotional Detachment:

The dissociative effects of ketamine can create a sense of detachment or distance from emotional pain and traumatic memories. This temporary detachment might provide a window where patients can process their trauma more effectively in therapy.

Reduction in Avoidance Behaviors:

PTSD often involves avoidance behaviors, where individuals avoid certain places, people, or thoughts that remind them of the trauma. By reducing the emotional intensity of traumatic memories, ketamine may help patients engage more successfully in therapeutic interventions, like exposure therapy.
