How does it work?

Ketamine infusion therapy is an effective treatment option for depression that works differently than traditional antidepressants. Instead of waiting weeks for improvement, ketamine can provide relief in just hours to a few days. By targeting specific brain receptors and boosting the release of a neurotransmitter called glutamate, increased connections in the brain occur, promoting neuroplasticity, which is essential for overcoming depression. It also stimulates the release of a brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) protein, which helps our brain’s health and mood regulation. Again, ketamine infusion therapy is part of a comprehensive approach to healing. Our healthcare professionals closely monitor its use to ensure safety and effectiveness.
