Hypnotherapy During Ketamine Infusion Treatments

Hypnotherapy During Ketamine Infusion Treatments

For people already struggling with anxiety, Ketamine infusion therapy can seem overwhelming.  It is a catch-22 that even the thought of something that may help your anxiety can cause a panic attack and deter you from this revolutionary treatment.  Anxiety can cause physical symptoms such as a spike in blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, nausea, and headaches. If you suffer from high anxiety, it is important to manage these symptoms prior to and during your ketamine infusion.  Hypnotherapy may be incredibly beneficial to get you through your treatments naturally, safely, and calmly.

Hypnotherapy is based on the relationship between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind has no power to reason and therefore accepts and acts upon any fact or suggestion given to it. This is why hypnotherapy is so effective, it provides reprogramming of the subconscious mind which allows positive change at the subconscious level.  I have used hypnotherapy at the beginning of a ketamine treatment in patients struggling with the symptoms of extreme anxiety.  By combining a breathing technique and guided imagery anxiety levels decrease significantly, and vital signs lower and stabilize.  Patients now feel comfortable, relaxed, and safe throughout the remainder of the treatment.

We all have the fight or flight mode.  Our bodies can’t relax and have anxiety at the same time. Concentrating on our breathing overcomes the anxiety which allows one to go into a relaxed state of mind.  Once in the relaxed state, I guide the patient into positive imagery with positive suggestions that the subconscious mind holds on to and wants to act upon.

The subconscious mind is creative, intuitive, irrational, and emotional.  It is responsible for storing your memories for all the experiences you have ever had, as well as containing your values, core beliefs about yourself, every thought and emotion.  It also becomes the place we store our negative thoughts and behaviors.  We all have experienced the influence of suggestion, and hypnosis uses that natural process to change negative patterns into positive patterns of behavior. During hypnosis, the provider cannot make you do anything that you normally would not allow yourself to do. As you relax you remain in control of yourself and are aware of what is going on around you.

After your first few treatments, you can expect to become familiar with the process, trust the providers, and become confident that everything will be fine.  Ketamine infusion therapy may be the treatment you need to create long-lasting relief from your anxiety and hypnotherapy may give you the strength and the opportunity to try it.
