You may be thinking about Ketamine treatments or you have started treatments and you are wondering if you are getting the most out of them. After all, it is a relatively new and costly treatment with different providers offering a wide array of protocols. To help make your treatment a positive experience and obtain the most benefit we asked some of our patients to share some helpful tips.
Be Prepared: “One thing that helped me especially during my stabilization treatments was to be prepared and relaxed on treatment day. I made sure I had my rides arranged and my evenings planned so it did not cause stress.”
Get Comfortable: “The treatments are long so it is important to be comfortable. I get my pillows and blanket in place and watch something very peaceful on the television. I prefer waterfalls or beach scenes with music. I wouldn’t recommend watching an intense or involved movie that needs concentration, this will allow your mind to wander naturally.”
Stay Positive: “It is important to start with an open mind and keep a positive attitude. I know that is hard when you are depressed or in pain. Ketamine Wellness Centers has an 80% success rate – believe that it will work for you!”
Relinquish Control: “It’s kind of a freaky feeling but I had to learn not to fight it. Feeling safe with the providers is important and we even worked out a hand signal if I felt the treatment got too strong so they could slow it down. Once I was able to relax and let the Ketamine do all the work I achieved much better results.”
Stay on Track: “I made the mistake of not following the suggested maintenance program. I couldn’t remember the last time I had felt so good but I ignored the signs of slipping back into depression and put off a maintenance treatment longer than I should have.”
Make Changes: “The Ketamine allowed me to consider making life changes that I put off for too long. I re-engaged my therapist. I had the energy to start walking again and the motivation to eat healthy. This plus getting off anti-depressants helped me lose 35 pounds!”
