Ketamine Virtual Reality Therapy

How it Works

Ketamine works by interrupting communication between neurons in the brain and the spinal cord, allowing the central nervous system to reset. With additional VR visualization during ketamine treatment, it will enhance the experience of ketamine with the hopes of leading to a lasting perspective change.


What to Expect

The patient rests in a quiet, comfortable environment and watches a relaxing 60-minute VR visualization while the ketamine is administered via IV. 


Ketamine has been used safely for over 40 years, is FDA-indicated, and has been gaining attention with major institutions like Harvard University, Stanford University, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Time Magazine thanks to intriguing new studies.


In one study, three-quarters of patients experiencing suicidal ideation reported losing these dangerous thoughts after just one treatment, while two-thirds of patients with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder were restored to a pre-depressive state after a full course of treatments.

Side Effects

Side effects are rare, generally mild, and easily preventable with premedication during the infusion. Occasionally, nausea, headaches, and mild dreams may occur, all of which are easily treated.
