Ketamine is a prescription medication typically used in surgery to keep you relaxed/sedated. In lower doses, ketamine is proven to rapidly reduce symptoms of mental health conditions like anxiety and treatment-resistant depression.
Infusions of ketamine increase levels of a neurotransmitter in your brain known as glutamate, which is essential for healthy brain function. Infusions also create new neural pathways in your brain to provide long-lasting symptom relief.
You might be a candidate for ketamine infusion therapy if you have treatment-resistant depression that isn’t manageable with traditional antidepressants and psychotherapy. Infusions of ketamine can rapidly ease suicidal thoughts and provide long-lasting relief of depression symptoms.

As a certified nurse anesthetist, Katherine can review your medical history and your symptoms to determine if ketamine infusions are right for you. Typically, you can expect to have a series of six infusions over a two-week period to relieve mental health symptoms.
Rejuvenate IV Therapy also offers several vitamin infusions that can boost your energy and rehydrate your body. To further improve your health, infusions are available to improve performance, decrease recovery time, provide anti-aging benefits, and boost hair and nail growth.
On the day of your infusion, Katherine helps you get comfortable in a reclining chair. She starts an intravenous (IV) line in your arm and delivers a slow-drip infusion of ketamine into your bloodstream.
Throughout your treatment, Katherine continues to monitor your vital signs and your comfort. After your infusion is complete, you can expect to remain in the office for an additional 15 minutes to allow you time to process your experience and thoughts.
You will need an adult to drive you home because your reflexes may be slower than usual after an infusion. You might experience nausea in the hours after your treatment. Other side effects of ketamine infusions include drowsiness, increased heart rate, and fatigue, which typically resolve within a few hours.
Some people may feel detached from reality after a ketamine infusion. If this happens, Katherine can provide a calming medication or decrease your infusion rate.
