Why Ketamine?

Understanding the miracle drug.

Is Ketamine Therapy for me?

  • Do you suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD, suicidal thoughts?
  • Do you feel disconnected, isolated or stuck in a loop of negative thoughts?
  • Are you lacking purpose, drive or have the “blah” feeling?
  • Are you dependent on alcohol, antidepressants or opiates?
  • Do you suffer from insomnia or brain fog?
  • Is your job or a life event stressing you out?
  • Are you generally ok, but just suffer bouts of depression and need a spark to kickstart your motors?

If any of these apply to you then Ketamine therapy is a great and safe solution to reset and recover. 

How Effective is Ketamine?

Over the decades, Ketamine has proven to be one of the most versatile and effective drugs ever for mood disorders. Multiple studies at prominent universities and research centers show Ketamine being about 74% effective. Here at Ketamine Lounge with our unique protocols, procedures and ultra-comfortable settings, we have an approximate 85% success rate in improving mood disorders, which in the medical world is outstanding. Approximately 90% of our new patients sign up for repeat treatments. 

However, Ketamine is not for everyone and around 15% of patients do not experience any significant benefit. Everyone is designed and wired differently so some patients feel the benefit from the very first treatment and others can take a few treatments before they get a breakthrough.

Ketamine + Therapy = Optimal Outcome

What to expect

Expect a profound mind shift and soul changing mystical experience. Ketamine provides a gateway where you may feel awake but you transcend different layers of consciousness as your ego is set aside allowing your real self to dominate and exist in your purest and simplest form. You may have an out of body experience and some may visit new or familiar places, events or people. Generally the experience is calm, relaxing, thought provoking and can be filled with abstract visuals and spaces in incredible detail that are constantly moving. Often times deeply suppressed trauma or bothersome matters are bought to the forefront and you are able to effectively process and resolve them in short order. 

The resulting mind shift leads to changes in your way of thinking, daily actions and how you perceive yourself, others and the world. In turn, harmful negative loops are broken and intrusive thoughts are disrupted allowing a breakthrough for a new you to blossom. 

Furthermore, over the next day or two after treatment, the Ketamine drug itself changes the chemistry in your brain and creates new neural pathways. This is known as neuroplasticity, neurogenesis or neurosynapsis and parts of your brain become active again typically leading to more clarity, creativity, calmness, energy, less anxiety and depression.


Whether it’s a lifelong battle or recent-onset symptoms, depression and mental illness can be profoundly life-altering and impede the enjoyment of everyday things. Depression can make even the simplest of tasks like getting out of bed seem impossible.

We often encounter patients who have tried a host of medications before and can’t seem to find the light at the end of the tunnel.


Few people who have anxiety and depression seek treatment and continue to live life not knowing how to address issues that arise as a result of their anxiety.

Whether you have struggled to balance your anxiety all your life or you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety for the first time, Ketamine may provide an alternative treatment model for you that is relatively fast acting and effective.


Post-traumatic stress disorder, better known as PTSD, is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, frightening, or traumatic event. PTSD causes chemical imbalances in the brain that triggers symptoms such as fear, extreme anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, and emotional detachment.

Those suffering from PTSD may not respond well to traditional therapies such as antidepressant medication or counselling. For many individuals with PTSD, it can be hard to get through their day-to-day lives successfully connecting to other people.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a disorder where intrusive thoughts and obsessions drive a person to perform mental and physical acts to relieve anxiety or stress. It is a subtype of anxiety disorder that can be extremely distressing.

Individuals with OCD may not respond well to traditional therapies such as antidepressant medication, behavior therapy, anxiolytics and counseling.


Insomnia can be a debilitating issue. If you’ve tried all of the over-the-counter drugs & prescription treatments and none of them seem to help you sleep, you know how frustrating and exhausting it can be.

Recent studies have shown that Ketamine therapies can help to alleviate the symptoms of sleeplessness, making it possible for you to finally get a break from sleepless nights.

Stress Management

If you're tired of feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and exhausted all the time, it is time to take control.

When you live in a high-stress environment, it can take its toll on your mental and physical health. Our Ketamine therapies offer relief and assistance with managing stress, without the side effects of traditional treatments.


People often neglect themselves in their relationships, and we can help them break the self-defeating thought patterns. We use Ketamine to temporarily change the way your brain works and make it easier for you to remain in the right mindset while living, working, and experiencing life with others.

We encourage couples to undergo our treatment simultaneously and the new bond and perspectives attained typically strengthen and blossom their relationships.

Alcoholism & Addiction

If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, don't give up hope.

Our Ketamine program has been proven to be extremely effective at helping those who want to overcome their addiction. We have effective tapering programs for alcohol, opiates and other medications using the power of ketamine to help manage the withdrawal symptoms.
