Ketamine Wellness Center Q&A

What is a ketamine wellness center?

A ketamine wellness center is a health clinic that provides all the services people undergoing ketamine therapy need to gain the most benefits from treatment.

Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic used as a general anesthetic for surgery. But ketamine also treats other health conditions like chronic pain and severe depression.

Ketamine attaches to the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, preventing the neurotransmitter glutamate from binding to the site. Glutamate is a chemical that helps nerve cells communicate with each other.

By blocking NMDA, ketamine increases glutamate levels in the brain, forcing neurotransmitters to form new neural pathways to communicate. Researchers theorize that these new neural pathways are how ketamine improves conditions like depression and pain.
