Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Powerful, effective relief from depression, anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain

Get your life back and feel like yourself again.

what is Ketamine Therapy?

Ketamine is a medication that was originally used as an anesthetic, but in more recent years has been studied as a treatment for mental disorders and pain that is resistant to other drugs and therapies. Ketamine IV infusions are now growing in popularity as people are realizing their powerful effects on depression, anxiety, pain, and more.

how ketamine works in the brain

Ketamine affects a wide range of processes within the brain and has a significant effect on specific receptors and neurotransmitters. While the drug causes an initial dissociative experience, it’s been discovered that significant benefits extend far past the administration of Ketamine – this is why it’s so effective for mental conditions and pain. The benefits don’t stop once the infusion is over.

Is Ketamine therapy right for you?

Here are a few signs you might be a good fit for this treatment:
You’ve been resistant to conventional treatments for anxiety, depression, and pain

If your response to traditional medications or other therapies has been disappointing and ineffective, Ketamine may be a logical next step.

You want quick relief with few side effects

Since infusions provide an instant effect, you’re a good fit if you need quick relief.

You can come in for maintenance treatments

Like most medical treatments, it’s never a one-and-done deal. Patients who are willing to follow a plan that includes maintenance infusions are a good fit for Ketamine therapy.

You’re ok with paying out of pocket

Our hope is that eventually insurance will recognize the immense benefits of Ketamine and cover it 100% for mental and physical conditions. At the moment, however, the infusions aren’t typically covered by health insurance companies and must be paid for by the patient.

What our clients say about us...
Paul fixes TMJ, and undoubtedly has a gift when it comes to healing. After a few sessions with him, my headaches, insomnia, and lockjaw decreased significantly, more than justifying the cost associated with his services. He also taught me at-home practices that I can do on my own to alleviate symptoms when they arise, and I left his practice feeling all around educated and more in touch with what I was actually dealing with.”

When I first went to Paul for my TMJ I was honestly pretty skeptical. This had been an issue for me since I was in high school. I had been to several different dentists and tried several different mouth guards and nothing had ever worked.
When Paul told me he could get me relief in just a few hours I thought to myself "there is now way." Sure enough, after my first session I woke up the next day completely pain free.
I actually didn't know how bad the pain and tightness was, until it was gone. I chewed gum, ate an apple, and made it the entire day without a headache. I don't know what it is that Paul does, but it is magic. I highly recommend him.
Samantha Bryant
Mojo Physio is the best! Before I met Paul, I have had muscle pain for continuous years. After a few back to back treatments, I noticed a significant change. I have told anyone and everyone I know, or meet that has muscle pain to go see Paul. I am a dedicated customer and will continue to go to Mojo Physio.
Veronica Martinez
I have chronic TMJ and have suffered from throbbing facial/jaw pain/dentail pain. IN the past, doctors have prescribed painkillers, vitamins, multiple mouth guards - none of which have eased my pain. My dentist recommended I give Paul a try. I was very skeptical but after my first appointment I started to get relief.
Jennifer Michaels
I had the pleasure of meeting and receiving treatment from Paul Ruth in February 2019. Not only did he completely get rid of my neck and jaw pain, of 30+ years, but he also straightened my leg that caused sciatic nerve pinching. You are wasting time and money if you don't go and check his work out. I am forever grateful for my pain-free future. Thank you Paul, you're the best!
Ann McMaster
As a dentist, I know how the muscles on the face and Temporomandibular Complex can affect a patient's wellbeing. As a patient, I know how debilitating it can be! The muscles of the head, neck and shoulders are all interrelated. Seeing Paul Ruth over the years not only alleviated much of my pain, but enabled me to actually work more comfortably for years. I highly recommend him to all. Thanks Paul!

I'm overall just happier! It's really that simple. Paul's treatments are simplistic and pure, but it's also the most effective in my experience. He has me as a client for life. I truly can not continue to practice dentistry without him. He fixed my own TMJ in only two sessions and I only refer my TMJ patients to Paul.

I have had TMJ since I was 12 years old with jaw/neck pain, limited mobility, clenching, and headaches. I tried many different therapies to relieve the pain. Orthodontia, Acupuncture, chiropractors etc... all with little to no relief. Then someone recommended Paul Ruth at Mojo Physio. After my first session with him, I was pain free for days. That was the first time in a long time I had been pain free. I continued sessions with Paul based on his recommendation. I am virtually pain free these days. It's so amazing to have relief from the pain and headaches. Thanks to Mojo Physio, my life has changed!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Ketamine?

As one the most widely used medications for safe sedation across the globe, Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic for 50+ years. It’s preferred by physicians because it doesn’t suppress the respiratory system or lower blood pressure like other anesthesia drugs do. It’s continuing to gain traction as a treatment for mental and pain conditions.

How exactly does Ketamine work?

While the exact mechanism of action isn’t completely clear, we do know Ketamine is an NMDA Receptor Antagonist. This essentially means that it binds to these receptors in the place of other neurotransmitters – one outcome of this is the increase in Glutamate (a neurotransmitter). This process is thought to have several distinct effects:

  1. Strengthen signals between neurons that affect learning and memory
  2. Creating GABA, a calming neurotransmitter
  3. Ketamine helps block pain signals as it binds to NMDA receptors
  4. To put it simply, Ketamine calms the entire nervous system
What will I feel during an infusion?

Many patients describe Ketamine infusions as a dissociative, almost “out of body” experience (in a pleasant way). You’ll feel calm and relaxed, and those benefits will continue even after the infusion is complete.

Are Ketamine infusions safe?

Absolutely. You’ll be closely monitored by trained medical personnel, and your vital signs like blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and heart rate are monitored for the entirety of the session.

Are there any side effects?

Because everyone is different in how their bodies react to certain medications, some people may experience side effects. The most common side effects are high blood pressure, nausea, headache, and perceptual disturbances. We’ll evaluate your tolerance to the infusion to minimize any unwanted side effects.

A medical professional will evaluate your health history and determine if you have any conditions that will prevent you from being able to try Ketamine.

Will my insurance cover it?

Insurance companies still consider Ketamine IV infusions experimental for mental health conditions, so typically they aren’t covered. However, the FDA has approved Ketamine for specific pain conditions, so check with your insurance company on coverage.

How many infusions will I need?

Every patient is different, so your treatment plan will depend on your health condition and how well you respond to the infusions. You may need anywhere from 1-3 infusions per week for a set number of weeks, with occasional “booster” infusions thereafter. You can discuss a treatment plan with our medical provider for a better idea of how many treatments you’ll need.
