A common question we get from patients new to ketamine is “Can’t I just get one infusion?”. In short, no, we do not allow new patients to get just one infusion for treatment unless it’s a booster or the patient has already completed a series of infusions elsewhere.
The reasoning for this is plain and simple, one infusion just isn’t as effective nor long-lasting. Research shows that one or two infusions do not have the same effect as completing a series of six infusions in a period of two to three weeks. Once a patient does complete their treatment plan, they will only need to report back for a booster which is completed as needed (typically every 2-3 months).
Just as you need to practice a sport before you are good at it, your brain needs multiple infusions before it can create new transformational connections within the synapses. Completing a series of infusions allows your brain to create transformational changes through your central nervous system, transforming thoughts, emotions, and the way you process them.
After people complete their infusion treatment plan, some patients feel inspired to improve their overall health and wellness. After multiple requests, we decided to begin offering vitamin infusions that provide multiple benefits such as immunity boosts, performance recovery, energy boost, hydration boost, B12 injections, and more!

After your treatment plan, you will feel your symptoms subside for about 2-3 months. Once you do feel them creeping back, you will know it’s time to schedule a booster. Check out our blog post: “When Should I Get a Ketamine Booster?”.
Although it may seem overwhelming to dedicate two weeks of your busy life to infusion therapy, this is the best way to receive the most amount of benefits from it.
