People with various chronic pain and mood disorders can find relief from their debilitating symptoms at Ecstasis Ketamine and Wellness. The health center offers ketamine infusion therapy for patients that have not found recovery through traditional medicine. Conditions they treat at the clinic include depression, major anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, migraines, and other chronic pain conditions.
Ecstasis Ketamine and Wellness is led by Dr. Jean Snyder and Dr. Howard Goodwin. The two medical professionals also co-own Goodwin and Snyder Anesthesia Associates PLLC. Dr. Snyder and Dr. Goodwin have over five decades of combined experience in healthcare and healing. The two utilize the latest in cutting-edge health advancements such as ketamine therapy to help their patients regain a sense of control of their health and conditions.
Patients will receive infusion therapy in a private room with constant mechanical monitoring of heart rate, blood oxygen saturation percentages, and blood pressure. Infusion therapy means an IV will be placed and an appropriate dose of ketamine will be administered over a 40 min time frame or longer. Practitioners are able to see a patient’s vital signs from the monitors at all times from the nursing station. However, patients will notice that a practitioner will enter the patient treatment room several times during the active phase of the infusion to monitor the depth of sedation and ensure patient comfort.
Most patients report a relaxing and peaceful experience. Patients will most likely experience changes in vision and their ability to clearly focus on objects or people, their speech will be slurred or slowed, and most will have an experience of floating or being disconnected.
Patients on average should expect to spend 90 to 120 minutes in the office allowing for the check-in procedure, the active phase of the infusion, and recovery time. Patients will need a trusted friend or family member to drive them home after their infusion. Patients may drive and return to work the next day. Patients may have a friend or family member in the treatment room during infusion, but this is not necessary.
