The Lighthouse Wellness Spa, also known as Anesthesia Services of Meriden, provides ketamine infusion therapy to people battling treatment-resistant pain and mood disorders. The medical professionals at the health center understand how debilitating the symptoms of chronic pain and mood disorders can be. Their main goal is to use ketamine to help their patients overcome their symptoms and regain control over their health. By offering breakthrough ketamine treatments, the health center can help people with depression, anxiety, migraines, and post-traumatic stress disorder find relief from their symptoms.
The clinic is led by Dr. Frank Ferrer, a board-certified Anesthesiologist and Pain Management physician. With over four decades of experience, Dr. Ferrer has the knowledge and compassion to help those who continue to suffer after traditional forms of treatment. He and the medical staff at Lighthouse Wellness Spa are passionate about helping their patients heal from their conditions.
To deliver ketamine into your body, Dr. Ferrer introduces an intravenous (IV) line into your arm. Specific doses of ketamine slowly infuse into your bloodstream over the course of several hours.
Ketamine binds to receptors in your brain to stop pain signals. When treating mental health issues, ketamine also helps build new neural connections that improve your thoughts and emotions.
During your treatment, you might experience side effects like dizziness, nausea, and hallucinations. Many people also note feeling detached from their bodies. These side effects typically resolve on their own shortly after your therapy is complete.
To get the most benefit from your ketamine therapy, Dr. Ferrer customizes a treatment plan that typically involves a series of infusions over the course of several days. Throughout your infusion, he carefully monitors your breathing and heart rate for your safety.
