Conditions They Treat: Fibromyalgia, chronic pain, depression
HealingMaps Says: This clinic offers both ketamine and TMS treatments. Founded in 2009 by Dr. Martha Koo, the Neuro Wellness Spa clinic in Manhattan Beach, California, offers ketamine therapy alongside a variety of other cutting-edge mood disorder treatments.
Costs: Contact clinic for pricing information. But here’s a general pricing guide so you know what to expect.
Patient/Testimonial: “TMS was a game changer for me. About 10 sessions in, I suddenly realized I was no longer waking up in the morning thinking “how many more hours until I can go to sleep again?” My mood lifted significantly and I was able to add in other treatment tactics (like therapy) effectively. Before I’d gotten TMS I was unable to concentrate on and appreciate other options and found them ineffective. It really helped me dig out of a hole and start living life again. I highly recommend checking out TMS with Neuro Wellness Spa as a treatment for depression and anxiety.” — Deb R. via Yelp
Do They Offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy? No.
Facility Highlights: Despite having the word “spa” in their name, this location is about as clinical as you can get. Very clean. Very nice looking, but not the warmest interior.
Are Female Practitioners Available? Yes!
Do They Accept Insurance? They are accepted my a lot of major insurance providers. They are able to do this because the only ketamine treatment they offer is Spravato, which is the nasal form of ketamine covered by most insurances. And they also offer TMS therapy, which is covered by many insurance plans, too.
Considered “arguably the most significant development in psychiatry during the past few decades,” ketamine treatments show remarkable positive benefits to individuals suffering from treatment-resistant forms of mental health complaints and/or chronic pain syndromes.
Ketamine operates on a different physiological system in the brain from other anti-depressants and pain medications, allowing the brain to rapidly create new pathways that circumvent ones created by repeated trauma or pain. Many patients report beneficial results after only one treatment, though most require a full course of treatments to achieve a long-lasting relief.
Neuro Wellness Spa offers this revolutionary treatment to patients in the South Bay and surrounding areas.
Founder and Medical Director Martha Koo, MD, has assembled an impressive team of experts at the Neuro Wellness Spa Manhattan Beach location. Dr. Koo is an expert in TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) for treating various mood disorders, and added ketamine treatments to the clinic’s roster after various research institutions released studies hailing the remarkable benefits of low-dose ketamine therapy on difficult to manage conditions.
The Manhattan Beach location features a private and expert setting for ketamine treatments, with a full range of medical monitoring equipment as well as comfortable chairs and treatment rooms.
Patients at the clinic are likely dealing with very difficult situations in their lives and their conditions, and the team at the Neuro Wellness Spa do all in their power to make the treatment a beneficial and relaxing healing experience.
Both the intravenous and nasal spray varieties of ketamine therapy are provided at the Neuro Wellness Spa offices. The initial consultation will determine which treatment is most appropriate, and at what dosages. This initial visit allows each treatment to be tailored to the individual patient.
IV infusions last approximately 40 minutes, while nasal treatments last about two hours. For both treatments, patients’ vitals are monitored throughout. Many patients feel a deep sense of relaxation during treatments.
Neuro Wellness Spa ketamine therapy provides a new pathway to healing for individuals whose conditions are “treatment refractory,” or treatment-resistant. The fast-acting nature of ketamine can bring relief to serious symptoms of pain and mental health conditions in only hours, as compared to the weeks taken by many oral antidepressants.
Driven by research and empirical evidence, the Neuro Wellness Spa offers this cutting-edge treatment to sufferers who need renewed hope.
