The team at Palo Alto Mind Body stands ready to provide this revolutionary treatment.
Dr. M. Rameen Ghorieshi established the innovative Palo Alto Mind Body practice.

Of the approximately 16 million Americans who suffer from a depressive episode each year, approximately “one third do not respond to antidepressant medications.” Ketamine treatments are a fast-acting and research-driven alternative to mainstream antidepressants. They may provide the hope and healing that sufferers have been searching for.
Ketamine treatments at Palo Alto Mind Body take place in a quiet, private room. Patients are under constant supervision by a medical professional. Treatments last approximately 90 minutes, from arrival to the end of the infusion. As ketamine is a very fast-acting antidepressant, it should become apparent very quickly whether or not the treatments are having the intended effect. Some patients report significant positive changes only hours after treatment.
A majority of sufferers find relief from depressive symptoms with mainstream treatments. However, there are people whose conditions resist treatment. Ketamine therapy is an alternative for these individuals. Ketamine works on a separate system in the brain from most oral antidepressants. As a result, the brain becomes able to avoid and reroute pathways that have been worn in by years of pain and trauma.
