With an “environment designed for healing,” Therapeutic Alternatives in Salt Lake City, UT, offers life-changing ketamine therapy treatments for those suffering from difficult to manage pain and mental health conditions. The clinic treats a wide variety of health complaints with revolutionary intravenous or intramuscular procedures.
Ketamine has been in use as an anesthetic for half a century. More recent research has shown that sub-anesthetic doses have a remarkable positive effect on conditions that have resisted mainstream treatments or therapies. Therapeutic Alternatives ketamine therapy offers a research-driven, fast-acting alternative for those trying to regain control of their health and wellness. Ketamine allows “the mind to heal itself.”
Ketamine therapy at Therapeutic Alternatives was established by Candace Curzon and Austin Francom. After seeing firsthand in hospital settings the benefits of ketamine, Curzon and Francom opened their practice in order to provide this revolutionary treatment more widely. Both are trained in Ketamine Assisted Therapy (KAP), and believe that, as a part of a treatment plan, ketamine can have a life-changing effect on chronic sufferers.
The Therapeutic Alternatives clinic is “comfortable,” “curative,” and “connected,” ensuring a productive and safe healing environment. This attention to setting plays an important role in assuaging anxiety and allowing patients to draw the maximum benefit from their ketamine treatment.
As an added bonus, Sammy, the Ketamine Therapy Dog, is on staff for those who may need some canine comfort!
Ketamine is administered either through injection or IV, and takes effect almost immediately. Possible side effects of the treatment include feelings of dissociation or floating. These, and other effects, are normal and fade soon after the treatment finishes.
Throughout the treatment, patients are monitored by a provider. A therapist and nurse are on site should the need arise. Many patients report significant positive change after only one treatment.
Unlike mainstream medications, ketamine treatments at Therapeutic Alternatives promote the repair of neural connections in the brain, rather than simply dulling their signals. For many individuals, mainstream medications have little beneficial effect on the symptoms of their conditions. Such conditions are termed chronic, or treatment-resistant, and have shown reduction in symptoms through sub-anesthetic doses of ketamine.
