What does Ketamine feel like?

February 10, 20231 min read

Ketamine has many effects on brain structures, but the medication can also cause a profound and transformative experience while receiving the medication. During the psychedelic experience, many patients have an altered state of mind or are in a dream-like state which can be emotional and powerful.

The ketamine experience can be anywhere from dark and boring to colorful and euphoric, depending on the individual.. Patient's who can trust or submit to the ketamine experience often come out of their session with a deeper sense of self and wellbeing. Patients are able to see their experience as the one they are needing at the time. Our staff can help support and comfort you if your experience is intense and you need help moving through it.

Patients have described ketamine as helping them have a deeper connection with god, higher being, or the universe. Patient's have described visions and can sometimes experience a replay of memories. Ketamine can also alter sense of time and future, provide out-of-body experiences, and can release deep emotions, altering a sense of self. Ketamine can also initiate a separation from worries and insecurities and promote trust in self and others.
