Depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders can be extremely debilitating. And while traditional treatments like therapy and medication can be helpful, they don't work for everyone. That's where Ketamine-assisted therapy from Blossom comes into play.
IV Only Ketamine Model
Ketamine has been found to be an extremely effective tool in treating depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders. Despite the fact that there are alternative options like sublingual or intranasal Ketamine, the IV Ketamine model is still popular. The majority of people use IV Ketamine without psychotherapy. For some purposes, this may be appropriate, but our opinion is based on research suggesting that medicines alone have poorer results than medicine combined with psychotherapy for many issues. IV Ketamine is a single therapy medicine of relationship, insight, and discovery without psychotherapy.
Ketamine-assisted therapy is done with a therapist/guide. Before Ketamine is used, the client and therapist/guide get to know each other to develop trust. In the beginning sessions, the aim is for clients to feel comfortable sharing their life stories, journey, and motivations with their therapist. Then, within that trusting space, a therapist learns where a person is in their journey and how best to support them through Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.
The Benefits of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, which couples the study of Ketamine's biology with psychotherapy techniques, provides an opportunity for people to explore their unconscious. This model seeks to minimize the medical aspects associated with treatments and provide a more comfortable setting, similar to someone's home. For example, studies have shown that dim lighting and soothing music can help patients relax and better internalize the experience.
