The medical clinic now offers ketamine infusion therapy as the centerpiece of a 5-part program designed to help patients address treatment-resistant depression as well as postpartum depression and PTSD. The drug resets the brain’s chemistry and blocks certain receptors for anxiety and depression, and the program works by integrating intentional, focused therapy and follow-up work after each session.

Ketamine IV infusion therapy, as administered by Dr. Sara Herman, the clinic’s founder, provides a much more consistent and quicker absorption rate of the medication directly into the bloodstream. This allows for a more reliable and effective treatment of depression, as the effects of the medication can be felt almost immediately.
Ketamine works, in part, by increasing levels of glutamate, a neurotransmitter that plays a major role in learning, memory, and mood regulation. Several experts credit the changes in how people perceive themselves–and the breaking of maladaptive ways of thinking and behaving–to the glutamate spike.
“Ketamine relaxes the mind and gives you a break from your cyclical thoughts and stories. But it also does a lot more,” the company explained on its website. “Ketamine effectively reboots the brain, which reacquaints you with your foundation, values, and intentions.”

However, people who have been struggling with disempowering thoughts have built strong negative feedback loops over time. As a result, healing and repair take time and require integration between ketamine sessions to build and support these healthy new connections. Patients at Soft Reboot Wellness are guided throughout the process. In the last 30 minutes of the patient’s session, team members will transition him or her out of the infusion experience and into the next stage of the journey: integration.
Regular follow-up during and after ketamine therapy is critical to therapeutic effectiveness and provides the best chance for long-term recovery. To stay in touch between meetings, Soft Reboot Wellness uses the Osmind mood-tracking app.
