At Shaman’s Leawood, we truly believe your mental health and physical health are interconnected. Ketamine Therapy may provide immediate relief for patients with major depression, postpartum depression, severe anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar depression, and even pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Ketamine treatments have been proven to redevelop the neural pathways in your brain that have been damaged by mental health issues, trauma or chronic pain conditions. Unlike the standard methods of medication such as antidepressants, ketamine is non-addictive — however, you do not have to change current medications for this treatment to work. Ketamine infusions have been shown to provide immediate relief of symptoms in up to 70% of patients after only a single treatment. Treatments provide a calming effect that has been shown to positively affect those with mental illnesses, specifically those with anxiety or depression. Even after the last ketamine infusion, the effects on the person’s mood may be enhanced anytime from 1-2 weeks after.

At Shaman’s Leawood Total Wellness, we offer two infusions a week for a total of six infusions, given intravenously by a licensed and trained specialist. Patients will work with our team on an individualized treatment plan. Each treatment usually lasts about 40 minutes to an hour — though this varies from person to person. After as early as the first treatment, ketamine can severely reduce symptoms of chronic pain and mental health conditions.

Chronic Pain

This may include patients suffering from:

  • Migraines

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome /Reflex

  • Sympathetic Dystrophy

  • Chronic Back and Neck Pain

Treating patients with chronic pain can be complicated as each individual has different pain levels and individual medical histories. When first and second-line drugs such as opioids and prescription pain killers fail to provide satisfactory pain management for chronic pain, ketamine therapy has been shown to help. Pain relief rates depend on the pain condition and severity, but approximately two-thirds of patients have a meaningful response.

Mental Health Conditions:

This may include patients suffering from:

  • Major Depression

  • Suicidality*

  • Postpartum Depression

  • Severe Anxiety

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

When mental health issues have consumed your life, we understand the overwhelming sense of helplessness when you’ve experienced little to no relief from your mental pain. Mental health issues can cause debilitating symptoms that interfere with a person’s life.

We truly believe your mental health and physical health are equally important when it comes to your well-being. Ketamine has been shown to improve symptoms and allow patients to go back to their normal activities sooner and with more control of their symptoms. Let us help you live a happier and healthier life.

Please note: There is not enough sufficient data to say that ketamine can be given to breastfeeding mothers. So, in an abundance of caution, we recommend NOT to breastfeed after ketamine infusions.
