What is ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine infusion therapy involves the administration of ketamine, a medication known for its anesthetic properties, through a slow intravenous drip. It is used off-label to treat conditions such as treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

Backed by extensive research and clinical evidence, ketamine has shown, for some, remarkable effectiveness in reducing the symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, and depression when other options have fallen short. Our experienced team at Integrative Health Matters administers ketamine infusions in a safe, private, comfortable environment, carefully tailored to each patient's unique needs. Through a series of treatments, individuals may experience improvements in mood, mental health, and overall well-being.

Our highly trained medical team is ready to work with you. The IHM Ketamine Infusion Therapy program is directed by physician Kevin G. May, MD. Dr. May is board-certified in both internal medicine and integrative medicine. Dr. May also trained under Gerald W Grass MD, founder of the Ketamine Research Institute. The training Dr. May received through the Ketamine Research Institute is currently the only ketamine infusion training educational course that meets or exceeds all American Psychological Association and American Society of Anesthesiologists training recommendations.

Dr. May’s extensive experience as a physician and CMO at VA facilities in multiple states, as well as treating patients in private practice, makes him no stranger in understanding both the obvious and silent suffering many patients experience with depression, PTSD, and anxiety. From your initial consultation with Dr. May to follow-up appointments, he prioritizes open communication, ensuring you feel supported every step of the way.
