Ketamine Assisted Craniosacral Therapy

We are now offering a brand new paradigm in personal development and trauma resolution. Ketamine Assisted Craniosacral Therapy.

We are not currently in a position to provide ketamine for our clients. However are very happy to work with those who have their own medication supplied by their doctor. Many doctors are now prescribing ketamine lozenges/troches for treatment resistant depression. You can bring these with you to your session and we will be happy to lead you through the process.

By aligning with the golden rule of psychedelic use, Set and Setting, we make sure that the environment, the therapists and the session itself are all geared towards assisting the client in undergoing the most profound and transformative experience possible.

Psychedelic assisted psychotherapy, using MDMA and Psilocybin primarily, has been popular concept for some time now. More recently ketamine assisted psychotherapy, ketamine therapy and ketamine assisted psychotherapy have become the new darlings of the healing world. All have been shown to offer good results, particularly with PTSD and depression. Early trials performed by MAPS (The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) have been promising and the potential of psychedelics has really begun to show itself.

With Ketamine Assisted Craniosacral Therapy we have tapped into the best of both worlds. Ketamine is a perfect tool for use with therapy because of it’s ease of dosing, lack of comedown or hangover, short duration and relatively comforting experience. Many report that the state found in a ketamine experience is similar to that of CST, a deeply relaxing and comforting dive into the inner realms of being. Craniosacral Therapy itself has been shown to be an excellent approach for trauma resolution because of it’s gentleness and subtle power to resolve trauma at the root in a relatively stress free way. When the two are combined in the correct setting with a competent therapist the result is exponentially transformative. For more details about why see the blog.

We begin with a single, low dose session to assess the client’s response and suitability. Subsequent sessions will be a medium dose, sometimes two. We recommend a 6 session course of treatments one week apart if deemed beneficial. The final session being an assimilation and grounding treatment without ketamine. Clients undergo a brief questionnaire before and after the full course of treatments to quantify improvement of symptoms.

Ketamine has been widely used as a painkiller in extreme circumstances and is safe for the young and elderly because of it’s low rate of interference with heart rate and blood pressure. Ketamine also has a range of benefits on the brain directly and is said to help short term regrowth of the synapses. It has also been shown to help with neuroplasticity and may assist the rapid rewiring of the brain and it’s circuitry.

Good evidence exists that Ketamine Therapy helps alleviate the symptoms of:

  • Severe Depression
  • Severe PTSD
  • Anxiety Disorder
  • OCD
  • Drug addiction rehabilitation

There is less but still strong scientific evidence existing for the following disorders:

  • Severe bipolar disorder
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Severe OCD
  • Post-herpetic neuralgia
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Central pain syndromes related to stroke or trauma
  • Chronic migraine headaches
  • And much more

When Ketamine Hydrochloride and Craniosacral Therapy are used in synthesis the clients perceptual reality and their physiological state both undergo a deep surrender and relaxation. This resets the central nervous system, allows the mind, emotions and body to let go of the habitual patterns of dysfunctional response and puts things back in their normal, harmonious state of being. From there the client’s innate healing wisdom is able to do the work it knows how to.

Imagine having a deep cut. The doctor will stitch it back together but that is all they can do. The doctor does none of the actual healing. All of the new tissue growth, infection resistance and reconfiguration of nerve and cardiovascular pathways is done by the body’s own wisdom. The intelligence that grew a single cell into a full adult body and kept it alive and healthy the whole time is the same wisdom that heals. This is what we are tapping into. Once we bring the full being, physical, emotional and mental, back into homeostasis this innate healing wisdom is able to do what only it knows how to.

We are very excited to be able to offer this unique and pioneering combination of healing modalities. If you have any questions please send us an email and we will be happy to answer them.
