Are you suffering from a mental health condition that just won’t go away? Have you tried all the usual treatments and none of them work? Shakti Therapy & Healing Services (424-336-0984) can help, with Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy that’s effective against the most stubborn conditions.
Did you know that many mental health conditions that won't respond to traditional treatments, like depression, PTSD, and even anxiety, will often respond to a combination of ketamine and therapy?
You might have heard of Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) because it's been breaking down mental barriers and helping people regain control over their lives, ever since researchers first realized just how effective it can be.
What you might not know, is that there's a specialist clinic that offers this service right here in Culver City, at Shakti Therapy & Healing Services.

I'm not a ketamine researcher myself, but I can tell you a little bit about how it works, and why Shakti Therapy is the place to get this new treatment.
The reason I suggest Shakti Therapy is simple: They don't just hand out the medicine, they walk you through the entire recovery.
Let me explain. When you first show up, their experts will do a thorough review and assessment to make sure that this treatment is the right one for you. Assuming that checks out, you move on to steps 2, 3, and 4, where the transformative magic happens.
Step 2 involves working with a therapist, before your ketamine treatment, to build up trust and set intentions, make a plan, and prepare for step 3.
Step 3 is where the actual ketamine treatment happens, and for this step, it's important to be in the hands of trained professionals. At Shakti Therapy, they have specially trained therapists with extensive experience in psychoactive therapy, and in helping people who have altered states of consciousness.
The reason that's important is because as I've mentioned, ketamine is a psychoactive compound, and that means that you could "trip" during this part of the treatment. Now don't worry, you'll be monitored and cared for throughout the entire experience, so it's entirely safe, and the side effects only last a few hours.
The most important step comes next, and everything else is really just preparation for that.
Step 4 is what they call "Integration," and it's where you'll work with your therapist to integrate and lock in the benefits of the treatment. While this is the most important step according to the research, it's one that many clinics don't include, and that's why I never recommend anywhere for this treatment, except Shakti Therapy.
Speaking of the research, why don't we briefly discuss what it says?
I'm just going to share a few quick notes, but you can find a link to the clinic, and the full study I referenced, at the bottom of this blog.
It shows that, when combined with therapy, ketamine can “initiate and prolong clinically significant reductions in pain, anxiety, and depressive symptoms”(1),
This is because, while research is still ongoing, evidence suggests that “Despite much variance in how KAP is applied… findings suggest psychotherapy, provided before, during, and following ketamine sessions, can maximize and prolong benefits.”(1)
Of course, ketamine therapy isn't for everyone, and if you're not sure, it's a good idea to talk to a specialist about it.
My advice is simple: if you think that you, or a loved one, might be able to benefit from KAP where other treatments have failed, just ask about it. You can schedule a free consultation over the phone with a specialist from Shakti Therapy, or, you can take a free, quick quiz on their website.
Now obviously, the quiz can't provide you with a valid medical assessment, but it is a quick way to determine if this treatment may be for you, before you schedule a consultation - because it helps to eliminate many cases where KAP may not be helpful.
Just remember that ketamine treatments should only be administered by trained professionals to be considered safe. Some minor side effects may be expected, such as mild nausea, dizziness, derealization, and drowsiness, which usually fade quickly after a treatment session.
That means no long-lasting negative side effects and no pills or medications to take every day.
