How Ketamine Therapy Works for Burnout

Ketamine offers rapid symptom relief by fostering neural plasticity and creating new neural connections. It “resets” the brain’s response to stress, opening doors to healing when other treatments have failed. 

By fostering new neural pathways, ketamine paves the way for sustainable recovery and a renewed sense of purpose in both personal and professional life; ketamine therapy can be a transformative tool to revitalize your spirit and regain control over your well-being.

Our process includes an initial consultation, preparation sessions, monitored ketamine infusions, and integration therapy for comprehensive care.

Ketamine Infusions Protocol

01

Medical Assessment

We assess your medical history and medication to confirm ketamine is an appropriate treatment. Pre-treatment testing can include urine and blood tests, blood pressure and EKG.

02

Preparation

Ketamine therapy is unlike any other treatment you are likely to have encountered, so preparing your mind and body for the experience is critical. We’ll give you information on how to cultivate a positive mindset in the weeks leading up to your journey. We will also encourage you to set an intention before each infusion—a goal or purpose for your journey that will help direct the experience and gather insights—and then “let go.”

03

Psychedelic Treatment Sessions

Nushama physicians or doctors typically administer 6 treatments/infusions over a 3-6 week period, receiving up to 2 infusions per week. The treatments take place in a serene environment with ambient music. Vitals and anesthesia levels are constantly monitored by Nushama doctors and nurses to ensure the highest level of safety.

04

Integration

Licensed therapists or trained integration coaches work with members with the intention of helping them glean insights after each journey to integrate into their daily lives. Integration can also include practices like yoga, journaling, meditation, mindfulness techniques, or listening to music from the treatment. The idea is to help individuals tap into their inner healer for lasting change.

05

Follow-up

If a member does not have a therapist (or would like additional support), Nushama therapists work with members to integrate learnings into their daily lives for lasting results. Some members may also benefit from additional “booster” sessions. Psychedelics are transformative medicines, but healing requires more than the experience of the journey.

Understanding Burnout

Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by prolonged and excessive stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose the interest or motivation that led you to take on a certain role in the first place.

What burnout looks like:
  • Emotional Signs: Feelings of detachment, increased cynicism, reduced personal accomplishment, and a sense of ineffectiveness.

  • Physical Symptoms: Chronic fatigue, insomnia, frequent illnesses, headaches, and muscle or back pain.

  • Behavioral Changes: Withdrawing from responsibilities, isolating oneself from others, procrastination, taking longer to get things done, and using food, drugs, or alcohol to cope.

 

The impact of burnout isn’t limited to work or any single area of life—it can permeate every aspect, affecting your relationships, daily activities, and overall satisfaction with life. Understanding these signs can help in taking early steps towards managing stress and preventing burnout’s progression. Ketamine therapy may support in times of feeling an overwhelming sensation of burnout and/or stress.
