Ketamine Therapy

Help Is Finally Here.

“Trauma Comes Back As A Reaction, Not A Memory.”-Bessel Van Der Kolk

Ketamine has been used for many decades as a safe anesthetic in most Emergency Rooms and battlefields, as it has no effects on decreasing your heart rate or respiration. There is new scientific evidence that has found ketamine to be an effective therapy for many mental health and pain disorders. The doses that are used for mood and pain disorders are minimally sedating. While you do not need a referral from your mental health provider, it is recommended that ketamine therapy is paired with talk therapy. The neuro-physical benefit of ketamine coupled with spiritual, emotional, and cognitive therapy will make the benefits that much greater.

Dr. Bramwell became interested in this use of ketamine to treat her own battles with depression. She has a personal connection to this therapy and special empathy for anyone who has experienced this medical problem.


Oral Ketamine consults are done via telehealth. The medication is taken in the comfort of your home.

IV Ketamine is done in Chatham, NJ. The address will be provided upon booking the infusion.

Past traumas can manifest as mood and physical disorders. We must deal with the effects of these past traumas in order to heal. Ketamine has found a new use as a treatment option for many treatment-resistant conditions. Conditions that may benefit from ketamine therapy include the following:


Bipolar Disorder

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Chronic Pain Syndrome

Complex Regional Pain Disorder (CRPD)

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


Neuropathic Pain


Headaches, Migraine

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

How Soon Will I See A Difference?

Infusion protocols are 40 minutes per session. Induction therapy consists of six treatments done over a 3 or 4-week time span. Many people feel improvement from just one or two treatment sessions. Most people feel significant improvement after the third treatment. The wonderful news about ketamine is that you feel the benefits immediately after you leave our office. People describe a lifting of their depression, a lessening of physical pain, a slight euphoria, and overall optimism.

Depression, anxiety, PTSD, and pain are all due to past traumas. Ketamine alters the brain chemistry such that negative feelings and sensations are diminished. However, ketamine therapy works best when used in conjunction with the mainstream therapies of talk, spiritual, and cognitive therapy. You must deal with your past traumas in order to heal your mental and physical health. Ketamine facilitates this healing but it is only one of the pieces of the overall puzzle.


The protocol consists of six one-hour treatments given over a 3 week time span and then as needed for maintenance.

Cost is $350 per treatment for IV ketamine. This is the lowest price in the surrounding area.

Oral ketamine pricing is on the Nuelife webpage you can click on the top heading of this page.

We will perform a baseline evaluation of your pain and/or mood scale. We use specialized software to monitor your progress so we have objective data to guide the treatments.

You will need a ride home from our office after the IV ketamine infusion. We do not allow anyone to drive themselves home.

Cost Of Therapy

suntrees 1

IV Ketamine therapy is not covered by insurance in-network. We charge $350 per one-hour infusion, as direct payments. The fee for the initial consultation with the medical director is $100.

The cost of ketamine therapy is an investment, but it is actually a cost-benefit when you consider the time and money it takes to use conventional medicine which takes months to work, if it works at all. You will know in one to three sessions if ketamine works for you. Booster protocols are weekly or monthly, and some protocols are as needed.

We have partnered with Nue Life to provide at home oral Ketamine therapy, available in Arizona and New Jersey. To be contacted for pricing and more information click here.

Potential Side Effects

Ketamine is generally safe and well-tolerated. We use standard doses that result in mild sedation. Most unpleasant sensations can be mitigated by slowing the infusion rate and lowering the dose. All sessions are closely monitored with a continuous patient monitor device. Bloodwork is generally not required but may be requested. Possible adverse reactions to Ketamine include:

Increase in blood pressure and/or heart rate/ head ache and/ or dizziness (We can administer anti-hypertensive medicine to troubleshoot this)

Sense of disassociation which means feeling disconnected from yourself, disconnected from feelings, thoughts, space, or time (this is a “good” side effect. This is one of the goals of therapy)

Unpleasant emotional reaction (Ketamine may bring out past trauma and this occurrence is a step towards your recovery because past traumas need to be purged and dealt with. The word depression means “pushing down” your emotions. Your emotions need to come to the surface in order for you to heal.)

Sleepiness and Sedation

Head pain and/or dizziness

Nausea and Vomiting (We can give you an anti-nausea medicine to prevent this)


Diarrhea or constipation, indigestion

Arm discomfort, bruising, infiltration
