Created as the next generation of outpatient psychiatric facilities, providing effective psychiatric care with ketamine infusion treatment in Austin, Embracia guides, counsels, and treats discreetly and quickly with minimum interruption to your daily routine.

All of us lead a busy stressful lifestyle. Anyone could succumb to the pressures of modern fast-paced life. Whether you caved in to an addiction, or were afflicted by depression, anxiety, phobia, ADD, or bipolar disease, you will be coached to recovery by our experienced team of health providers.

We believe in a patient-centered approach. Our services are prompt (appointment available typically in 3 days), as well as convenient and highly confidential.

The treatment protocol we follow for ketamine infusions is upheld by peer-reviewed research and delivers relief for symptoms of major depressive disorder in a matter of days, rather than weeks.

Intravenous (IV) Ketamine infusions are very successful in treating patients suffering from:

  • Chronic pain syndromes
  • Depression
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Generalized anxiety
  • Postpartum depression
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Ketamine Infusion Experience

At the beginning of the infusion, you may not feel the Ketamine immediately but after a few minutes, you may experience a benign tingling sensation in your lips and/or extremities. Soon after, some patients describe a sense of “feeling heavier”. Sometimes, patients feel they are lighter, and “hovering” over their bodies You may even feel as though your mind is detached from your body. Though this sounds quite strange, most patients find this calming and even soothing and very rarely do patients feel uncomfortable. Some patients express concerns about a “bad trip” or “hallucinations,” but really those words are not appropriate given Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic rather than a hallucinogen like LSD or psilocybin mushrooms.

In as much, Ketamine has not been shown to directly affect the same receptors that are affected by popular hallucinogens. Rather, patients may have mild illusionary experiences, meaning that light or other senses are perceived in a less than normal or enhanced way.

Therefore often in preparation for infusion, light will be minimized by dimming, providing the patient with an eye mask, or other various ways. On the other hand, do not be surprised if you do not feel these effects as is the case with many patients. The evidence is still lacking as to whether these illusionary experiences are correlated with better response, so it is important to let expectations go if you are getting an antidepressant response.
