Custom Ketamine Therapy for the Conejo Valley
What is Ketamine?
Ketamine has long been studied for its pain relief qualities and has been known to effect the brain’s glutamate receptors, which are critical in forming and reforming connections between brain cells, a process called plasticity. Plasticity has been shown to be critical for memory, thinking, and consciousness.
