The altered states of consciousness which occur during ketamine administration are considered desirable and will be molded and processed with you in Augmented Psychotherapy. In other applications of ketamine, these perceptual changes are viewed purely as side effects. We understand altered states of consciousness as important instruments of therapy. During these altered states, distinct changes in perception, feelings, and thoughts can occur. Under some circumstances, these changes in consciousness can be very intense. This is why we embed them in a psychotherapy specifically developed for working with them.
Further physical side effects include moderate increases in blood pressure, as well as increases in heart rate. Nausea, vomiting, and blurry vision may also occur. Allergic reactions are very rare. In pre-treatment medical discussions, all patients will be thoroughly informed about possible risks and side effects.
