Are there any side effects to ketamine?

In some patients, ketamine may have the following side effects:

  • Temporary increase in blood pressure
  • Temporary nausea or vomiting (we administer a medication to prevent this from happening)
  • A sense of impaired balance and coordination during the experience and for a short time afterward
  • A feeling of dizziness, drowsiness, slurred speech, and/or numbing sensation of the skin which will quickly pass as your experience is concluded

These side effects are normal, rarely require any medical intervention, and resolve soon after the infusion ends.

To have your questions about ketamine answered, please contact us to book your consultation.

What is the ideal timing between treatments?

Clinical research has shown that an initial course of six ketamine treatments over three weeks is optimal. After this initial course of treatment, you and your Clinician will develop an individualized treatment plan to best meet your continuing medical needs. This commonly begins with subsequent treatments spaced two weeks apart, as you continue to calibrate your response to treatment and work with your therapist. The duration of effect following each treatment differs in each individual, and those who experience benefits lasting several weeks or even months may choose to extend the timeline between treatments accordingly.

What is the therapeutic experience like?

Ketamine can temporarily alter your perceptions. At the dosages provided by Mindfield Wellness, you may immediately experience mild reductions in pain, anxiety, and depression, in addition to the following:

  • Relaxation of ordinary concerns and usual mindset
  • A dream-like, floating or tingling feeling
  • Altered sense of time and space
  • Mild changes in perceptions of sound and sight
  • Disruption of negative feelings and rumination
  • Diminished or altered body sensations; some people may have an “out-of-body” experience, where the usual awareness of the physical body is reduced

Most clients find the ketamine experience pleasurable. The ketamine-assisted therapy journey may cause new thoughts and feelings to surface, presenting exciting, illuminating and challenging new perspectives. Working closely with your therapist during your ketamine therapy is imperative to reaching your wellness goals and is part of the process of healing.

What makes the Mindfield Wellness at-home experience different?

At Mindfield Wellness we help prepare you for the optimal healing experience. The set and the setting of the experience is vital to assisting you in obtaining the most potential for growth.

Your at-home ketamine experience starts when a Mindfield nurse arrives at your location, most likely your home, where you will be most comfortable. You will need to provide a picture ID. Your ketamine experience will take place in what you consider to be a safe, quiet and private location in your home where you will not be interrupted. If there are children in the home, they should be cared for by a responsible adult in a separate location in or outside of your home for at least one hour and a half during your ketamine experience. Pets should be securely located in a separate location to your treatment area prior to the arrival of your nurse.

Our medical staff will prepare your IV and walk you through the stages of the experience.

You’ll be provided with an eye mask – we strongly recommend that you keep your eyes closed throughout the experience to maximize your relaxation.

Additionally, listening to music during your ketamine experience has been shown to make the experience more enjoyable. We have specially curated playlists for the experience or you may provide your own music. Our nurse can provide you with headphones and access to our playlists if you desire.

During the ketamine experience, our nurse will continuously monitor your heart rate and CO2 levels. Although ketamine therapy is proven to be very safe, our nurse is prepared for any emergency situation that may arise.

When the IV is finished, you’ll slowly start to feel your normal bodily sensations returning: you may feel like moving your feet and hands or
stretching. It’s important not to rush your re-awakening. Continue your relaxation until you regain your equilibrium. You may feel like discussing your experience with your nurse. Once you are up and mobile, you must refrain from driving, working with sharp objects or machinery as you would after having any anesthesia.

Psychedelic safety and the Mindfield Wellness experience

At Mindfield Wellness, your safety is our top priority. To help us meet that commitment, Mindfield Wellness has put in place policies and protocols to protect our clients as they receive our IV ketamine

IV ketamine therapy offers strong potential to help individuals struggling with issues like depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. In research trials ketamine has been found to be safe from a human toxicology perspective and non-addictive.

All safety protocols will be explained to you as part of your initial interview, and all our services are in compliance with local, state and federal health regulations.

To have your questions about ketamine answered, please contact us to book your consultation.

Is ketamine therapy covered by health insurance?

Ketamine-assisted therapy is an innovation in mental health care, but because it is still new, it is presently an uninsured medical service for most patients. Your insurer may be able to partially reimburse you for the medical provider costs of your Mindfield Wellness experience. After your first consultation, you will be provided with a superbill detailing the costs of your treatment that you can send to your insurance provider.

Do you offer payment plans?

We do not offer payment plans. We offer credit through Care Credit.

Edward Bates


Ed Bates has enjoyed a thriving career in the arts & entertainment industry as a producer, writer, director, film distributor and educator.

In 2020, at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Bates started a medical company, The Safe Set. The Safe Set designed and operated contact tracing programs for Netflix and Buzzfeed, and ran production mitigation programs and testing strategies for many other entertainment companies, allowing scores of film industry professionals to safely return to work.

When Covid vaccines became available at the end of 2020, Bates immediately devoted The Safe Set to vaccinations: The Safe Set vaccinated thousands of school children and underserved adults in Los Angeles County. For months, Bates’ company vaccinated the students and their families in L.A. Unified School District, Santa Monica & Malibu School Districts, numerous independent schools and operated his own vaccination clinic in South Los Angeles.

Bates has been interested for many years in the growing proof that psychedelic medicines show significant success in treating mental illness when combined with therapy. During 2020, a friend of Bates’ had become deeply depressed and had not been helped by any other therapies and that he had slipped into a hopeless state of suicidality. Bates was profoundly relieved when one day his friend called with an entirely new outlook and attitude of positivity towards his life: his friend told him that a series of ketamine infusions, along with therapy, had led to this miraculous change. That day, Bates’ journey to understanding the power of psychedelics to help patients with mental illness began, along with his mission to bring this powerful treatment to patients in need.
