Ketamine therapy, also known as ketamine treatments, is a proven and powerful modality that has become increasingly popular in recent years for addressing a wide range of mental, physical, and spiritual ailments including mood disorders.
Ketamine is an FDA approved medication that is primarily used as a general anesthetic in humans and animals. It is a dissociative anesthetic and, when used in sub-anesthetic doses in clinical settings (as is the case with ketamine therapy), can produce mystical, psychedelic experiences in patients. Many patients find these experiences to be extraordinary and pleasant in such a way that leads to deep and profound emotional healing.
Ketamine has shown promising results in treating symptoms for a variety mood disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), particularly in individuals who have not responded well to other forms of treatment. It has been found to work quickly, often providing relief within hours to days, and its effects can last for weeks or even months.
Ketamine has also been used successfully as an alternative treatment for chronic pain conditions, including neuropathic pain and migraines. It can be effective in reducing pain levels and improving overall quality of life for patients who have been unable to find relief with other medications.
Daytryp Health is a ketamine wellness center in Phoenix that has shown impressive results in patients, especially for those who are treatment resistant or have not found relief through traditional treatment options.
Major depressive disorder is the most common type of depression and affects millions of Americans. Conventional antidepressant treatments fail in a significant percentage of patients. However, studies have shown that ketamine therapy has a 75% success rate in treating depression, and especially those suffering from treatment resistant depression, making Phoenix ketamine a promising option for individuals who haven’t experienced relief through other treatment methods. Treatment resistant depression affects close to 30% of depression sufferers but ketamine has proven to provide rapid relief.
Anxiety disorders affect a significant portion of the population, with traditional anti-anxiety medications posing a major risk of addiction. Ketamine treatment for anxiety, however, has been shown to improve scores by 50% in patients.
Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder (SAD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and phobias. Ketamine therapy has proven highly effective in providing immediate relief from symptoms of anxiety and many patients report experiencing a better quality of life. Maintenance infusions or injections may be required, depending on how well you integrate your journeys.
Chronic pain is a prevalent and debilitating condition that affects millions of Americans. Ketamine therapy for chronic pain has been proven to provide relief in those suffering from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) for up to 12 weeks. There are dozens of chronic pain syndromes currently affecting millions of people, seemingly with no cure. Often, the only relief from chronic pain disorders comes in the form of pain killers that run the risk of addiction. Ketamine infusion therapy offers a much safer alternative for treatment. In face, ketamine infusion therapy is the preferred method (compared to intramuscular) for treating chronic pain.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can arise after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event or enduring or being exposed to traumatic situations over time. Conventional treatments have proven not to be effective for all individuals. However, a study showed that ketamine treatment for PTSD resulted in up to 67% of PTSD sufferers experiencing a 30% or more reduction of symptoms from baseline at week 2 after completion of sessions.
Addiction is a widespread problem affecting 10s of millions of individuals. Traditional rehabilitation methods have a low success rate, with relapses being more common than not. However, ketamine therapy has shown promise in extending recovery for both drug and alcohol addiction.
Alcohol Use Disorder is a prevalent condition that affects millions of Americans. Like addiction, the traditional approach for treating alcohol use disorder is inpatient rehabilitation, with only 33% of people remaining sober after 1 year. Ketamine therapy has been shown to have an 86% success rate over six months in treating alcoholism.
Eating disorders can be life-threatening and are often accompanied by other mental health conditions. Ketamine therapy has shown promise in treating anorexia, with 60% of patients achieving total remission from anorexic thoughts and behaviors. Considering the difficulty in treating eating disorders due to comorbidities including anxiety, addiction, and other mental health conditions such as suicidal ideation, using ketamine to treat eating disorders is very much like using a miracle drug.
Suicidal ideation is a serious mental health condition affecting millions of Americans each year. More than 9.4 million American adults have serious thoughts about committing suicide annually, with hundreds of thousands seeking treatment for suicidal ideation. Traditional treatment methods for suicidal ideation may not be effective for all individuals, leaving many without relief.
However, recent research has shown that ketamine infusions for suicidal ideation may offer a more than promising solution for those struggling. In fact, a study has shown that ketamine infusion therapy provided elimination of suicidal ideation symptoms in 58.6% of patients.
Migraines can be a debilitating condition for many, with traditional treatments often not providing sustained relief. However, a study showed that 77% of migraine sufferers treated with ketamine infusion therapy experienced immediate improvement with pain intensity, with 40% reporting sustained results.
Trauma can have a lasting impact on individuals, with traditional treatments often being ineffective for all individuals. Ketamine therapy has shown to be a highly effective treatment for resolving unhealed trauma, including childhood trauma.
Submit an inquiry and our team will help you find the best treatment options for you.
As a ketamine wellness center, we begin our therapy process with a screening of vital signs, including heart rate, oxygen, and pulse. Following this, a preliminary consultation with our Medical Director takes place to prepare you for your ketamine therapy journey.
Ketamine can be administered via injection or ketamine infusion via an IV, with our doctor determining which option is best suited for your condition. The therapy sessions typically last around 3 hours, depending on the type of protocol being used.
Following your IM or ketamine infusion session, our Tryp Guides are available to help you process your experience. After your session, you can relax in our integration room, enjoying hot tea and fresh fruits. Our team is dedicated to creating the perfect “set and setting” for your journey, encouraging a positive experience and optimal results.
At Daytryp Health, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest level of care, the best possible treatment option, and support throughout their ketamine therapy journey. If you’re seeking relief from a condition that has not responded to traditional treatments, ketamine therapy may be the solution you’ve been hoping for.
Our Medical Director will work with you to determine the right dosage and treatment plan for your unique needs, with most patients experiencing profound changes after 3-6 sessions.
If you’re in the Phoenix area and are interested in learning more about ketamine therapy or scheduling a consultation, contact Daytryp Health today. We look forward to helping you achieve total wellness and transformation!
Feel free to bring your own blanket, pillow, or eye mask if you prefer, but our treatment rooms are equipped to offer maximum comfort. We provide noise-canceling headphones, but you can bring your favorite pair if you’d like.
Please refrain from eating or drinking anything for 4 hours before your first infusion to help us monitor your response. Additionally, avoid drinking fluids shortly before arriving, as needing the restroom during the infusion is inconvenient. Stay away from caffeine, other stimulants, and alcohol the night prior.
During your initial consultation, we’ll review your current medications and provide guidance. If you’re taking medications that could reduce ketamine’s effectiveness (e.g., benzodiazepines, lamotrigine), we might suggest adjustments to your dosing schedule.
Opt for comfort with loose-fitting clothes and layers. Avoid heels and wear short sleeves, as we’ll need access to your arm for the injection or ketamine infusion IV.
You may hear us mention “set and setting” in relation to infusion preparation. We handle the setting by offering a comfortable, low-stimulus, and safe environment, while you’re in charge of your mindset. Clear your mind and ready yourself for the experience through activities like yoga, breath work, music, meditation, or nature walks. Proper preparation can lead to a more profound and peaceful infusion.
Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic, meaning it disconnects you from your surroundings, thoughts, emotions, memories, and sense of self. Time and space perception may be distorted. Every person’s experience is unique and can differ between sessions. Relax and allow music to guide you through the experience. Embrace any visuals, thoughts, or ideas that arise or enjoy moments of emptiness. While most people find low-dose ketamine infusions peaceful, some may experience anxiety or fear due to disconnection. Surrendering and trusting in your safety is key.
Ketamine can cause nystagmus, making it difficult to focus on anything and potentially causing dizziness or nausea. We provide an eye mask and specially curated playlists for ketamine journeys. Concentrate on your internal experience and exploration. Music can be a helpful guide during the infusion. Refrain from using your phone for music, as notifications may interrupt your session. We’ll ask you to turn off your phone and store it away until your treatment is complete.
Ketamine therapy sessions last around 60 minutes, but allocate at least 3 hours for preparation, treatment, and recovery. Pain infusions may take longer, so plan to be at the clinic for most of the day.
Your health and safety are our top priorities. If we believe it’s unsafe for you to undergo ketamine treatment, we won’t proceed. We’ll aim to resolve any issues and reschedule for a later date.
No, driving is strictly prohibited for at least 12 hours post-infusion. Instead, arrange for a trusted friend or family member to pick you up. Public transportation isn’t recommended due to sensory overload, and taxis or ride shares are less than ideal. Discuss transportation concerns with us or consider scheduling our Cosmic Travel Agency Van for pick-up and drop-off.
We suggest going home and relaxing for the rest of the day, especially after your first treatment. Recovery times vary among individuals. Until you’re familiar with your body’s reaction, plan to take it easy. Once the effects wear off, observe any changes in your mood and reflect on your experience. Consider journaling or taking notes. Refrain from operating heavy machinery, making significant life decisions, or caring for young children after your treatment.

Steve’s involvement, acceptance, and advocacy of the use of entheogenic substances as sacraments for direct spiritual experiences is what has inspired him to work hard to create peace and harmony in both his own life and the lives of those around him.
Steve has made a commitment to rejuvenating his own spiritual life using humanist resources and a humanist perspective. With an emphasis on the mysticism of the unitive experience and the practical use of entheogenic rituals for learning about and developing human consciousness to create a direct connection to the Divine within, Steve has been studying and using a variety of transformational tools. Each has acted as a catalyst in his own consciousness, resulting in profoundly life-altering experiences that have gradually revealed Steve’s true self and pointed him in the direction of his true purpose in life.
Steve’s desire to be of service to others by coaching, mentoring, and guiding them through a shamanic methodology and the practical use of entheogenic rituals is the driving force behind his life’s work, passions, and interests.
Steve loves sharing the knowledge he has gained using many entheogenic sacraments and transformational tools that can help spark a shift in consciousness and result in a profound realization of one’s true nature. Steve also firmly endorses both the idea of cognitive liberty (the right to direct one’s own consciousness) and the safe and appropriate use of entheogenic sacraments for a direct spiritual experience.
Steve has put a lot of effort into learning about and developing the best techniques as a practitioner and guide to provide the right guidance, proper preparation, safe navigation, and holistic integration into the sacred work he performs, and he remains dedicated to his work through practice, mentorship, and study.
There is a prayer in Sanskrit, one of the oldest recorded languages dating back 7000–8000 years, that says, “Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu.” This means: “May all beings everywhere be happy and free. May the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and that freedom for all.” This is a truth Steve lives by every day.
