Ketamine therapy is very dependent on the mindset and setting of the treatment. It is important that the setting is neither too casual (IV spas) nor overly medical.
On the casual side, it is important to note that according to regulations, a crash cart must be available on-site wherever ketamine is administered. Spa settings or IV therapy centers do not carry crash carts and are not medically equipped to provide ketamine therapy. On the other end of things, a busy and noisy hospital environment with several patients getting treatment in a large room separated by curtains is not private and too overstimulating for a relaxing experience.
