We prioritize building real relationships. You will work with the same clinician throughout your collaboration with Isha Health, ensuring consistency and trust. For every newly referred client, we offer video chat meetings, providing a personal touch right from the start.

Tailored Client Care

Our approach is flexible and adaptive. We do not impose rigid protocols, allowing you to provide truly personalized care tailored to the unique needs of each client.

Flexibility in Treatment Options

We understand the importance of flexibility in treatment. Whether it’s the form of administration (troche or RDT), frequency, dose, or location, we adapt to meet your and your clients’ needs.

Convenient Scheduling

We make it easy for you to schedule appointments for your clients. Initial appointments can typically be arranged within three days, ensuring timely access to the care they need.

Client Retention

Our role is to support you in providing exceptional care without interfering with your client relationships. We specialize in providing a medical framework for ketamine assisted psychotherapy, ensuring that your clients receive the necessary medical support while maintaining their primary therapeutic relationship with you.

Why Partner With Us?

In the realm of mental health care, many patients might find only partial relief even after months of conventional medications or talk therapy. This is where the potential of ketamine therapy shines.

Research shows that ketamine can bolster traditional treatments, leading to enhanced patient well-being.

At Isha Health, we provide secure and user-friendly at-home ketamine treatments, complementing existing medication management or psychotherapy. We primarily focus on conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
