Ketamine has shown promise in the treatment of mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, addictive behavior, PTSD and chronic pain. Following best practices in medicine, before you participate in our Transformation retreat we require that you provide a relevant diagnosis from an independent health care provider – your own primary care physician, counselor, or other licensed practioner.

Alternately, we can refer you to a provider in Santa Fe. If you’d like a referral, let us know. This evaluation may be covered by your health insurance. 

Tailoring your experience  As you get closer to arrival, you’ll receive a call from your dedicated Transformation tour guide to determine how we can tailor your experience. We’ll go over dietary preferences, what’s provided and what you’ll need to bring. We will also schedule any massage sessions, tub suite appointments and dining reservations – then prepare a comprehensive itinerary for you.

Your Transformation tour guide is your primary contact throughout the experience and is available for support before, during and after the retreat.

Getting ready for Transformation  Ten Thousand Waves Transformation is unlike any other therapy we offer, and therefore requires some preparation in advance of your stay.

  • To increase the power of the experience, we recommend limiting other psychoactive substances (alcohol, cannabis, etc.) prior to and during the retreat 
  • Bringing pets or children is not recommended
  • Wifi is available in your room; however, you may find that “unplugging” from your normal connectivity will improve your experience.

Transformation in the time of COVID  All Ten Thousand Waves staff are tested for COVID on a regular basis. We require that you, too, take a COVID test in preparation for your visit. The State of New Mexico offers testing; home COVID tests may be available

We ask that our guests wear face masks in public areas, when walking on the grounds, during massage treatments and your journey, and when interacting with staff or other guests. Our staff will always wear masks to protect you.
