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 our Transformation staff 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.

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. If you really want to do your homework, Consciousness Medicine is a great read.

  • To increase the power of the experience, we recommend limiting other psychoactive substances (alcohol, cannabis, etc.) up to three days 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  Over 80% of Ten Thousand Waves staff are fully vaccinated; the rest are tested for COVID on a regular basis. We require that you be fully vaccinated to participate in Transformation. You must have had your final shot no less than 14 days prior to the date of your journey. Please see the requirements for proof of vaccination.

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