Does your mental health need a reset? Soft Reboot Wellness is a Silicon Valley sanctuary providing evidence-based ketamine therapy in a safe, curated environment overseen by a Harvard-trained anesthesiologist.
“It’s a deep dive into yourself to figure out at the core who you are, what’s important to you and how to live authentically,” said Soft Reboot Wellness founder Dr. Sara Herman. A board-certified anesthesiologist who studied medicine at Harvard Medical School and Columbia University, Dr. Sara worked as an anesthesiologist in the OR for 15 years. She founded Soft Reboot Wellness in 2020 after the stress of working long hours through the covid pandemic inspired her to focus on mental health and share the benefits of ketamine therapy. She has additional training in psychedelic-assisted therapy and integrative healing from the California Institute of Integral Studies, The Ketamine Training Center, The Integrative Psychiatry Institute and MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Sciences).
“It’s a super safe medicine that allows people to disengage from their regular track of thinking to get a new perspective,” she said.
Many people may have heard of ketamine as an illicit party drug, however it has a long and safe history as a commonly used anesthetic medicine. An ever-growing body of scientific research has shown that low-dose intravenous ketamine infusions can also allow the brain to effectively “reboot” to treat various mental health conditions.
At Soft Reboot, every prospective client goes through a careful in-depth screening process to make sure he or she is a good candidate for the treatment. Each treatment session is a carefully guided journey that is medically supervised at all times. In a zero-gravity chair with an eye mask and curated music and aromatherapy, the goal is a transformative experience. Because the treatment is part of a journey of healing and self-discovery, clients are asked to commit to at least two sessions. The ideal number of sessions is individual to each person as each person’s experience is unique, Dr. Sara said.
