How do Psychedelics work?

An Evidence based approach to healing

This scientifically-backed therapeutic approach suggests that psychedelic-assisted therapy can rewire entrenched belief systems and heal deep trauma, fostering a physiological reset for enduring recovery. Ideal for treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction, our program leverages the power of neuroplasticity to 'turn back the clock' of the brain. This reset breaks unhealthy habits, paving the way for the formation of positive ones. We provide comprehensive support to help reshape and establish new, healthy mental patterns, enhancing overall well-being and resilience.

How do Psychedelics & Psychedelic therapy work?


Imagine the brain as a rigid, unyielding block of clay, a metaphor for fixed thought patterns and deep-seated behaviors. Years of conditioning and repetitive habits solidify it, illustrating the difficulty in changing long-established mental processes and actions. This hardened state reflects the brain's resistance to new ways of thinking and adapting, but with the right approach, it can become malleable again, allowing for profound transformation and growth.


From a scientific perspective, the intake of chemical substances or exposure to trauma can significantly disrupt the brain's neural network, leading to impaired functionality. This disruption often results in neurons misfiring and the creation of faulty neural pathways. Such changes in the brain's circuitry can adversely affect its overall performance, impacting cognitive processes, emotional regulation, and behavior.

Research indicates that traditional therapy and medication resemble a sculptor painstakingly molding clay, symbolizing a gradual and prolonged process of mental reshaping. Often extending over years, this method has demonstrated only moderate effectiveness in offering relief and support, according to recent scientific studies. These findings highlight the need for more dynamic and immediate approaches to facilitate mental health recovery and well-being.


Psychedelic therapy operates akin to warming clay, effectively 'resetting the clock' of your brain. This action rapidly renders the brain more malleable and adaptable. Research suggests that psychedelics amplifies this effect by influencing brain neuroplasticity, facilitating rapid and significant alterations in neural pathways and thought patterns. This accelerated change aids in overcoming entrenched mental habits and fosters the development of new, healthier cognitive processes


As the clay transitions into a state of softness and flexibility, it symbolizes the formation of new neural pathways and the modification of long-standing habits, illustrating the concept of neuroplasticity at work. This represents the brain's remarkable ability to reorganize and adapt. During Ibogaine therapy at our facility, our skilled therapists play a crucial role in guiding and facilitating the reshaping of this newly malleable mind. Their expertise ensures that these mental transformations are not only rapid but also deeply effective, leading to significant and lasting changes.


Psilocybin-assisted therapy facilitates a smoother transition from entrenched habits and thought patterns to healthier behaviors and perspectives. This therapy essentially resets your brain, creating a profound sense of awakening and rejuvenation. It's akin to turning back the hands of time, providing a unique opportunity to break free from old habits and establish new, sustainable ones. This process empowers individuals to actively reshape their thought patterns and embark on a path of lasting, positive transformation
