Oxytocin Assisted Therapy

What is Oxytocin Assisted Therapy?

Oxytocin Assisted Therapy is a specialized form of therapy that utilizes the administration of oxytocin to enhance the therapeutic process. Oxytocin is a naturally occurring hormone produced in the brain that plays a key role in social bonding, trust, and emotional regulation. By incorporating oxytocin into therapy sessions, we aim to facilitate deeper emotional processing, strengthen interpersonal connections, and promote overall well-being.

What is an Oxytocin Assisted Therapy Session like?

During an Oxytocin Assisted Psychotherapy session, both the client and the therapist remain actively engaged throughout. The client and therapist will collaboratively explore the core psychological or traumatic imprints and themes relevant to the client's healing. These sessions prioritize uncovering the root causes of destructive patterns and psychological imbalances, offering a more resourced and insightful perspective for healing. Sessions last between 55 to 90 minutes, depending on the client's needs.

What Does Oxytocin Assisted Therapy Treat?

Oxytocin Assisted Therapy shows promise in the treatment of various mental health conditions and can also be beneficial for individuals seeking to enhance their emotional well-being and interpersonal relationships. Research has shown that oxytocin can help treat: depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, attachment disorders & relational trauma, autism spectrum disorders, stress management, eating disorders, and addiction. 

Is Oxytocin Assisted Therapy Right for me?

Oxytocin Assisted Therapy may be beneficial for individuals seeking support through a novel treatment approach for a variety of mental health concerns, as well as those interested in enhancing their emotional connection and interpersonal skills.

How Does it Work?

During an Oxytocin Assisted Therapy session, either in person or virtually, clients self administer a dose of oxytocin via compounded nasal spray. This allows for rapid absorption of the hormone into the bloodstream, facilitating its effects on the brain and body. Under the guidance of your therapists, clients engage in traditional talk therapy techniques while benefiting from the enhanced emotional openness and receptivity facilitated by oxytocin.
