Infuse yourself with the healing power of pure oxygen

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, allowing oxygen to dissolve into the bloodstream and reach tissues at higher concentrations. This increased oxygen delivery promotes healing by stimulating the release of growth factors and stem cells, reducing inflammation, and enhancing the body's natural ability to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. Our HBOT sessions offer a safe and effective way to support overall wellness and accelerate recovery.

How does hyperbaric oxygen therapy work?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) boosts immunity through several mechanisms rooted in its ability to increase oxygen levels within the body. The elevated oxygen levels enhance the function of white blood cells, which play crucial roles in the immune response by detecting and eliminating pathogens. HBOT also promotes the release of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and cytokines, which help coordinate immune responses and regulate inflammation. This dual action contributes to an overall strengthening of the immune system.

Moreover, HBOT creates an environment that is hostile to certain pathogens, particularly anaerobic bacteria and fungi, which thrive in low-oxygen conditions. By saturating tissues with oxygen, HBOT inhibits the growth and proliferation of these pathogens, helping to combat infections and promote healing. Overall, HBOT offers a multifaceted approach to boosting immunity, making it a valuable therapy for individuals seeking to enhance their body's defenses against illness and infection.

Fighting off free radicals and lowering inflammation

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) aids in fighting off free radicals and lowering inflammation by increasing oxygen levels in the tissues. Elevated oxygen levels support the antioxidant defenses, helping to neutralize free radicals (unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to inflammation). Additionally, HBOT promotes the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines, which help regulate the immune response. By combating oxidative stress and modulating inflammatory processes, HBOT offers a comprehensive approach to promoting overall health and well-being.

Benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy:

  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Enhanced immune function
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Improved oxygen delivery to tissues
  • Promotion of tissue regeneration
  • Relief from chronic pain
  • Non-invasive and well-tolerated
  • Minimal side effects
  • No downtime

What happens during hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

During a hyperbaric oxygen therapy session, you'll relax comfortably inside a pressurized chamber while breathing pure oxygen. The chamber gradually increases in pressure, allowing oxygen to dissolve into your bloodstream at higher concentrations. Throughout the session, you may experience a slight sensation of fullness in your ears, similar to what you might feel during takeoff or landing in an airplane. Most people find the experience relaxing and painless, often using the time to read, listen to music, or simply rest.


Side effects and recovery after hyperbaric oxygen therapy

The side effects of HBOT are typically mild and temporary, including ear discomfort, sinus pressure, and temporary changes in vision. These effects usually resolve shortly after the session ends. There is typically no downtime associated with HBOT, and you can resume your normal activities immediately afterward. Some individuals may experience increased energy levels or feelings of relaxation following treatment. Overall, HBOT is safe and well-tolerated, with minimal side effects and no significant recovery period.
