Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Why hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Oxygen equals energy

Oxygen is a vital element of life. We know that we need to breathe it in, but we may not realise that our whole body gets 90% of its energy from oxygen, through our blood.

Oxygen equals optimum health

Blood carries oxygen to the cells throughout your body to keep them healthy. High levels of oxygen are anti-oxidant, immune boosting and anti-inflammatory. Infections cannot survive in pure oxygen, which naturally cleans and energises the cells.

 

When we increase the amount of oxygen the cells receive, it helps your whole body to:

 

Feel better - Heal better - Perform better

 

Feel better

Health conscious and highly active people use oxygen therapy regularly for:

HBOT can give the body a detox; boost anti-oxidants; foster new stem cells to counter the effects of ageing. It can also benefit bones and skin and reduce inflammation to prevent and address chronic disease.

 

Heal better

When we are ill, our oxygen-bearing blood flow is reduced, so oxygen (energy) fails to reach all cells. With age, less blood flow reaches muscles, joints, brain, eyes, ears.

Oxygen therapy:

Over time, diverse and difficult conditions can be helped, greatly improving quality of life. These include Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Dementia, Bowel disease, Lyme disease and even Stroke and Multiple Sclerosis. HBOT is complementary to conventional medication and can be used alongside it.

 

Perform better

More and more professional sports people and dedicated gym users are discovering HBOT, using it to boost energy levels and increase their performance. They find that oxygen therapy can:

Those who need and want to be super fit may add regular HBOT sessions to their training and recovery regime. They can benefit from a boost before performing, fast muscle recovery afterwards and overall reduction of inflammation for optimum health.

 

How it works

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers highly concentrated oxygen under pressure, so the plasma (liquid) part of the blood is totally infused with oxygen, which supersaturates the cells of the entire body.

The oxygen, with its healing and energising power, can penetrate deeper and further - especially into areas that are deprived of oxygen due to illness or injury. Oxygen concentration levels in the blood can reach 1000% greater than normal!

For this reason, hyperbaric oxygen chambers are used in hospitals to give fast, emergency treatment to people with life-threatening and debilitating conditions that need immediate remedy.

The effect goes on working for around four hours and then (more info needed). Regular sessions are recommended to maintain the beneficial effect of the oxygen therapy and build up its benefits over time.

 

The experience in the chamber

For a treatment session, you are helped and guided at every step by a trained professional. Inside the comfortable, well-lit chamber, many people relax by reading or watching a film. You breathe through a mask and have contact with the operative, who gradually adjusts pressure, with your feedback, to a therapeutic level. You are then invited to relax and breathe in the oxygen for about an hour.

Using hyperbaric oxygen therapy can infuse the plasma (liquid) part of the blood with highly concentrated oxygen so that not only can it penetrate deeper and further but the oxygen concentration levels.
