Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Pressure While on Oxygen Therapy is also called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Pressurizing an oxygen chamber generates 1.3 atmospheres (ATM), which is the equivalent of the external pressure your body would experience by being 11.5 feet under water. Due to this pressure, you breathe in 95% pure oxygen, which permeates and penetrates deep into all of the body’s muscles, tissues, organs, bones, joints, nervous system and brain. These portions of the body can often be oxygen starved, so with this pure oxygen penetrating into your body, the body can now experience the healing effects of increased oxygen levels at the cellular level. Since the oxygen is pumped into the bloodstream under pressure, it remains in the blood longer (eg. like carbonated bubbles remaining in your soda even after the lid has been opened). The benefits of these Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments can last for weeks and months and has been implicated (not FDA approved) in having an effect on the following conditions:

  • Enhancing mood & energy
  • Energizes mind (depression)
  • Relaxes the body (sleep patterns)
  • Anti-aging (skin)
  • Detoxification of the body ( alcohol, drugs, smoking, x-rays)
  • Enhances the elimination of waste products and toxins (lungs)
  • Enhances fertility
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Immune modulation (enhances bodies self defense mechanisms by stimulating the lymphatic system)
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Lyme Disease
  • Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Arthritis and joint, cartilage, and/or disc problems
  • Fibromyalgia and/or chronic pain
