What is oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive procedure that delivers additional oxygen to your body.
There is a high concentrate of oxygen in the hyperbaric chamber, which allows you to breathe oxygen at 97% concentration. This means your body will absorbs up to 40% more oxygen for 8 hours after the treatment.
By enabling your blood to carry more oxygen through your body, the natural healing process speeds up, reducing inflammation and increasing productions of white blood cells.
Benefits of oxygen therapy
As oxygen therapy enables your body to heal itself more effectively, it is used to treat a range of health conditions, including:
- Cluster headaches & migraines
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Oxygen therapy can also be beneficial for athletes as it has been found to enhance performance, as well as aid with fracture recovery and sports injuries.
What happens at my appointment?
When you arrive, you will be taken in the the Oxygen Therapy room and shown how to use the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber.
Our Henshaw Chamber is the most spacious sated model available and features transparent viewing windows to make your dive more comfortable.
During the dive, you will breathe oxygen under pressure, allowing it to diffuse into the blood plasma and tissue.
