HOW DOES IT WORK?
All cells require oxygen to produce energy to grow, repair, and improve cellular function. Our blood carries oxygen throughout the body to fight off bacteria and stimulate growth factors and stem cells for healing function. When your body is saturated with oxygen, damaged tissues are regenerated, immunity is strengthened, and healing is expedited. The term “Hyperbaric” refers to a gas at an above-normal pressure. Hyperbaric oxygen will give your blood stream up to 1200% more oxygen. The air pressure inside the pressurized chamber is increased up to 3 times above normal air pressure. The high air pressure will cause fullness in your ears like when you are on an airplane. That feeling can be counteracted by swallowing or yawning. Your lungs are expanded to breathe in more oxygen under the high pressure. Each session is between 20 minutes to 1 hour. You will be monitored throughout the duration.
Benefits of HBOT include:
1. Increases the amount of oxygen carried by the blood, providing faster healing.
2. Reduces swelling, decreases inflammation, and stimulates the release of stem cells.
3. Strengthens the immune system, enhancing the plasma antioxidant defences and promotes the ability of the body to fight disease and infection.
