Why hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Everybody needs more oxygen
Every cell in the body needs oxygen to complete the metabolic processes that give us life and energy. O2 gives the athlete stamina, helps the injured heal, protects from environmental toxins.
If body’s intake of O2is insufficient, body – out of balance. In today’s world, the most important factor that diminishes oxygen intake is pollution.
In reduced condition, body’s ability to repair & protect cells is severely impaired & encourages bacteria, fungus, viruses, microbes & pathogens to flourish. And when deprived of more than 60% oxygen, an ideal environment is created for damaged cells to mutate & cause more diabolical damage to our systems. All of these harmful agents & toxins, simply cannot exist in an O2 rich environment.
That’s why we all need to give our bodies more oxygen.
What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy (mHBOT) raises the levels of oxygen in the body’s blood plasma. Increased O2 in the plasma leads to higher amounts of o2 delivered to the body’s tissues, organs and brain. The brain uses more than 20% percent of the body’s oxygen. Only 10% of our energy comes from the food we eat, while the remaining 90% comes from oxygen. Under pressure, additional oxygen is dissolved into the blood plasma and enters the tissues directly.
(mHBOT) promotes relaxation, stimulates the body’s healing processes, increases stamina, endurance helps the body to return to a State of balance and wellbeing.
So how does this work?
Blood is made up of three main components; White Blood Cells that fight infection, red blood cells that carry oxygen and plasma. Under normal circumstances, the Red cells carry the majority of oxygen, the plasma carries about 3% of oxygen.(mHBOT) forces O2 into the body fluids under pressure, more O2 is dissolved into the plasma greatly increasing the oxygen levels.
How much more oxygen will be available as a result of hyperbaric therapy?
We actually only use between 4 and 6% of the oxygen we breathe. During treatment around 24 – 30% O2 is available to us. In effect, under pressure the body can absorb almost 10 more O2 than normal.

Post Surgery Recovery
Why will I need Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
What are the benefits?
mHBOT decrease post-operative inflammation (decreasing swelling and bruising,decrease the amount of scar tissue),infection & heal wounds and accelerates QUICK recovery.
How many treatments will I need?
Treatment protocol is dependent on individual cases and histories.
Recover faster . . .
Sports Injury, Recovery and Endurance
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy boosts immune response and enhances performance levels.
Higher concentrations of oxygen in the blood at the cellular level allows quick healing muscle tear (strain), ligament tear (sprain) at a much faster rate.
The elevated oxygen levels alows athletes to increase Performance and Recover more rapidly.
More oxygen fuels your body to keep you on track . . .
Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions . . .
