Hyperbaric Oxygen Boost

During your session, you will be placed in a chamber with 2-3 times the normal air pressure, allowing your lungs to breathe pure oxygen. HBOT not only helps to fight bacteria and free radicals but also triggers the release of growth factors and stem cells, which optimize your wellbeing.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?

Normal air contains 21% oxygen. By delivering oxygen in a pressurized chamber (hyperbaric means high-pressure), practitioners can supply nearly 18 times the amount of O2 that a patient would normally encounter in their everyday lives. The enhanced intake of oxygen promotes healing throughout all tissues and cells, maximizing wellbeing and longevity. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is known for relieving symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. It can help combat inflammation, promoting the growth of new nerves and blood vessels.

What are the Benefits of HBOT?

Forms New Blood Vessels

HBOT heals compromised tissues, supplying much-needed oxygen to the cells.

Boosts Stem Cell Activity

HBOT optimizes stem cells from bone marrow, triggering tissue repair and regeneration.

Eradicates Inflammation

HBOT calms inflammation by boosting anti-inflammatory gene expression and limiting pro-inflammatory gene expression.

Additional Benefits

  • Accelerates wound healing
  • Fights off infection
  • Enhances circulation
  • Non-surgical and drug-free

What is the Science Behind HBOT?

  • Hyperbaric chambers simulate diving nearly 40 feet underwater and provide up to 18 times the normal oxygen supply to the nerves, tissues, and cells. Supersaturation of O2 is the key to HBOT’s efficacy.
  • Within the compression chamber, oxygen molecules become soluble, which allows them to move through cell membranes, gaining entry to the plasma, lymphatic system, and even the spinal fluids, a job normally reserved for red blood cells. HBOT also delivers oxygen to joints, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, areas that rarely receive such a maximized flow of O2.
  • Bacteria, fungi, and viruses all recoil within the hyperbaric oxygen-rich chamber, as this environment is not viable for their survival. HBOT gives white blood cells the advantage they need to fight off bacterial, fungal, and viral infections.
  • HBOT prompts angiogenesis, or the ability to grow new blood cells. This mechanism is helpful in terms of recovery after surgery, as it helps to reach areas that normally experience restricted blood flow.
  • HBOT stimulates the production of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), an enzyme that combats free radicals, reversing cellular damage while eradicating inflammation.
  • HBOT supports the rapid regeneration of bone by boosting the production of osteoblasts and osteoclasts, specialized cells responsible for bone optimization.
  • HBOT supports the renewal of collagen, a core protein responsible for the skin’s structural framework and a critical component of wound healing. 
  • HBOT decimates inflammation, which is a byproduct of the body’s immune response to injury and disease. By boosting the body’s anti-inflammatory defense mechanisms, HBOT effectively restores balance and harmony within the system.
  • After an injury, the body’s stem cells are sent to the site of the pain. HBOT accelerates and enhances this natural process, jumpstarting the healing journey. Repairs made through HBOT result in tissue that functions nearly at the same level as normal tissue.
