What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy happens in a sealed, pressurized chamber with two to three times more air pressure than outside air. The specialized chamber delivers 100% pure oxygen, allowing you to breathe much more oxygen into your cells than the air within the environment, which is generally packed with nitrogen, pesticides, heavy metals, and other pollutants. The high-pressure atmosphere of the hyperbaric oxygen chamber passively drives the oxygen through your tissues into the blood, allowing it to carry a more significant amount of oxygen to your body parts. This helps repair injured tissues, fight infections, increase energy levels, and more.

What Happens During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

When your session begins, the air pressure within the hyperbaric oxygen chamber will increase along with the oxygen content. You may experience temporary pressure in your ears, much like what you may feel at high altitudes or in an airplane. You can relieve the pressure by swallowing or yawning.

As you breathe in the oxygen-filled air, your lungs absorb the added oxygen molecules into your bloodstream, offering many physiological benefits. Most sessions can be completed within one or two hours, depending on the nature of your condition, and you will feel revitalized by the time it’s finished.
