HBOT is a well-established and extensively researched therapy, which is used to treat a whole host of conditions from skin tears and thermal burns to cellulitis and lymphedema.
In a hyperbaric oxygen chamber the air pressure is increased so that the lungs can gather much more oxygen. The air we breathe consists of approximately 21% oxygen, whereas hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers close to 100% oxygen. Therefore, HBOT supplements the body with oxygen, which up-regulates tissue repair, genes, stem cells, immune cells, energy, metabolism, detoxification, as well as helping the body to recover and regenerate. Hyperbaric chambers are known to relieve hypoxia (when oxygen is not available in sufficient amounts) and offer a whole host of health, wellbeing and anti-ageing benefits.
Intermittent hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to help reduce the cellular and biological ageing of the body and effectively help us to live longer and more importantly, healthier.
