During an HBOT treatment, patients breathe medical grade oxygen at increased pressure, producing an increase in the amount of oxygen carried by the blood and other fluids. The air we normally breathe only contains 19-21% of this essential element.
Under typical circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. However, HBOT forces oxygen into the plasma, the Lymph, and the cerebrospinal fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord while under pressure. These fluids carry the pure oxygen to areas where circulation is poor or blocked, reaching damaged tissues, and promoting a greater opportunity for the body to support its own healing. HBOT allows for more oxygen to be delivered to your organs and tissues in the body, a more efficient healing of a wide range of conditions may be possible – HBOT is most commonly used for:
- Medical Conditions
- Sports Injury Recovery & Performance
- Post-Surgical Recovery
- Anti – Aging, Energy & Longevity
Extra oxygen in your body will accelerate and support your body’s natural healing process while enhancing the white blood cells’ ability to fight infection. It can promote the development of new capillaries, the tiny blood vessels that connect arteries to veins. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy also assists your body in building new connective tissue – contributing to increased organ function.
