The Science

The Principles

The term “hyperbaric” is defined as a gas at a pressure greater than normal. Compared to breathing normal pressure air at sea level, hyperbaric oxygen rich air will drive up to 1,200% more oxygen into the bloodstream.

Super-saturating the body with oxygen drives the regeneration of damaged tissue, strengthens the immune system, and provides the body with greater opportunity for healing by:

  • Immediately reversing hypoxia
  • Acting as a signal inducer of DNA, turning on and off over 5,000 genes
  • Stimulating the development of new blood vessels where circulation has been compromised (Angiogenesis)
  • Promoting collagen, bone, and cartilage repair and regeneration
  • Greatly reducing swelling and inflammation
  • Mobilizing and stimulating an increase of stem cells within damaged tissues and in bone marrow
  • Enhancing energy production at the cellular level

The Benefits

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a noninvasive treatment that can help in a variety of medical conditions either as a primary or complementary therapy.

HBOT has very few risks or side effects and may be helpful if you suffer from an inflammatory condition or a condition that may be improved when blood flow and delivery of oxygen to vital organs and tissues is optimized. Some of the benefits that can result from HBOT are:

  • Healing wounds, no matter where they are
  • Decreasing wound healing time through increased efficiency
  • Reducing the risk of amputation
  • Enhancing the brain’s ability to regain neurologic function (Neuroplasticity)
  • Decreasing disability
  • Reducing Pain
  • Improving quality of life
