Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy FAQ

Research has demonstrated that Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides significant relief for individuals experiencing inflammation, traumatic brain injuries, PTSD, sports injuries, diabetes, cancer, cerebral palsy, lyme disease, neurological conditions like autism, stroke, and Alzheimer’s, and many more. Furthermore, clinical studies are showing it provides significant benefits for those seeking to benefit from anti-aging and beauty enhancements, as well as promoting faster recovery. Everyone has something to gain from the plethora of benefits resulting from HBOT.
Yes new clinical studies are actually showing a reversal in cellular age! A new study indicates that hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) in healthy aging adults can stop the aging of blood cells and reverse the aging process. In the biological sense, the participants’ blood cells actually grow younger as the treatments progress. Forcing scientists and clinical researchers to rethink everything we knew about how old humans can live to be. Read the Clinical results for yourself at the link provided in our research tab. The wealthy are using this therapy to live longer & significantly healthier lives, our goal is to make these treatments affordable & available to everyone.

There have been no reported hazardous side effects associated with Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Our chambers use oxygen concentrations instead of pure oxygen, eliminating any risk of oxygen toxicity. During & after sessions you may experience slight fatigue, which is a positive sign of your body using the surplus oxygen suddenly being absorbed.

We strongly discourage doing HBOT when you have any respiratory congestion or are sick with a cold or flu. This makes it much harder to clear your sinuses during the pressure increase and decrease portions of the session. If you fail to tell our associates that you are congested and do HBOT anyway, it becomes more likely that you may leave with a plugged ear feeling that may last up to 2-48 hours.

Yes thousands of clinical studies have proven HBOT to be very safe. Our chambers use oxygen concentrations instead of pure oxygen, eliminating the risks associated with pure 100% oxygen. Additionally, the pressure inside our Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers is typically not high enough to cause a pressure injury. Our HBO chambers are designed to be depressurized and opened from both the inside and outside for added safety.
A Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy session(or dive) usually lasts for 60 minutes, and is usually conducted 4-5 times per week. But it is not uncommon for professional athletes or celebrities to use for much longer periods, when looking for more significant results.

The treatments for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy will vary greatly depending on your specific goals and health situation. Typically a treatment protocol is prescribed in groups of 20 to 40 sessions, often times one or more subsequent series of treatments are then recommended. The response to HBOT can differ for each individual in terms of how much and how quickly they experience results.

It’s important to note the benefits from HBOT are cumulative. For example, angiogenesis (formation of new capillary beds), starts to be observed after around 20 sessions. Whereas post concussion treatment started right after the injury will usually see very noticeable improvement in the first 2-3 sessions.

For individuals seeking to improve overall health and wellness, an initial series of 20 to 40 sessions is often suggested. For post-surgery recovery, it is recommended to undergo HBOT as soon as possible. Athletes may begin to notice positive effects after several sessions.

Any loose fitting or comfortable clothing will work. We recommend short sleeve shirts and shorts when possible, so you don’t get to warm. A blanket can be brought in as well for those who want to sleep. We use concentrated oxygen delivered through a face mask, so the chamber itself is not pressurized using pure oxygen. This eliminates all clothing & makeup related safety concerns. But we recommend jewelry and makeup not be worn in the chamber for cleanliness reasons.
Our Chambers provide a comfortable and peaceful environment. While undergoing treatment, you will experience a pressure change in your ears at the beginning and end of the session, similar to the sensation you feel when flying or diving. However, this sensation can be alleviated by swallowing or yawning or other methods. After a few sessions, you will become accustomed to the pressure changes and feel comfortable during treatment. Inside the pressurized chamber, you can engage in activities such as reading, listening to music, watching movies, using your phone, or simply relaxing and sleeping.
Yes absolutely, many children have undergone HBOT. In fact, parents using mild HBOT for their autistic children has been one of the groundbreaking treatments bringing HBOT into the mainstream. We do also have chambers that can facilitate a parent with their child. Research has demonstrated that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can yield remarkable benefits for children who suffer from brain injuries, cerebral palsy, concussion, lyme disease, and autism.

ATA is a measure of the atmospheric pressure exerted on us from the weight of the atmosphere (air) around and above us. When at sea level, we are experiencing a pressure measured at 1 ATA. We offer both Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy which is considered low pressure (1.3 – 1.4 ATA), as well as higher pressure HBOT (1.6 – 2.0 ATA). Different pressures are recommended for different results based on what your health goals are. Please schedule an HBOT Consultation for more information on what better suits your needs.

It’s important to note that most clinical studies that have been published and that we promote are done at the higher pressure of 2.0 ATA. We do not offer treatment at any pressure higher than 2.0 ATA. We have found that even many medical doctors are not highly proficient in the best use for the different pressures HBOT is available in. The off label uses of HBOT do not have set protocols in place for the most part. We make recommendations based on our client’s goals, our experience, and loosely established protocols established by the leaders in our field. So for example, you may have gotten a prescription for an even higher pressure of 2.5 ATA, we would not be able to provide that exact dosage, but we have found that the vast majority of indications can be treated successfully at 2.0 ATA or lower.
