Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, also referred to as HBOT, is a medical treatment used to help boost the body’s natural healing processes. When a person is in the hyperbaric chamber (a pressurized environment) you will absorb more oxygen molecules per volume of compressed air. When increasing the air pressure, oxygen is driven into the body's fluids, allowing for a super saturation of tissues and organs. All the damaged tissues are reached which results in a reduction of swelling and inflammation.
Infusing the body with 95% medical grade oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure promotes healing and delivers benefits that breathing supplemental oxygen alone cannot achieve.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy also helps your body eliminate waste and toxins, promotes new blood vessel growth, increases your body's ability to fight infection and illness, and delivers oxygen to deprived areas of your body and brain.
