“Basic human contact - the meeting of eyes, the exchanging of words - is to the psyche what oxygen is to the brain.” Martha Beck
Oxygen is life. A human being can go without water for a few days, and without food for weeks but when we are deprived of oxygen our cells begin to die within minutes. Oxygen is our body’s most vital and essential nutrient!
As early as the 1700’s, physicians experimented with sealed oxygen chambers to treat inflammatory conditions, scurvy and arthritis. Over time, Oxygen Hyperbaric Therapy chambers were developed to treat many life-threatening ailments. Currently in the U.S., Decompression Sickness, Burns, Infected Wounds, Post Radiation Damage, and Osteomyelitis are just some of the few acute conditions for which HBOT is the indicated treatment.
During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, 100% oxygen is breathed through a mask at higher pressure within a chamber. This raises oxygen levels in the plasma being delivered to the brain and all the body’s tissues, even to areas with compromised blood supply. This is especially important in the treatment of brain injuries, where a lack of oxygen in the cells creates impairment of their functioning, as in the case of strokes, heart attacks, and brain damage due to addictions or physical trauma.
Additionally, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been effectively utilized as a holistic approach in the treatment of many neurological impairment and inflammatory conditions. Autism, MS and ALS, Fibromyalgia, Cerebral Palsy, Neuropathies, Parkinson’s, Arthritis, among others; are treated with HBOT because of its efficacy in decreasing inflammation, enhancing circulation and promoting new cell growth, including brain neurons.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a relaxing way to naturally increase stamina and endurance, enhance immunity, boost mental acuity and memory, strengthen heart and lungs, relieve muscle stiffness, inflammation & pain, and improve sleeping disorders. Stimulating and rejuvenating all our cells, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy returns the body to a state of balance, relaxation and well-being.
