Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy allows you to breathe pure oxygen while lying inside a pressure chamber. The treatments deliver extraordinary high oxygen levels, which speeds up your natural healing process. 

In average daily living, you breathe air, which is only 21% oxygen. Your red blood cells carry oxygen throughout your body. 

By receiving 100% pure oxygen under pressure, the oxygen is more readily dissolved into all body fluids, including blood, plasma, lymphatic fluid, cerebrospinal fluid, and interstitial fluid.

Hyperbaric pressure pushes oxygen into every cell of your body. Increased oxygen levels can help reduce inflammation, promote healing, and encourage tissue regeneration. 

The treatments last between 60-90 minutes. You simply relax while breathing pure oxygen. When administered at Doctors Clinic, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is safe and promotes enhanced health and well-being.
