HYPERBARIC OXYGEN | HEAL
HOW HYPER-OXYGENATION WORKS.
Hyperbaric oxygen increases the concentration of cellular oxygen into the plasma, decreasing the level of inflammation and swelling of micro-circulation in the body to promote advanced healing.
Another influencing mechanism is increasing mitochondrial size and density, furthermore aiding the production of ATP; the primary source of fuel in the body. Increased ATP levels result in boosted immunity, accelerated recovery from illness/injury, and heightened cognition.
WHO IS HYPERBARIC OXYGEN FOR?
As with any therapeutic intervention, the medicine is in the dose. Hyperbaric oxygen has a variety of indications because treatment durations can be manipulated to influence different cellular mechanisms within the cell. For example, shorter durations (30 minutes) have been shown to increase cognition and focus, whereas longer durations (90 minutes) have been shown to promote cellular repair and recovery.
SHORT DURATION TREATMENTS
Enhanced cognition and focus
Jet lag improvement
LONG DURATION TREATMENTS
Acute injury repair
Carbon monoxide poisoning
And 9 others...
Improve cellular energy and optimizes tissue functioning. Those with residual carbon monoxide (i.e., smokers) or with mild anemia can show immediate benefits with cellular energy. Inflammatory markers can decrease considerably and begin a natural repair process.
Typically used for acute injuries with soft tissue damage, particularly if pain is involved.
Use with more serious acute injuries or chronic injuries.
Commonly used for major tissue damage and when new tissue is required,
through HBOT’s regenerative stem cell properties.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO EXPERIENCE BENEFITS?
THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR SESSION.
There are very few contra-indications to hyperbaric oxygen, but that doesn't mean we go without mentioning them. This modality is an incredible healing intervention, however no therapeutic is one size fits all. Patients with open wounds, aggressive autoimmune conditions or active infections may not benefit from hyperbaric oxygen.
