We’re delighted to announce that we are adding a new service to our clinic – Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
How does hyperbaric oxygen therapy work?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy(HBOT) uses the power of oxygen to heal the body. Every cell requires oxygen to power the metabolic processes that release energy and produce life. Cells use oxygen in cellular respiration to extract stored energy which can then be used to heal and repair. HBOT increases the level of oxygen in the blood, which in turn raises the amount of oxygen being delivered to the cells, tissues and organs.
For the more technically savvy, HBOT is the use of increased atmospheric pressure and increased pressure of oxygen to facilitate higher levels of oxygen moving into and circulating through the body. When the body is in an environment of increased pressure, cells are able to absorb a greater amount of oxygen. This is because gas under pressure diffuses into liquid(google Henry’s Law for a more detailed With increased pressure and increased oxygen, more oxygen is dissolved into the blood and is able to enter the cells to trigger healing. There are different types of hyperbaric oxygen chambers with different levels of pressure. Mild hyperbaric chambers are very safe, conformable and relaxing.
