hOW Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) WORKS
HBOT exposes the body to 100% oxygen in a monoplace chamber, whereas the breathable air in our environment consists of about 21% oxygen. During a “dive,” the body is exposed to higher barometric pressure which allows oxygen to diffuse directly into blood plasma. Our chamber’s pressure of up to 3 atmospheres (atm) is similar to what a scuba diver feels at a depth of 20 meters (66ft). With the two components of increased pressure and maximal oxygen exposure, HBOT is able to create a tissue oxygen tension 10x greater than normal. The higher the oxygen tension, the better the body is able to fight infection.
HBOT is used to treat several medical conditions ranging from anemia to multiple sclerosis. A very interesting use is the considerable benefit for patients wanting to promote longevity and prevent illness. Studies have also shown patients can experience a cognition boost while preventing the onset of dementia.
What happens during therapy
One HBOT treatment session lasts 90 minutes. This includes 15 minutes of increasing pressurization (the dive), followed by 60 minutes of therapy, and 15 minutes of decreased pressurization (decompression). Numerous consecutive treatment sessions are recommended for maximum results.
$150 per session – up to 10 sessions
$125 per session – after 10 sessions

Health genes activated to decrease inflammatory markers in the body.
After just two dives in the HBOT, I slept better and noticed a difference with cognitive skills!
