Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy


mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) uses a pressurized chamber to allow the cells of the body to become readily saturated with oxygen which becomes more bioavailable in facilitating the body's natural healing capacity.




HBOT increases oxygen carried into the blood stream. This allows oxygen to dissolve deep into the body and reverse hypoxia. This can help areas damaged during surgery or due to blood loss.

HBOT downregulates inflammatory pathways and constricts blood vessels. In the long term it also can turn off the genes responsible for inflammation.

Antimicrobial Effect
HBOT weakens infection-causing bacteria and strengthens the natural antioxidants and free radical scavengers that are present in your body.

HBOT stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, there by increasing circulation and revitalizing the tissue.

Stem Cell Mobilization
During HBOT, the circulation of stem cells can increase eight fold. Stem cells are key in the regeneration and healing process.

Mitochondrial Support
HBOT facilitates the production of adenosine triphosphate or ATP. When damage occurs in the body the production of ATP is often interrupted. HBOT optimizes the energy production of your cells.

Clinical Study: Mild Hyperbarics for Impaired Brain Function by Dr. Gunnar Heuser, MD, PhD, FACP

"Every one of the patients who participated in the study showed improvement after only 10 treatments. Reporting fewer problems with short term memory, balance, headaches, and other symptoms of poor circulation in the brain. The SPECT scans objectively confirmed an increase in blood flow and oxygen to effected areas of the brain"
