Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been proven to heal disease and wounds that have been resistant to treatment. Many wounds fail to heal because the supply of oxygen received by the damaged tissue is too low for the body to heal itself. Hyperbaric therapy causes oxygen to increase in the blood. It nourishes tissue with poor circulation, improves the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and boosts the body’s own natural healing process.

What is a Hyperbaric session like?
Each treatment session in the hyperbaric chamber lasts approximately two hours. Our multi-person chamber accommodates up to eight patients sitting comfortably. The chamber space is similar to what you would experience in a first-class cabin of an airplane; with room to stand, walk around, and includes a bathroom for convenience. We can accommodate wheelchairs and stretchers. Each session is attended by a certified HBOT Technician. Patients wear their own clothes during treatment and may enjoy watching TV, napping, or reading.
