What is Hyperbaric Medicine?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) delivers oxygen, under pressure, to tissues in the body. This action increases the levels of oxygen in the plasma, lymphatic fluid and cerebrospinal fluid which stimulates healing. 

Increasing oxygen levels combats microbial infections by activating white blood cells.

This helps to rid the body of bacteria, viruses and yeast. It also helps reduce inflammation, oxidative stress and free radical damage while simultaneously stimulating blood vessel and collagen formation.  

In addition, there are many animal and clinical examples showing the benefits of hyperbaric medicine in promoting neurological recovery through axon regeneration following nerve trauma.

What makes our hyperbaric chamber special?  

Most chambers are horizontal which means that a person must lie down while in it.  As you can see from the photos below our chamber is a vertical chamber.  This means that a person can comfortably sit in a chair while in the chamber. Our patients can read a book or magazine, work on their laptop, watch a movie on their ipad and listen to music via bluetooth during their time in our chamber.

When two people sit in the chamber at once each person pays for their half of the treatment cost which literally cuts the price in half!

In addition, our chamber is 100% wheelchair accessible.  The unique design allows a wheelchair to be wheeled into the chamber so the person can receive treatment without having to be lifted in and out of their chair.
