Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the therapeutic use of oxygen in a pressurized environment.
Increased atmospheric pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood and plasma, which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular benefits.
This noninvasive therapy is the most trusted way to increase oxygen levels to all organs of the body.
Our highly experienced technicians will walk you through what you can expect for your first hyperbaric oxygen therapy session. We are happy to explain every aspect and welcome any questions you might have.
Our Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber (HBOC) is the largest soft-shell design available and is created for 2 adults to self-treat simultaneously. You can comfortably lay down or prop yourself up with pillows or blankets to read or work.
Three viewing windows illuminate the interior with room light and the gentle hum of the compressor is soothing. Many users take a nap, meditate or read during their session.
As the chamber slowly pressurizes you may feel as if you are swimming under water. At full pressure, you may feel as if you are 9-10’ under water which has been described as sleeping with a weighted blanket. During this initial “dive” your ears may pop slightly as if you are in an airplane, but this sensation is only temporary and very mild. Users often report feeling extremely relaxed during the treatment and tend to nap or meditate for their session.
Once complete, users report feeling relaxed, alert and well-rested. You may even sleep more deeply that night.
Duration is dependent upon the user’s goals and can range from 60-120 minutes. HEALTHSPAN members typically enjoy a mild hyperbaric session of approximately 1-hour.
It may take 5-10 minutes for the chamber to pressurize and 5-10 minutes for the chamber to return to normal pressure.
