Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a form of therapy that safely increases the body’s oxygen uptake by raising the barometric pressure. Mild hyperbaric chambers are simple enclosures that can be pressurized to allow the person inside to experience atmospheric pressures greater than normal environmental pressures of 1.3ATA (similar to swimming in approx 11 to 15 feet of water). The Pressure, combined with ambient air purified to around 89-93% oxygen has been said to force the oxygen to dissolve into the body’s fluids and travel to areas of the body otherwise difficult to reach. It is also said that the dissolved oxygen saturates the plasma, the lymph, the synovial (joint) fluid and the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been known to speed up recovery from injury and surgery by 50-70%, it is also said, 1 hour in this oxygen-rich environment has the same health benefits as 4 hours REM sleep.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is also said to assist the detox process, improve sleep, reduce inflammation and has been proven to reverse ageing.
