Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

One type of treatment we offer is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). HBOT is a safe and evidence-based therapy that helps the body’s oxygen-dependent, wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently. While enclosed in a chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure, you’ll breathe pure oxygen. HBOT saturates your blood plasma, allowing it to carry between 15 to 20 times the normal amounts of healing oxygen to your body’s tissues, which helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of supportive growth factors and stem cells. The additional oxygen in your blood helps your body to naturally heal wounds from the inside out.

Our HBOT suite features two large clear acrylic hyperbaric oxygen chambers, each with its own TV/VCR and CD player for you to watch movies or listen to music during treatment.
