About Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

There are 6 primary effects Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:

  1. Reduces edema and inflammation – Generally at pressure, 1st session. (1-3 Sessions).
  2. Build white blood cells to kill harmful organisms in the body (1-3 Sessions).
    Produces collagen and new capillaries (within 10-20 sessions).
  3. It kills anaerobic bacteria, bacteria that does not live or grow when oxygen is present. In humans, these bacteria are most commonly found in the gastrointestinal tract, (20- 40+ sessions).
  4. Helps heal tissue (tendons, ligaments, meniscus in the joints, spinal discs, bones, and even brain tissues) and poorly perfused tissue (Example: slow-healing wounds like wounds resulting from diabetes) (40 – 60+ Sessions).
  5. It helps regrow damaged nervous system cells & Stem Cells – Such as neuropathy or brain injury (40 – 60+ Sessions).
  6. It helps heal Vaso-deficient tissue (tendons, ligaments, meniscus in the joints, spinal discs, bones, and even the brain) and poorly perfused tissue (40 – 60+ Sessions).


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for cancer

All potential HBOT patients are required to complete our medical waiver and chat with our medical team. Which can be done in our office or from the privacy of your own home. Following clearance, we will schedule your appointment and our certified technicians will guide you into the chamber, assisting with the placement of your mask. Patients with asthma and other lung, cancers and heart conditions are required get clearance from your doctor.

The medical review includes:

  • Medical health history
  • Checking for the ability to equalize your ears under pressure
  • Checking lungs, Chest X-rays and pulmonary function tests may be required
  • Eye examination may be required, if ongoing HBOT treatments are required
  • Any other tests the a referring Physician requires, depending upon your condition and state of health


Your therapy will be provided in mono-place chamber. Meaning a single unit with a clear cover so you are comfortable.

  • You lie down in a transparent, atmosphere-controlled chamber that circulates pure oxygen at a pressure that is two to three times greater than normal. You are free to move during treatment and may relax by listening to music, chatting with our staff, or taking a nap.
  • Or you may prefer one of our walk-in chambers where you can sit and relax and just breathe.


HBO therapy has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat non-healing wounds and several other medical conditions. There are no serious side effects as the patient is breathing concentrated Oxygen. Oxygen is required by all living people(and, animals) existence and cellular growth.


Clients are generally treated once a day, but some may require therapy twice a day. The number of treatments (also referred to as “dives or sessions”) prescribed for you (where applicable), their duration and the exact pressure used will depend on your condition. You will generally require between 20 and 40 treatments for up to 2 hours each treatment depending on your current medical condition. Normal treatment days are Monday through Friday, excluding major holidays.

How long will it take? That depends. The number of sessions and length of treatment will vary based on your particular condition, progress and goals. For instance, diabetic wounds typically require a series of 90 to 120 minute sessions, while those with brain injury remain in the chamber for one hour each visit. Wound healing may require up to 40 treatments.
