If you have never tried Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, then it is no surprise that you have a lot of questions about the treatment. Here are answers to a few common questions, to help you learn more about the benefits available from this therapy:

What are the Benefits of HBOT?

Boosting oxygen levels in the body supports tissue growth and regeneration. Most illnesses and diseases originate at the cellular level, so a cellular treatment is needed for healing. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides the extra oxygen that promotes the natural healing functions in the body. This therapy can be used for a wide variety of health concerns.

What is the Difference Between an Oxygen Bar and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

A visit to an oxygen bar is cheaper than HBOT, and some people might assume that they will receive the same oxygen exposure. But, the truth is that the pressure in HBOT is the key factor to deliver results. When the oxygen is delivered under pressure, then it dissolves in the blood plasma and can travel to deeper areas in the body.

Will HBOT Hurt While I am in the Chamber?

There are potential side effects for people with certain types of lung conditions. But, most people only experience positive benefits from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. It is important that you talk to a medical professional to decide if this therapy is right for you.

When Will I Experience the Benefits?

Most people want to experience benefits right away. But, usually the positive benefits of this therapy will be noticed after several sessions. Consistency is key if you want to improve your health.

How Should I Prepare for My HBOT Session?

Before an HBOT session, it is important to notify our staff if you are on any medications or experiencing any flu or cold symptoms. For best results, you should stop smoking before and after the treatments. Don’t wear any petroleum or alcohol-based cosmetic or beauty products, such as shaving lotion, makeup, perfume, or hairspray.
