What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an innovative treatment for various conditions and complaints. By inhaling 100% oxygen, the amount of oxygen in the blood plasma is increased.
This provides all kinds of tissues with a large amount of oxygen, improving tissue and cell repair, creating new stem cells and collagen, and providing the immune system.
How do you undergo Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
When you undergo hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment, you come to one of our practices to undergo a series of oxygen sessions. During your visits, you will take a seat in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber. This is a special space within which the pressure and amount of oxygen can be regulated.
During the sessions, the pressure in the oxygen chamber is increased. This is a very gradual process, so you will not notice much of it. Because you wear a nasal mask, you breathe pure oxygen. The combination of the higher pressure and the extra oxygen greatly increases the amount of oxygen in your body.
