mild Hyperbaric Therapy

mild Hyperbaric Therapy (mHBT) is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment, at a level higher than 1 atmosphere absolute (ATA). Increased pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma (independent of hemoglobin/red blood cells), which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects. This noninvasive therapy is the most trusted way to increase oxygen levels to all organs of the body. The typical treatment lasts for 60 minutes, during which the patient lies down and breathes normally. 

mHBT has been demonstrated in several clinical studies to enhance the body’s innate ability to repair and regenerate. It is used as an adjunct therapy to complement and enhance the healing process in both chronic and acute conditions.

It’s like when you purchase a bottle of soda, the CO2 (carbon dioxide) gas bubbles are under pressure, which decreases the size of the bubbles enough that they dissolve into the liquid. Therefore, you are unable to see them. When pressure is released, the volume of each bubble increases and the bubbles appear. While an individual is under pressure, the oxygen molecules decrease in size and are able to dissolve into the blood plasma. This exponentially increases oxygen delivery throughout the body and makes it possible for oxygen to reach inflamed tissue and support optimal cellular and organ functionality. Increasing oxygenation to your body helps support optimal immune function and detoxification. 

Other reported benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy include:

  • Improved healing after concussion
  • Improved cognitive function
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Increased ability to fight off infections
  • Increased blood flow
  • Faster healing
  • Increased energy
  • Increased sense of well-being and vitality
  • Improved sports/athletic recovery
