What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), also known as oxygen therapy, involves the use of a pressurised chamber to deliver higher levels of oxygen to the body and brain. It supports the treatment of various conditions by saturating tissues with oxygen, promoting healing and recovery.

How does it work?

Patients enter a pressurised hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, similar to a commercial aircraft cabin, and breathe pure oxygen at an increased pressure. The elevated atmospheric pressure in the chamber allows the body to absorb higher oxygen levels, enhancing oxygen delivery to cells and tissues. This influx of oxygen stimulates the body’s natural healing processes.

What is it used for?

Today, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is commonly used to support patients undergoing treatment for conditions such as non-healing wounds, diabetic ulcers, radiation injuries, carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness, and certain infections. HBOT can also be used for post-surgery recovery, diabetic foot ulcers, chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis, and as adjunctive therapy for certain cancers. Additionally, HBOT can aid in the recovery of sports injuries such as muscle strains and ligament sprains by promoting tissue repair and reducing inflammation.

How Long Does a Treatment Last?

A typical HBOT session ranges from 60 to 90 minutes, and many people find the therapy to be a profoundly relaxing experience.

Treatment Benefits

1. Increased oxygenation to the body’s tissues

Increased oxygenation to the body’s tissues enhances cellular metabolism, aiding in energy production and tissue repair. This improved oxygen supply also supports the immune system, aiding in the removal of toxins and boosting overall health, from improved cognitive function to faster muscle recovery.

2. Increased blood flow and circulation

Improved circulation optimises oxygen and nutrient delivery, aiding cell function and tissue repair while removing toxins. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy enhances blood oxygenation and circulation, promoting detoxification, reducing inflammation, and bolstering overall health.

3. Builds and repairs blood cells (angiogenesis)

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) stimulates the production of new blood cells, aiding in tissue repair and regeneration. By enhancing oxygen delivery to tissues, HBOT promotes healing and supports the body’s natural mechanisms for building and repairing blood cells.

4. Boosts collagen production (synthesis)

HBOT enhances collagen synthesis, vital for skin and organ health as the body’s main protein. It fosters healing in compromised skin grafts and aids recovery from radiation injuries post-cancer treatment, facilitating overall tissue repair and regeneration.

5. Promotes wound healing (in damaged tissues)

HBOT aids wound healing by reducing swelling and increasing oxygen supply to damaged tissues. This promotes nutrient influx, stimulating repair processes and attracting endothelial cells crucial for tissue regeneration.

6. Reduces the effects of harmful bacteria and toxins

HBOT elevates blood oxygen levels, bolstering cell resilience against infections. It helps combat harmful bacteria and toxins by creating an inhospitable environment. Enhanced oxygenation enables white blood cells to better detect and eliminate pathogens.

7. Reduces pain and swelling

HBOT’s applications extend beyond decompression sickness treatment, offering relief for various conditions. It improves quality of life for those with musculoskeletal pain, enhancing pain thresholds and physical functionality. Additionally, it reduces swelling in wound injuries, promoting oxygen-rich plasma flow.

8. Enhances energy levels

Studies of individuals who underwent HBOT sessions point towards a noticeable improvement in their energy levels and overall wellness. This is suspected to be connected to the increase in oxygen saturation in body tissues, allowing for a better metabolism and consequently more energy production.

9. Enhanced Brain Function

The brain consumes 20% of the body’s entire oxygen supply. HBOT enhances brain function by improving cerebral blood flow, metabolism, and microstructure. This boosts cognitive and physical abilities, enhances sleep quality, and improves gait, as evidenced by research findings.

How the Treatment Works

01

Pressurisation Phase: During this stage, the chamber is filled with air under pressure, a process lasting approx. 15 minutes, followed by sealing of the door to maintain the desired pressure level.

02

Oxygen Breathing Phase. Commencing when oxygen is supplied through the delivery system, this stage typically lasts 60-90 minutes in our standard treatment protocol.

03

Decompression Phase:  During this stage, the pressure within the treatment compartment gradually decreases to reach room pressure, a process typically taking 7-10 minutes.

What our customers says about it

After been predominantly bed – and housebound for more than 3 years with severe ME/cfs, I tried HBOT and RLT. The results are just amazing! I am able to do things I haven’t done in months and even years. Experiencing periods without any pain, illness and severe fatigued is almost like a miracle. I am beyond grateful to have these treatments close by. Maya and her wonderful team provide a caring, clean and safe space with high level of customer service and knowledge.

HBOT, Theta Chamber, Red Light Therapy, Cryotherapy

I have just completed a 28 day Theta Chamber and Red light Therapy program at Element Health Centre in Claremont. I am very delighted with the results. Following the post Covid era I experienced some anxiety and brain fog and was just not feeling myself. These sessions have created a renewed mental clarity and enthusiasm I haven’t felt in a long time. My skin looks healthy and glowing. I feel renewed! The professionalism of the staff and their advice was excellent. Thank you to all the staff- it has been a wonderful experience and I look forward to continuing my visits in the future. Jane

FAQ's about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Learn more about the benefits of Hard Shell Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and how does it work?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) works by exposing the body to pure oxygen at higher-than-normal atmospheric pressures within a specialised chamber. This increased pressure allows oxygen to dissolve more effectively in the bloodstream and reach areas of the body with low oxygen levels due to injury, infection, or disease. As a result, HBOT promotes healing, reduces inflammation, and enhances the body’s natural ability to repair and regenerate damaged tissues.

Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy safe?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is generally considered safe when administered by trained professionals in an appropriate setting. However, like any treatment, it carries some risks and potential side effects, such as ear barotrauma (pressure-related ear discomfort), sinus discomfort, temporary nearsightedness (myopia), and oxygen toxicity in rare cases. It’s important to undergo HBOT under the guidance of wellness providers who can monitor and adjust treatment as needed to ensure safety and efficacy for each individual’s health condition.

What do I need to wear for a Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy session?

You can wear your normal attire. We suggest wearing loose and comfortable clothing whilst attending your session.

What should I expect during treatment and how long does a session last?

Your session in our hard chamber will last 60 to 90 minutes (or longer upon request) at pressures ranging from 1.3 to 2 ATA. While inside, you can take the opportunity to read, make calls or just take the time to relax.

How many sessions of Hyperbaric Oxygen do I need?

HBOT is an cumulative therapy where consistency is crucial. As you undergo more sessions, blood oxygen saturation increases, enhancing benefits week by week. Each individual’s needs vary, so session frequency and duration depend on personal circumstances. Contact us to tailor a personalised protocol for you.

Will I be monitored during the treatment session?

You will be closely monitored by the therapist who accompanies you to the chamber throughout your entire treatment. They will explain the treatment process and teach you different techniques for clearing your ears. Additionally, you can use the in-chamber phone to call the therapist, which includes an integrated alarm button for immediate assistance.

Can I bring a friend/partner/child?

Time in the chamber is dedicated to prioritising your self-care and is typically an individual experience, except for children who must be accompanied by their parents. If you prefer a shared experience, you have the option to book two chambers simultaneously. Please reach out to us directly to make arrangements for this.

I am undergoing chemotherapy, can I have Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?

Yes you can. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) may mitigate the side effects of chemotherapy (such as ‘chemo brain’) and radiation, and decrease the recovery time after surgical procedures. We do recommend consulting your physician beforehand.
