What is Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
This innovative therapy delivers concentrated oxygen, at a pressure of 1.3 ATA, which will then help oxygen reach injured tissues, to a depth four times what normal healthy blood supply can penetrate. The therapy relies on Henry’s Law – the behavior of gases and liquids under pressure, to cause oxygen to become dissolved into fluids such as plasma, synovial fluid and the cerebrospinal fluid, and therefore can help to saturate areas of the brain that may need the additional oxygen in order to promote healing – including the brain, muscles, organs, joints and nervous system.
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy supports healing through:
- Forcing greater penetration of oxygen into tissues
- Decreasing inflammation
- Increasing the formation of white blood cells
- Saturating blood plasma with oxygen
- Increasing stem cell production
- Promotion of angiogenesis
- Decreasing viral and bacterial systemic load
- Increasing serotonin production
- Decreased oxidative stress
- An antimicrobial effect
- Increased blood flow to hard to reach areas of the body
- Increased stem cell production
- Up-regulation of enzymes related to antioxidant functions
- Helps to rid the body of certain metals and minerals which may normally have a toxic effect on the body.
