So What is a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, and Why Should You Try One?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (MHBOT) are both treatments where pure oxygen is inhaled for a prescribed period of time.

“During treatment, the amount of oxygen in the patient’s bloodstream increases significantly. In the pressurized atmosphere, oxygen molecules are delivered around the body at a rapid rate, absorbing into plasma, tissue, and major organs.

When oxygen reaches damaged tissues or swollen arteries, it stimulates the release [of chemicals that in turn allow] the body to produce new cells and regenerate itself from the inside out. By enabling the growth of new cells, HBOT has proven effective in treating wounds”.

The treatment has been lauded as a means of boosting wellbeing, increasing energy, accelerating recovery times and improving symptoms experienced by individuals who live with various health conditions. Celebrities boast about hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy’s powerful detoxifying effects, and its advantages for markedly improving their focus, performance, and overall sense of wellness.

Indeed, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (MHBOT)  have become the health practice du jour.


So How Exactly Does It Work?

According to OXY PERFORMANCE, a leading provider of in-home Oxygen Chambers for rental and for purchase: “Mild oxygen therapy is the use of oxygen (ambient air) at a higher level than atmospheric pressure at sea level (1 ATA). […] the red blood cells become oxygen saturated and the oxygen goes into all body fluids like the blood plasma, cerebrospinal fluid, the lymph, all the organs including the brain at a different pace.”


OXY PERFORMANCE’s clients often purchase and rent their chambers for commonly experienced benefits including increased energy, pain relief, sports performance, improved muscle tone, better focus and anti-aging results. Unsurprisingly, MHBOT has become a popular treatment for pro athletes such as IBF Super Middleweight World Champion Caleb Plant, and Hollywood celebrities looking for the powerful anti-aging benefits of Oxygen treatments!

A typical session usually lasts one to two hours, during which a person enters a sealed cylindrical chamber (similar to a tanning bed, only fully enclosed). People report sleeping, relaxing, and even watching a movie or reading a book inside their chambers. Following the recommended use, fans describe a notable increase in energy, mental alertness and relaxation.


Who is a Good Candidate for Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (MHBOT)?

MHBOT reduces swelling and delivers Oxygen to poorly circulated areas, so this wellness tool can likewise benefit anyone who simply cares to improve his/her overall health. In fact, nowadays, there are many non-medical uses for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

“Have you noticed the way your skin glows after exercising? This change occurs when cells and tissues have been bathed in oxygen-rich blood. Healthy circulation can help keep skin youthful and vibrant. Likewise, muscular strain and overextension can be remedied by the improvement of oxygen-rich blood filtering through places of trauma.

With MHBOT, oxygen can enter into every tissue of the body and brain. This can mean a reduction in wrinkles, age spots, damaged skin cells, and sagging skin, along with shorter recovery times between sports injuries.

Another non-medical condition MHBOT is sometimes used for is the treatment of moderate to severe hangovers. Because oxygen is pushed deep into the tissues during hyperbaric treatment, MHBOT can alleviate migraines, fatigue, and nausea – symptoms all commonly associated with heavy drinking.”

Now that you know that MHBOT can improve everything from inflammation to wrinkles or even a hangover, the only question left is:
