During a hyperbaric session, the patient rests comfortably inside an enclosure called a hyperbaric chamber. The pressure in the chamber is slowly increased to a pressure of 1.3 atmospheres of pressure, which is equivalent to the pressure felt when diving to 10 foot below sea level or descending over 11,000 vertical feet. The increased pressure in the chamber (hyper=high, baric=pressure) allows the blood, plasma and other liquids of the body to absorb additional oxygen, greatly increasing oxygen uptake by the cells, tissues, glands, organs, brain and fluids of the body. These elevated oxygen levels prompt a multitude of healthy benefits that culminate in a dramatic healing effect.

What is it?

It is a non-invasive clinically proven treatment for altitude sickness and overall wellness. The Hyperbaric Chamber could just save your holiday! 

What can it be used for?

Hyperbaric therapy is great for beating Jet Lag, acclimatizing to the altitude, recovering faster from hard workouts, treks or physical exertions. In addition, it helps the body recover faster from injuries and surgeries as well as improving overall wellness (anti-aging, reducing stress and anxiety, improving concentration and cognitive abilities).

How long do the affects last?

The affects are instantaneous and in many times they can be long lasting.

How many sessions do I need to have?

It depends what your aims are. For altitude one to three sessions are sufficient and even after one session you will feel significantly better. For wellness, it is important to take each case independently but the affects will clearly be felt following the first session.

How much does it cost? 

We have tried our best to keep the costs affordable for all (please note that in the US a 60 minute session starts from $150). 

 

1 session: 

60 minutes - $50

90 minutes - $75

 

2 session:

60 minutes - $80

90 minutes - $130

 

3 sessions:

60 minutes - $110

90 minutes - $210

A More Technical Explanation of How it Works

A gas under pressure is more likely to dissolve into a liquid. In Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, the gas is oxygen and the liquid is blood. However, under pressure, oxygen doesn’t only hook up to red blood cells (the “traditional” way oxygen is delivered to tissues); it also dissolves into the plasma, the liquid portion of the blood. When that oxygen-enriched plasma circulates near dormant or injured tissue such as a bruised muscle, a sprained tendon or ligament, a surgical wound, or an injured brain as a result of head trauma, the oxygen in the plasma can infiltrate more deeply into the damaged area.

I have really bad altitude sickness, is this the right place for me?

If your altitude sickness is severe and you feel you need to go to hospital or see a Doctor then we recommend visiting the 02 Medical Network Clinic. It is important to note we are not doctors and if you need medical attention you shouldn't hesitate to get it.
