How Does It Work?

  • The mild hyperbaric chamber is filled with compressed ambient air from 2 to 4.5 pounds per square inch. (1.3 ATA max) This is the equivalent of 11 feet below sea level.
  • The increased pressure allows the blood plasma and other liquids of the body to absorb additional oxygen thus greatly increasing oxygen uptake by the cells, tissues, glands, organs, brain, and fluids of the body.
  • The resulting uptake of oxygen allows for increased circulation to areas with swelling or inflammation. At the same time, the increased pressure decreases swelling and inflammation.
  • Oxygen is then utilized by the body for vital cell functions, healthier cells equals healthier tissues, and organs.
  • The human body is capable of healing itself when it has what it needs. There is NOTHING the human body needs more than OXYGEN.
