Are there any side effects?
No dangerous side effects have been reported with Mild Hyperbaric Therapy.
However, there are a few things to keep in mind when preparing for your first session in a chamber:

  1. Some people experience a mild discomfort to the ears when pressurizing the chamber, not unlike during the ascending part of an airplane ride.
  2. Some people following their first few sessions experience slight fatigue as the body sweeps itself clear of toxic debris that has built up in the body. This is safe and necessary.
  3. It is advisable that you wear comfortable, loose clothing. (Pantyhose and other tight garments may contribute to feelings of claustrophobia.) Bring something to read, as the sessions last about 60 minutes. You may want to bring a favorite cd, dvd player, portable game, etc.
  4. Do not drink large amounts of fluids before entering the chamber.
  5. Do not wear perfume or cologne when you are coming for your session.
