Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a proven, reliable medical treatment recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA). It’s has been used in the Deep-Sea Diving Industry for over 100 years and medically for over 300 years. Thousands of Medical Studies support its use. While its use is more widespread and medically accepted internationally, it’s popularity and acceptance continue to grow as World-Class Athletes, Celebrities, Physicians, Medical Support Groups and the public become more aware of its amazing benefits.
Typical treatments (called a Dive) are one hour long, during which you can watch TV, a movie, or relax listening to music. You will experience slight pressure changes in your ears, like air travel . Protocols are customized based upon condition or needs, but typically range from 5 to 40 treatments.

Spinal Cord Injury
Depending on the severity of the injury, Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can improve motor function in patients with spinal cord injury. Studies indicate that hyperbaric oxygen therapy reduces apoptosis, down regulates aquaporin 4/9 mRNA and protein expression in injured spinal cord tissue, improves the local microenvironment for nerve regeneration, and protects and repairs the spinal cord after injury.
This chronic pain syndrome can be accompanied by – and perhaps related to, other physical and mental conditions that include fatigue, cognitive impairment, irritable bowel syndrome and sleep disturbance. Clinical studies involving those diagnosed with fibromyalgia showed the painful condition improved in the majority of those who completed two months of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
The rationale behind using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for migraines and chronic headaches is that treatments increase cerebral blood flow, thereby delivering oxygen to areas of the brain which are thought to be hypoxic. Greater amounts of blood and oxygen stimulate cerebral tissues and aid in recovery of idling neurons. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy also reduces swelling of brain tissues which aid in neurological function.
Children with anoxic or hypoxic brain injuries, such as cerebral palsy can see potential benefits using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy by reducing brain inflammation, saturating damaged tissue, opening new pathways for the brain activity.
While not a primary treatment, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can be used as an adjunctive treatment along with primary therapies including chemotherapy or radiation. Most Cancer cells require a hypoxic environment to replicate. Cancer cells have an altered metabolism and no longer depend upon oxygen. In fact, high oxygenated environments are toxic to most cancer cells and both slows their growth and triggers cell death mechanisms within them.
Crohn’s Disease and Colitis
According to multiple studies, most participants with Crohn’s disease had clinical improvements using HBOT, while virtually all patients with ulcerative colitis improved. This included a significant decrease in proinflammatory cytokines (IL-1, IL-6 and TNF-alpha) and in ulcerative colitis reported a decrease in IL-6.
Medical professionals and hyperbaric scientists around the world have proven the benefits of applying Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the reduction of and actual reversal of many heart disease signs and symptoms.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is also used as an adjunctive therapy for treating Lyme Disease. The Lyme disease bacterium is “anaerobic,” which means that it cannot exist in high oxygen environment. By increasing oxygen levels within your body, treatment can assist in a reduction of the harmful bacteria.
MS (Multiple Sclerosis)
Medical research demonstrates that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can play an important role in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). In several European countries it is considered Standard of Care. In England alone, over 10,000 MS patients currently receive hyperbaric oxygen treatment. Recent studies in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine demonstrated significant improvements in a variety of MS symptoms.
More and more research is being published on the benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Parkinson’s disease/syndrome. This therapy is beginning to be widely used in neurodegenerative conditions, particularly movement disorders. Overall, patients tend to show significant improvement after hyperbaric oxygenation therapy.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Concussion
When injured, the brain has a systemic inflammatory response that impacts a much larger area surrounding the injury. Flooding the brain with oxygen reduces swelling and opens new neuronal pathways. When the body and brain are infused with massive amounts of oxygen during hyperbaric treatment, damaged brain cells known as “idling neurons” can literally wake up and return to normal function.
When cells in the brain die, either from trauma or lack of oxygen, blood plasma leaks out into surrounding brain tissue causing swelling and reducing blood flow. These otherwise normal cells go dormant because they can’t function without the appropriate amount of oxygen. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy dramatically increases the oxygen carried in the blood plasma, making oxygen available to heal damaged capillary walls, preventing plasma leakage and reducing swelling. As the swelling decreases, blood flow can be restored to the dormant tissue (neovascularization) and these cells then have the potential to function again.
Research Studies indicate that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can actually improve the pathology of Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and correct behavioral deficits associated with the disease.
