What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides a dose of pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. Initially, it was used to relieve deep sea divers’ decompression sickness caused by surfacing too quickly. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has since shown positive healing effects on tissues in cases of infection and injury.

Your body requires adequate oxygen to thrive. In the hyperbaric chamber, the air pressure is much higher than normal. This high pressure enables your blood to take in more oxygen than it can at normal air pressure.

Your blood carries this extra oxygen throughout your body to provide your cells and tissues with more energy for better healing. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy also stimulates the release of growth factors and stem cells, promoting healing and extraordinary wellness.


What conditions benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases how much oxygen your blood can carry. This blood oxygen increase temporarily restores normal levels of blood gasses and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection. Dr. Stumpf recommends hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat neurological symptoms and promote tissue healing after an injury.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is especially powerful when coupled with infrared light therapy which additionally brings in more oxygen and blood flow to a specific area. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can also help improve your daily function, delay aging, and enhance your overall vitality. You don’t have to be sick or injured to benefit.
