Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

What is mHBOT?

mHBOT is a specialised therapy that uses an increase in the atmospheric pressure to allow the body to incorporate more oxygen into the blood cells, blood plasma, cerebral-spinal fluid and joint fluids at greater volume.

How does mHBOT work?

To understand mHBOT, a good analogy is a can of fizzy drink. The can is a pressurised vessel, in the can there is liquid, then add a gas. According to Henry’s law, gas under pressure will dissolve into the liquid. Hence the “fizzy” in the drink.

In the Hyperbaric chamber, as the pressure goes up, more oxygen is “pushed” into the fluids to boost oxygen levels. Supplementary oxygen  is added to the chamber via the use of an oxygen concentrator.

This oxygen will become infused into all the body’s fluids, blood, plasma and cerebral fluids. Red blood cells become saturated with oxygen and all remaining oxygen dissolves directly into other body fluids and tissue.

Why is oxygen so important?

Nature dictates that healing cannot take place without adequate oxygen levels in the body’s tissues. Cells and tissues without oxygen die, or become hypoxic. Hypoxia is a condition in which the body, or a region of the body, is deprived of oxygen. Hypoxia is a major factor in the development of stroke, heart attack, Alzheimer’s, dementia and cancer.

Oxygen has natural healing properties and increasing the amount circulating throughout the body promotes faster and more effective healing for a wide variety of diseases and illnesses. It also provides numerous preventative health benefits.

How could mHBOT benefit me?


; Significantly reduces oedema
; Significantly reduces the inflammatory process
; Improves range of motion
; Increases the production of collagen
; Increases the healing and recovery process
; Supports scar tissue rehabilitation
; Promotes greater tissue strength
; Enhances the growth of new blood vessels (Angiogenesis) ; Increase oxygen levels in tissues (Hyperoxia)
; Increases oxygen perfusion around wounds
; Stimulates new capillary growth
; Improves bone regeneration for faster recovery
; Stimulates stem cell and growth factors
; Destroys anaerobic bacteria
; Increases removal of toxic bio-waste
; Increases white blood cell production
; Increases effectiveness of antibiotics
; Strong anti-microbial effect
; Reduces surgery complications for smokers
; Improves physical training (strength, energy and endurance) ; Improves memory and concentration
; Increases production of natural killer T-cells.

The HBOT Experience
You will feel a change in ear pressure (similar to the feeling on an aeroplane).
The remainder of the treatment will be peaceful and tranquil. A good time to relax, sleep, read or watch a movie.
Side effects reported are a slight pressure in the ear for a short while, a pleasant feeling of euphoria. Others have reported having their best night's sleep after
a session; others say it's like having the "cob-webs" removed from their brains!

Treatment Schedule
We are all unique individuals and our response time to any treatment is equally unique.
Research shows that chronic conditions such as Stroke, Coronary Heart Disease and Diabetic Ulcers, usually require 20–40 sessions.
• Acute sprain/strain injury. Individual results vary but expect considerable healing within 5–10 visits
• Pre and post surgery recovery. 2–3 treatments can prepare your body to recover better. After surgery a further 2–3 treatments will help decrease inflammation in tissue that causes pain and swelling. (Please discuss your surgery details with your Hyperbaric technician to ensure the appropriate treatment is given.)
• Detoxify or decrease inflammatory conditions such as Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis or Irritable Bowel Disease (IRB), studies show significant improvement in 10–20 sessions.
• Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Traumatic Brian Injury (TBI), Concussion, Bells Palsy or Alzheimer's Disease, a minimum commitment of 40 sessions is recommended due to the time required for the body to heal. These conditions also respond quickly when incorporated with certain
dietary changes and nutritional supplementation.
