Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Definition of Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a treatment where patients breathe in high concentrations of oxygen in a mildly pressurized chamber, with a pressure ≤ 30% greater than normal atmospheric pressure.
The Importance of Oxygen
Oxygen is the essential energy producing element of life. It’s the cellular “fuel” in the body for optimal overall health and well-being. Many health problems and conditions can be contributed to an insufficient supply of oxygen.
- Stress Relief
- Stronger Immune System
- Joint Flexibility
- Balancing Metabolism
- Enhancing Circulation
- Optimizing Skin Health
- Healthier Digestive System
- Augmenting Oral Hygiene
- Increasing Energy
- Overall Wellbeing
- Clearer / Brighter Eyes
- To Achieve Glossy / Shiny Coat
- Weight Control
- Reducing Effects of Aging
- The air we breathe at sea level (1 atmosphere) contains around 20.9% oxygen.
- While in the Model A2 chamber, it allows the patient to breathe up to five times more oxygen than outside the chamber.
- As cellular oxygen concentration reaches an optimal level, it increases patient energy, rejuvenation and overall well-being.
- A typical therapy session involves the patient breathing normally while resting comfortably in the chamber for approximately 30-45 min. The length and number of treatments is dependent upon desired goal and professional recommendations.
