We are excited to be able to offer hyperbaric Oxygen therapy in New Plymouth
What is it?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a safe and natural treatment that uses the power of pressurized oxygen to revitalize and regenerate your body’s healing system.
This therapy involves entering a special chamber to breath in pure oxygen where the pressure levels are 1.5 to 3 times higher than average. The end goal being to fill the blood with enough oxygen to repair tissues and help restore body function.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps with wound healing by bringing oxygen rich plasma to tissue starved for oxygen. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy reduces swelling while flooding tissues with oxygen. The pressure in the chamber increases the amount of oxygen in the blood breaking the cycle of swelling, oxygen starvation and tissue death.
Preventative therapy: Provides long term benefits against alzheimer, cancer, heart attack and strokes.
Traumatic brain or head injury: Wounds that occur in the white matter of the brain benefit from increased oxygen that can support head injuries.
Recovery: Helps reduce fatigue, inflammation, swelling and recovery time.
Enhanced immune system: Increases stem cells and enhances white blood cells to help fight infection
Collagen growth: Regular sessions can be beneficial for skin health
Wound healing: Increased blood flow and continuous oxygen delivered through microcirculation is a key part to healing and increased resistance to infection.
