Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Q & A in Santa Clarita CA
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a simple and non-invasive procedure that provides the body with higher-than-normal oxygen levels. HBOT is a specialized therapy that uses an increase in atmospheric pressure to allow the body to incorporate more oxygen into blood cells, blood plasma, and other body fluids.
The healing process occurs when a severely compromised tissue in the body begins to receive a healing dose of oxygen. This process has physiologic benefits for the body including Improved energy levels, regenerating tissue, reducing inflammation, reducing pain, boosting the immune system, and repairing damaged tissues.
Is it safe?

How long does a session last?

A common protocol to achieve physiological benefits is called the “40-hour hyperbaric protocol”. Typically, 5 consecutive days are recommended, with a 2-day rest period. With this protocol, a full 40 hours of HBOT can be accomplished in about 2 months.
