Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) utilizes concentrated oxygen to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood. The concentrated oxygen is absorbed through the skin and from breathing and goes directly into the blood. The superficial capillary beds get “supersaturated” with oxygen. This higher O2 level increases the circulation of blood. The oxygen nourishes cells and cleanses as it circulates. The chamber is inflated to 1.3- 1.4 ATM (atmospheric pressure). The chamber is filled with concentrated oxygen so no tanks are necessary. Treatments are one hour long and are generally relaxing. Most people rest well and then feel energized after a session.
We first schedule you with our medical provider for an initial consultation and intake session.
Our chambers are state-of-the-art. Not cheap, ineffective low pressure systems.
We have a professional staff. We educate you in ways to maintain your youthfulness.
A luxurious environment that makes rejuvenation a delight.
We love and care about every single client. You always get deeply personal attention.
HOW IT WORKS:
The effects are cumulative so treatments are done daily during your prescribed treatment plan.
During your 60 minute session, relax! Read a book, watch a movie, meditate. It’s that easy.
Also ask us about putting together a custom package of therapies for you that can speed and compliment our powerful HBOT program.
HBOT is an excellent modality to improve immune function and to support cleansing. Any comprehensive cleansing program includes some form of oxygen therapy.
Weight gain, insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity result from inflammation a crippled metabolism. Oxygen increases cellular respiration, also called aerobic reactions. Cells need oxygen to create clean energy. Without adequate oxygen, the cellular reactions ferment, leading to acidic and toxic residues. These toxins then damage and disrupt the intricate metabolism of cells, leading to weight gain and toxicity.
I find good results in treating nerve problems, especially those related to scar tissue. I have also noted improved nerve function for certain types of neuropathy. The nerves themselves are fibrous. I believe the oxygen improves conduction by stimulating the conductive fibers.
Oxygen treatments have been used in Europe for decades to treat immune problems. Because oxygen inhibits bacteria, yeasts, and cells infected with a virus, it helps the immune system destroy and process harmful bugs. I had Lyme disease my recovery was dramatically improved from specific breathing techniques that increased the oxygen in my system. I recommend increased oxygen for people with hepatitis, HIV, herpes, shingles, Lyme disease, parasites, candida, etc.
Clods and flu can respond to oxygen therapy since the boost in oxygen helps cells scavenge and eliminate the bacterial or viral cells that are causing the symptoms.
At Premier, we do not have the capacity to treat severe wounds including gangrene, Chronic osteomyelitis (bone infection), Necrotizing fasciitis — flesh-eating bacteria, or Arterial wounds . Baptist Hospital has a chamber that is suited to these patients. However, we do do treat the following:
Failing skin grafts and flaps
Traumatic injury wounds
Brain and nerve problems
Conditions like MS, Parkinson’s, epilepsy, dementia and some types of anxiety involve lesions on the brain. Brain cells are especially sensitive to oxygen depletion. Increasing oxygen to the brain is paramount for these conditions to improve.
Any trauma, whether it is a fall, a car accident, a bruise, a surgery, or overuse injuries, causes damage to tissue. When your body’s tissues are compromised, they do not perform their functions well and some other part of your body suffers. One of the most basic ingredients needed to repair tissue is oxygen.
Hyperbaric oxygen even helps heal old traumas that have scarred over and become avascular (no blood supply). The oxygen supercharges the capillaries so that they can penetrate the dense, fibrous scar tissue and create vital, innervated tissue. To heal scars we have to get the body to grow blood vessels into the scar so that skin (or muscle) can be sustained. It has been proven by the medical establishment that oxygen rich capillaries are better able to penetrate the dense scar. Once the capillaries grow through the scar, skin cells can grow back.
Many cancer cells have been shown to dislike oxygen so it stands to reason that increasing oxygen levels in the blood would tend to inhibit those cells. At the present time, the FDA does not approve oxygen therapy as a treatment for cancer.
Hyperbaric Oxygen also supports healthy skin. Oxygen therapies are useful for skin rashes, including psoriasis and eczema.
World-class triathletes have used hyperbaric oxygen for many years with excellent results. Clinical trails have shown: increased recovery time after workouts, decreases in resting heart rate, better sleep, less muscle soreness, and of course, increased speed and endurance.
Heavy Metals detoxification
I recommend the use of oxygen for metal toxicity although I don’t know of any studies or evidence that directly relates cleansing heavy metals and oxygen therapy. I find that it plays a role in improving oxygen levels in the brain which could help regulate and repair tissue damaged from metals. There is likely a protective aspect to increasing oxygen that helps safeguard cells from damage due to exposure.
Oxygen is used in spas for increasing radiance and for reducing wrinkles. It is an integral part of complete facial rejuvenation packages including: advanced nutritive facials, lymphatic massage, and acupuncture.
We like to think our age management clinic is as close to finding the mythical fountain of youth as you can get. Immersing yourself in pure oxygen is a technologically advanced yet incredibly simple way to help maintain a youthful glow and “feel” younger. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can help us age gracefully by saturating areas of the body that are starved for oxygen, which may stimulate cell growth, regeneration & collagen production. More oxygen can put suppleness back in your skin and increase energy. It’s an all natural anti-aging treatment that works from the inside out. Simply breathing hyperbaric oxygen for 60 minute sessions (7 to 10 sessions recommended) in our state-of-the-art chamber is a revolutionary alternative to creams or lotions and doesn’t have the risk or the price tag of cosmetic surgery. Our clients tell us it refreshes and awakens the body, the mind, and the soul.
BENEFITS MAY INCLUDE:
Youthful, glowing skin.
Increased energy, sharpness, focus.
Boosts your immune system.
Strengthens joints, heart, vision.
Reduces age-related ailments.

MORE ON HYPERBARIC OXYGEN AND ITS BENEFITS….
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy saturates the patient’s plasma with oxygen resulting in increased oxygen delivery to tissues. Specifically, hyperbaric oxygen therapy promotes healing through enhancing white blood cell activity and initiating formation of new peripheral vascular vessels and nerve endings in damaged areas. Pressurized oxygen has healing capabilities. Oxygen expands and gets into the tissues and stimulates formation of new blood vessels, which leads to healing.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can promote healing in the brain and improve cognitive function. It may improve attention, concentration, the ability to follow directions, and hyperactivity.
Approved uses for HBOT are :
Radiation damage to body tissue
Stimulation of formation of new blood vessels
Wounds that do not heal
Carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation
It may also be used to treat a number of conditions including soft tissue injury, traumatic brain injury, chronic fatigue, cerebral palsy, stroke, candidiasis, allergies, autism, auto-immune disorders, heavy metal poisoning, infections, multiple sclerosis and Lyme disease, but not all of these treatments have been approved.
